Join Greg Giddens and Steve Peacock and for a new episode of the This is Xbox Podcast – episode 26 BvS…I Mean Videogames. In this episode the pair discuss Quantum Break, Resident Evil 6 and Arkham Knight briefly, before falling down the rabbit hole of Batman Vs Superman, and of course the usual silly banter you’d expect.
Earlier this week, Rocksteady Studios announced that Batman: Arkham Knight would be receiving a Season Pass that had quite the price tag – naturally this was met with widespread disappointment from fans, mainly feeling that the pass should have at least been included in some of the more expensive Arkham Knight editions.
The content of the pass is due to be delivered during the six months following the game’s release, and while the team at Rocksteady aren’t ready to share the full content of what the pass includes, they are aware that they are asking a lot from fans – with a pass that is nearly as expensive as the game itself. Rocksteady have therefore decided to reveal some of the Season Pass content, which has certainly piqued my interest!
Earlier today the trailer below leaked ahead of its release, it seems to be the in thing at the moment, Warner Brothers have now officially lifted the lid on the “All who follow you” trailer and it looks awesome!
If you’re trying to keep a closed lid on everything Dark Knight, then you may want to avoid this trailer, as it shows of a load of characters and some really neat new stuff.
Right, so there’s the spoiler alert klaxon sounded… now on to the awesome stuff. The trailer shows off some great new features, like co-op take downs, something that Rocksteady said wouldn’t happen. It does however look like they’ve taken on board feedback from community forums and made it to be an AI controlled co-operative skull mashing rather than the standard local/online co-op that we all know and love.
There are also returning characters such as Catwoman, Robin and Nightwing who played parts in the previous Arkham games. You may also spot Azrael lighting up Gotham’s skyline with rooftop fires.
The trailer still leaves a lot of questions, which is good, I can’t wait to get my hands on it when it releases in June.
Warner Bros has today announced that Batman: Arkham Knight is scheduled to release worldwide beginning June 2nd 2015, with not one, but two collector’s editions! Both, Batman: Arkham Knight Limited Edition and Batman: Arkham Knight Batmobile Edition, will be available in limited quantities at launch in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand for Xbox One (and other platforms)

Batman: Arkham Knight brings the award-winning Batman: Arkham trilogy from Rocksteady Studios to its epic conclusion. Developed exclusively for the New Generation of consoles and PCs, Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady’s uniquely designed version of the Batmobile. The highly anticipated addition of this legendary vehicle, combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Batman: Arkham series, offers gamers the ultimate and complete Batman experience as they tear through the streets and soar across the skyline of the entirety of Gotham City. In this explosive finale, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city that he is sworn to protect, as Scarecrow returns to unite the super criminals of Gotham and destroy the Batman forever.
Just before E3, Rocksteady confirmed the sad news that the third and final chapter in their Batman Trilogy ‘Arkham Knight’ was to be delayed till 2015. Reports in the last week suggested a possible January release for the game.
But over the weekend, Microsoft’s Xbox Store was showing a listing for Arkham Knight with a February 24th release date for the game on the Xbox One.
It is not uncommon for online stores to use ‘Placeholders’ to list items before they are released, but normally it is the pricing that gets the most attention. Nothing has been confirmed by Rocksteady so far, but if it is legit, it is a good indication of how 2015 will start off with a bang!
After a leak earlier today by GAME, Rocksteady and WB Games have officially announced ‘Arkham: Knight’ for Xbox One.In the explosive finale to the Arkham series, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect.
