If Bruce Wayne has his fast cars, his alter ego Batman has his gadgets. Now, new details have sprung up that hints at the possibility of some action in the air, or simply put airborne combat in Rocksteady's upcoming game, Batman Arkham Knight.
Though Batman has been doing airborne combat through dive bomb style attack, these are very limited. All this might change if we believe what Gaz Deaves, social marketing manager for Rocksteady Studios has been telling GamingBolt.
"So you can now use gadgets while you're airborne – for example, throwing batarangs into a group of thugs to thin them out before you engage on foot. Some gadgets have been upgraded in response to the bigger design decisions we made in the game. For example, the skyscrapers in Gotham city are extremely tall, so to make navigation feel more natural, we've added a new chain grapnel that allows you to quickly ascend them by grappling multiple times in quick succession," he said.
So there will be new mechanic in his ability to use gadgets when airborne. And the new addition to his gadgets, the 'chain grapple' will allow Batman to be much faster than his previous avatars.
Deaves' comments have indicated that the developer might "expand" the old gadgets that can be deployed in the battles. Players will see many of his gadgets upgraded to tackle a formidable enemy, Arkham Knight.
Batman: Arkham Knight will be released on 2 June, 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
