See the Arkhamverse get animated in Batman: Assault on Arkham trailer

The Arkhamverse is expanding into animation. Batman: Assault on Arkham has Batman once again going against the Joker. However, for the first time in the Arkhamverse, he's facing off against the Suicide Squad, a team of villains who undertake black ops missions for the US government in exchange for shortened prison sentences. In the Arkhamverse, Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Killer Frost, Black Spider, King Shark, and Captain Boomerang are all members.

Batman: Arkham Origins 'Cold, Cold Heart' video shows new gameplay

Batman: Arkham Origins 'Cold, Cold Heart' video shows new gameplay

It's odd to think that Arkham Knight isn't the only Batman adventure coming this year. No, there's still the "Cold, Cold Heart" DLC for Batman: Arkham Origins.

Starring Mr. Freeze, the new adventure takes place after the events of the main campaign. Creative director Eric Holmes and game director Benoit Richer explain that WB Montreal wanted to include the villain in Origins, but couldn't figure out a way to make him fit the game's assassins narrative. Freeze isn't an assassin, it's against his character.

Gauntlet preview: dungeon party

Gauntlet preview: dungeon party

80s dungeon crawling classic Gauntlet is coming back this summer with a new game developed by Arrowhead, best known for their work on Magicka.

Like the original, the update features four characters: the Elf, the Valkyrie, the Wizard, and the Warrior. The group must set out to clear dungeons from evil monsters, from skeletons to fire-spitting demons to death itself. Along the way, they'll use their various weapons to solve puzzles and break open objects to collect loot, which they can use to resurrect themselves once their life has run out.

Report: Lego The Hobbit may add third film as DLC

Report: Lego The Hobbit may add third film as DLC

Lego The Hobbit launches next week, encapsulating the first two big-budget Hobbit film adaptations. But as many fans noticed when it was first announced, why not just hold off for a fall release and include the whole trilogy? The answer may be that the final film, There and Back Again, will be added as DLC.

How Rocksteady pushed for Arkham Knight to be series' final chapter

How Rocksteady pushed for Arkham Knight to be series' final chapter

Having played through both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, it became fairly clear that Rocksteady was building towards a climactic ending for its Bat-series. Even with critical praise and high sales, Rocksteady's vision hasn't changed, which is why the studio is ready to step away from the Bat for good with Batman: Arkham Knight.

How Batman: Arkham City teased Arkham Knight

How Batman: Arkham City teased Arkham Knight

Rocksteady famously hid a little Easter egg in Batman: Arkham Asylum, but did it so obscurely that the studio came out and explained how to find it themselves. It hinted at Arkham City, so obviously Bat-fans would be searching high and low in that game for any sign of Rocksteady's next project. Now that Arkham Knight has been announced, the studio has explained how it started to lay the groundwork in the last game.

Batman: Arkham Knight preview: a license to drive

Batman: Arkham Knight preview: a license to drive

What does a next-gen Batman: Arkham game look like? Sure, there's the promise of a larger city. You'll even be able to ride around Gotham using the Batmobile. But, more than anything, the most prominent feature enabled by next-gen tech are the visuals. Simply put, Arkham Knight is gorgeous.

Take a look at these screenshots. It really does look that good. And it's all the more impressive when you consider that the city is so much larger this time around. Seeing lights reflect off the Batmobile as it drives across wet pavement is a true feast for the eyes. This certainly doesn't look like a cross-gen game.

Lego The Hobbit trailer just needs one last big score

Lego The Hobbit trailer just needs one last big score

The Hobbit is a classic tale of 14 people getting together for the biggest score in Middle-Earth history. Peter Jackson's movies pay it all the reverence of the original Lord of the Rings saga, but Lego The Hobbit is unshackled from that legacy and can treat it like what it most obviously sounds like: a heist flick.

Batman: Arkham Knight is 'real next-gen,' map is five times the size of Arkham City

Batman: Arkham Knight is 'real next-gen,' map is five times the size of Arkham City

Unlikes its predecessor, Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham Knight is exclusive to the next-gen. It's one of the first games to ditch cross-gen, focusing exclusively on harnessing the power of the new consoles. "Obviously, you see a lot of games that are cross-gen, and they feel a bit reined in because of that," director Sefton Hill said. "Because we were able to make that decision quite early, we were able to be more ambitious with the design and make a real, genuine next-gen game."
