Be The Batman
[dropcap size=small]R[/dropcap]ocksteady Studios has released their official “Gotham is Mine” trailer for the upcoming final installment in their Arkham Trilogy.
The trailer, shown below, features Scarecrow’s assembly of the Rogues Gallery, a villainous team of some of Batman’s most criminally insane and dangerous foes. The Penguin, Two-Face, the Riddler, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and the mysterious Arkham Knight join Scarecrow in an attempt to take over Gotham and bring its Dark Knight to his knees.
With the success of its predecessors and Origin prequel, Arkham Knight comes exclusively to current generation consoles, pushing their visuals, power, and performance to the limit. The game, which features the largest playable area for a Batman game to date, introduces new gameplay aspects such as finally being able to sit behind the wheel of the Batmobile and do some major damage to heavy armored foes wreaking havoc to the city during a crippling time of criminal undertaking.
One of the more interesting notes about the game is that it is the first Batman game to feature an M rating, meaning if you are under the 18-year-old age limit, you’ll have to find an adult to get your copy. In a constantly sensitive industry, vendors like Target and GameStop are cracking down on selling mature games to minors, what with angry parents hellbent on filing formal complaints to corporate offices almost daily.
Wal-Mart and Best Buy are two of the most popular places to go when buying and selling games, and have paved the way for strict rules on selling mature games to those under the age of 18. Point is, if the previous Arkham games were rated T for Teen, then it really makes us wonder what level of violence Rocksteady has planned for their finale (we doubt the use of the Batmobile pushes the rating over the edge).
This is more likely the reason behind the M for Mature rating.
Batman: Arkham Knight promises to deliver a twisted, pulse-pounding, vigilant experience unlike any superhero game before it. Say what you will about the genre, but this is one addition to your gaming inventory you surely wont want to miss.
Batman: Arkham Knight will be the final installment in the Arkham Trilogy from Rocksteady. Dawn the cape and cowl, be the Batman this June 2, 2015.
