PlayStation Plus free game is still one of the best-looking open-world games we've played

PlayStation Plus free game is still one of the best-looking open-world games we've played

Play one of the best games ever for free!

There are a lot of games that can stake a claim for being one of the best ever but at least when it comes to open-world superhero games, it doesn't get much better than Batman: Arkham Knight.

Released in 2015 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, developed by Rocksteady Studios, Batman: Arkham Knight is the conclusion to the trilogy that began with Batman: Arkham Asylum in 2009, followed up by 2011’s Arkham City. In my opinion, Batman: Arkham Knight is the best of the trilogy and a fitting conclusion to its story arc inspired by the DC franchise.

I say the conclusion, but Warner Bros. Games and Rocksteady Studios claimed that 2024’s woefully poor disappointment that is Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a continuation of that trilogy, but we all know that was a cheap ploy to enhance sales. In terms of story, gameplay and visuals, Batman: Arkham Knight puts most modern-day games to shame and that most certainly includes Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League.

“Live the complete Batman experience as the Dark Knight enters the concluding chapter of Rocksteady’s Arkham trilogy. Players will become The World’s Greatest Detective like never before with the introduction of the Batmobile and enhancements to signature features such as FreeFlow Combat, stealth, forensics and navigation,” reads the description of the game.

With all that in mind, if you subscribe to PlayStation Plus Extra/Premium, you can play Batman: Arkham Knight right now at no extra cost. However, if you’ve managed to avoid the entire Batman Arkham series, you’ll often find Batman: Arkham Collection - which includes the entire trilogy and all DLC - discounted in various digital sales.

So what are you waiting for? The entire Batman Arkham trilogy is available now on PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch.
