Video: Arkham Knight: Building the Ultimate Batmobile on PS4

3w ago - Rocksteady Studios Game Director Sefton Hill posted up a video today showcasing Arkham Knight on building the ultimate Batmobile for PS4.

To quote: I've always said that working on a Batman game is a huge privilege for us. Even though we have been working on Batman for over seven years, we've never lost sight of the fact that we are the current custodians of a very special universe.

So it was with great excitement, and not a small amount of trepidation, that we decided to add the fully playable Batmobile into the Arkhamverse, knowing that it would disrupt all of our existing systems and bring with it a huge amount of pressure to deliver on expectations.

To quote: Alone, unprepared, and unarmed, Amanda Ripley is forced to match wits with death itself in Alien: Isolation.

To better understand the "lo-fi sci-fi" origin of Alien: Isolation on PS3 and PS4, we asked Creative Lead Alistair Hope for insight into the team's development process. From design philosophies to the technical possibilities of PS4, Hope reveals a host of insights on the development of Alien: Isolation.

Watch our new video interview, read our Q&A with Alistair, and leave your questions in the comments!

PlayStation.Blog: So far, Isolation's concept seems to be an intimate one, with Amanda Ripley squaring off against a single Alien. What gave you the inspiration to take the "back to basics" approach?
