Batman: Arkham Knight Insider Video Features Predator Gameplay
Watch the Dark Knight thwart a bank robbery and apprehend Firefly in this impressive Batman: Arkham Knight Insider video.
The sixth episode of Arkham Insider features Social Marketing Manager Gaz Deaves interviewing members of Rocksteady Studios to learn about the gameplay features of Batman: Arkham Knight before the game's big launch next week. Gaz interviews Bill Green, who designed Two Face's bank robbery stages throughout the game. In the midst of all the chaos being caused by the rest of the Rogues Gallery, Two Faces' men are robbing Gotham's banks. Due to the loud alarms going off, Batman is able to steathily enter these buildings and begin some Predator gameplay sequences where you've got to takedown gun-toting baddies without being caught.
During this sequence, we see some of some of Batman's new, stealth-based skills. Just as Batman enters the bank, a garbage truck slams through its entrance, which will be used as a getaway car no one would ever suspect of smelling fishy (you know what we mean). The cover noise of the alarms means your attacks can be loud without alerting enemies to your presence. Batman showcases the new Remote Hacking Device, which allows him to override the bank's security features. Batman can be seen using the device to trigger the bank's anti-theft countermeasures, including electrified floor panels and exploding dye packs for a smokey cover.
Another gameplay sequence shows Batman stopping an inferno at one of Gotham's firehouses. The Batmobile is used to jump-start the building's fire suppression systems. After stopping the blaze, Firefly emerges and flies away via jet pack. You've got to chase him in the Batmobile through the streets of Gotham and avoid the napalm and fires he leaves in his path in order to get close enough and take him down.
Batman: Arkham Knight will launch for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Please note that the Batmobile Collector's Edition of the game has been cancelled.
