One of the major problems that players had with Batman Arkham Asylum was that it took place in a very linear and enclosed environment, well Rocksteady took this on board and made Arkham City into an open world game.
In a recent interview with News10.net Rocksteady’s Dax Ginn has revealed that not only will Batman Arkham City’s world be huge but also one of the most detailed ever.
“So the creative transition for us coming out of Arkham Asylum, taking
action on to the streets of Gotham Cit really meant that we were going
from a game world that was very atmospheric, very intenseintense and
veryfocuseddriven and it was really this cat and mouse kind of
competition between Batman and Joker. We have really ramped that up in
Arkham City, building out this amazing game world loaded with details
and put all of these new villains in to it. So we have this incredible
new creative and technical challenge for the entire to make sure that we
are not only making a big open world game, but the objective for us is
to make the most detailed open world game that players have ever seen.”
The real question is can they deliver?
