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 supervillains, including Penguin, Two-Face, Harley Quinn, Firefly, Poison Ivy, and Riddler to destroy The Dark Knight forever. The most intriguing member of this alliance, however, is the deadly and enigmatic Arkham Knight.
Batman: Arkham Knight takes place in Gotham City, and is said to be five times bigger than Arkham City. Unlike Batman: Arkham Origins, the city is totally new and does not include any city sections that were 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 features such as a seat that can be used to launch Batman out, and non-lethal mounted guns. The developers have also said that the Batmobile will be able to 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 finally have the freedom to do what they have always wanted with the series. One small perk of being on next-gen consoles is that the game will have no load screens when going in or out of buildings. 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 billowing around when the wind blows.
It's also been confirmed that you can use gadgets in mid-air. With this addon the player can be more strategic with enemy encounters. Not much has been said about what gadgets Batman can use in mid-air, but the trusty batarang has been confirmed to be usable in mid-air combat. Confirmed returning gadgets are the Batarang, Freeze Blast, Remote Electrical Charge Gun, and Explosive Gel.
Players will be able to attack and do special attacks on enemies with an ally such as Robin, Nightwing, Catwoman, and, possibly, Jason Todd. An example of this is Robin swinging Batman on his bo-staff.
Players will also be able to switch between characters such as Robin, Nightwing, Catwoman, and more!
