Batman: Arkham Knight Screenshots Introduce The Arkham Knight

Warner Bros. have released new screenshots of Batman: Arkham Knight, the next open-world Batman game from Rocksteady Studios. The game is in development for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

 

“Arkham Knight” is both the name of the game as well as a new villain that Batman will face. The screenshot above shows the Arkham Knight character in a costume that looks similar to Batman’s, with the addition of a firearm.

 

Batman: Arkham Knight is scheduled for release this Fall.

    The screens are looking nice. I’d rather see some gameplay, and the Arkham Knight in action, but for now I’m satisfied with this quick glimpse we’ve been given.

    For that matter, the Arkham Knight looks cool, but I hope s/he has a quality story to go along with them.

      Hm… “She.” It’d be an interesting twist if it ended up being a woman behind that bulky armor. Though I wouldn’t want them to have a female villain just for the sake of it. As you said, a quality story would be greatly appreciated. And hopefully it doesn’t just end up being Joker AGAIN.

        They’ve said flat out that Joker isn’t in the game. They felt it would be cheap to bring him back. Plus, Joker’s never really been the athletic type, and they wouldn’t try to shove that in out of the blue.

        I was thinking along the lines of Mask of the Phantasm when I though she. That and it would be cool to have a female villain who can fight just as well as Batman.

        There’s a lot of cool story potential to having the Arkham Knight turn out to be female.

        As to Joker, I would hate to see him again and thankfully it’s not sounding like it will be another Joker game.

    The Arkham Knight reminds me a lot of the recently re-introduced villain, The Wrath, from a recent Detective Comics arc.

    am gonna make my imagination go wild and say: i hope that’s Jason Todd

  • Six

    I will be buying a next-gen (current-gen, whatevs) machine for this.

  • SauriansMaster!!

    It’s Damien Wayne
    the persona ‘arkham knight’ is the new character

  • Death Metal

    It’s looking gourgeous. Maybe the best looking title for next gen so far? Those might as well be PC screenshots, though.

  • David García Abril

    Anyone else betting on Jason Todd, a.k.a. the second Robin, a.k.a. the Red Hood?

    For the true identity of the Arkham Knight, I mean.

    • Six

      Definitely the most popular theory going around right now.

    • ToshiChan

      My theory is that it could be Hush since he slinked away and probably needs to come back.

    Looks like the space marines’ football team.

  • Asclepius

    Prometheus, anyone?

    He looks like batman from the future.

  • Dianatos

    Random, not-serious ideas on Arkham Knight’s identity:

    -Terry McGinnis, because he looks like a Batman… of the Future.

    -Cyril Sheldrake, because he’s the British Batman equivalent, Knight. Just add Arkham to his name.

    Wonder if the visuals are gonna get down graded.

    Not sure if I’m digging the pinch of chromatic-abberation.

    It needs more Adam West.
