Batman Arkham Knight Dual Play System

Rocksteady confirms gamers can switch between controlling Batman & allies with dual play mode

When Batman: Arkham Asylum released the only help the caped crusader was able to get was from Oracle (Barbara Gordon). Trapped inside the infamous asylum there was no way Batman was going to be able to get help from his allies. In Rocksteady’s second outing, Batman: Arkham City, the camped crusader needed a helping hand. Enter former protege Nightwing and the older Robin to lend a helping hand. As fun as it was to have two members of the bat family make an appearance it wasn’t enough for fans.

What could be more fun than being able to truly take Nightwing and Robin out for a spin against a few baddies? Rocksteady agreed recently announcing that Nighwing, Robin, and Catwoman would all be playable characters; what more could fans ask for? Rocksteady however wasn’t satisfied with simply bringing a few of the Dark Knight’s closest into the game. In the Arkham Knight trailer “All Who Follow You” Rocksteady show off Batman, Robin, and Nightwing teaming up to perform tandem attacks.

Shortly after the scene senior animator Adam Vincent revealed Arkham Knight’s “Dual Play” system, saying those team ups are not exclusive to a co-op mode. Instead its a way for Batman to call on his allies when things get rough. Using the Dual Play system Batman can call for help when he is already in a fight or simply stalking his next villain. As soon as his allies arrive on the scene the Dual Play system allows players to swap between characters at will.

Being able to switch between characters with Dual Play will open up a brand new world of possibilites for players during fights. That will include splitting up so that one character can distract enemies long enough for their ally to perform a stealth attack. Rocksteady is also introducing brutal team combos to truly put thugs in their place. Series scriptwriter Martin Lancaster is even more excited about the power of Dual Play for Arkham Knight’s story, saying:

It’s fantastic because we’re able to build these relationships, not just through cinematic sequence, but right through the gameplay in every aspect of the game.

The system should definitely help gamers feel a greater connection to Batman and his allies as they use each character to progress through Arkham Knight. Rocksteady is showing a true investment in finishing the Arkham series as strongly as possible through its characters. Arkham Knight will feature a major cast of characters including Lucius Fox, Batman’s resident tech expert. The Riddler will also be making come back, this time with plans to overtake Gotham with an army of robots.

Then of course there is the mysterious Azrael with his holy mission to take over Batman’s place as the guardian of Gotham. This grand cast of characters and the Dual Play system are making Arkham Knight out to be the best title in the series.

There will be an update for Elden Ring next week that sounds pretty important. The patch will come out on June 20, right before Shadow of the Erdtree goes live on June 21. “New features” and “balance adjustments” are what FromSoftware says the update will have.

Luckily, the developer went on to give more information. We went ahead and put them all together in the patch notes below:

New parts of inventory:

  • Items that were just gained will have a “!” next to them
  • There is now a new tab called “Recent Items” that lets you look at items that you just got

What’s new in Summoning Pool?

  • Now, active summoning pools will follow you to NG+
  • The newly added Map Functions Menu now lets you turn on and off individual summoning pools
  • When you use the Small Golden Effigy, it will only choose active Summoning Pools

All new hairstyles:

  • The game now has five more hairstyles to choose from. You can choose them when you make your character, with the Clouded Mirror Stand, or with Rennala’s Rebirth feature.
    FromSoftware also says that the patch will have extra features that aren’t listed here. I hope they’re a pleasant surprise!

In a development that is likely to delight console manufacturer Sony, the Italian national team seems to be caught up in a scandal involving PlayStation. Manager Luciano Spalletti has previously expressed his concerns about his players staying up late playing video games on their PS5s. This led to speculation that he may have implemented a ban on the gaming system during his squad’s Euro 2024 camp. However, when speaking to the media before the team’s upcoming match against Albania on Saturday, he made it clear that he is fine with his players relaxing with video games, as long as they don’t stay up too late playing.

“I have no qualms about any genre of games – we’ve set up a gaming room with two PlayStations,” he stated. It seems to be quite popular, and I’ve even tried it out myself. However, they have the ability to do so at the appropriate time of day. It is quite concerning that they are awake until such late hours of the night. It is important to prioritize a healthy sleep schedule. We must emphasize the importance of adopting a proper lifestyle while playing games. I never claimed that we couldn’t play PlayStation, which is both unfair and untrue. I mentioned that staying up until 3AM or 4AM is not something we can do – it’s a distinct situation.

Goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, echoing his coach’s sentiments, revealed that the entire team finds pleasure in playing PS5, but only when it’s fitting. “After dinner, we spend time together in the games room, where we let loose and unwind. This has fostered a strong sense of camaraderie among us,” he observed. We share a few laughs and enjoy each other’s company for a couple of hours. There are absolutely no problems in that regard, the m

Italy’s disciplined gaming time seems to have paid off as they emerged victorious with a 2-1 win against Albania in their opener on Saturday. This impressive performance puts them joint-top of Group B after just one game. They will have to bring their A-game for their upcoming match, as they are set to take on Spain, their fierce rivals, in Gelsenkirchen on Thursday.

Metallica will be headlining the Battle Stage at the Fortnite Festival, and fans can look forward to an epic performance later today, on the 13th of June. The entire lineup of the legendary heavy metal band has been transformed into digital avatars for the ever-growing gaming platform. Fans can now enjoy their greatest hits and even engage in a thrilling musical player-versus-player game mode.

The collaboration between Metallica and Fortnite marks the start of Fortnite Festival Season 4, featuring an exciting lineup of six Metallica songs, such as “Enter Sandman,”  “Fuel,”  and “Ride the Lightning.”. Additional songs will be introduced as the season progresses. By choosing Epic’s premium Festival Pass, you’ll have the opportunity to unlock all four Metallica band members as playable skins. How about a showdown between Lars Ulrich and Goku?

The aspect that captures our attention is the 16-player musical battle royale. The Battle Stage offers a challenging experience that pushes players to their limits, requiring both physical stamina and a captivating stage presence. Players will find themselves immersed in the intense energy of the four tracks playing simultaneously. Perform with skill, and you can unleash powerful bursts of musical energy, causing less talented individuals to falter and be defeated, with the ultimate victor being crowned the Master of Puppets (most likely).

In addition to that, Metallica will be making an appearance at the Rocket Racing tent, complete with a specially designed track, car, and LEGO replicas of the band members. Is there anything more intense than that?

Do you enjoy Metallica’s music? Could anyone have predicted that the band would rise to prominence in a video game primarily aimed at a younger audience who may not be familiar with their music? And now, let’s turn our attention to the comments section below.
