Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment posted some new information for "Batman Arkham Knight" on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. According to a report from Segment Next on May 15, the publisher first revealed a new location in China Town, which is located on the north side of Gotham City. The publisher confirmed that the area is plagued with crime and corruption as many shady casinos and hotels are located in that district. Batman will end up there at some point in the story.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment also talked a little bit about the role of Riddler in "Batman Arkham Knight." The villain was previously confirmed to return and will be offering a new set of challenges for the superhero. In the sequel, the extra missions will be based on the new Batmobile element. You can find a screen showing one of the challenges from the official Facebook page of the series with the picture located to the top of this article.

Aside from participating in Riddler's missions, the Batmobile can be used while travel around Gotham City. Batman has the ability to summon the vehicle at any location in the metropolis, which is exponentially larger than Arkham City. The car also comes with some weapons that can disable vehicular enemies in addition to knocking out the human opposition. Due to its implementation, however, "Batman Arkham Knight" is not technically feasible on the PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360 platforms.

Fans will have to purchase the two next-generation consoles, or have a powerful PC, in order to play the final game of the series to be developed by Rocksteady Studios. The development team is expected to move on with another franchise, which is rumored to be a game from the "Superman" series. Although no official release date has been announced so far, "Batman Arkham Knight" has been listed with an Oct. 14 launch by multiple major retailers in North America.
