More details have been revealed in regards to the Batmobile and soundtrack of the upcoming multiplatform next-generation game, “Batman Arkham Knight.” According to a report from Joystiq on April 11, David Buckley has been brought in to help compose some original tracks for the open-world action-adventure video game. He will be joining Nick Arundel, the composer of “Batman Arkham Asylum” and “Batman Arkham City.”
David Buckley previously worked on “Call of Duty: Ghosts,” “Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots” and “Shrek Forever After.” So “Batman Arkham Knight” won’t be his first attempt in the video game space. He also provided some tracks for “The Good Wife” television show along with the “Prince of Persia” and “The Town” films.
Along with the new soundtrack details, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment also talked a little bit about one of the functionalities of the Batmobile. The publisher revealed that the eject feature of the car will give Batman a higher launch trajectory when flying around Gotham City. The new location is easily the biggest setting in the series as it is going to end up at approximately five times the size of Arkham City. You can find an image showcasing the eject move from the official “Batman Arkham” Facebook page with the photo located to the top of the article.
The Batmobile is perhaps the biggest new feature in “Batman Arkham Knight.” In addition to providing a faster transportation method, the car also includes enemy-repelling features. However, its inclusion proved to be too much for the PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360 to handle as the Batmobile takes up a majority of the system RAM. As a result, it will only be released for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One gaming platforms.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced a fall release date window for “Batman Arkham Knight.” The upcoming title is the third and final game in the series from Rocksteady Studios. However, the “Batman Arkham” series could still go on even without the original creators.
