Another Batman game is in development. Dubbed Arkham Knight, this latest chapter is due before the end of the year, probably during the usual holiday rush. More importantly, perhaps, it's being created by the same folks who started the Arkham series. Rocksteady Studios is back in the driver's seat, and its first trailer for Arkham Knight provides a sense of what's in store.
The introductory footage is devoid of actual gameplay, but the Batmobile features heavily. Arkham Knight will be the first in the series to introduce vehicular action. That should be an interesting addition to the formula, especially if the series continues on its path toward a more open-world approach.
Brawling and detective work will undoubtedly be part of the game, as well, and I hope the combat system continues to evolve. The most recent Arkham Origins chapter made some nice tweaks but didn't attempt anything too drastic. That game was helmed by Warner Brothers Montreal, which was apparently keeping the franchise warm for Rocksteady's return.
Without a sense of how Arkham Knight plays, it's hard to get too excited about the game. My curiosity has been piqued, though. This looks like one of the titles to watch in 2014.
