Can you sense that? It's as if a million voices suddenly cried out in joy and are getting ready to make pre-orders. Something great has happened, and that something is a new Batman game by Rocksteady! Set to hit the Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC sometime this year, Rocksteady says it'll be the finale to their epic Arkham franchise. Titled Arkham Knight, the game will introduce the batmobile, feature an all-new villain, have a massive open world, mark the return of Kevin Conroy, and even make Harley Quinn playable in challenges. So yeah, there's a lot to get excited about, isn't there? However, we wanted to see what has you all the most thrilled about the announcement, and after two days of voting, the simple fact that it's a Rocksteady game absolutely dominated the poll.
It's easy to understand the love for Rocksteady. Arkham Asylum and Arkham City aren't just great comic book games -- which are far and few between -- they're also legitimately stellar video games and can hold their own against other popular franchises. They're regularly sporting an absorbing plot and, best of all, you feel like Batman. The sensation of a punch landing against a goon's jaw and running across a rooftop and then gliding over Gotham's crime-infested streets is pure bliss. Unlike other properties which feel like a simple update with a new game, Rocksteady proved they can make their next project feel like a whole new game when they went from Asylum to City. Based on the little we've seen so far, that definitely appears to be the case yet again and there's an understandable amount of hype and excitement behind this announcement. So, who else is now motivated to get an Xbox One, Playstation 4 or a good PC just for this game?
