When a terrifying force of evil threatens the very existence of the city you love, you have no other option but to fight the darkness as the darkness by becoming the Batman. A single-player action-adventure video game for the PS4 console, Batman: Arkham Knight is set a year after the events that took place in Batman: Arkham City, the previous installment in the Batman game series. After the death of the Joker, Batman is overwhelmed by the loss of his nemesis and the deep bond that they shared. The citizens of Gotham, however, feel more secure than ever. Seeing this, the Scarecrow decides to make a return to Gotham with a crew of some of the most ruthless villains, i.e., Riddler, Two-Face, Penguin and Harley Quinn. Scarecrow threatens to unleash a whole new strain of a fear toxin. And, that’s not all. A new villain named the Arkham Knight makes an introduction in this game as well. It is now up to the Caped Crusader to save the innocent citizens of Gotham.
Having received a rating of 16 from PEGI, the gameplay sees the player controlling the Batman in a fashion that is similar to that of the previous installment. You can unleash a barrage of attacks with the use of weapons such as the grapnel gun, the line-launcher and batarangs. The countering system, which allows you to counter enemy attacks, and detective vision, which helps in assessing crime scenes in order to get a lead on the case, enhance your gameplay as well. Batarangs and the line-launcher can be used when you are gliding through the massive open world environment too. A new skill named “Fear Takedown” has been included in Arkham Knight which allows you to defeat up to three enemies simultaneously, however, you have to be undetected for this to work. Time is slowed down after subduing each respective enemy when executing this attack. Hazardous items in the environment, like power generators, can be used to your advantage as they can be made a part of your assault.
Another highlight of this game is that one can use the Batmobile - Batman’s futuristic car. This vehicle can be summoned whenever needed. One can get speed boosts, perform jumps, rotate on a certain spot, break through objects such as trees and barricades, or even fire missiles when using this advanced car. The Batmobile can be upgraded with new powers through the course of the game, just like Batman.
