Comic Vine Question of the Week: Batman Arkham Knight: What Excites You The Most?

The new Batman game has been revealed and we want to know why YOU'RE excited about it! Come cast your vote and speak your mind!

Oh yes, Rocksteady is back! It's official: the very awesome studio is giving us its third Batman game. Not only will this be their grand finale for the Dark Knight, but it's also introducing a huge gameplay element: the Batmobile. As if gliding and leaping across the rooftops of Gotham City wasn't fun enough, you'll now be able to speed through its streets. Apparently Harley Quinn will be playable in challenges and we'll see the return of quite a few villains (e.g. Scarecrow, Two-Face, Penguin). Also, Kevin Conroy previously stated he was working on a Batman game, so it's safe to assume he'll reprise his role as the Caped Crusader in this one. (Watch the trailer HERE if you haven't already watched a dozen times)

Needless to say, it's a thrilling reveal, but we want to know what has you the most excited. So, please click the link below and cast your vote!

CLICK HERE TO VOTE!!!

The poll will stay open until Thursday morning (ET). After casting your vote, dive into the comments section and speak your mind. Make an awesome enough post and we just may highlight it in the results article. That updated article will hit the homepage on Thursday, so be sure to check back then to see the results and whether your post was selected. See you then, Viners. In the meantime, enjoy freaking out over the news and feast your eyes on a better look at Bruce's new armor.

The new armor is awesome, I just felt that his head felt strange in the beginning of the trailer. Overall, it looks like it's going to be better than City (becoming the greatest superhero game, man, rocksteady always wins), also hope we have a bigger game, like more hours to play the story of the game and finally explore the relationships of Batman (catwoman, robin and nightwing).

The new look is friking awesome a great combination between bulky armor and very light armor.

BATMOBile is awesome and It is going to be good to use it

Toughest call ever.

The fact that Rocksteady is back at the helm as Developers makes me even more excited. Origions was good but left me out in the cold (pun intended). Rocksteady knows how to respect this franchise and license this is how i like to wake up in the morning. Pay Day = Pre-Order

Coolest Thing I EVER SAW. I'm just a little sad that I have to buy a PS4

Looking forward to see Nightwing, Robin and Catwoman hopefully make a return to at least the challenge maps. Also, getting to view the glorious character trophies with glorious next-gen graphics!

Well I know it doesn't have any Multiplayer and I dont think it has Co-op either they said they want to bring the best single player experience so I doubt it

I am excited for The Scarecrow's return.

He was the best part about Asylum IMO.

a Batman game that doesn't revolve around the joker... he's not like centre point of the batman universe.

Scarecrows return is a good idea, his sections where best bits of the original Arkham Asylum. Although I suspect he won't actually be the main villain.

Playable Harley (confirmed via game site)

I honestly don't get the weird fan obsession with her in the games... I assume its based on the some Clown /Nurse Fetish

  • Open world Gotham
  • Guess who's back, back again, Scarecrow's back.
  • Playable Harley and her costume isn't as objectifying as it used to be
  • Batmobile
  • Rocksteady developing
  • pretty much everything

So...no Wii U version?

Posted by Avenging-X-Bolt

@novemberx2: I suppose for some it's that, for me it has more to do with the fact that she's never been playable outside of fighting games and lego batman. Not really sure there's much of a fan obsession though.

@flameboy298: it's probably has to do with the fact that she's a fan favorite who's been steadily rising in the past few years. I'm not saying Red Hood shouldn't be playable though.

So much win, I can't pick just one!

" "Arkham Knight" is apparently the name of a new archrival in the game. It's an entirely new character being created from scratch by DC's Geoff Johns. Interesting. "

This is Rocksteady's third game. They weren't behind Arkham Origins.

Free roam Gotham City that's five times the size of Arkham City all in next gen graphics that I can explore in the goddamn Batmobile.
