Gameloft Announces The Dark Knight Rises for iOS

Gameloft has revealed to IGN that they’ll be releasing an open-world game called The Dark Knight Rises this summer. There’s no specific release date yet, but we’d be surprised if it didn’t launch around the July 20 release of the film. Check out the teaser trailer below.

While there’s not a whole lot of gameplay in the trailer, you do get to see Batman do what he does best: bring a stylish beat down to some scummy thugs. According to IGN, it will be an open-world game, perhaps similar to Batman Arkham City on the consoles. That would be a more ambitious take on the Dark Knight than his last appearance on iOS in Batman Arkham City Lockdown, which we rather enjoyed.

Gameloft seems to have the lockdown on upcoming superhero movie tie-ins, with The Amazing Spider-Man also on the way. Let’s hope they both live up to fans’ expectations.
