Deathstroke. Sold.

To be honest, I think these guys will make a good game as they've acknowledged the fact the previous two Batman games could not be faulted, so I'm sure they'll do errything to keep that standard up.

Ugh, I hope there is a DLC were you can play as him, like when you could play as the Joker on Ps3.

This. I would love the hell out of this.

Just because Rocksteady isn't involved it doesn't mean that game will be bad and I won't complain if I'm fighting as batman against 8 deadliest assassins which also includes the Deathstroke. Btw Deathstroke will be a good choice for the next Batman movie.

Nobody was expecting a prequel. Everyone was expecting Batman Arkham World. Still interested, especially the part about being in Gotham City for once. Unlike Arkham City, which was a secluded part of Gotham City

Pleaaaaaaaaase let Deathstroke be a playable characters. He is so badass. Hope he has the same fast moves he has in Arrow.

Cant wait! I loved the first 2. I hope the PSVita one is like the console one unlike Lego Batman 2. Or if it was like the Uncharted and Assassins Creed 3 portable versions where it wasn't even the same game. I also hope that there will be more Nightwing or at least free roaming with him. Maybe Jason as Robin? Possibly Batgirl. The big thing is I hope that you can go to Wayne Manor and the Batcave when ever you want.

Is it just me or are there not enough well-known/Batman DC assassins to make up the group of eight in this game. List 'em (they need to be Batman Suited Villains, so not Lobo)

  • Deathstroke
  • Cheshire
  • Lady Vic
  • David Cain
  • Shiva

Those are the only ones I could think of. Help please

#61 Posted by Ares94 (41 posts) - - Show Bio

@russia599

- Deadshot

- Katana's husband

- you could maybe count Ra's or Talia Al Ghul

- Even Bane, why not.

Can't wait!! I'm really looking forward to this game. Even though Rocksteady isn't involved I think WB Montreal should handle things nicely.

#64 Edited by tjs4759 (42 posts) - - Show Bio

@br_havoc: I agree, I was really looking forward to a direct sequel to Arkham City focused around Azrael's prophecy. Also adding in Red Hood and I thought having the Black Skull being a key villain would have been awesome.

Oh well, DeathStroke does look really badass but Rocksteady not being involved makes me extremely nervous. They did Fantastic job with Arkham City, it ended up being one of my favorite games of all time. I hope WB Montreal can live up to that, but chances are they'll probably drop the ball.

I really hope this comes for PS4

#66 Posted by The Average Bear (2069 posts) - - Show Bio

My moneys on Shiva, Deadshot, David Cain, maybe Merlyn? So many possibilities. DC could always revamp a random into a cool character. Hopefully this means they'll give us at last 8 cool boss fights. Deathstroke earns the biggest fanboy squeal of all, though.

Exactly I think it will be like Halo 4. Everyone was jumpy about Bungie leaving but it still turned out great.

I'm sold. Deathstroke looks awesome. I'm worried about the fact RS isn't making the game but I'm going to put my trust in the new company. Can't wait.

#69 Edited by cmaprice (809 posts) - - Show Bio

This game could very well be awesome, but the lack of Paul Dini and Rocksteady games, its early release, and the fact that the changes seem to be softballed to us instead of proudly announced like there's a bold new direction seem to serve as red flags.

With the plot being focused on boss battle type structure, I'd imagine this is a game more about combat than stealth and strategy.

I was really hoping to see a sequel by Dini and Rocksteady that dealt with the fallout regarding Joker, Scarecrow's return, Azrael's prophecy, Hush, and perhaps the Red Hood. Seeing as the Joker referenced having killed Jason during Robin's DLC map and the Red Hood's persona being part of Joker's backstory and Jason's return, I could see it being used very poetically.

8 assassins, Slade is one, I wonder who the other 7 are (i'm betting 1 will be Talia or someone to do with the League of Assasins)

You wouldn't happen to be familiar with Lady Shiva? David Cain?

Perhaps even their daughter might make an appearance.

anyone else think batman's costume is improved? i never liked the AA or AC ones. It came across as a half ass comicbook movie hybrid. This one already looks cooler.

#72 Posted by Batnandez (511 posts) - - Show Bio

@ultrastarkiller: batman would beat deathstroke, it's silly that they've written stroke as some badass, batman has handled way tougher opponents

#73 Posted by Black_Claw (2886 posts) - - Show Bio

Best of wishes to the new development team, since the Asylum/City teams have already set the bar ridiculously high. But I'm sure they can pull it off.

Also I have my fingers crossed for Ron Pearlman as Deathstroke!

@sandman_: Maybe if all of us on here go see the Man of Steel and make it a big money maker for WB and DC Comics then people will see that Superman can be just as legit as Batman for a franchise so they will.

Deathstroke; Ally to Green Arrow in TV, but enemy to Batman in Video Games.

"We have eight of the best assassin's in the world who've come together to Gotham City for one night.. to kill the bat."

I am getting this! A combination of Batman, assassin's, and snow what more could I possibly want? Eight assassin's. We all know that 1 out 8 assassin's is Deathstroke.

Who are the other 7?

Maybe Hush, Ra's al Ghul, Deathshot might return. I would want to see Jason Todd.

#78 Posted by SmashBrawler (5493 posts) - - Show Bio

Without Rocksteady I'm not really excited. I guess it could be good, maybe even the best Batman game yet but... yeah. Plus, I don't like the fact all the stuff with Scarecrow, Hush and Azrael was suddenly abandoned. I really hope Rocksteady are developing their own Arkham game separate from this one.

Without Rocksteady, I'll have to save by box of tissues and lubricants until the game is released....

I miss his old costume. New one's not too bad, though. I mostly just miss the mask and the fold-over boots.

I f'n hated those lol. Badass tactical juggernaut who consistently takes on an entire team and he looked like a damn pirate, and not one of the sexy ones. One of my biggest costume pet peeves ever.

Blasphemy. LOL

I'm not making the same mistake as I did with ARKHAM CITY. I'm going to wait for the Game of the Year edition for this that has all the DLC on it. There's also the issue of no Rocksteady involvement.

#90 Posted by Fetts (4406 posts) - - Show Bio

Looking interesting! I'm loving Deathstroke's look. But I'm also a little skeptical, with Rocksteady Studios not involved and all. Even the plot has me a little concerned. I mean... 8 of the world's best assassins? It sounds intriguing but I already see a couple of problems. I mean, Deathstroke alone is easily enough to take care of Batman. But adding an extra 7? Why? That strikes me as a little... unnecessary. And furthermore this is just Batman in his earlier years. And somehow he's a big enough threat to send a team of the best of the best? Also, I was personally looking forward to something like Batman: Gotham City. I mean we were left with a couple of cliffhangers kinda. Like how (*SPOILERS) Batman was going to deal with Hush "tomorrow". And how Ra's al Ghul is still alive.

But that said, I suppose it's a little early to start making judgements. Hope Warners Bros. doesn't screw it up though.

Deathstroke is cool but come on! He cannot beat Batman; he can barely handle Grayson. Stupid one eyed pirate.

#94 Posted by lilben42 (2498 posts) - - Show Bio

@portlandsbatman: I personally think they didn't want to do a prequel but WB did so they didn't want to be involved in this game but will come back in the other.

@paperdemon: I think the WB team will look at the other two games and learn from there. I doubt WB would risk bombing anymore.

@fetts: The screenshots show black mask, and penguin in it too. I also think the plot might not be as good as the other ones but still good but too soon to tell. I like a prequel it makes me anticipate the next one more.

I think the padding on batman's arms and thighs look a bit wierd. Has batman ever had that before?
