With less than three months until the release of the final chapter in the Rocksteady run with Batman: Arkham Knight, we still had yet to hear about the game. Through the usual source, Amazon revealed the pre-order for the game set for release on June 2, 2015. We get to know the role of some key players like Harley Quinn and Scarecrow in the upcoming game.
With some of the outstanding artwork available, we find out the description of:
Harley Quinn – “For the first time in the Arkham series take on the role of Joker’s psychotic side-kick Harley Quinn and wreak havoc inside the Blüdhaven Police Department. With this exclusive Story Pack experience events in the lead-up to Arkham Knight as you infiltrate Blüdhaven to rescue your partner in crime: Poison Ivy. Delve deep into Harley’s demented nature and utilize her devastating baseball bat to smash, crash and bash your way to a friend very much in need.”
Scarecrow – “Batman: Arkham Knight brings all-out war to Gotham City. The hit-and-run skirmishes of Batman: Arkham Asylum, which escalated into the devastating conspiracy against the inmates in Batman: Arkham City, culminates in the ultimate showdown for the future of Gotham. At the mercy of Scarecrow, the fate of the city hangs in the balance as he is joined by a huge roster of other infamous villains.”
As we saw from the trailer for the game, Scarecrow unites Batman’s Rogues Gallery, which includes Two-Face, The Penguin, the Riddler, the Arkham Knight, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy to take down Batman and claim Gotham City as their own. I imagine just how this will turn out.
