Hopefully the Arkham VR PC version fares better than Arkham Knight.
Arkham VR – developed by Rocksteady and published by Warner Bros. gaming arm – was one of the launch games for Sony’s PlayStation VR, and it’s a good one. There are few rubbery-chested (but thankfully, nipple-free) superhero suits that people would rather step into than that of the Dark Knight.
Everything from chatting with Alfred in the plush surrounds of Wayne Manor, to donning the aforementioned rubber suit, cape and cowl, to throwing batarangs at the bad guys – who are we kidding? We all threw batarangs at everyone, didn’t we? – all takes place in wonderfully-realised, first-person virtual reality.
And now the Arkham VR PC version allows you to put that meaty gaming PC and ludicrously expensive virtual reality headset to use, enjoying the experience in higher resolutions and at (hopefully) amazing frame rates.
The Arkham VR PC version will release on April 25, 2017, and will be available for both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive with full support for either gamepads (in Xbox One, DualShock 4 or Steam controller varieties) or those waggly VR wand peripherals.
There’s no word on the system requirements yet, but you can assume that the general VR minimums will be a good guide.
