Is Batman Arkham Insurgency the new Batman game?
Now, before you get too excited, remember: just because a bloke down the pub tells you something it’s not necessarily true. Bear that in mind when we tell you that the next Batman game from Warner Bros is due to be announced on March 8 and it’s called: Batman Arkham: Insurgency.
The leak comes from a Reddit post from a guy who claims he is a WB Montreal employee who is planning on leaving. So, he just thought he leak a ton of stuff about the new Batman game before he does.
He reveals the following unverified information about Batman Arkham: Insurgency:
1. It’s been in development since 2014 and takes place three years after events in Batman Arkham Origins.
2. Playable characters will include Batman and Robin, with Dick Grayson once again playing the part of Robin.
3. It will introduce a new location in Gotham, a coastal area that he claims will be “the same size as the three islands from Arkham Knight.”
4. Players can fast travel to the Batcave and Wayne Manor.
5. The Batmobile mechanics have been tweaked and controls have been modified. Battle mode has been ditched, and they’ll be a larger focus on chase sequences and the weaponry of the Batmobile.
6. Combat has been improved, and made more in-depth. “It's still rhythm based where you have to time all the correct button presses exactly, but it's more complicated than the attack/counter basis of the previous games.” They’ll also be boss battles!
7. Villains will include: Maxie Zeus, Dollmaker, Killer Moth, Anarky, Two-Face, Blockbuster, Ventriloquist, Cornelius Stirk, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, Dusan al Ghul, Mad Monk, Dala, Riddler and Joker.
8. Owlman is the main villain in the game, alongside the Court of Owls, and Talons will be elite enemies.
Batman Arkham Insurgency is rumored to release in November 2017, though the alleged employee states that it could be pushed back.
