Batman: Arkham Knight may feature an add-on story mission starring the violent vigilante Red Hood, according to allegedly leaked GameStop promotional materials posted by Batman News. The above picture — in addition to the previously-announced playable Harley Quinn DLC — mentions the Red Hood Story Pack, in which players can "play as the ruthless vigilante." The picture also notes the pack is pre-order bonus and exclusive to GameStop. Yesterday afternoon, GameStop tweeted a blurry image of what looks like the Red Hood character shown in the above materials. The tweet mentions an announcement connected to the image and a "big game" coming today, July 23. In Batman lore, the Red Hood's identity has frequently changed, but one of his first incarnations was as the Joker's original form in...

The PlayStation 4-exclusive downloadable content for Batman: Arkham Knight will feature players facing off against a giant version of the villain Scarecrow and an entire city tripping on hallucinogens, according to the game's listing on the PlayStation website. The Arkham Knight page mentions the "Scarecrow Nightmare Pack," during which Scarecrow's powerful nightmare-inducing toxins spread throughout the city of Gotham, making Batman's job a lot harder. "Gotham falls victim to Scarecrow's fear toxin, transforming the famous city into a twisted, hellish nightmare in the Batman: Arkham Knight Scarecrow Nightmare Pack," reads the description. "Tear through the city in the all-new Batmobile and face off against a towering vision of Scarecrow and his undead army as they spread terror on...

Recently delayed game Batman: Arkham Knight is coming out this January, according to Kevin Conroy, the voice of Batman in the game. "I have a massive game you may have heard of called Arkham Knight," Conroy said, speaking to Groovey.TV at the Denver Comic-Con last week. (It's at the 5:10 mark) "It was supposed to come out in January, we've been working on it for a year and a half, it's still not done. So it's going to come out next January, but I know everyone is frustrated. "The reason it's been delayed is because it's so awesome." The Rocksteady Studio game was delayed into 2015, according to a trailer released for the game during E3. Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment initially said the game, which is coming to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One, was set for a...

Batman: Arkham Knight, Rocksteady Studios' return to the Arkham franchise it created, has been delayed into 2015, according to a new trailer for the title. When publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced the open-world action game earlier this year, the company said Arkham Knight would be available this fall on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. Today's announcement follows a recent spate of delays, with titles such as Tom Clancy's The Division, The Order: 1886 and Dying Light being pushed back into 2015. For more on Arkham Knight, check out our new preview, which includes details on the Batmobile's debut in the franchise.

This was the question faced by development team members as they sought a way to bring this series to the next generation of consoles. Their answer is bigger, better, more. A bigger Gotham City. Better mechanics and visuals. More gadgets and gameplay diversions. Central to this ethos is the Batmobile which, judging from the short pre-E3 demonstration I attended a few weeks ago, is going to be the centerpiece of Batman: Arkham Knight. Its function is threefold. First, it allows the player to zoom across a vastly larger playing area than we saw in 2011's Batman: Arkham City. Second, it expands Batman's bagful of tricks and gizmos, including the ability to control the car remotely, and have it scale the side of buildings. Finally, it becomes a weapon in its own right, opening up...
