The platform you are on is actually a moveable crane that Batgirl can activate with the Remote Hacking Device. Do so, and move the crane to one side of the rig to find a hole in the ceiling to grapple up to. Move through the grate and grapple up to find 8 thugs standing around a large boiler.
Batgirl may not have a Fear Multi-Takedown ability, but the power to sow fear can still be used with her hacking skills. Cause the boiler to blow, sending everyone into a mass panic as you dive into the fray.
For a limited time, any attack you make will be an instant takedown as long as the thugs are still panicking, so try to hit as many as you can before they regain their composure and fight back. There are even a few Enviromental Takedowns to take advantage of if you have any stragglers left. With the thugs KO'd, hack the terminal near the boiler password: Wealth to open the door and continue making your way up the rig by climbing the stairs and grappling up when you run out of platform.
At the top, use the Batclaw to open the nearby grate and climb up to find three armed thugs with a hostage. Since taking them head on is not a great idea, hack the command console to turn out the lights, causing the thugs to get spooked and look around with their limited vision.
Sneak up on as many as you can and use a silent takedown before the lights come on, and finish off whoever is left. Rescue the hostage, and continue on up the ladders and keep grappling to the near top of the Oil Rig.
As you do, Robin will inform you of a potential bomb threat. Hit it with a Batarang and climb up to survey the amusement park.
Once you've gained your vantage point, Batgirl will toss out a Remote Batarang to scan for hostages, similar to how Batman did at Ace Chemicals.
You'll need to scan for three different signals: After scanning all three locations, its your choice which group of hostages to rescue first. As you approach, note the 2 snipers on perches on each side of the wheel.
Take them out quietly, one at a time, then focus on the remaining 4 thugs wandering the area.
Thanks to Batgirl's keen sense of hacking, you'll be able to tell what is hackable at a distance - which includes electrified floor panels, fortune teller machines that will distract enemies, and a few gates that you can trap thugs in. Use only a few of them to scare and take out your foes, you'll find out why soon enough. When all 4 thugs are down, head to the large green control panel in front of the Ferris Wheel, only to have it speed up even more, and a whopping 9 more thugs will enter the fray, including a medic.
Without Batman's disruptoryou'll need to rely on traps to take out the medic and his friends in short order. Sometimes silently taking out an enemy in front of a hackable object and lure more towards their doom. Just be careful and remember what Batgirl is and is not capable of. When at last all of the second wave is down, return to the console to shut the Ferris Wheel down, and maneuver it slowly and stop when you see a hostage in the carriage - and let them both out.
Loading [ edit ] Robin will report with news of a bomb needing to be defused over at the Great White Shark ride. Head across the Oil Rig and swoop right through the mouth of the mechanical beast and get to beating the thugs inside. Robin will appear momentarily to help - but take note - you'll be on a timer now, as the bomb isn't waiting around to explode.
One of the thugs will include a medic, as well as one with a stun rod, and since you don't have an REC Gun, either a batarang to interrupt him, or target the opponent with a special takedown.

Use a variety of Environmental, Special, and Dual Takedowns to even the odds quickly and smoothly to give yourself more time to get over to hack the bomb. There are several fake codes, the true one being Charlatan. With the bomb defused, it's back to finding the other two hostage sites.

The Merry-Go-Round [ edit ] Travel over to the large Merry-Go-Round to find a few police officers being held below ground in the center of the ride. As you explore the attraction, the Joker will lower you into the ride, before sending in the clowns. You'll have to hold your own against a large horde of thugs while the chamber holding the police officers slowly fills with water.
This means you'll need to work fast using what limited abilities you have, and taking out any medics the moment you spot them. When the thugs have finally been dealt with, waste no time swapping to your Explosive Gel and spraying the center prison and exploding it to free the hostages.
Quickly grapple and glide across the Oil Rig to the entrance, and glide through the jaws of the crazy looking fish that marks the entrance to the park, and head down the balcony to the lower level where Robin is waiting. Again, there are multiple choices to this bomb hack, and only one is the right answer password: As you disarm the bomb, the Joker will once again send a new horde of enemies to meet you, armed with medical equipment, bats, and more.
Thankfully you'll have Robin with you to make short work of the gang, as well as a few opportunities for Environmental Takedowns. When they are taken care of, only the last group of hostages remain. The Ghost Ship [ edit ] Head over to the half of a ship looming out on one side of the amusement park, where you'll find 5 armed thugs, including a sniper on the upper floor.
Make him a priority as you swoop in through the broken ceiling and take him out, then lure the rest up, or use the fortune telling machine outside to cause a distraction. With the 5 thugs out of the way, you'll need a way down.
Luckily a nearby crane is carrying a heavy load, which you can hack to control. Grapple up to the crane and use the controls to swing the cargo over the large sealed cargo bay, and drop it to create your own entrance.
Arkham Knight is the first in the series to use the Apex physics simulation engine to have items like cloth, such as Batman's cape, react realistically to movement or wind.
As Hill explained, the development team knew the single-player game would take the team's full effort, with their "focus on making the best single-player experience we can.
We [did not] feel that it [needed] a multiplayer element. Alongside minor elements like neon lights, billboard advertising, and American-style cars, the team developed ideas for shops that could be found in the city, while retaining a grimy, dystopian theme. Describing the design, Hego said: You couldn't pinpoint whether it's twenty years ago, now or in ten years time. How does it affect Batman when things happen to him? What is his psychological make up? Those are the influences behind the game The design also added armor over Batman's shoulders, covering the previously exposed cape, to make it appear more feasible that it could hold Batman's weight without failing during gliding.
The Penguin lost his long coat, and was made to look dirtier, his clothing showing signs of sweat and food stains, and his head was shaved. For Two-Face, the designers felt the character did not require changing significantly, and instead emphasized existing character traits, particularly his disfigured flesh, using references of burnt flesh as inspiration. Similarly, they wanted to retain the typical Riddler characterizations like green shirts emblazoned with question marks, but instead had the character design evolve throughout the game, modifying his own costume in response to the events of the plot.
On his continued involvement in the series, Arundel said "One of the good things about doing a sequel, is you get the opportunity to redo [things you wished you changed], to revisit things We have a set of material that we want to keep consistent, like the Batman theme We wanted to keep [that] theme and tailor it more to the story for this game.
How can we get the Scarecrow element out of that one theme. Buckley received Arundel's work from Arkham Asylum to help create new variations on the chords and melody from the original theme.
The Batmobile edition contains the Limited edition items, but replaces the Batman statue with a transformable Batmobile statue. Consumers were able to receive a refund or have their purchase transferred to another collector's edition.

Sefton Hill and the Rocksteady team were caught off guard by the rating; Hill explained that they did not create the game with a specific rating in mind, but that "It's unavoidable that some bad stuff is going to happen.
But that doesn't mean we changed our approach. We're not including gratuitous blood or swearing.
We want to deliver a true end with no compromises, and it takes us to some dark places. The team decided to maintain the offending content so that it would not "jeopardize" their vision for the game and its thematics. These included a Big Head mode, which makes all characters in the game have disproportionate heads; a photo mode, which allows players to edit photos taken during gameplay; the ability to use the original voice cast, with localized subtitles; and updates to the game's AR challenges.
These included the ability to select all playable characters from the game and its downloadable content DLC to be used in all combat and predator challenge maps. Previously, each map had predefined character selection; the addition of a harder difficulty setting on combat challenges; more round-based challenges as well as interior map locations; and the removal of the blue wall around the challenges, which players found distracting. The content carries over the Dual Play function and hacking ability, which allows Batgirl to take down enemies, control objects, and solve puzzles.
Design producer Justin Vazquez said, "Hacking is really what separates her from the other characters Our intention was that Batgirl should be less powerful than Batman, but that Batgirl plus hacking could give her opportunities to do things that not even Batman can pull off.
