Arkham Knight’s Next DLC Lets You Suit Up As Micheal Keaton’s Batman

Warner Bros. has revealed the next batch of DLC for Batman: Arkham Knight. In August, season pass owners will be treated to new race tracks, several new skins — including the costume worn by Micheal Keaton in the 1989 Batman move, and the iconic Batmobile from the same film.

  • 1989 Movie Batmobile Pack:  Battle through the streets of Gotham City with this pack that includes the Batman skin and Batmobile from the 1989 Batman film, as well as two tracks inspired by the film’s sequel.
  • The Bat-family Skins Pack:  Included in this pack are six character skins based on the alternate timelines – – 1990s Catwoman, One Year Later Robin, Arkham Origins Batman, Iconic Grey & Black Batman, 1970s Batman and the Original Arkham Nightwing.

Players can purchase the season pass for $40, which will give them early access to Batgirl’s DLC, releasing later today. Non season pass holders will have to wait until next Tuesday to download “A Matter of Family“.

Batman: Arkham Knight’s Batmobile Edition Has Been Cancelled

The Batmobile Edition for Rocksteady’s Batman: Aarkham Knight has been scrapped, according to user on NeoGaf. Rtbeoh posted a photo of the email they received from UK retailer GAME, which states that due to “unforeseen circumstances that greatly comprised the quality of the Batmobile”, Warner Bros decided to cancel the entire thing.

What’s odd about this whole scenario is how close we are to the release of the game. Hopefully whatever catastrophe that befell the Batmobile statues was rather recent, and WB weren’t sitting on this information for a while. Fans who purchased the Batmobile Edition will have no choice but to purchase the standard edition (Or Red Hood) of the game, since the Limited Edition has been sold out for months.

Batman: Arkham Knight releases on June 23, for PS4, PC and Xbox One.

Rumor: Batman Arkham Knight – Release Date Leaked

International Gurus of iNsanity are at it again with the latest Rumor. According to a listing on Microsoft’s Xbox Games Store the next Batman game, Arkham Knight, will see a release on February 24, 2015. This is making February a pretty overbooked month already with The Order: 1886 hitting PS4 exclusively on February 20, 2015 and The Witcher III dropping the very same day as this Arkham Knight date. Is it a placeholder date? Or is it the real thing?

“Next Gen Is Here”

Those were the words of our E3 floor runner Alos Tucker who joined the RGN E3 Round Table this year and heard direct from his source at Warner Bros that the Batmobile alone in Arkham Knight is made up of more pixels / polygons than 2 of the previous Batman games combined. Arkham Knight also comes with exclusive Scarecrow Nightmare missions on the PlayStation 4 version of the game.

Excitement is high from many various crowds, not just those dedicated to this franchise, as Arkham Knight approaches a release window some time next year.

Holy Delay Batman! ‘Arkham Knight’ Pushed Back until 2015, New Batmobile Footage Revealed

Well the list of 2014 video game releases just got a little less crowded as Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Knight has been delayed until 2015. It joins the seemingly ever growing list of games pushed back until next year, including The Order: 1886 and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Tom Clancy’s The Division.

I know I know, it’ll be alright.

The reason for the delay? Well, pretty much the same reason for the other string of recent delays; more polish and delivering what they envisioned. Rocksteady Studios marketing manager Guy Perkins spoke with Gamespot on the matter.

“We just want to make this the best experience that we can, and that takes time,” Perkins explained. “We feel that we have an absolutely awesome game in the works, and we want to make it as great as it possibly can be. We just need more time to do that. If we didn’t give the team more time to do it, then we would be releasing something that we weren’t happy with. We want to make sure we’re absolutely nailing it 100 percent.”

As is the norm when announcing delays, Warner Bros. has released a new trailer to help soften the blow to our hearts (Our Wallets are breathing a sigh of relief though). The ‘Batmobile Battle Mode’ reveal trailer offers a brief glimpse of the Dark Knight’s bada** ride when it enters you guessed it, Battle Mode. The Batmobile transforms into a sick looking tank and is outfitted with multiple devastating weapons including:

  • 60mm Cannon that use kinect energy as ammunition
  • Vulcan Gun – An anti-tank weapon that uses armor piercing rounds is also great for surface to air combat
  • Missile Barrage – Laser/GPS guided and can target up to 6 hostiles simultaneously
  • Riot Suppressor –  Uses non-lethal rounds for suppressing…um…riots

Speaking of the Batmobile, Guy Perkins also discussed the reason why fans will now finally get to drive it in Arkham Knight and why the newest Batman title won’t be coming to PS3 , Xbox 360 and Wii U. “The Batmobile is one thing we just couldn’t do on previous gen. It’s not just a case of having a car, it’s a case of building a city where the car feels at home,” Perkins said. “So if we were to try and bring the Batmobile into Arkham City, for example, the streets aren’t conducive to that driving experience. You have to create a much bigger environment to house the vehicle.”

“Gotham City is five times larger than the game world of Arkham City. And by virtue of having a bigger city, you need more memory and more horsepower to just make that happen,” Guy elaborated.

“Not only that, but the detailed character models for Batman: Arkham Knight would be too much for last-generation hardware, Perkins said. “The details on the models we have is insanely huge at this moment–the detail on Batman alone is phenomenal,” he said. “Having these current-gen platforms [Xbox One and PS4] allows us to really flex our muscles in terms of art and animation, and we’re building everything to make it look as good as it possibly can. The beauty is our engine team can now say yes to our artists; before they were always struggling with what they have available. But now it’s more a case of, ‘What can’t we do?’ and, ‘Where can we push it even harder?'”

Batman: Arkham Knight is sounding very promising, the developers seem determined to have their last Batman title go out with a bang. The Batmobile is a beast of vehicle and Rocksteady promises that we will see unleashed at next weeks E3. I.cannot.wait! Check it out below and stay tuned to RGN for all things Batman.

Behold the Batmobile in Action in Batman: Arkham Knight’s First Gameplay Video

Warner Bros Interactive have released a gameplay video for Developer Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Knight and it looks amazing. It’s only 2 minutes but it is a glorious 2 minutes filled with destruction, some of it caused by the Dark Knight’s ride as it tears through the streets (and everything else) of Gotham.

Fans have been asking for the chance to drive the Batmobile since ‘Batman: Arkham Asylum’ and Rocksteady looks to have delivered that opportunity in the best possible way. Oh and the video also features Batman beating the crap out of thugs and such, Gotham under siege, a brief glimpse of the Arkham Knight (Not Batman) and is that…Scarecrow narrating? Sure sounds like it.

Batman: Arkham Knight launches on October 14th for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Zack Synder Teases Pic of New Batmobile for ‘Batman vs. Superman’ movie

Director Zack Synder (300, Man of Steel), took to twitter today to give Batman fans a glimpse of the Batmobile in the upcoming sequel to Man of Steel. Based on Snyder’s tweet, the full reveal will be tomorrow. We don’t see much but it is definitely much sleeker than the Tumbler in Chris Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. Check it out below.

 

Another look.

Batman vs. Superman or whatever DC officially calls it is set for a May 6, 2016 release and will star Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Amy Adams as Lois Lane.
