And look, we take our Bat-News pretty seriously at this Bat-Gaming Channel.
Honestly though, we do.
Personally, as an expert in the Batman: Arkham
series of games (especially where combat is concerned), this is both welcome and yet trepidatious as far as rumours go.
That's largely because the suggested studio behind this -- WB Montreal
-- didn't quite hit the mark with Batman: Arkham Origins
. Combat wasn't as precise, AI was cheap and those boss battles were... well, a joke
; a design riddle
... a bane
Sorry (not sorry).
The rumours come by way of Twitter handle Sabi
who PC Gamer
notes has had a number of 'rumours' come true in the past. The reality is, some of these accounts are mildly managed by publishers as a way to feed rumours into the hype swell that needs to start somewhere
The rumour suggests the game will include playable sections throughout as all members of the "Bat-Family" which, while offering up a diversity idea where gameplay is concerned, sort of belies the solitary, staunch stature of Batman
on the whole. Especially where the Arkham series of games is concerned.
A lot of questions arise as well:
Would we be able to play as Batwoman given Remedy
already detailed The Killing Joke
maiming of her at the hands of Joker
? Would we play as Dick Grayson
? And then would we play as Jason Todd
before he's kidnapped and tortured by Joker? Or would it be as current Tim Drake
? Maybe as Damian
? And how would Bats fit into all of this?
Maybe I just Batman too much, but the mind is swirling with what could
be in this suggested scenario.
Lend us your thoughts...
