Batman: Arkham Knight Archives - Robot 6 @ Comic Book Resources
Batman: Arkham Knight will close out Rocksteady Studios’ hit game series with a bang and, it seems, an “M for Mature” rating.
IGN reports that while previous games — Arkham Asylum, Arkham City and Arkham Origins — were rated “T for Teen,” the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) determined this chapter is suitable for ages 17 and up, to the surprise of the developers.
After a little social-media teasing, GameStop has announced the Red Hood Story Pack DLC will be available exclusively to customers who preorder Batman: Arkham Knight from the retailer.
Developed by Rocksteady for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment, Batman: Arkham Knight is billed as the explosive finale to the hit action-adventure video game series that launched in 2009 with Batman: Arkham Asylum. (For a complete rundown, read CBR’s coverage of the closed-door demo at E3 2014.)
Mattel has revealed a lineup of Comic-Con International exclusives that includes Cyborg and Doomsday action figures, the Batman: Arkham Knight Batmobile and — get this — a replica of the Caped Crusader’s utility belt from the 1966 TV series.
I would delve into all of the other offerings, like the Hot Wheels Darth Vader die-cast car or the Masters of the Universe figures, but you’re probably more interested in that utility belt (so I’ll leave the rest of that stuff to USA Today).
“Tonight, Gotham falls!” Scarecrow declares in the debut gameplay trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight. “A city of fear rises!”
Unveiled this morning by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment, “Evening the Odds” showcases the Scarecrow’s return to Gotham as he schemes to unite the city’s villains — Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, among them — toward one goal: destroying Batman. As the citizens flee and criminal gangs overrun the city, the Dark Knight takes to the streets in the new Batmobile, which is drivable for the first time in the franchise.
