Batman: Arkham Knight DLC to include a Red Hood story mission (update)

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.

Voice of Batman says Batman: Arkham Knight hits January

Recently delayed game Batman: Arkham Knight is coming out this January, according to Kevin Conroy, the voice of Batman in the game.

Batman: Arkham Knight delayed to 2015

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.

Batman: Arkham Knight brings an agile Batmobile to the mix

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.
