WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES BATMAN™: ARKHAM VR FOR HTC VIVE AND OCULUS RIFT

Dark Knight Virtual Reality

Rocksteady Studios’ Dark Knight Virtual Reality Experience Comes to PC Gaming Platforms 25th of April 

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment today announced that Batman™: Arkham VR is coming to HTC VIVE™ and Oculus Rift beginning on the 25th of April. Currently available for PlayStation®VR, Rocksteady Studios’ Batman: Arkham VR is a top-selling, BAFTA nominated virtual reality experience that takes place in the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham canon and is based on DC’s core Batman license.



Batman: Arkham VR is the first virtual reality experience to immerse players into the Dark Knight’s universe, putting them inside the Batman’s™ cowl like never before. PC players with HTC Vive and Oculus Rift hardware will now have the opportunity to experience Gotham City through the eyes of the World’s Greatest Detective, and delve deep into a tense Batman™: Arkham mystery. Players will enter a virtual reality world where they must think like Batman™ and utilize his legendary gadgets, unravelling a plot that threatens the lives of his closest allies. 

“Bringing Batman™ to VR was a very rewarding experience for us here at Rocksteady. The Dark Knight has always been an incredible character to work with due to his psychological depth, so it’s really exciting to use this immersive medium to delve deeper into his psyche than ever before” said Sefton Hill, Creative Director, Rocksteady Studios. “We’re thrilled that PC players can finally wear the cowl for themselves and take on the role of the World’s Greatest Detective with the addition of the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift versions.”

Batman: Arkham VR will support both the Oculus Touch and Vive Controllers, and also have full gamepad support on PC, including the PS4™ Dual Shock 4 Controller, Xbox One Controller and the Steam™ Controller.
