'Batman: Arkham Knight': Gotham going to 'the next level' with Xbox One and PS4

It was only a few weeks ago that Batman: Arkham Knight was announced by Warner Bros. and there's is no doubt that with the game only coming to the Xbox One, PS4 and PC, consumers are in for one of the biggest and best looking iterations yet.

Dax Ginn, who is a producer at Rocksteady, talked about some of the scale and length the PS4 and Xbox One are able to provide Batman: Arkham Knight developers, as well as their ultimate vision for Gotham City.

"Next-gen for us has really opened up the opportunity to deliver, not just the detail that we've always been committed to in our previous games, but to [now] do that on an epic scale. Scale and detail, it's usually one or the other, but with next-gen you can really do both.

"Arkham Asylum and Arkham City were both highly detailed game worlds. We really wanted to take that to the next level in Batman: Arkham Knight. To do it on [this] scale, we're building out the entirety of Gotham City at that kind of level.

"It's a huge creative and technical challenge, but that was something we were really passionate about doing," Ginn said.

While last year did see some impressive Xbox One and PS4 only titles, 2014 should be the year we really start to see staggering advances in what a game can do and look like.

With more developers and publishers investing highly into the PS4 and Xbox One, we'll start to see more truly next-generation experiences like we expect to see from Batman: Arkham Knight.

We do not have a release date for Arkham Knight quite yet, but we do expect the game to launch sometime in October of this year. That's traditionally been the release month for the game. Batman: Arkham Knight will only be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
