Batman Arkham Knight will be obviously be bigger than Arkham city actually 5 times bigger than Batman Arkham city. Recently Guy perkins who is the marketing director spoke to IGN and said many things (by many I mean so much). They want to make Batman Arkham Knight the ”ultimate batman simulator”. The game has evolved very much from Arkham Asylum to Arkham Origins now Arkham knight is the last one. Here what Guy Perkins said:
“I think we’ve always taken pride in the stories we tell,” he explained. “We try to create that very cinematic story-telling experience through the game. Obviously Asylum was the starting point for that, but the intimate cat-and-mouse gameplay between the Joker and Batman really demanded it took place in the pressure cooker of the Asylum.
“So that had its place for that story, but then we took that into the open world to give players the next piece of the Batman armour as it were, which is the grappling gun and the ability to glide. The introduction of those pieces really required a bigger game world to support them, but then the big thing that was always missing for us was the Batmobile. It was always missing, but wouldn’t have worked in Asylum or City, so to build an open-world around that was crucial.
“The narrative is still very defined, though, there’s definite acts that you clearly understand as you go through Arkham Knight. We’ve been conscious to create a rich story that’s interesting for newcomers and for fans alike. You can go off and do your side quests when you like, but it’s still a linear story in the sense that it has a beginning, middle and an end.”
Well since joker died in Arkham City then he came in the prequel Arkham origins now all the arkham games have joker but Arkham Knight will not have. The Gotham city has never felt more safer when joker died but the moment batman took a breath the moment when many batman villains joined together to kill him. Guy perking said making an original villain is very much fun, but that also means a very old Batman villain would return which is scarecrow.
“The death of the Joker at the end of Arkham City has created a different world for the criminals of Arkham Knight,” he explained. “He’s not there to disrupt the things they’re doing, so you have to imagine a world where he’s not there and not causing that chaos. They can get organized, work together and offer a more formidable challenge. He’s at the peak of his powers, but without his nemesis there to cock things up for everyone else, then they get the chance to be a bit stronger, a bit braver and do things differently.
“Joker going was a challenge, but we left Scarecrow out of Arkham City for a reason so he’s back in as the big bad and it’s great for us to bring him back. He has so many iconic moments in the first game, to have him back as the Big Bad is really cool. He’s a great mirror for Batman, as they both use fear as a weapon of choice. There’s a dichotomy there. Then working with DC to bring the Arkham Knight to life has been amazing. We were super excited and it’s been a huge honor for us to do something this big.”
Batman Arkham was originally never meant to be created, but to fill up the gap between Batman Arkham city and Arkham knight they created it. Now Arkham knight is in development for many years it is sure gonna rock.
“If people walk away thinking this is the ultimate Batman simulator, then our job is complete,” he says. “We gave them Gotham City, we gave them Batman at the height of his powers and we gave them the Batmobile. I think those three elements come together to make a great game. If people go away feeling like it was awesome, we’ve done a good job.”
Batman Arkham Knight will release for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox one on June 2, 2015.
