Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment today announced that Batman: Arkham VR is coming to HTC VIVE and Oculus Rift from the 25th of April.
Currently available for PlayStationVR, Rocksteady Studios’ Batman: Arkham VR is a top-selling, BAFTA nominated virtual reality experience that takes place in the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham canon and is based on DC’s core Batman license.
Think like Batman and utilise his legendary gadgets, unravelling a plot that threatens the lives of his closest allies while staring through his cowl at the sights of Gotham City or through the eyes of Bruce Wayne at Wayne Manor.
“Bringing Batman to VR was a very rewarding experience for us here at Rocksteady. The Dark Knight has always been an incredible character to work with due to his psychological depth, so it’s really exciting to use this immersive medium to delve deeper into his psyche than ever before” said Sefton Hill, Creative Director, Rocksteady Studios. “We’re thrilled that PC players can finally wear the cowl for themselves and take on the role of the World’s Greatest Detective with the addition of the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift versions.”
Batman: Arkham VR will support both the Oculus Touch and Vive Controllers, and also have full gamepad support on PC, including the PS4™ Dual Shock 4 Controller, Xbox One Controller and the Steam™ Controller.
