Bane Revealed as Next Villain in Arkham Asylum

Posted by Luke Brown On April - 15 - 2009


The latest inmate in Arkham Asylum has been revealed. Bane may be the man who broke the Bat’s back, but he’s apparently seen better days based on the footage of this teaser. That is, until the Joker gets a hold of him.

Yeah, after seeing this and playing a little bit of the game on the PS3 demo station at my local Gamestop (those bastards), I’m really looking forward to this game. I was sort of on the fence about how it could turn out, but the footage seems to indicate a lot of care went into making this gameplay experience incredibly enjoyable. In the brief bit of time I spent playing the game, combat felt very much like Assassin’s Creed. Combos were simple, animations were very smooth, and the counter system provided a very Batman-like experience. By that I mean Rocksteady did good work replicating how talented Bruce is whether fighting one guy or a dozen.

While there’s not a terrible amount of gameplay in this trailer, you do get a glimpse of how twisted the developer’s vision for Arkham Asylum is. I still want to see a bit more of the actual gameplay, but for now, this game is cemented in my “must buys” for the summer.
