Plot

As the title suggests, the game takes place in DC comic book universe, specifically in its version created especially for Batman: Arkham series released by Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment. The players assume the role of the titular superhero, who takes upon himself to solve the case of mysterious murders and stopping the conspiracy that is a danger to the Dark Knight’s allies.

Mechanics

In Batman: Arkham VR for PC / Windows, we see the action from the first person perspective, while the whole game was created in such a way so we can really feel like the Dark Knight. For example, the player has to put on the costume before embarking on a night patrol. During the gameplay, we can visit, among others, Wayne’s Manor along with the cave that serves as Batman’s hideout, but most of the action takes place in small fragments of Gotham.

Batman: Arkham VR places a special emphasis on adventure game elements. The gameplay mainly focuses on detective challenges in which we have to analyze the locations in search for clues, gather evidence, interrogate witnesses, and make certain conclusions based on gathered information. During those tasks, we use a number of technologically advanced gadgets that allow the Dark Knight to find evidence and analyze clues at the crime scenes without having to relocate to a forensic laboratory.

The gameplay is complemented by occasional simple arcade challenges.
