Arkham Knight Video Shows Batman v Superman Batmobile in Action
Last month, video game publisher Rocksteady announced that there will be a new DLC pack available in November for Batman: Arkham Knight, which will allow fans to play the Batmombile and Batsuit used in next year's highly-anticipated movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This DLC will be available next week, but the web series Arkham Insider has the first look at both the Batmobile and the costume as they will appear in the game. The gameplay footage reveals this Batmobile being tested out at a secret facility known as Proving Ground, which is where Bruce Wayne builds and tests his vehicles. Here's what Mark Kevern, a senior designer at Rocksteady, had to say about the Proving Ground.
"We were thinking about where Bruce Wayne would create these cars. He needs a secret base to build these, really, and it needs to be huge. We thought, where is somewhere where people wouldn't come? So we thought, what better place than a disused nuclear cooling tower? He's built the car here, just to put the car through its paces. He's got Lucius (Fox) monitoring every move he does. We've got a figure-eight track where you can really drift the car. He's got ramps and jumps so it's an adaptable space, where he can just go for it with all these new gadgets."
Both the Batmobile and the new Batman suit will be available to play in the regular game, once you reach a certain point in the story. Along with the Proving Ground track, the DLC, dubbed the "Wayne Tech Pack," also includes the Waynetech Loop. November will also see two Arkham Episodes arrive. The first is Catwoman's Revenge. It will include 1 new story mission and 2 AR challenge maps. The next episode is entitled A Flip of a Coin. It stars Robin and includes 1 story mission and 2 AR challenge maps. There will also be an Arkham Episodes AR Challenge Update that includes maps from GCPD Lockdown. Also coming this month are two Skin Packs. The first is Robin and Batmobile, which offers a Robin themed Batmobile skin and an Original Tim Drake Robin Skin. The second is a Riddler Themed Batmobile Skin. The Crime Fighter Challenge Pack #4 will be another offering in the month of November. It features 6 AR Challenges. They include Clockwork, Credit Crunch, High Flyers, Quarantine, Wild Cat and Divine Intervention. Free Updates this month include Character Selection in AR Invisible Predator Challenges.
Last month, the Batman Classic TV Series Batmobile Pack was released, which included two Batmobile tracks. The first is the iconic 1966 version of the Batcave, and the second is Penguin's Dockyard. Classic TV Series skins include Catwoman and Robin. A 1970s Batman themed Batmobile skin will also be available. The Crime Fighter Challenge Pack #3 comes with 6 AR Challenges, including Chemical Reaction, Stage Fright, Cauldron Speedway TT, Guardians, Precinct, and Vertigo. Free updates in October include Character Selection in AR Combat Challenges and Optional Hard difficulty in AR Combat and Batmobile Combat Challenges.
