Developed by the development team behind the original trilogy Rocksteady Studios, Batman Arkham VR is a new story of the Arkham series.
“Batman: Arkham VR is an intense murder mystery in the style of the classic Batman comic books, but with a strong dose of the dark psychology that the Arkham games are well known for”, a spokesperson for Rocksteady Studios said in a recent PlayStation blog post. “This time around we’re telling a highly focused, very personal story entirely in first-person”.
The game launches alongside PlayStation virtual reality system on October the 13th. A price for the game was not disclosed however the PSVR will be sold at launch for $399 USD. A bunch of other games were announced for the machine, including an X-Wing fighter, Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Missions, and a VR game based on Final Fantasy XV’s Prompto.
More on Batman Arkham VR and PlayStation’s own virtual reality hardware will no doubt be shared later this week.
