Rocksteady unveils the character Arkham Knight refers to

When the next Batman game by Rocksteady was announced as Batman: Arkham Knight, many people assumed that the subtitle referred to Batman himself, he is often called The Dark Knight after all. Rocksteady have revealed that the subtitle in fact refers to a totally new character and not the caped crusader himself.

This character isn’t just new to the Arkham games but is an entirely new character in the Batman universe who was developed in collaboration with DC comics. So far all we know about the character is that he’s some kind of more badass looking Batman (if that’s possible) and seems to have enough high tech gear to put Bruce Wayne to shame. He seems to be a foe of Bats but other than that we have no idea on his true identity or his motives.

Gotham will be 5x bigger in Arkham Knight than it was in Arkham City

Gatham will be “roughly five times” bigger in Arkham Knight than the one we explored in Arkham City says developer Rocksteady. However, it’s not just about the size.

“As we’ve said before with Arkham City, it’s not about the scale as much as the detail,” said game director Sefton Hill in the latest issue of Game Informer. “We want to make sure the world is rich and full of interesting things to do. We’re not trying to create the biggest open-world game ever. We are trying to create a really rich, vibrant, dense open world.”
