So we’re all definitely excited to watch “The Dark Knight Rises“, right? Gameloft is also giving you reason to be excited for the TDKR game on iOS / Android. Here’s a “spoiler” for you, they have a TDKR game ready to be released!
The above teaser shows off some of the gameplay, and below we have screenshots and some new information on the game. Modojo has posted an extensive preview of the game, and its peaked our interest with mentions of Batman’s arsenal of vehicles and gadgets…
The Dark Knight Rises, set to appear on iOS and Android, is an open-world 3D adventure that mostly follows its big screen counterpart. As such, expect to run into Selina Kyle (Catwoman), the monster Bane and other recognizable faces, including Lucius Fox and Commissioner Gordon. That said, you’ll follow missions closely tied to the plot, but from what we’ve seen, there’s plenty more to see and do in Gotham, which Gameloft split into separate districts.
As we expected, Batman makes use of an arsenal of gadgets. Players will use the Grapnel to quickly zip across Gotham or defeat enemies. The Batarang, meanwhile, comes in handy for knocking out thugs or hitting switches from a distance. In fact, it appears that most if not all of Batman’s toys have more than one practical use.
Finally, the game comes with vehicles like the Bat-Pod, perhaps limited to vigilante missions, and The Bat, for when you need to cover a lot of ground in the quickest time possible; Batman can also glide using his cape. No word on whether the Batmobile made the cut, but we’d be surprised if it didn’t.
There’s no official word on the release date yet, but we’re assuming the game will come out together with the movie this Friday (or maybe even tomorrow).
