Batman: Arkham VR No Longer PS4-Exclusive, New Trailer Released
I'm back, man!
Batman: Arkham VR, the first-person Dark Knight experience that was until now PSVR-exclusive, is coming to rival VR headsets Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. The new versions will launch on April 25, a little over six months after the game launched on PlayStation 4.
"Bringing Batman to VR was a very rewarding experience for us," said Sefton Hill, creative director at Rocksteady. "The Dark Knight has always been an incredible character to work with due to his psychological depth, so it’s really exciting to use this immersive medium to delve deeper into his psyche than ever before. We’re thrilled that PC players can finally wear the cowl for themselves and take on the role of the world’s greatest detective with the addition of the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift versions."
To celebrate the news, Rocksteady has released a new trailer. Take a look for yourself below.
Publisher Warner Bros. has confirmed that the new versions will be compatible with both Oculus Touch and the Vive controllers. The game will also support standard gamepads on PC, including the Steam controller, Dualshock 4, and Xbox One controller.
Batman: Arkham VR was one of the PlayStation Store's most-downloaded games of 2016, only beaten to the top of the VR chart by Job Simulator. We enjoyed the virtual reality experience here at GameSpot: critic Tamoor Hussain awarded it a 7/10. For more, check out our full Batman: Arkham VR review.
