Catwoman Comes With ‘Thief Vision’
When you play as Catwoman, you don’t have detective mode vision which was one of Batman’s trademark. Instead, you get thief vision. This flags up what Catwoman can steal and in the demo we saw, it only extended as far as safes and the like. Will be interesting to see what the final game offers in terms of what the female thief can break into…
Batman: Arkham City is making a few changes to its formula by allowing players to slink around as Selina Kyle or Catwoman. With Batman’s arsenal, gadgets and morals left at street level Catwoman will have a whole host of different moves. This goes some way to suggest that she may be more than bit part level that players only get a glimpse at, like the Joker’s appearance towards the latter half of the original game.
Catwoman will also forgo Batman’s Detective Vision for her own Thief Vision. She’ll be able to steal items and from the E3 demo in Warner Bros. booth it currently only extends to safes. How far Rocksteady Studios decides to take this new element could shake up what was already looking like a superb sequel.
