Warner Bros. and game developer Rocksteady Studios just released a new trailer for “Batman: Arkham VR,” the first Batman game specifically made for the PlayStation VR.
“Batman: Arkham VR” was announced back in June during this year’s E3, and fans were able to experience it for themselves for the first time during San Diego Comic-Con this past July. The newly released trailer includes in-game footage as well as reactions from those who were able to try it out at Comic-Con.
The trailer does not show a lot, but it does give everyone a glimpse of what to expect when they pick up the game. Overall, the trailer shows that fans were impressed by the game claiming that it is the closest that they’ve ever been to actually becoming Batman. The trailer, titled “Wear the Cowl,” seems like a way to generate hype as the game is nearing its release date, as pointed out by ScreenRant.
For gamers who are interested in picking up “Batman: Arkham VR” when it comes out, they may be disappointed by the length of the actual game. Back in June, the game was described as a one-hour murder mystery that allows users to become the “world’s greatest detective,” according to Kotaku.
“Batman: Arkham VR” is not a full game, instead it’s really just Rocksteady’s attempt at penetrating the virtual reality market that is still in its infancy. Still, providing a Batman virtual reality experience is indeed appealing, and Rocksteady will most likely succeed in attaining its goal.
As for the game itself, very little is known about its plot besides the murder mystery aspect. However, the official synopsis for the game does say that gamers must be able to think like Batman and use his gadgets to uncover the said mystery.
“Batman: Arkham VR” is scheduled to be released this October and will exclusively be available for the PlayStation 4 with the PlayStation VR. The game will sell for $19.99, according to Collider. There’s no word yet on whether the game will be available on other virtual reality platforms.
