Batman: Arkham Knight Map Will Be '5 Times Larger' than Arkham City

Developer Rocksteady sat down with Game Informer and shared numerous details on their upcoming and last entry in the Arkham series, Batman: Arkham Knight. They particularly emphasized the addition of the Batmobile and the far larger game map. In fact, the Gotham map will be "5 times larger" than the map for Arkham City.

"The Arkham games have always been about providing that power fantasy, about being and feeling like Batman. We're going to take it further with the addition of the Batmobile and the bigger city," Sefton Hill told Game Informer. "We've known it's what people want. When you're Batman you do think Batmobile, It's the one key thing we felt we really always wanted to do. And also that refreshes the whole experience, which I really think it does. What we're always trying to do is [make] every game feel like a new game rather than another episode of the last one."

And how will Batman's last romp in the Arkham franchise end? With a bang, of course.

"We kind of feel this is the natural end to the story," Hill said. "We really want to go out in style."

Batman: Arkham Knight is scheduled to release later in 2014 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Bullshit.

Why bullshit?

A larger city is not exactly the right thing missing from the Batman Arkham series.

And releasing it in 2014 just shows that they are gonna throw a lot of pointless "grind" to fill up the large but empty place.

Oh, I do hope Batman's still a badass in this one. Perhaps 5 times more badass. Like the map size.

If we know that the map of Arkham Knight is 5 times bigger than in Arkham City and the map of Witcher 3 is 30 times that of Witcher 2, we can calculate that Vader will be 6 times more disappointed in the next Witcher compared to the next Batman game.

I hate to agree with Stardust but 5x more map will probably just equal 5x more bullshit side quests. I thought Arkham City was pretty huge and I didn't complete all the side junk.

The ”I hate to agree with Stardust” thing is getting really old, you know.
  Reikhardt: I hate to agree with.... Damn.
RenegadeCZ: I love to agree with stardust. We're like brothers.

5x bigger than Arkham City? Sheesh, we don't need THAT much room to drive the Batmobile :)
