    That exactly what I hope the poster is referencing. Azrael's prophecy was too good a setup for another game to just leave it alone.

    But you still start the game as Dick Grayson as Batman

    :D

    Looks like it's time to retitle the thread...

    Have you guys seen the trailer? That's CGI. I hate when they do that because it tells you almost nothing about the actual game.

    Pretty awesome trailer. Certainly looks more interesting that Origins.

    Agreed. We probably just saw the whole opening scene

    The game will probably start with Batman in the middle of the street.

    Looks like a new Batsuit‎ design.

    Eh, it doesn't really bother me when a game's first trailer is mostly or all CGI. Its purpose is mostly to confirm the game's existence and start generating buzz. In-game stuff will come later.

    It is. Infodump from Game Informer:

    No multiplayer
    3 islands, 5 times the area of Arkham City
    Streets wider for the Batmobile, which is an integrated part of the game (like gliding or the grapple)
    Buildings generally taller, too
    Better hang time, longer glides
    Game set one year after Arkham City
    Joker's death has shifted the balance of power (he's still dead)
    Batman starts with his Arkham City suit but quickly gets into a more armor-plated, higher-ability suit
    Gotham has been evacuated and only criminals remain
    Kevin Conroy remains as Batman, all the other villains are still voiced by their respective actors
    50 dudes on screen at once
    Individual raindrops run down Batman's cape and suit
    Line launcher can be fired in mid-air to create a line between two buildings and instant perch point
    All quickfire gadgets can be used during flight, in fact
    Batman now uses weapons that he gets from counters, can beat thugs with a baseball bat until it breaks on their faces
    A new throw counter that counters and throws a thug into another thug
    Batman can summon the Batmobile and it drives to him remotely
    Batmobile shoots EMP missiles that immobilize targets without harming occupants
    Batman can eject from the Batmobile at full speed into a glide
    "Arkham Knight" is actually the name of Batman's main rival in the game
    Riddler challenges now include deadly races
    Oracle exists in-game and can be visited
    Batman can now chain stealth takedowns together, up to 3 times
    No loading screens

    It's just a teaser to confirm the existence of the game, which at this point is fine by me!

    This is the next gen Batman! I want to see what the actual game will look like. I had very little doubt that Rocksteady was working in a 2014 Batman game afterall. I guess I'll see what Game Infirmer has on it.

    And you will get to see that. It's early yet. This is literally the first official announcement of this game; we'll be seeing plenty more before it's released.

    Hmmm, looks like a Tumblerized Burtonmobile. I'm curious how the vehicles will integrate, that will be different.


    If the game visuals weren't 100% ready they'd probably get lambasted for how terrible the game looks. "Next gen? My ass!"

    I don't know what people are worried about. The first Arkham City trailer was also 100% CG, did not depict anything from the final game and yet that still managed to be genuinely reflective of the final product.

    Man, those look fantastic. I really like that shot of the thugs in Chinatown.

    I was just reading over the game info...

    5 times the size of Arkham City?! That's huge!

    Re: Batman: Arkham Knight

    Is it just me or do the character designs seem more Origins based than Asylum/City based?
