Batman: Arkham City will be five times bigger than its predecessor

By on February 2, 2011

In a recent interview with GameSpot, Sefton Hill revealed that the sequel of one of the best games of 2009 will be “five times bigger” than its predecessor.

“The footprint of Arkham City is about five times bigger than Arkham Island, but our primary intention was never to create a bigger gameworld just for the sake of it,” he said.

“In Batman: Arkham Asylum, we really focused our effort on creating an intense, pressure-cooker atmosphere by locking Batman in the madhouse and allowing The Joker to turn up the heat. In Arkham City, we want to take that attitude to the next level, so we created an experience in which gamers will have a huge amount of navigational freedom, but they will also feel the extreme pressure of the challenges that they face.”

“Players will be able to go anywhere at any time, but will always have a clear idea of where they are needed most”

“Players will be able to go anywhere at any time, but we have made sure that players will always have a very clear idea of where they are needed most if they want to just stick to the core narrative path of the game. Explore the streets of Arkham City, and you will find many side missions, secrets, and street brawls, so players won’t find it difficult to get into some trouble if that’s what they are looking for.”

Sounds exciting to say the least. Batman: Arkham City is one of our most anticipated games of 2011 and will be released this fall for PS3, X360 and PC.
