Batman Arkham Knight Will Have Interesting Character Switch Mechanic
New details have emerged about how players will play through Batman Arkham Knight. This time round, players will have access to different playable characters, and they will be able to swap between the different characters in a similar fashion to Grand Theft Auto V.
Unlike Grand Theft Auto 5, the different playable characters in Batman Arkham Knight will not be going about their own business in the world. Instead, you can switch out to any superheroes accompanying Batman at the time at the tap of a button.
This new information was revealed in a brand new trailer for Batman Arkham Knight. In the trailer, Cat woman, Robin and Night Wing are seen as characters that players can switch out to at any time. Whilst we aren't sure whether this will be the full lineup of characters, this trio of superheroes is going to be more than capable of making Batman's day just a little bit easier.
When switching to a new character in the midst of a fight, you will sometimes be able to chain together some pretty spectacular dual play combo attacks. We've seen something like this in fighting games before but this is the first time it works so flawlessly in an action game like Batman Arkham Knight.
The trailer ends with a small glimpse of Harley Quinn - if you pre-order Batman Arkham Knight before the game is released you will be able to play as her in the challenge maps.
