PLOT: Our game is set in the Nolanverse storyline. It takes place during the events of The Dark Knight, yet elements of Batman Begins are still present: R'as Al Ghul is alive, the League of Shadows lives on, and Jonathan Crane has yet to be caught by the Batman. Sal Maroni has taken control of the Falcone Crime family after the former leader's mental breakdown in Arkham Asylum.
The Batman, having taken the law into his own hands, has gradually been lowering the amount of crime in the city and at the same time has inspired the people and the justice department to take action against the mob. The head of the Gotham City Police Department, Commissioner Gordon, has been going after the mob's life savings using marked bills in the mob banks, yet the crime families continue to be evasive. The police department is still corrupted, and a new crime syndicate lead by the chaotic Joker has stepped into the game, hired by the mob to take out the Batman. In the peak of this madness, the beloved district attourney, Harvey Dent, has been missing in action. Some believe him to be dead or captured, while others suspect that he has taken up vigilantism.
Some believe that restoring Gotham City to a prestine and safe place is impossible, and for good reason. Despite the change that has been taking place, the city is still rotting away at it's core. The slums and sewers have become a nest of the city's worst thugs, and the mob's influence over the businesses and businessmen of Northside Gotham City has corruptted more successful and powerful individuals.
New faces have made themselves known and have brought chaos and fear into the city along with them. Those dangerous men and women who do not ally with the mob are sometimes driven to conspire against them and work in violent, bloody operations to tear them down. Yet blood on the streets, even the blood of ruthless villains, is one thing the Batman cannot let lie. Even if the vigilantes strive to rid Gotham of it's worst villains, Batman knows he must rid the streets of their violence as well if there will ever be peace again in this city.
This action has made him unpopular among the most dangerous of men. And as such has put the people he knows and loves at risk. Things are worse than ever in Gotham City. It has become a more dangerous place then one could imagine.
The night is darkest before the dawn. And Gotham stands now in it's darkest hour...
