Finally we get our first look at gameplay in the upcoming Batman: Arkham City. We have some looks at some of the new villians, Two-Face and Catwoman and the return of a few familiar faces. The trailer comes courtesy of IGN, and it really looks awesome.
In a related story found on G4TV, the games campaign mode will take you only 8hrs to complete. Rocksteady’s Dax Ginn says, “I can tell you that our QA guys, who are ninjas and obviously know everything in the game, can do just the core story missions, nothing else, in about eight hours, just straight-lining.” So really it’s the guys who designed the game and they aren’t doing any side missions or trying for other trophies in the game. I’m guessing we can at least double that time for the average player.
Rocksteady is saying there will be additional features that will make Arkham City replayable. “In terms of replayability or filling out a single-player story with additional features, there are more announcements that we’re going to make, which I think will solve that problem,” Dax Ginn told CVG.
My guess, is multiple endings or other choices that effect the outcome of the game. What do you think?
Batman Arkham City releases on October 18th on PlayStation 3, XBox 360 and PC.
