Batman Arkham City - New Detective Mode Detailed
Batmans detective vision has been given a few enhancements for his outing in Arkham City.
Game Director Sefton Hill has revealed a couple of key new upgrades - which make solving The Riddlers pesky puzzles a little easier for Gothams Dark Knight.
"As with nearly every area of the game were enhancing it. One example is the criminal database coupled with the new interrogation mechanic," he told the new issue of PSM3.
"The Riddler continues to taunt the Dark Knight with mind-bending puzzles and exploration challenges, but the location of his biggest secrets are known only to him and people hes told. Rather than unlocking their locations using maps, Batman will be able to scan a gang of thugs to find a potential informant."
Hill also discussed the interplay between the different mechanics - saying that using Batmans FreeFlow combat while trying to spare a single goon for interrogation may present a challenge.
"This is the guy you need to question, but first youll have to take down all the other gang members while sparing the one you want. That can be tough when Batmans in a seamless FreeFlow combo chain" said Hill.
Rocksteady has said Arkham City is reportedly complete and playable from start to finish.
