UPDATE: Batman-News.com has read the latest issue of Game Informer and has shared new details concerning the game:

GENERAL INFO:
- Next-gen only.
- Single player only. No multiplayer.
- Arkham Knight isn’t just the name of the game, it’s also the name of a brand new villain. Rocksteady is working with DC’s Geoff Johns to create the character from scratch.
- Batman starts the game in the Arkham City suit, but gets a new costume early on.
- Takes place in a central zone of Gotham City split into 3 islands. 5 times bigger than Arkham City.
- The level of detail in Gotham City is some of the most impressive Game Informer has ever seen in a video game.
- Takes place one year after Arkham City.
- With The Joker dead, Gotham’s villains come together to try to take down Batman.
- Scarecrow, Two-Face, Penguin, and Harley Quinn are all confirmed.
- Kevin Conroy is back as Batman. Troy Baker is Two-Face, Nolan North is Penguin, Tara Strong is Harley Quinn, and Wally Wingert is Ridder.
- Batman visits with Oracle in the game, she’s not just a voice in his earpiece anymore.
- Cut scenes are all done in game, so it doesn’t feel like you’re playing a game and then watching a movie.
- The characters are incredibly detailed. One has the polygon count of Arkham Aslyum, the whole environment.
- Batman’s cape and character’s clothing reacts realistically to wind and movement.
- All quick-fire gadgets can now be used during flight.
- Batman can perform a quick ground strike to downed opponents.
- Interrogations are back.
- Batman can incorporate the environment into his combat combos like never before.
- Fear takedowns allow Batman to take out multiple enemies in slow motion, as long as he isn’t spotted.
- This is Rocksteady’s last Batman game. There will be a clear ending to their Arkham trilogy. It’s possible that WB Games Montreal may still make Batman games set in the Arkham Origins time period.

BATMOBLIE INFO
- Rocksteady set out to make the best car in any game ever.
- It’s so detailed it would take up the space of an entire Xbox 360 game.
- It’s the only drive-able vehicle.
- Players can bring the Batmobile to their location with the press of a button.
- It can do burnouts, jumps, boosts, and even rotate in circles at a full stop to get you pointed in the right direction.
- It can smash through barricades, trees, and building corners.
- Batman can eject out of the Batmobile and go directly into gliding through the city.

mvpreston2 - 3/4/2014, 2:14 PM

Moohika - 3/4/2014, 2:14 PM
I still can't get over how sick the new suit and batmobile look, how the hell is Zach Snyder going to top that?!
themidnightking - 3/4/2014, 2:15 PM
Badass!
Tony93 - 3/4/2014, 2:15 PM
Is anyone else tired of Harley Quin??
Tony93 - 3/4/2014, 2:16 PM
I have a feeling the suit is gonna look like that.. Btw he seemed to look a bit like Affleck in the vid
staypuffed - 3/4/2014, 2:18 PM
Where did you find those details, BJ?
GeneralZod1138 - 3/4/2014, 2:18 PM
@mvpreston2

Takes place 1 year after Arkham City
MrNiklander - 3/4/2014, 2:18 PM
MrBlackJack info about the game and that art
Hugh Jackman is Shocked
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 3/4/2014, 2:21 PM
Okay... Someone explain the timeline of Arkham Knight. In City, Bruce is late 30's and bulky. Yet in this, he is smaller and looks a good 10 years younger. Scarecrow had escaped in City, so it makes sense for him to appear here as the main villain. Harley looks a lot younger here as well. So... Is it post City cause if that's the case, Batman has a case of Benjamin Button.
sappro - 3/4/2014, 2:23 PM
The case of Benjamin Affleck haha
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 3/4/2014, 2:24 PM
So... It's not for 360...
Pasto - 3/4/2014, 2:25 PM
I am the hero CBM needs....but not the one it deserves...
JoeMomma29 - 3/4/2014, 2:27 PM
NO 360 or PS3! You guys need to pony up or have your mommy an daddy pony up some cash for a XBOX One or PS4........
BubSnikt - 3/4/2014, 2:31 PM
I hope Riddler is in the main story, not just a side mission
ComicFan523 - 3/4/2014, 2:31 PM
What I'm about to say is more of a criticism of the advertising than the game itself, but every piece of advertising I see for this game has the Batmobile in it, it makes it seem like they're using it as some kind of crutch for an average game. Every previous Arkham title was very character oriented, I hope this one is the same thing.
DefcoN - 3/4/2014, 2:34 PM
5 times bigger than Arkham City?? Holy [frick]ing sh*t!!
JoeMomma29 - 3/4/2014, 2:35 PM
@ ComicFan

Ummmm it is the exact opposite, they are showing the car because it is the first time you can drive a vehicle in the game..........yeah that is a big deal to a lot of the fans of this franchise.
Klone - 3/4/2014, 2:36 PM
AWESOME! Pleas have Azrael and Nightwing!
TheRationalNerd - 3/4/2014, 2:36 PM
Will you be able to explore the Wayne Mansion?? :o
Klone - 3/4/2014, 2:36 PM
With the influence of big DCAU heads I think they may then do a Superman Rocksteady trilogy before then doing an entire DC Gaming Universe with everyone else and the JL.
ManofSteel23 - 3/4/2014, 2:37 PM
I dont get whats so appealing with these games THERE ALL THE SAME! nothing is new about them apart from the free roaming in the second one and onwards,meh cash cow
manoftomorrow13 - 3/4/2014, 2:38 PM
CONROY!!!!!!
JoeMomma29 - 3/4/2014, 2:41 PM
@ ManofSteel

Each game has been awesome even if the game play is similar etc.....The story lines are awesome. My son and I have played each game twice and we are still not bored of these games.

Heck the same can be said about Zelda but I can replay those games all the time without getting bored.
TheRationalNerd - 3/4/2014, 2:41 PM
There's got to be more villains though?
-Man Bat
-Hush
-Black Mask (present day)
-Maxie Zeus
-Great White Shark

Will Robin and/or Nightwing make featured appearances?

SpiderFraud - 3/4/2014, 2:42 PM
@ManofSteel

I kinda agree. I really didn't care for the last one for those reasons but this game seems like it could be really good. The story of the previous games are pretty good.

For the simple fact this game is PC/Current Gen focus, makes me really hyped..
Moohika - 3/4/2014, 2:44 PM
Red Hood must be in the game! Please Rocksteady.
Klone - 3/4/2014, 2:46 PM
It has to be the ending. Hush, Scarecrow, Azrael. All loose ends must be tied up.
Irohny - 3/4/2014, 2:46 PM
I hate in-game cut scenes, I enjoy watching them.

Other than that, I am so ready.
SpiderFraud - 3/4/2014, 2:48 PM
I hope we get some type of Court of Owls sub-plot or at least Talon popping up.
Pasto - 3/4/2014, 2:49 PM
I know I'll have my hands full keeping these thugs in check. So I could find a little help, in my friends.
TheRationalNerd - 3/4/2014, 2:49 PM
One thing that I was hoping that would be featured in this game were the citizens of Gotham. It would've been pretty cool to save random pedestrians here and there but I'm not mad at all. The visuals look beautiful. I knew two Face would be back, his downloadable content was pretty cool but I just felt like we didn't see enough of him in Arkham City. I would like to have a one on one brawl with the modern Killer Croc. Scarecrow's role really ponders me. And "Arkham Knight" being a made-up villain sounds pretty interesting and questionable as well. My guess is that it'll be a classic villain who'll have the title "Arkham Knight" to hide his/her true identity. Just my lucky guess though....
TheArachnidAvenger - 3/4/2014, 2:50 PM
Why don't they make a movie like this?
TheRationalNerd - 3/4/2014, 2:52 PM
@MBJ

That sounds great!! Looking forward to it. That trailer alone already gives the game a 7/10 lol
DelTorite - 3/4/2014, 2:53 PM
No Multiplayer.
[frick]ing awesome.
I want a Nightwing DLC.
SpiderFraud - 3/4/2014, 2:54 PM
I wanna see some spin offs from this universe with some other DC characters. I would also like some good Marvel games.
