Batman: Arkham Knight trailer, release date: Developers explain Batmobile in game; June 23 release date on all platforms


The development team behind the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight videogame shared a few details about the game’s features, particularly the Batmobile.

According to the International Business Times, Rocksteady’s Sefton Hill discussed the importance of the Batmobile in Batman: Arkham Knight in an Arkham Insider developers’ diary.

In the dev diary, Hill explained that the inclusion of the Batmobile was one of the features that they haven’t had the chance to create for the fans of the Batman video games.

“We felt that it was the one thing we hadn’t had a chance to do,” Hill said in the video.

“To deliver the keys to this vehicle, to give the player the freedom of Gotham City … give everyone the chance to drive this and really complete the whole Batman experience,” the developer explained, and added that players will be able to do many things with the Batmobile.

These capabilities include remotely controlling the Batmobile, and the use of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) device that will enable players to stun any drones employed by the Arkham Knight.

Rocksteady also recently released a trailer for the Harley Quinn downloadable content (DLC) pack for Batman: Arkham Knight. According to Gamespot, the Harley Quinn DLC is a prequel to the main “Arkham Knight” game and details Quinn’s mision to rescue Poison Ivy in Bludhaven.

The DLC will include four challenge maps that can be used exclusively when playing the game as Harley Quinn, Gamespot added.

The Harley Quinn DLC was announced in July last year, but will only be available for those that pre-order the full game.

According to the Tech Times, Batman: Arkham Knight will be released on June 23, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

The Lazy Gamer noted that Batman: Arkham Knight for the PC will require powerful specifications, including 8GB of memory, an Intel Core i7-3770, 3.4 GHz or an AMD FX-8350, 4.0 GHz processor, 55 GB of hard disk space and an 3GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 graphics card.
