GameSpot sat down with Sefton Hill from Rocksteady Studios, the developers of the highly anticipated Batman: Arkham City. Sefton brings some light to the next game in the franchise. "Arkham City is about five times bigger than Arkham Island", said Sefton. Rocksteady Studios has been hard at work. Everyone was shocked about how great the first game was and so the team has a lot to live up to. With such a bigger play area, Sefton insists that it won't be a sandbox-style game adding, "Players will be able to go anywhere at any time". Sefton also states that you can explore certain side alleys of Arkham City so you can find hidden side missions.
There are also new details about the combat system. They have updated the combat mechanics but they have not changed the core functionality. I personally hope they don't change too much of it. There is also talk about the villains you will expect to face, like Dr. Hugo Strange and maybe even the return of The Joker. GameSpot also asked about multiplayer but Sefton said they are not ready to announce anything yet. I never thought about this game having multiplayer, to be honest. I want to hear from you on whether you would like to see a multiplayer component in Batman: Arkham City or if you think it should strictly remain a single-player experience.
