On the 18th of October and the 21st of October. Batman Arkham City will be available to a variety of people throughout the world. Many people are asking themselves how it will end, but we here at Gamers Inquest have got that one covered.
The game ends when Batman goes into a room where Joker is holding Talia Al Gaul. Whilst Joker is talking Talia stabs Joker with a sword, whilst Batman and Talia are speaking Talia gets shot in the head. We then see the joker again, Joker then tells us that the Joker that Talia just killed way actually Clayface. You then have a 10-20 minute boss battle with Clayface before watching the final scene.
Batman has been holding something that Joker wants, something that he needs, The Cure. Batman then smashes the cure, Joker then sadly dies doing what he loves, Laughing. Batman picks up the body and walks him out of the City past Catwoman, Harley, Commissioner Gordan and places Joker’s body on a police car.
This is an incredibly sad ending which could outrage or annoy fans of this popular villian.
But what strikes me most is. Arkham 3 without the Joker?
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.
For a while we’ve heard that the sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum, Arkham City would come out some time in the Fall of 2011. We now know that the official release date in North America will be October 18, in Australia October 19 and in Europe and other global territories starting on October 21. The game will release for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on these dates.
Currently you can pre-order the game on Amazon.com and through GameStop. Whether there will be any pre-order bonuses is unknown at this point. It’s interesting they are only promoting a pre-sale through Amazon or GameStop on the official web site for the game.
