Batman Arkham VR allows you to be the Dark Knight

For years, players have been pretending to be Batman. But now they can actually dress like the Caped Crusader himself in a new game.
At Sony’s press briefing for the Electronic Entertainment Expo trade show this evening, developer Rocksteady Studios showed a short teaser for its new Batman game, Batman Arkham VR. The Joker, Batman’s lifelong nemesis, narrates the trailer (it sounds a lot like actor Mark Hamill, who voiced the Joker in past Batman games). The video ends with the Twitter hashtag #wearthecowl.
Sony’s push for VR is part of its effort to prepare an ecosystem for its PlayStation VR headset, which launches October 13. Market adviser Digi-Capital forecasts that VR and AR games will be a $10 billion segment by 2020.
It’ll be exclusive to PlayStation VR. You can see the announcement clip below.

Rocksteady has a lot of experience with making Batman adventures. It’s the creator of the so-called Arkham trilogy of action games — Batman: Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, and last summer’s Arkham Knight.
