How do you satiate a fanbase outraged the hideously overpriced Season Pass of your upcoming triple-A game? Emphasis just how triple A your game is. That seems to be the mantra Warner Bros. are adopting with regards to Batman: Arkham Knight, having just revealed the game’s star-studded cast of voice actors.
Batman: Arkham Knight is the final game in the Arkham series, and Rocksteady and Warner Bros. have pulled out all the stops with this one. Returning to voice the caped crusader is Kevin Conroy, who was conspicuously absent in Arkham Origins. Jonathan Banks, best remembered as Mike Ehrmantraut from Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, will portray Commissioner Gordon. Ashley Greene of Twilight fame will portray Gordon’s daughter, Barbara, AKA Oracle, AKA Batgirl, who will be playable through DLC.
Meanwhile, John Noble from Sleepy Hollow and Fringe will portray Scarecrow, Troy Baker will voice Two Face, Nolan North as Penguin, Tara Strong as Harley Quinn, and Scott Porter as Nightwing.
Set one year after Batman: Arkham City, Arkham Knight will see Batman take on Scarecrow, the Penguin, Harley Quinn and Two Face all at once as they team up to finally kill the Dark Knight. It will be out on June 23 this year for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with Mac and Linux versions coming later in the year.
