That's looking like Court of Owls. We are long overdue for another Arkham title. Hopefully they don't overdo the Batmobile again. I'm also hoping the boss battles are improved. This is by the same crew who did Origins (which was IMO the second best Arkham game). It had the second best story and the best boss fights in the series.

Here we go again... It's basically what that rumored Arkham Insurgency game was said to be, but I'll believe it when I see it in action.

And agree. Origins was criminally underrated.

Origins was OK but forgetful.....I wonder what Rocksteady is making then.....

BruceSkywalker

I didn't like Arkham Knight. The Batmobile stuff was horrible, and the story was worse. I'm kind of glad the series is in Origins teams' hands now, tbh.

The last picture that it morphs into it isn't, It's a Dragon's head.

What I liked about Arkham Origins was that it was the most comic-booky of the tetralogy. Hopefully if this ends up being an Arkham game, they keep it in the same line.

They hinted again today, and there's a Sony conference soon. Fingers crossed.

Well if Kevin Conroy says he's not voicing Batman in this game, it at least confirms the long rumored game's existence. In which case, I assume it'll be Roger Craig Smith who VA'd him in Origins, which for a younger Batman voice, I liked.

There are a lot of rumors this will be announced at TGA today.

Jason O'Mara is an okay Batman voice actor from the animated films.

This aged well, as expected.

There was that other Telltale Batman briefly shown though, but not an Arkham game.

More teasing. This game also has its own slot at DC FanDome, so we should get a trailer soon.

Ridley_Prime
That feel when looking forward to this more than the Suicide Squad/RockSteady game.

Arachnid1
At this point, I'm more excited for all the teasing and leaks around this game to end. We've known it was Court of Owls for years, and still Montreal has drawn out their teasing to the point were this website code bullchit is just a teaser for the teaser for the trailer we'll get at DC FanDome (all after the teaser we got a year ago on their twitter).

I'm so done with all this. At least Rocksteady released a picture and announced Suicide Squad right before the trailer at FanDome.

If Fandome doesn't end with at least a trailer, what interest I have left is going to be seriously hampered.

I'm excited for both! Both can be great games.

So this is supposed to be the new Arkham? Not what I expected, but still more interesting than the service-based Suicide Squad game. Honestly lukewarm on it though on first impression, tho can see myself maybe getting at some point, but would need to see more to know if it interests me enough.

It could be good. Long as the RPG elements aren't overbearing, it'll more or less be another Arkham, even if this is more co-op/multiplayer based than it is single player. IDK, but it feels more like a co-op oriented game to me.

But yeah, some are disappointed understandably that this isn't the next kind of Batman Arkham they were expecting (some even hating it already). Will need some time to know if it's worth getting for me, but will keep an eye on it... Oh, and showed the Court of Owls at the end of the trailer.

BruceSkywalker
game looks good

I like co-op.

I don't like shoehorned in RPG elements.

Also, I'll bet anything Bruce ain't dead, and instead was captured by the Owls.

As long as those damage numbers and RPG aspects don't impact stealth, I'm good. Stealth takedowns need to be one shot. None of this AC Odyssey "stealth takedowns only take a third of enemies health before you have to wack at a bullet sponge" nonsense. Otherwise, it looks great.

Also, this has nothing to do with Arkham apparently. It's its own thing.

Ah, I see.

Yeah, I guess now is actually a good a time as any to start moving on from the established Arkham universe, to allow more creative freedom for some DC/Batfamily games, which allowed one such as this to blossom.

Adam Grimes
Not interested.
