Batman VR Title Announced for PSVR

Runtime: 1:24    Author: Playstation    Category: Trailers

We thought they were done with the franchise, but Rocksteady Studios have gone back to Gotham with Batman: Arkham VR, a Playstation VR exclusive releasing in October this year.

Giving gamers a chance to step into the cowl itself, and explore some of the franchises most iconic locations, Batman: Arkham VR is a brand new Batman story set in the Arham universe. Principal Designer at Rocksteady Studios, Bill Green, had this to say regarding the new experience:

The switch from screens to headsets was a fascinating creative and technical challenge for us, as it has inspired us to really focus on Batman’s detective skills and find new ways to use them. We all feel that we’ve ended up creating an amazing new Batman experience that is both complementary and a counterpoint to the epic grandeur of Batman: Arkham Knight. This time around we’re telling a highly focused, very personal story entirely in first-person. Batman: Arkham VR is an intense murder mystery in the style of the classic Batman comic books, but with a strong dose of the dark psychology that the Arkham games are well known for.

No specific date has been announced, but Batman: Arkham VR is set to release in October, 2016 exclusively on Playstation VR.

Made by Rocksteady! This will probably be amazing... just wondering how long it will be. Certainly will be one of the best VR experiences out there I think, certainly an awesome potential anyway.

If I'm to be honest, I hadn't even been thinking of, or looking at the VR... but there is something about this title that just 'works'..
