Plot

In the explosive finale to the Arkham series, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect. The Scarecrow returns to unite an impressive roster of super villains, including Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, to destroy The Dark Knight forever. A robotic villain named Arkham Knight teams up with the villains to kill Batman. It takes place in the Halloween season.

Gameplay

Batman: Arkham Knight takes place in Gotham City, it is said to be 5 times as big than Arkham City. Unlike Batman: Arkham Origins, the City is totally new and does not include any city sections that was in previous games. The developers have made the streets in the city larger and more spaced out so the player will have room to drive the Batmobile.

The player will be able to drive the Batmobile for the first time in the series. The Batmobile has some features such as a seat that can be used to launch Batman out. The developers have also said that the Batmobile can smash most things in the environment.

Players can also play as Harley Quinn for the first time in the series if they pre-order the game. She includes her own gameplay style, which includes a different fighting style, gadgets, and dialogue.

The developers have also said that since the game is made for next-gen consoles, they are able to do what they wanted. The game will have no load screens when going in or out of buildings and much more. It is said that one of the character models in the game uses as many polygons as the entire environment in Batman: Arkham Asylum, the game also has other graphic-related improvements, such as rain drops or blood dripping down Batman's Batsuit, and Batman's cape blowing around when the wind blows.

More gameplay details will be revealed when it's closer to the game's launch.

Batman: Arkham Knight will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on TBA 2015.
