A new rumor has dropped on 4Chan and it’s leaked a handful of alleged details as to what Rocksteady are working on at the moment: An open world Superman video game. I know, our brains nearly imploded, too.
Specifically, the rumor confirms that Rocksteady are indeed developing the project. The British company, who are best known for their work on the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham series, have been pretty quiet as of late, so take this news with a grain of salt for now. Still, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard about the game and what’s been revealed here is certainly intriguing.
From what we understand, it’ll be developed using the cutting edge Unreal Engine 4 and will feature a massive open world (about 3 times the size of Batman: Arkham Knight with a lot more buildings). Bizarrely, though, you won’t be able to play as Clark Kent. The post does mention, however, that your arch rival will be the extraterrestrial cyborg, Brainiac.
Furthermore, the alleged game will feature semi-destructible environments, much like Batman: Arkham Knight. Also, the combat system will integrate flying into its core mechanics, a little like Dragon Ball Z, where you can zoom towards your enemies and repeatedly punch them. Not only that, but it’ll also be set in the Arkham universe and filled to the brim with a ton of easter eggs that’ll flesh out Superman’s backstory and lore.
Again, none of this has been confirmed by the studio, but what we do know is that Rocksteady have promised us already that their next game will “blow our minds.” Could they be working on a project that’ll feature Superman, though? Or do you think this rumor is just too good to be true?
