She is playable, but we dont know to what degree.

Awesome trailer though, love the way she moves and fights, seems like a fully realised feature rather than something tacked on.

Hope its more of a side story rather than part of the main campaign. The whole point of the game is that "you are batman" and any break in that mantra weakens it.

She will be playable in the main campaign, there's an interview on gamespot confirming this:

She looks insane.

I wonder how they will balance it so Catwoman isn't just way more fun than playing as Batman

Oh man, that looks fucking killer, and Catwoman does look like a blast to play.

So far, she's the only character in Rocksteady's line of Batman games that I'm not super keen on the design of. I'm just not a fan of the exposed face/goggles combo. Just a minor gripe that won't affect my enjoyment of the game one bit.

Do want!

Their (Batman and Catwomen) styles are so different that people will prefer one over the other. The balance will surround 'access' if each gameplay/ character type recieve enough air time so to speak, I think that the gameplay differences would serve as a change of pace instead of a hindrance for anyone that prefers Catwomen over Batman and vice versa.

Agreed. If she's in there as maybe a new way to get into places Batman can't access, AND she has new gadgets/moves/etc, then I welcome it. Pardon my language, but fuck anyone who would complain that they don't get to play as Batman the whole time if that ends up being the case.

Also to hell those who don't want Catwoman as playable the whole game.

lols. :P

I think Rocksteady is clever to make her being playable as part of the story, instead of another feature to tack on the box.

"As he wrapped up the demo, Ginn shared a few more details on what to expect from Catwoman in the game. Her narrative will only make up about 10 percent of the whole game which will amount to only a handful of switches to her for the story. However you'll want to invest some time with her and engaging in unique side missions to earn experience to level her up as well as collect those Riddler trophies."

Might sound like a bad thing, having so little of her, but I trust Rocksteady with their clever design decisions like not pandering to the fanbase with playable Bat vehicles.

Of course, it'd be extra fucking cool if there was a separate free-roam mode or NG+ where you can run around as Catwoman in a sandbox way.

Well, it looks like Catwoman~ *puts on sunglasses* ~will be "playable"... YEAAAAAAAH!

... or imagine if you fall into a pool of water...

Well, it looks like this pussy~ *puts on sunglasses* ~has got herself wet...

Damn, there's like a TON of Horatio jokes you could do! :D

Anyway, I really enjoyed the first game. Don't think it will be any different with this one!

Eh day one without a shadow of a doubt! Rocksteady shown what they are capable of and I'm sure they won't disappoint with this gem!

About the game

  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (17 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (17 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (18 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (18 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (18 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (19 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (19 Hours ago)
