Game of the Year #7 - Batman: Arkham Knight (PS4)
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...
News Batman: Arkham Knight PS4 Patch 1.05 Adds Photo Mode

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.

News For Months, It Was 'Impossible' To Get Batman: Arkham Knight to Run on PS4
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.

Gotham's not-so greatest
Batman: Arkham Knight's probably not the first game that you'd think of when it comes to well integrated leaderboards, but we're actually quite fond of the way in which the title keeps track of both your progress through the campaign and your performance in AR Missions. At least we were, until they went offline. Like many,...

Slick in silver
Some of the official custom PlayStation 4 consoles have been pretty bad if you ask this author, but the Batman: Arkham Knight one bucks that trend.

News It's Two for the Price of One in Batman: Arkham Knight PS4
More fun with friends
Rocksteady Studios made an almost perfect Batman game on its first attempt, so it must have been tough for the British developer to try and improve on that in subsequent sequels.

Rumour Batman: Arkham Knight Is Stepping Out Of The Shadows In February 2015
According to Microsoft, anyway
The delay of Batman: Arkham Knight was a real disappointment — we hoped to be busting criminals as titular Dark Knight in 2014, rather than 2015.
