“Just when we thought we were done with Arkham, virtual reality pulled us back in. It was a game changer for the team because we could put the player inside this universe for the first time and let them become The Batman,” said Sefton Hill, Creative Director, Rocksteady Studios. “It’s been amazing to see the reactions of players as they descend into the Batcave, don the cowl and delve into an emotional mystery. Batman: Arkham VR really is an experience like no other.”
