At its E3 briefing today, Sony has revealed that a new Batman title, named "Batman: Arkham VR" will be debuting exclusively on the PlayStation VR. Players will be able to don the mask of the Caped Crusader as they try to keep the streets of Gotham safe from criminals.
As can be seen, the reveal trailer doesn't give anything away in terms of gameplay, story or characters. David Haddad, President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, had the following to say:
Virtual reality is expanding the video game space and entertainment overall, so it is extremely exciting to have our incredible team at Rocksteady Studios dive into this new storytelling medium with the Batman Arkham franchise. Rocksteady is one of the best at creating story-driven content, and Batman: Arkham VR will deliver a more immersive experience than anyone could have imagined only a few years ago.
Sefton Hill, Game Director of Rocksteady Studios also expanded on some details, stating that players will be able to use gadgets in the game as well, to allow them to fully experience Batman as a character. He went on to say that:
Rocksteady is always looking for new ways to further engross players into the worlds we create and Batman: Arkham VR is an example of how we’re taking advantage of the latest technology to do that. The team is committed to delivering a Batman experience that stays true to the character and allows players to fully immerse themselves in the role of the World’s Greatest Detective.
Batman: Arkham VR will be making its way exclusively to the PlayStation VR, and is slated for an October 2016 release.
