Summary
-Rocksteady never used the Batmobile in their previous games due to "technical constraints."
-The developers placed a Batmobile in the Arkham City map as an experiment but the results were "disastrous."
-Batman can leap out of the Batmobile while in motion, projecting himself hundreds of feet into the air.
-By simply pressing L1, Batman can call the Batmobile directly to his location, having the ability to jump in the cockpit while the car is driving towards him.
-Due to Batman's vulnerability, the Batmobile is 100% bullet-proof, making it easier to travel around Gotham without getting hurt.
-The Batmobile can smash through lampposts, retaining walls, and fences.
-While in the Batmobile, many thugs will be frightened and run away.
-The Batmobile is equipped with a "defensive taser" to stop carjackers and thieves.
-The Batmobile is installed with a vehicle immobilizer, which fires a nonlethal missile at fleeing cars.
-Unlike Arkham Origins, there will be no fast travel. The Batmobile will be the only form of vehicle transportation.
-The roads and buildings are much larger to accommodate for the Batmobile and its features. There is "a lot more negative space."




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. Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady's uniquely designed version of the Batmobile, which is drivable for the first time in the franchise. The addition of this legendary vehicle, combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Batman Arkham series, offers gamers the ultimate and complete Batman experience as they tear through the streets and soar across the skyline of the entirety of Gotham City. Be The Batman.

It's not plagiarizing if you give them credit, which I have.

Como estan bitches.

It is plagiarizing unfortunately, you copied and pasted their article word for word, that's plagiarism. Not sure how the site is run now, but a couple years ago when I was an editor, all articles like this were deleted for that very reason. Type up your own article, quote the site, and then provide a link to the rest of the interview/article. Whether you agree with it or not, you're article is plagiarized, and lazy, simple as that.

Sounds [frick]ing awesome.
Comedian03 - 3/7/2014, 4:39 PM
And giving them credit doesn't put you in the clear. Have you ever seen YouTube videos using clips from movies or tv shows, or songs, and in the description the person says something along the lines of "No copyright intended, I do not own any of this material", and it still gets taken down? Ever wonder why? Just because you acknowledge where it comes from, doesn't mean it's not plagiarism.

Well, I will just provide the summary I gave then. : )

I'm not trying to be a dick, I'm just trying to inform you about how things work a little better so you can avoid an editor coming along and deleting your article.

The Tumbler will always be the favourite Batmobile for me personally.
I quite like this Arkham Knight Batmobile, everything except the stupid batman branded hubcaps which i've always thought were a bit like the dumbass Joel Schumacher films

You don't come off as a dick to me. Seriously, thanks for the advice : )

Definitely inspired to some degree by the Tumbler. Still, I'm loving the design here. It'll be hard for Batfleck's Batmobile to top this or Nolan's version.

this makes me happy
Enphlieuwince - 3/7/2014, 5:48 PM
It reminds me of this concept...

i don't know if anyone's mentioned this but that second picture looks like an armored version of tim burtons 89 batmobile but i'm guessing its just the angle that makes it look like that.

@Comedian03

Don't be a dick.

The Batmobile looks great, however, it's still not as cool as the Tumbler. I hope Snyder gives Batman a tank. It's the way forward.
