Questions for Rocksteady Studios

Postby Red_Robin » Sep 12th, 2014, 8:11 am

I will be speaking to representatives from Rocksteady Studios about Arkham Knight in the coming months.

Whilst I already have bank of questions set aside, I thought it would only be fair to let our forum members suggest some questions as well.

I can't guarantee that all questions will recieve an answer, but I shall try to ask as many as possible. :alfred:

So what would you like to know?

Whilst I don't think that there is much of an answer to this question, I'd still very much like to hear what they say or if they have no idea what to say at all.

"It has been said that the name of the game, Arkham Knight, was chosen before the Rocksteady created character received the name Arkham Knight. What was the original reasoning behind calling the game Arkham Knight?"

I'm pretty boring when it comes to thinking of questions, so these are the only other questions I can think of. :P

-"Other than fear takedowns, what's new in the Predator gameplay?"
-"Are we getting all of Gotham in Arkham Knight including previous game locations e.g. Arkham City? Or are we getting the remainder of Gotham that hasn't been explorable/present in previous games?"
-"Will the Batmobile be getting its own challenge mode?"

Woohoo! I think I'm going to ask a Red Hood question.

"Regarding Red Hood's lethality in the challenge rooms - as developers and massive fans of the bat-mythos, did you find it essential to retain this element of the character in his Arkhamverse interpretation? What separates Red Hood's gameplay from that of Batman and Robin's?"

Ok, I guess I could come up with some questions:
- Does the inclusion of Arkham Origins (and to an extension, Arkham Origins Blackgate) in the series affect Arkham Knight in any way? Story-wise, could there be a possible reference to the events in it?
- Who is voicing Scarecrow in the game?
- Will Harley Quinn have a story mission like Red Hood, or is she limited to challenge mode only? And vice versa, is Red Hood playable in challenge rooms, or just one story mission?
- Regarding Red Hood's story mission, will it be played separately, or will it be intertwined with the main story, like Catwoman in Arkham City?

Ooooo awesome! I'll have to rack my brain for questions that they can give a proper answer to -

Arkham Knight is set in an open world Gotham for the first time. What does this expansive sandbox environment offer the player that's new to to the series?

Will Bruce's relationships with the Batfamily (Oracle, Robin, Red Hood etc) play a key component within the story?

How often will we be expected to use the Batmobile within the game?

Harley Quinn and Red Hood have been revealed as playable characters for the game. What challenges did you face in designing the two and how does their gameplay reflect the characters' comic origins?

Can we expect to see a fair amount of Batmans rogue gallery that have yet to appear in the Arlhamverse?

Why was the game delayed nearly a year?
How much is the batmobile incorporated into the game? Is it a main feature, or is it only used in a few missions?

A lot of Arkham City was revealed prior to the game's release, are you guys gonna be a little more tight lipped this time 'round to ensure more surprises?

- Will Catwoman be in this game? And if so, will she be playable once again?

- Is there going to be any non-Batman villain making an appearance in this game?

- Will all characters feature only brand new skins? Or can we expect to see a return of the skins from the previous games too?

- Will we be able to access the Wayne Manor/Batcave at some point in the game?

All I'd like to know if we will finish Poison Ivy's story (Only to bring Catwoman back)

And will we see them doing more Superhero video games after they are finished with Arkham Knight.

My questions:

-Does Gotham City have modern looking skyscrapers because in E3 demo we can see only 3 or them?
-Can we use Bat-Scanner whenever we want to or when game demands it?
-Will game have some Crime Scene side missions?
-What new predator takedowns Batman has in this game?
-What changes you made to Detective Mode?

What changes have been made to detective vision?
Have you changed up the crime scenes at all, made them more elaborate?
How has predator been changed besides the Fear Takedowns?
Are Red Hood and Harley quinn available in their own stories within the campaign or only in the challenge maps?
