Batman: Arkham Knight is the fourth and final installment in the Arkham video games series. It was developed by Rocksteady Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Comics in 2015.

Plot

Nine months after the events of Arkham City, the Scarecrow threatens to unleash a new, potent version of his fear toxin across all of Gotham City. After the majority of the city's population has been evacuated, Gotham is open territory for various gangs, and a militia equipped with military vehicles and weaponry, controlled by Scarecrow's mysterious ally, the self-dubbed "Arkham Knight".

Production

Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill and Tara Strong, reprise their roles from the Arkham Asylum franchise as Batman, the Joker, and Harley Quinn, respectively. The Scarecrow is voiced, for the first time, by veteran actor John Noble, who previously voiced Brainiac in the DC Universe original movie Superman Unbound. Several other DCAU actors also appear in supporting or cameo roles (see List of DCAU voice actors in DC Universe Video Games).

Other Batman rogues appearing include Poison Ivy, Riddler, and Penguin. Batman's allies include a reluctant Catwoman, Nightwing, Robin (Tim Drake), Oracle, Commissioner Gordon, Lucius Fox, and, as always, Alfred Pennyworth. Also making an appearance are Gotham reporters Jack Ryder and Vicki Vale.

Special DLC additions allow the player to play as Batgirl, in a story mission taking place before her crippling by the Joker, or as Catwoman, taking revenge against Riddler, for his kidnapping of her.

Another DLC addition shows extra villains such as, Killer Croc, Mr. Freeze, Mad Hatter and Ra's al Ghul.

Easter eggs and references to the DCAU

  • The games starts off in Pauli's Diner. This diner also had a blink-and-miss-it cameo in the cinematic opening of Batman: Arkham Asylum, and it's a clear reference to Paul Dini, producer and writer of the DCAU series and writer of the first to installments of the Arkham series.
  • The Gray Ghost is alluded through posters of a film titled The Ghost in Gray. Simon Trent appears on the poster as the Gray Ghost.
  • In Chinatown, across the street from the Bank of Gotham, there is an auto shop called "Earl Cooper Auto Repair". A clear reference to the eponymous character featured in the episode "The Mechanic".
  • There's a shop called "The Grinning Fishmonger" across the Bank of Gotham in Miagani Island that's lampooning "The Laughing Fish".
  • In Barbara Gordon/Oracle's study there's a poster for the film The Dark Interlude, a fictional movie mentioned in "Mudslide". The movie's tagline "She cured more than his body, she cured his heart" is a line from the movie and Matt Hagen and Stella Bates are credited as the film's main stars.
  • Also in Oracle's study there's a poster advertising Tanaga Dojo from "Curse of the Kobra". Kairi Tanaga is billed as the instructor.
  • There are posters of a film titled Dr. Dorian's Island of Mutants. These depict a silhouette of a feline looking creature atop of a mountain, much like the last shot of "Tyger, Tyger".
  • While free roaming in the city, after the Arkham Knight has been defeated, one of the the militia thugs will say "Yeah, I've got a job lined up after this, Kasnia [sic]. There's a king there we're gonna depose, or restore, or kill maybe? Look, I just shoot who they say, ok?".
  • A bonus "skin" also allows Batman to don a militarized version of the Batman Beyond-era Batsuit.
