Warner Bros and DC Entertainment today announced that Batman: Arkham VR is coming to HTC VIVE and Oculus Rift beginning on the 25th of April. In order to celebrate this announcement, Warner Bros released a new PC trailer that can be viewed below.
Batman: Arkham VR is described as the first virtual reality experience to immerse players into the Dark Knight’s universe, putting them inside the Batman’s cowl like never before. PC players with HTC Vive and Oculus Rift hardware will now have the opportunity to experience Gotham City through the eyes of the World’s Greatest Detective, and delve deep into a tense Batman: Arkham mystery.
As the press release reads, players will enter a virtual reality world where they must think like Batman and utilize his legendary gadgets, unravelling a plot that threatens the lives of his closest allies.
Sefton Hill, Creative Director, Rocksteady Studios, said:
“Bringing Batman to VR was a very rewarding experience for us here at Rocksteady. 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. We’re thrilled that PC players can finally wear the cowl for themselves and take on the role of the World’s Greatest Detective with the addition of the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift versions.”
