So Batman isn't the 'Arkham Knight' after all

Rocksteady creates new canonical character

When Rocksteady revealed their next-gen Batman sequel, many of us assumed that "Arkham Knight" referred to the Caped Crusader himself. Right?.

Well, wrong, actually. Rocksteady are introducing a brand new character -- The Arkham Knight -- who'll antagonise Batman and become part of the wider continuity after the credits roll.

Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham Knight revealed for PC, PS4 & Xbox One [UPDATE]

Yes, we can finally drive the Batmobile!

WB Games Montreal did a reasonable if underwhelming job with Batman: Arkham Origins, but we all knew that original masterminds Rocksteady Studios had to be working on a tasty new project for next-gen systems.

An exciting prospect... which has been blown wide open thanks to an indiscreet product listing from GAME, followed by a Game Informer cover story. Batman: Arkham Knight is set to release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One later this year, providing the "explosive finale" to the Arkham series alongside the opportunity to finally get behind the wheel of the Batmobile.

UPDATE: Enjoy the announcement trailer!

Batman: Arkham City GOTY Edition | £12.18 | Amazon | 360

We're a bit on the fence about the next Batman game thanks to the dodgy title and Rocksteady's departure, but that shouldn't deter you from playing the this one if you're yet to pick it up (what have you been doing?). There's a more open world to discover since Arkham Asylum and it's packed with classic villains, collectibles and groups of goons to smash up with some of the most empowering melee combat we've ever seen. As this is the GOTY edition you'll also get the epilogue DLC, Harley's Revenge.

Batman: Arkham City GOTY Edition | £6.78 | Gamersgate | PC

Admittedly, we have highlighted better deals for this one thanks to those handy voucher codes, but as it currently stands Gamersgate have the best offer by a rather large margin. Their daily deal ends up being just over a £10 better than the next best offer elsewhere.

Containing all of the extra DLC that has emerged so far, including all of the character packs, maps, and the Harley Quinn’s Revenge expansion, it makes Rocksteady’s sequel an even bigger experience than it already is. A worthy successor to Arkham Asylum, this GOTY Edition is worth every penny.

Most of us are beginning to get a bit antsy about the lack of news for Rocksteady's next Batman game, which at this rate we'll not see until next-gen. We envy anyone who hasn't yet sampled the latest game though and at a fiver we think you've waited long enough. This walled-off section of Gotham City is run by the inmates of Arkham giving us a best-of selection of villains to take on. Bats is still rocking the best melee combos on the market too, throw in some awesome gadgets and you're in comic-book heaven.

Batman: Arkham City GOTY Edition | £9.98 | Gamersgate | PC

Gamersgate are running a Batman-themed weekend sale with numerous titles on offer, but we feel this is the highlight of the bunch. Admittedly, this isn’t the lowest we’ve seen the GOTY Edition fall to, but as it stands it is the best deal out there by a fiver.

Isn't it about time Rocksteady announced the new Batman game already? Until then though we'll just have to replay the excellent first two games. This edition is packing all of the DLC released for the game, the most important of which is the Harley Quinn's Revenge epilogue chapter. Batman has a huge environment to explore this time with improved gliding and grappling skills making swooping around excellent fun. The combat's the star though as you take on large groups of enemies and systematically dismantle them in a way no other game can compete with.

Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition | £18.99 | Base | Wii U

Wii U owners can now experience the Dark Knight’s latest escapade for under £20 thanks to Base’s current offer. It beats the next best deal from Amazon by just under £2, although please note that the dispatch time is currently at 2-3 days.

It’s a worthwhile purchase if you have yet to experience Arkham City on another platform, as the Armored Edition includes all of the DLC that has been released, including Harley Quinn’s Revenge, and the Wii U gamepad functionality is well implemented. Thanks to andywedge @ HUKD!
