New Batman: Arkham City Screenshots Give You A Glimpse Of Gotham

Rocksteady Studios are hard at work on the sequel to last year’s Batman: Arkham Asylum with Batman: Arkham City set in a closed-off district of Gotham City dedicated to housing criminals. Warner sent a few updated screenshots of the game along while everyone waits for its far-off Fall 2011 release.

Harley Quinn has a bit of a different look in Arkham City as well. Click the images below to enlarge:

And finally, here’s some concept art for Arkham City from Rocksteady. The alley shot gives me a very Batman movie (1989 with Michael Keaton) vibe:

    Harley looks delicious.

      Rooftop gliding looks delicious.

      Yea, Harley looks hot, Trip too in Enslaved. This looks even better than the first game, can’t wait. Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill are still doing the voices right? I wonder why they didn’t do it for “Under the Red Hood”, even though Bruce Greenwood did a pretty good job, Joker was weird though.

      • Yea, this is supposed to be Mark Hamill’s last Joker role. :(

        • I hope they don’t try to get a new VA, and they have some surprise new villain orchestrating the whole thing in Batman Arkham X 3

          • (reply to both comments above)

            Yea, I don’t think they should milk the Joker a third time around. Batman has plenty of other great villains that he shares an intense rivalry with.

            I’m kind of hoping the next game is Batman Beyond though…

        • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

          Somehow I have a feeling that means the Joker will die in this game. Or if there’s a next game it might be a prequel.

        • Aoshi00

          Is Hamill retiring or just tired of doing Joker, well I guess he isn’t that young anymore. Too bad he wasn’t in Red Hood, the movie was so good, but wouldn’t been much better w/ his Joker..

    This looks incredible. And all the stuff I read just makes me want it even more. Rocksteady already have the game playable from start to finish, so I’m expecting an EXTREMELY polished game, and we all know that’s exactly what we will get.

    This, Versus and Rising are my “holy trinity” of most expected games <3

  • First game was one of the best games last year, here’s hoping that this will be one of the best games next year!

    omg Harley Quinn looks a thousand times better. In the lastgame her hair looks like globs of hardened paint; often seen in bad Unreal 3 Engine use (see: Wonderwoman in Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe)

  • Code

    Can’t wait >w< My friend had to get me to give the first one a try, and upon trying it, was absolutely floored by it's quality, not just as a franchisee game but as a game itself. Was so very impressed by it handling of elements like combat and stealth, it was always fun and never really crossed the line into being daunting or tedious for me.
