The batsuit goes beyond a normal redesign in Batman: Arkham Knight

Batman Beyond

You ever been in a batsuit? I have. Much like a trip to Brakpan in the summer, it’s hot, sweaty and smells of rubber when you’re inside a full-body replica. But dammit, Batman will always have the coolest costumes, just another reason why I dig the character. As usual, there’ll be plenty of ostumes to choose from in Batman: Arkham Knight, provided that you pony up and pre-order the game or any of its special editions and forget about waiting a year for the GOTY edition. But only one costume will take Batman beyond…his usual threads.

Continuing the pimping out of the dark knight, Arkham Knight will see North American fans get a package of costumes that goes by the name of “Gotham’s Future”. The skin pack includes a Frank Miller-influenced Dark Knight Returns outfit and a more tech-heavy Batman Beyond costume. CHECK IT:

Batman Beyond

On second thoughts, that may not be a Dark Knight Returns skin. It may in fact be Batfleck from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Just Juiced. It’s not the first time that either costume has been in a Batman game. Batman: Arkham City featured both of them, with the Batman Beyond costume boasting a sleeker and more traditional look as part of the $5 DLC costume pack. We’ve yet to see a proper Batman Beyond costume that looks like it was ripped straight from the kickass cartoon, but I dig the techier side of this incarnation of the outfit. And yes, I’m probably going to drop some coin on it when its available later in the year as a separate DLC download, because I clearly have problems and intense fanboyism syndrome.

Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s been an entire day since I last sat down for a marathon viewing of Batman Beyond.

      Why is the arc reactor such a funny shape?

        I don’t think that’s the arc reactor, he moved it to keep his man bits warm….

          Clearly if he needs an iron suit then Batman lost his balls.

        He probably invented a new element within two days again, and now it’s a different shape again.

    I want a medievil knight version like in that episode of The brave and the Bold when Batman and Green Arrown go back in time with Merlin and things. That would be awesome!

      That suit just looks a bit more tactical than it does “futuristic”. The appeal on the beyond suit was always how sleek it was. At least to me. I’m not so fond of this version.

      Considering that a Vader costume is made up of leather, armour and an asthmatic breathing mask, I’m not surprised.

        Seeing how that thing severely limits your field of vision, I have huge amounts of respect for people actually going out in those things.

    That Beyond 0.5 suit looks pretty good, but not nearly as good as the Beyond 1.0 suit will look when they finish developing it.

    This new suit creates unrealistic expectations for what men should look like, I’m heavily offended by this as I cannot gain enough weight to look like the guy on the right, no matter how many doughnuts I have… this is ridiculous….

    I still think it’s a Mach I version.

    Also, it would have been nice if we got all these skins in the local LE and BE versions of the game like we did with the Arkham City CE, because no Gotham Knight blu-ray.
