A Look at the New Batman Game. This is a game review, not an in-depth analysis of a story or a character. So, let’s get that out of the way. Batman: Arkham VR is not a complex game. Sure, there are underlying themes and many mysteries to be unraveled. Still, all in all, it’s just another superhero simulator with some high production values. The new Batman game from Rocksteady Studios is more than that – even if it feels like nothing more than an expanded version of Injustice 2.
As you may know, the game’s main premise revolves around Scarecrow capturing various superheroes for his twisted experiments. Batman has been one of those prisoners – and he’s about to pay the price for the crimes he committed against Gotham City when you meet him during one of his morning routines. To make things more interesting, two other characters will join you at some point: Oracle and Nightwing. And for those who prefer reading over watching, we’ve got plenty of details to share about this new Bats adventure, so keep reading!

Are You Ready for a VR Batman Game?
This is the part where you might think we had some doubts about VR games ourselves. After all, we’ve been saying for years that VR is the best way to experience video games. Still, the Batman VR experience feels very different from the rest of the pack. Is it worth the hype? That’s something we’ll find out in this review. Batman: Arkham VR was developed by Rock Steady Studios and published by Warner Bros.
Interactive Entertainment. It’s available on PC exclusively for the Oculus Rift headset. We have yet to determine the exact release date, but we expect it to come out in the first half of 2018. The game’s premise is simple – like the Arkham games but in VR. You’ll play Batman as you investigate various crimes and fight various villains in a series of Batman-themed levels. One of these levels is the famous Arkham Asylum, where most of the game occurs.
What We Know about Batman: Arkham VR
We already saw the first gameplay footage of Batman: Arkham VR back at E3 2017. We also saw a short gameplay trailer during Paris Games Week this year. Here’s what we know if you want to learn more about the game. Oculus Rift is the headset you’ll need to play the game. There are no plans to release the game for other headsets. Batman: Arkham VR is a first-person game, and you’ll play Batman as he investigates crimes and battles various villains.
The game’s levels are inspired by the famous Batman comics and animated series, with many nods to Batman: The Animated Series. We have yet to learn much about the story, but we can tell you that it takes place in Gotham City, years after Batman’s return to the city. It follows the plot of the popular Batman: Arkham series – but with some twists. The game stars three characters from the Bat family: Batman, Harley Quinn, and Nightwing.
We also know that Oracle will appear somewhere in the game. The Arkham games inspire the boss fights in the game, and you’ll fight villains such as Two-Face, Scarecrow, and Penguin. We don’t know the exact difficulty of the game yet, but Batfleck himself, aka Christian Bale, said it’s more difficult than the last game. We don’t know much about the story yet, but we can tell you that it takes place in Gotham City, years after Batman’s return to the city. It follows the plot of the popular Batman: Arkham series but with some twists.
Is Batman: Arkham VR Worth Playing?
Batman: Arkham VR is a fun game, but it will not revolutionize the gaming industry. It’s similar to the Injustice 2 experience in that you’re just playing a superhero game. This is not the game for you if you’re looking for something new and innovative. But suppose you’re looking for a cool virtual reality experience with gameplay that’s inspired by the Batman universe. In that case, this game is a must for you.
The VR mechanic is interesting and easy to get used to. You’ll be able to look around freely and get a great feeling of being in the scene. Make sure you have a powerful computer because the game will be demanding. And if you’re not a fan of the Batman lore, this game might not be for you either – it’s all about the Dark Knight!
The Story of Batman: Arkham VR
If you want to know more about the story of Batman: Arkham VR, we’ve got you covered. We don’t know the exact plot yet, but we were told it’s inspired by the events from the popular Batman: Arkham video game. Batman found himself in Arkham when he was investigating the murder of a Gotham City police officer. It turned out that the culprit was a mysterious villain known only as the Joker.
The villain had threatened the officer and forced him to detonate a bomb at the city’s police station. The Joker was a dangerous foe, and the Dark Knight needed to track him down. Arkham VR will let you play Batman as he investigates crimes, tracks down the Joker, and takes on various villains from Rocksteady’s Arkham series. The story of Batman: Arkham VR will take place inside the famous Arkham Asylum and other locations from the Batman universe.
The Characters in Batman: Arkham VR
You’ll play two characters in Batman: Arkham VR – Batman and Harley Quinn. The character of Harley Quinn is the one who you’ll play in the game. The other is Batman – but we don’t know much about him yet. Batman is an experienced crime fighter who was once on the road to redemption.
He’s a billionaire who uses wealth and technology to fight crime in Gotham City. In the comics and other media, he’s a very serious and stoic man. But in VR, you’ll be able to play as him as he’s relaxed and smiling – just like the Batman we know and love. Harley Quinn is a psychiatrist who’s crazy about Batman. She’s in love with him and willing to do anything to make him happy. As you can guess, she’s also crazy in love with the Joker.
Boss Fights in Batman: Arkham VR
The final boss fight in Batman: Arkham VR is based on a story from the Arkham games, and it’s called The Penguin. That’s interesting because Penguin was one of the main antagonists in the first Batman story, way back in 1939. The fight itself is easy, and it’s based on the Batman: Arkham VR gameplay footage where you need to swing around and fight various henchmen until you face off against The Penguin.
The final boss fight in Batman: Arkham VR is called The Penguin, and it’s a tough fight, but it’s nothing compared to what the developers have in store for us in the next game. We can’t wait to see what the developers have planned for us next, and we’re sure that it will be something special.
Batman: Arkham VR is a fun-to-play game worth checking out if you’re a fan of the Arkham games. Sure, it’s not revolutionary, but it’s an immersive experience that’s fun to play with friends. And hey, if you get someone to play with while exploring the virtual world of Batman, that’s even better!
