Batman: Arkham Asylum Summary
Rocksteady is finishing their trilogy of the Arkham series, and they're excited to be able to combine the level of detail of Arkham Asylum and the open world approach of Arkham City. The art team can 'just go for it'.
Batman: Arkham Knight ditches the asylum and the walled off Arkham for the full Gotham City. Rocksteady also say they're their own 'inspiration' because of the trajectory set.
UPDATE: Next Game Informer issue features Batman: Arkham Knight. Prepares 4 minute debut trailer for 10.00 AM Central Time. Set in new area of Gotham City 'far larger' than Arkham.
The Batmobile is a 'core element' of Arkham Knight with streets made much wider to accommodate the iconic vehicle that until now had only been briefly used as a set piece in the Arkham series.
