With the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight now fixed and back in action, all thanks to the patch fix released by Warner Bros. recently, it’s only a short span of time before new mods for the game start to surface. This time, something “super” is looming in, as a Superman mod for the game is in the works, and will release soon!
While there was not much information revealed in the preview trailer of the Superman mod, it’s stirring up the excitement of fans as the mod is sure to come anytime soon. The trailer said: “Don’t be a bird. Don’t be a plane. Be the Superman. Soon!”
Another mod for the game was previously released, where the butler takes center stage. Yes, Mr. Alfred Pennyworth is playable in yet another mod for the PC version of the new Batman game.
Complete with the keys to the Batmobile, Alfred takes on the streets wearing his official butler uniform. And while Alfred had demonstrated toughness and skill, never was he known to have skills close as that of Bruce Wayne/Batman. But in this PC version mod, Alfred can be seen raking down thugs with speed, skill, and stealth as that of The Dark Knight. Alfred can even lurk on top of a street lamp.
However, the creator of Be The Butler PC mod cited some limitations on using Alfred as a playable character.
“I’ve tried to edit some files in Batman: Arkham Knight and finally managed to play as Alfred Pennyworth,” he said. “His moveset is very limited, he cannot perform counter-attacks, environmental takedowns or dual takedowns, but he can still kick plenty of ass.”
The appearance is the only thing that changed, though, as the voice remains to be that of Bruce Wayne’s. Even references and dialogue still call the playable character as the Batman/Bruce.
