Yesterday's voice talent announcement
and Batgirl character reveal was seemingly just the tip of information that Rocksteady is willing to provide for the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight
title. Since there is so much interest in further details about the game, the developers have put together an ongoing series that they are calling Arkham Insider
to discuss things such as game development and what players can expect.
In the first episode, Rocksteady goes in depth about the recently released trailer "All Who Follow You." In the video, the developer team provides us with insight on various topics including how the 'dual play' system will work during combat.
We learn that there will be plot revelations about the Commissioner Gordon/ Barbara Gordon relationship dynamic and we also get confirmation that Scarecrow will be the main antagonist of the game, despite the plethora of villains that Batman and company will have to contend with. Insight as to Azrael's relationship with Batman and how he feels to be the appropriate savior that Gotham City needs, is revealed and the Arkham Knight was purposely fashioned in Batman's likeness in order to play into the plot as it progresses.
Towards the end of the video, a set of community questions are asked revealing that players will have the ability to take out tanks with or without the Batmobile; there will be new uses for Batman's many gadgets during combat and Batman skin variations will not need to be unlocked but will be readily available at the start of the game.
At this point not much is left to do but to sharpen some Batarangs, rotate the Batmobile's tires and amass the many gangs of Gotham. Rocksteady has confirmed we will receive further information and insider videos in the days to come before the June 23rd release on Xbox One.
