When it comes to Batman I have spent more time in the Rocksteady's Gotham/Arkham than in any other form of media. I love the Nolan/Bale films and there are comic runs that are special. However with Arkham Asylum Rocksteady crafted a complex tale with an interactivity that up to that point I had not experienced. Now with the Brititsh developer back at at the helm it looks like Arkham Knight will be my game to look out for in 2014 (Paul).
Below is the first official gameplay trailer and it looks mouthwatering to say the least.
Batman: Arkham Knight is based on DC Comics’ core Batman license and will be available exclusively for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC.
Any time you transition to a new platform, there is the opportunity to look at things with a new perspective. For us at 343 Industries, the launch of the Xbox One was an opportunity to think about what stories we wanted to tell, how to tell them, and how best to push the Halo franchise to showcase the platform. And maybe, most importantly, combining our passion for Halo with the vocal and informative input from our fans.
When Xbox first announced the One tournament it seemed intriguing but little did we know that One of our own was so deep into some cryptid crushing that he would get featured in the competition.
