Batman: Arkham Knight Sidequest Predictions

It's a good thing Arkham Knight's gonna be the last game. I don't
wanna know how much dirtier Riddler could get.
So, as we all know, Batman: Arkham Knight was officially announced earlier this month. We had known from interviews that Rocksteady had been preparing this game as WB Montreal was focusing on Arkham Origins, so we know it's going to be absolutely bombastic. Now, while many people have been speculating who the major, plot-important villains are (other than who has been revealed), I've found myself wondering what kinds of sidequests we can expect to see in the game. So I've decided to make a small list of possibilities for what we'll be seeing as side quests. Here we go!

"An epic quest to become... cool."

Batman: Arkham Knight Revealed!

So, you know how, while Batman: Arkham Origins was in development, Kevin Conroy and Rocksteady both mentioned the development of a fourth Arkham game for next-gen consoles? Well, it was revealed today, as Batman: Arkham Knight.


Even though I know this can't be what the in-game engine makes the graphics look like, this is looking to be the most graphically-advanced Arkham game yet, and I have to say, Batman has never looked better in a game before. The game seems to be pitting the criminals against both the cops and Batman in an all-out war, and it looks amazing. From the trailer, we can't see anyone new, though we do get glimpses of Harley Quinn in yet another sexy outfit, Two-Face looking a little more messed up than Arkham City, Penguin looking a bit older, and a voice that I'm fairly sure belongs to Scarecrow. It's being advertised as a finale to the Arkham series, and looks the part. Obviously, this is going to be one of the biggest games of the year.

Arkham Knight is going to be available for PS4, XBox One, and PC later this year (Gamestop's listing the date as October 14th), and if you pre-order, you get Harley Quinn and four exclusive challenge maps. You know I'm preordering ASAP. Obviously, I'll put up a review shortly after the game comes out.

HBM, signing out.
