While visiting Rocksteady Studios in London, the team let us film their motion-capture process and speak with lead animator Zafer Coban. Outside of the Batmobile, the team at Rocksteady is adding new moves and changing the way Batman fights for their final entry. The video also features cinematic director Paul Boulden directing the game’s cinematics, including an early conversation between Oracle and Batman.

Its interesting to see how the game is being made, and I’m looking forward to seeing the improvements to the game that are talked about in the video, like the smooth transition in and out of cinematic cut scenes. I don’t see how they can improve on the actual art of the game, all of the Arkham games have been beautiful, but I’m interested to see if it really looks any better than the previous titles.
