E3 2014: Batman: Arkham Knight includes PlayStation-exclusive Content

At Sony's press conference, Rocksteady and Warner Bros revealed new gameplay footage of Batman: Arkham Knight and detailed the game's PlayStation-exclusive content.

The new Batman: Arkham Knight trailer from Sony's press conference began with The Bat making a steep vertical dive from the top of a tower, showcasing the impressive draw distance of the next-gen exclusive entry in the Arkham series. Gotham was rendered in great detail, and the space available to freely swoop through appeared far larger than previous games in the series.

After a stylish slam down to street level, Batman jumped into his Batmobile, which transformed into "battle mode" and engaged the unmanned tank forces of the antagonist, the Arkham Knight. In battle mode, the Batmobile could strafe sideways like a hovertank.

The gameplay ended with one of the series' infamous fake crashes, as the footage cut to a closeup of Scarecrow who waxed lyrical about his plans to destroy Gotham. Sony also announced that "Scarecrow nightmare missions" would be exclusive to PlayStation platforms, though no further details on what these missions entail were offered.

I'm glad Rockstar chose to make this a next gen game only so they don't have to compromise with the graphics and gameplay of the old consoles.  I hope they add physX and hi-res textures for the pc version.

Eventually, X1 will get it.  Not a big deal.


Hope we get a batcave in the game.  Batman will have a PS4 in the batcave for PS4 gamers and X1 for Xbox One gamers.

I'm getting this DAY 1 on PS4 but for the record:


this will be a TIMED-exclusive DLC. It will eventually come to X1 too.


The PS3 "exclusive" Joker DLC from Batman: Arkham Asylum came to 360. The PS3 "exclusive" Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport from Need For Speed: The Run came to 360. Darth Vader from Soul Calibur IV came to 360 & Yoda came to PS3.


Destiny's "exclusive" PS3/PS4 DLC will come to 360 & X1 eventually.


Just wait & see..... no such thing as exclusive DLC for 1 console brand except maybe Dead Space 1's Green Xbox skin suit & Blue PS3 skin suit.

@PSYCHOV3N0M I freaking hope so. I HATE platform exclusive content. I get that Sony and Microsft pay for it, but even as a PC gamer, there's already tons of DRM, DLC, Season passes, multiple editions, and now this s*** is becomign even more prelevant.


I want everyone to enjoy the content equaly.

@demonkingx5 Yeah, because that's more important than actual game content. These console peasants are missing out on so much, they have no idea whatsoever.
