The inner workings of the previous model of the Batmobile

Additional Information.
A key part of the Dark Knight's collection of high tech gadgets, The Batmobile doubles as both a stylish means of transport and a crucial weapon for crimefighting. Equiped with the likes of rocket launchers, grappling hooks and with a top speed of 330mph, the Batmobile is designed to intimidate. With its coal black exterior blending into the shadows, and protected with the finest ceramic fractal armour, this vehicle is a perfect match for use by the brooding Caped Crusader.

Possible Role in A3:
You need to complete a mission objective; and fast. What better way to travel across Gotham than the Dark Knight's very own Batmobile? You must learn the skills to drive the car, before later using them to complete quicktime events within side missions. Challenge maps could also focus solely on driving the Batmobile.

Notable Appearances:
Detective Comics #27, Batman #5, The Dark Knight Returns, Teen Titans Vol 3: Issue 9

I wouldn't if we just got to see it not play it , cause if we do drive it I can already see people complaining about it , the arkham games aren't driving games by any stretch of the imagination , I doubt rocksteady(or whatever studios developing) would waste so much effort on a short mission....

....On the other hand though if pulled off correctly it could be quite glorious to drive...but I'd expect a flyable batwing to be a more realistic option.

Great idea to expand on the database R_R! You're kicking all kinds of ass! :adam:

I'd love to see the batmobile in some gameplay capacity, even if it is only for calling in supplies Just Cause 2 style. In terms of look I'd like to see it go for the look of TNBA, as it's probably my favourite design.

OR why not go for the windscreen from Batman Reborn? That's one of my favourite batmobiles too!

I still think they should include a Batmobile level in A3. Even if it was just a challenge map, I think it would be a lot of fun, whilst also expanding gameplay style.

for the tech and vehicles topic, i would suggest adding :Batcomputer, Batwing, Batboat, Wayne Tech, and the Cryptographic Sequencer. :batman:

As much as I would like to see the Batmobile in Arkham 3, it would verge too closely to Grand Theft Auto territory. Still, a Challenge map involving a mission to chase down thugs in getaway cars would be amazing.

Volume 1; it's the issue in which the Batmobile didn't have an ordinary 'car' design anymore...

I wouldn't mind driving around Gotham, parking my car in a Batman-made safe spot or cloaking it in armor to protect while you're out on a missiion. It would kind of be like GTA, but with better controls I'd hope. Its addition would make for a good change of pace in the game's series, and car chases would be awesome!! :batman2:
