Rocksteady, the developer behind Batman: Arkham City, has revealed that their new game will be approximately five times the size of Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Despite this, Sefton Hill, the game's director, explained that it shouldn't be classified as a sandbox title.

"Players will be able to go anywhere at any time, but we have made sure that players will always have a very clear idea of where they are needed most if they want to just stick to the core narrative path of the game."

Arkham City will pit Batman against Two-Face and the Joker. Catwoman is also going to be appearing in the game. There will be some new gadgets and an evolved combat system. In other words, it should be even better than Arkham Asylum, which many consider to be the best super hero video game of all time.
