Rocksteady has partnered with Warner Bros. and DC Comics in order to bring this VR game to life. Not much is known about the release at this point, other than it’s a PlayStationVR exclusive, but it does look like we’ll get the return of the Joker.
Based on what we’ve seen in previous Rocksteady Arkham games, we can certainly expect a dark and imposing tone, but the details of gameplay and setting are still a big mystery. Will the entire game be in first-person, or will it utilize third-person gameplay as well?
This exciting release will come a few months after Batman: Return to Arkham comes out for Xbox and PS4, as well as Batman: The Telltale Series for console and mobile devices. Looks like 2016 is going to be a great year for the Batman.
