We hope you managed to nab WipEout Omega Collection and Sniper Elite 4, because September's lineup of PlayStation Plus games is beginning to roll out now on PS4. The aforementioned games are being replaced by
It's a big month
Sony has announced September's PlayStation Plus games, and they're... Well, it's a pretty hefty month. September's two PlayStation 4 titles are Batman: Arkham Knight, and Darksiders III. Both games will be available to download from the 3rd September. We rather liked Arkham Knight when it launched all the way back in 2015, giving...
In a recent news thread on the WBGames forums, the publisher has announced the release date for some new Batman: Arkham Knight downloadable content called the 'Crime Fighter Challenge Pack #6', which was previously called the 'Community Challenge Pack'. The post states that the deploy date for the content on the PlayStation 4 is 26th...
It's an indication that 2015 has been an impressive year for games, when a Rocksteady Studios Batman: Arkham title doesn't break into the Game of the Year Top Five list, and settles for a respectable seventh place from Push Square instead. Even its E3 2015 trailer was overshadowed beneath the cowl of amazing announcements that preceded...
Bruce Wayne's no Peter Parker, but Batman: Arkham Knight's rain-slicked interpretation of Gotham City is just too darn pretty to ignore. As such, the latest PlayStation 4 patch for Rocksteady Studios' miserable superhero sequel will add an ever-popular Photo Mode to the mix, allowing you to commit the title's bleak urban streets to...
It's behind you
Spoiler alert: This article contains references to the conclusion of Batman: Arkham Knight. If you haven't finished the game yet, we'd recommend coming back to this article at a later date. The camera is arguably the most important mechanic in modern gaming – and yet it's also the most uninteresting. As gamers, we rarely give this...
RPGs are no joke
'The Matter of Family' is a slice of story-driven downloadable content for Batman: Arkham Knight, and in it, you play as Batgirl for the first time in Rocksteady's gloomy trilogy. Season pass owners can enjoy the add-on from the 14th July, while it'll be sold separately from the 21st July. In any case, if your interest has been...
For the first time ever, Batgirl is going to be playable in Warner Bros.' Batman: Arkham franchise. The latest and final instalment in the critically acclaimed Rocksteady trilogy, Batman: Arkham Knight, is getting a story add-on that puts you in the cape of the aforementioned heroine. Entitled 'Batgirl: A Matter of Family', the...
Quite the riddle
Batman: Arkham Knight runs well and looks great on the PlayStation 4 - it's also a pretty darn good game, to boot. But PC gamers haven't been so lucky, as the caped crusader's latest escapade has actually been removed from sale after it was deemed to be in an unacceptable state by publisher Warner Bros. Looking into what went so...
Return to the night
A few days ago, just after the launch of Batman: Arkham Knight, it was discovered that the game's leaderboards were busted. Fortunately, the team over at Rocksteady's been working on fixing the issue, and a new patch that's available to download right now does just that. There is some bad news, though: any statistics or high...
Finale to the Batman Arkham franchise.
Batman™: Arkham Knight brings the award-winning Arkham trilogy from Rocksteady Studios to its epic conclusion. Developed exclusively for New-Gen platforms, Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady's uniquely designed version of the Batmobile.
The highly anticipated addition of this legendary vehicle, combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Arkham series, offers gamers the ultimate and complete Batman experience as they tear through the streets and soar across the skyline of the entirety of Gotham City.
In this explosive finale, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city that he is sworn to protect, as Scarecrow returns to unite the super criminals of Gotham and destroy the Batman forever.
"Be The Batman" – Live the complete Batman experience as the Dark Knight enters the concluding chapter of Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy. Players will become The World's Greatest Detective like never before with the introduction of the Batmobile and enhancements to signature features such as FreeFlow Combat, stealth, forensics and navigation.
Introducing the Batmobile – The Batmobile is brought to life with a completely new and original design featuring a distinct visual appearance and a full range of on-board high-tech gadgetry. Designed to be fully drivable throughout the game world and capable of transformation from high speed pursuit mode to military grade battle mode, this legendary vehicle sits at the heart of the game's design and allows players to tear through the streets at incredible speeds in pursuit of Gotham City's most dangerous villains. This iconic vehicle also augments Batman's abilities in every respect, from navigation and forensics to combat and puzzle solving creating a genuine and seamless sense of the union of man and machine.
The Epic Conclusion to Rocksteady's Arkham Trilogy – Batman: Arkham Knight brings all-out war to Gotham City. The hit-and-run skirmishes of Batman: Arkham Asylum, which escalated into the devastating conspiracy against the inmates in Batman: Arkham City, culminates in the ultimate showdown for the future of Gotham. At the mercy of Scarecrow, the fate of the city hangs in the balance as he is joined by the Arkham Knight, a completely new and original character in the Batman universe, as well as a huge roster of other infamous villains including Harley Quinn, The Penguin, Two-Face and the Riddler.
Explore the entirety of Gotham City – For the first time, players have the opportunity to explore all of Gotham City in a completely open and free-roaming game world. More than five times that of Batman: Arkham City, Gotham City has been brought to life with the same level of intimate, hand-crafted attention to detail for which the Arkham games are known.
Most Wanted Side Missions – Players can fully immerse themselves in the chaos that is erupting in the streets of Gotham. Encounters with high-profile criminal masterminds are guaranteed while also offering gamers the opportunity to focus on and takedown individual villains or pursue the core narrative path.
New Combat and Gadget Features – Gamers have at their disposal more combat moves and high-tech gadgetry than ever before. The new 'gadgets while gliding' ability allows Batman to deploy gadgets such as batarangs, the grapnel gun or the line launcher mid-glide while Batman's utility belt is once again upgraded to include all new gadgets that expand his range of forensic investigation, stealth incursion and combat skills.
