A lot of work goes into designing a character, even an existing one, for a game. Characters like Batman and the Scarecrow have been around for decades, but whether its the comics or the games, we’re seeing new takes on the characters all the time.
In the third episode of Rocksteady Studios’ Arkham Insider, the developer talks in depth about the design of a few characters, focusing on the Arkham Knight, Scarecrow, and Batman. The Knights Dark and Arkham are both armored this time around, setup for war, and covered in tech. Scarecrow takes the creepy burlap sack mask idea that much further this time around, with it looking less like a mask and more like a second layer of skin.
The team also takes some time to answer some questions about the game. One especially interesting tidbit is that the Batmobile, like Batman himself, has a development tree for new gadgets and functions.
