Batman: Arkham Knight (PC/PS4/XB1, 2014) media & Game Informer details [Up: More] Gaming Discussion
Summary via /co/
>Last Batman game for Rocksteady, will work on something totally new next.
>There will be a brand new villain, something made by Rocksteady that they say will be the ultimate test for Batman
>Batmobile can be called at any moment with a button.
>The city streets are much wider to allow for the batmobile. You will rocket jump off ramps and do all sorts of cool maneuvers.
>You can eject jump out of the batmobile right into a super fast glide straight through the glass of a building to knock out enemies. They said glass breaking will be a big new thing.
>New moves include being able to use all your gadgets during flight. You now have a counter throw where you counter a guy and throw him into another guy. A new quick ground takedown. A quick backflip where you then throw a batarang in an enemies face.
>For the predator sections you can now chain takedowns of up to four enemies. For instance pop out of a grate and take one guy, jump to the next and so on. You can now enter grates from a distance, he will automatically do a jump or roll to enter them.
>Riddler challenges seem to be car based. The first one has you enter a sort of Riddler race track where you have to activate walls and ramps, when you activate one another closes so as you drive you have to be constantly turning on and off these ramps as you navigate the course.
>Batmobile fires missles and stun guns. It destroys anything it touches so if you bump into cars the cars go flying. It’s basically unstoppable.
>Story is that after Joker’s death all the criminals decided to work together and their plan comes together this night where they plan to kill batman. The article talks mostly about Scarecrow, he scattered bombs throughout Gotham.
>Oracle will play a larger role, you get to visit her base and talk to her, tons of batman easter eggs included.
>Kevin Conroy is Batman, all the previous voice actors are back.
>Gotham City is 5 times bigger than AC. Split into 3 areas. NO LOAD TIMES at all, entering buildings is seemless.
>They spend a bunch of time talking about how detailed the models are, one character has more polygons than the environment of Asylum.
Batman will start off with the old batsuit and upgrade at some point in the game.
>It says it is running on their modified Unreal engine.
>All quickfire gadgets can now be used during flight.
>Combat tweaks (note: Not enough time to go over these in detail. for example, you can throw by tilting left towards the opponent and hitting counter)
>did I mention the screenshots are gorgeous?
>Arkham Knight isn’t just the name of the game.. it’s also the name of the [new] villain.
>Fear Takedowns. ie, burst out of grate, action slows down allowing you to target another goon for another attack and so on. Can be used on groups up to 3 as long as they’re close enough together and no one has already spotted Batman.
>They seem to try to tackle the old school Arkham issue of “open door - black screen loading”
- The game looks gorgeous. Huge.
>”This is a single-player game. There is no multiplayer.”
>You can launch into a fast glide from the Batmobile just like the trailer.
>No more pre-rendered cinematics everything is done in engine
>The larger riots can have up to 50 people flipping cars and looting stores.
>Things such as Gordon’s trench coat and Batman’s cape now have Apex cloth physics. They react realistically to changes in wind and movement

>There can be enemy riots, up to 50 enemies on screen at once.
>More Riddler type challenges than just racing.
CHOO CHOO THE HYPE TRAIN HAS ARRIVED ALL ABOARD FOR MASSIVE HYPE
Guys, can we talk about jey? We need to talk about jey.
So apparently these guys are a pretty huge deal. I mean, according to their site they manage 16,000+ channels with a collective 150,000,000 subscribers! A very impressive number for a company with… 186 Twitter followers… no evidence of having more than 2 employees… and…
Actually you know what? Even I don’t even have the energy to be sarcastic about this. Who the fuck are these people? Why are they involved in what appears to be the cheesiest and completely unheard of YouTube “event” in the history of ever? What the actual fuck is this parody of a YouTube network?
An hour of browsing their site and I genuinely wouldn’t be surprised to discover that the North Korean ministry of propaganda was behind it. Their site is drenched in claims of success and delusions of grandeur with absolutely zero evidence to support any of it. "Collaborating with the whole YouTube community!" Can you name… One person?
In other news, NON UK YOUTUBERS, please be wary when accepting invitations to ‘You-Live’, "the words most diverse YouTube event." No one over here has ever heard of these guys or this event. It’s about as sketchy as it gets.
Seriously. What the fuck? Trust no one.
In the aftermath of a tragedy, social media timelines become swamped with people trying to come to terms with their own feelings in glorious real time. It seems that in our new culture of post-privacy, this has come to be expected. One must say something, anything, even if one is at a loss for…
I heard there were some haters on the SSB community on Miiverse
so of course i had to make them more upset.
True love! This guy’s got it!
This story made my heart melt.
There wasn’t much left so it only took a few seconds.
I ACTUALLY CRIED HOLY COW
