In this finale of Rocksteady's Arkham lineage the Scarecrow returns after Joker's death to unite all of Batman's enemies against him. Threatening the city with a plague of fears, Gotham's residents retreat while the Batman defends it with his new and improved suit and Batmobile.
Arkham Knight introduces new features to the series including:
The Batmobile will feature as a key component into travel and also combat. Batman will have the ability to call the car to his aid and immediately leap into the cockpit. The Batmobile is completely bulletproof making it the safest way to navigate the city. It is also fitted with a vehicle immobilizer which is a non-lethal missile used for stopping fleeing cars. This is the only drive-able vehicle in the game.
At the beginning of the game Batman is said to start out with his suit from Arkham City but will change into his new one early on in the story. Batman's cape along with other character's clothes have been designed to react realistically to wind and movement.
Other updates include a map 5 times larger than that of Arkham City located in one of the central areas of Gotham City. The map is divided into three islands.
