The game allows its players to utilize the character’s iconic gadgets to unravel a plot that threatens the lives of his allies. Players are immersed into the Dark Knight’s universe and experience Gotham City through the eyes of Batman.

Sefton Hill, Rocksteady creative director, stated that “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,” IGN has reported.

It is the fifth installment in the game’s franchise developed by Rocksteady Studios and has been one of the most downloaded games from the PlayStation Store in 2016.
