Here’s How Batman: Arkham Knight Lets You Use Two Characters In Combat



As previously reported, Batman: Arkham Knight will let Batman fight alongside the rest of the Bat-family during combat encounters with enemies. In a new developer diary video, Rocksteady Studios show off how the feature works in more detail.


In the video, we see Batman teaming up with Nightwing to take down a large group of enemies. Arkham Knight’s “Dual Play Combat” system lets you switch between the two characters on-the-fly. If you choose to take control of Nightwing, the AI will take control of Batman and vice-versa.


Other characters that are also available for Dual Play Combat are Catwoman, Robin, and Azrael. Meanwhile, Batgirl is playable in her own DLC story.


Batman: Arkham Knight will be released on June 23rd for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
