Batman: Arkham Knight Confirmed for Xbox One
The finale of the Batman: Arkham series is in development with Rocksteady and will play out exclusively on next-gen platforms, Warner Bros. has confirmed today.
Batman: Arkham Knight is the title of the last game in the series, and skips the Xbox 360 this time around, debuting exclusively on Xbox One, PS4, and PC only. Initially, the title was outed by UK retailer GAME this morning, but it has since been revealed that this month's Game Informer cover does indeed feature the new game. On top of that, Warner Bros. have released a trailer entitled "Father to Son" which gives players a sneak peek.
Arkham Knight will release in 2014, and will feature an open-world Gotham City, complete with driveable Batmobile. Those that preorder the game will receive a code that entitles them to play as Harley Quinn, and they'll pick up a bunch of exclusive challenge maps for their trouble, too. Penguin, Two-Face, and Scarecrow are confirmed as being included in the game, which features Batman at "the peak of his powers" according to game director Sefton Hill.
