With Batman Arkham Knight shaping up to be the most mature, the most brutal and the most interesting game in the popular series thus far, it’s about time we got to hear some more about what The Scarecrow has in store for us in the city of Gotham. Luckily for us, Gaz Deaves, the social marketing manager at Rocksteady Studios, has told us quite a bit of information about the masked man with a fondness for hallucinogenics.
Talking about him, Deaves’ said “Scarecrow is a hugely inspiring character to work with. He’s the principal antagonist this time around, and we chose him for our main villain because he reflects and magnifies some of Batman’s most powerful characteristics. The Dark Knight uses fear as a weapon, but Scarecrow is a true master of terror.”
I think it’s fair enough to say that’s true, but they seem to be focusing on Scarecrows often ignored intellect this time around, an interesting look at the character reveals that he “understands the value of being a symbol just as much as Batman, and uses that to create uncertainty and fear in his enemies.”
So in terms of the game, what can we expect to see from him? Well…”In terms of both gameplay and narrative, that makes him very interesting, because as a player you never know what to expect from him.”
Batman Arkham Knight releases this June on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
