I have already reserved mine. Biggest news so far is the fact that it is next gen only, PS4 and XB1. Also Kevon Conroy is back as Batman. I will update as more info comes out.
IGN's article on the game(Louphin gets credit for the link)-
http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/03/...y-need-to-knowA year has passed since the events of Arkham City, and Gotham has begun to show signs of recovery. The death of the Joker ushered in a period of relative stability for Gotham – there were even signs of regeneration, perhaps redemption. In truth the villains haven't disappeared, but without the Joker's culture of chaos it's been more difficult for them to destroy the lives of Gotham's honest citizens.
This isn't the salvation Batman has been fighting towards, though. It's a moment of respite. The Joker's absence created a power vacuum in Gotham, and the Scarecrow – arguably Rocksteady's most original take on a Batman villain – has returned to seize control. He's threatening Gotham with a large-scale chemical attack, forcing the authorities to issue a city-wide evacuation. This is how Arkham Knight begins.

Another thing about this game is that it is next gen only. So 360, PS3 and WiiU owners are **** out of luck.
October 14th is the release date for anybody wondering.
I am seriously PUMPED for this game ... Rocksteady just gave me an excuse to get the next gen console. I already pre-ordered the game in FULL, and now I'm just saving up to get a XBox One.
Based on what I read about the game thus far, the plot, what it entails, and the scope of the world ... I can't wait to play this. Plus ... you get to drive the Batmobile ... THE BATMOBILE!!! Whats better than that? As a fan of the entire Arkham series, I am sooooooo looking forward to this. Welcome back Rocksteady!!!
about time I have a reason to turn on the ps4 and let the ps3 gather dust.
