Play OverviewPlay Overview

Batman: Arkham Knight (2015) is the final installment of the Batman: Arkham series. Nine-months after the events of Batman: Arkham City, Gotham seems safer as crime drops significantly. All good things must come to an end, as it is Halloween night and the villain Scarecrow returns threatening to unleash a batch of toxin across Gotham.

As you play through Batman: Arkham Knight Scarecrow won't be the only villain that you need to deal with. You'll also encounter Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, The Riddler, and an all-new villain The Arkham Knight. The exciting conclusion to the Arkham series also includes many other notable characters and villains that can be challenged through a variety of side-quests.

Batman: Arkham Knight is an open-world fighting game that has you driving, gliding, and zip-lining around Gotham stopping thugs and saving the day vigilante style. You won't only be filling the boots of Batman but some other masked vigilantes in the Batman universe such as Batgirl, Robin, and Nightwing. The game also has DLC where you can play as Harley Quinn or Deathstroke.

Rated PEGI 18 for Violence. There are infrequent scenes of violence towards defenceless persons. In one, a man is tied up and beaten across the face by an armed thug. This will continue as long as the player takes to intervene. In another, the player is able to shoot a hostage. Batman also holds down and interrogates a man as he threatens to roll over the man's head with his Batmobile. The majority of the game features milder, though still mature, violence with Batman’s reasonably realistic takedowns of whole crowds of enemies with powerful hands-on combat. There are also some realistic shootings.

Rated for younger players in Australia. Rated Mature (M) for Violence, Mature Themes.
