Since the video of a Harry Potter universe based RPG leaked I think most of us have already hoped that Rocksteady will be the team behind it however another rumour has surfaced. Resetera and various subreddits have hinted that the Potter RPG will be developed by Avalanche Software which just so happens to be a Warner Bros studio.
The apparent next title from Rocksteady will supposedly be a new addition to the Arkham series, called Batman: Arkham Universe and will supposedly be announced at X018.
Anyone hoping for a Justice League or Superman title, you’ll have to sit tight, the man in black is leading the way this time.
Whoever exactly was responsible for this information has also left us with some supposed details for Batman: Arkham Universe:
Release Date: Fall 2019
Current Gen: XB1/1X/PS4/PS4Pro/PC
Single player/Co-op/Multiplayer(specific modes)
Characters include the entire Batfamily: Batman, Robin(Tim), Nightwing, Batgirl, Batwoman, Catwoman, Red Hood
Gotham is about 1.5x the size of AK. Districts and neighborhoods have gone through complete overhaul.
Gotham is now a “living, breathing city”
Set Time of Day/Weather(Rain,Overcast,Snow)
There are random crimes such as car chases, bank robberies, muggings, and so forth.
Main Villain: Court of Owls
Story takes inspiration from the different Court of Owls storylines.
Every character is available in free roam.
Batman has a redesigned Batmobile(transport only) and the other characters have their cycles
Batcave serves as main hub for upgrades, character swaps, new missions, game modes
Game plays similar to past Arkham games, but there are new options for co-op: Dual takedowns in combat/stealth.
Stealth segments make you work together
Parkour has been expanded. Characters move a lot quicker and more fluid.
Main gadgets are the same except for a couple new additions.
New enemy types include Talons and Pilots(enemies that hover the battlefield, you have to either use a gadget or dual
takedown to get them down)
Talons are the same as the ninja types from Arkham Knight. They can counter your counters and also have their own gadgets(knife, throwing knife)
Game takes place in the Arkhamverse, obviously
This is supposed to be Rocksteady’s true “last hoorah” of Batman games.
If we can hope for anything, it’s the multiplayer inclusion. It’s been dreamt of by fans for years and would certainly be a huge selling point of the title.
