Taking a Leap into VR: Batman: Arkham Shadow Announced

Watch on YouTube

The Batman: Arkham franchise takes a daring leap into the world of virtual reality with the announcement of Batman: Arkham Shadow. Following the critically-acclaimed Batman: Arkham Knight in 2015, this new experience is being developed by Camouflaj and Oculus Studios specifically for the Meta Quest 3 headset.

A Return to the Arkhamverse

While details remain shrouded in secrecy, Batman: Arkham Shadow is confirmed to be set within the established Arkhamverse, allowing players to revisit the iconic Gotham City.

Facing a Familiar Foe?

A brief teaser trailer offered a glimpse of the game's villain, showcasing Batman confronting a swarm of rats. This, along with key art featuring prominent rats and a possible glimpse of Ratcatcher's mask, suggests the villain might be the notorious rodent-controlling antagonist.

A Continued Legacy for the Arkhamverse

The placement of Batman: Arkham Shadow within the Arkham timeline is also intriguing. This year's Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League also belonged to the Arkham universe, though its story received mixed reactions from fans. Regardless, both titles demonstrate WB Games' continued commitment to the beloved franchise.
