Batman: Arkham Knight Editorials
Superhero games are a peculiar lot. Some of them seem to prove the point that franchises belonging to one medium are happiest within it, and converting books to movies and movies to games is a rather futile endeavor. And then come titles like the Arkham series, or the recent Marvel's Spider-Man, and we go racking our brains, trying to come up with a reason why all these games aren't that good. One way or another, there's sure plenty of publishers, who'd love to capitalize on the popular superheroes in the coming months, and in this article, we look at the most interesting upcoming games based on superhero franchises.
The gaming community loves to complain that video games nowadays are too short or at least much shorter than in good old times. But the thing is that no matter if it’s an FPS that lasts for a single evening or a sandbox that wants you to give up on your daily job, not many players actually finish the games they buy. The data on achievements collected by Steam and PSN says it all. Still, since it’s not the length that’s the real issue, then what is?
In 2015 gamers will get their hands on, what seems to be, the final chapter in the Rocksteady’s Arkham series. In Batman: Arkham Knight, the Caped Crusader will once again face the scumbags of Gotham, as well as his inner demons.
While the Arkham games got the rightful attention and praise for superb story-telling, unique combat and engaging exploration, most of the fans seem to be attracted by Batman’s charismatic rogues gallery.
Some of the series’ veterans are confirmed to appear, alongside new characters like the titular Knight of Arkham. However, a great part of the villain roster is still shrouded in mystery.
