Several Articles about this are scattered through out Arkham about this incident. However this storm has yet to occure. Nothing in the game resembled the freak storm aside from the rain pouring at the begining cut-scene, if the storm has happened, then the side effects have yet to happen.

In this Braking News the Mayor requests an evacuation of the city much like in cataclysm people evacuated the city. And since the sequel is being compared to Batman Cataclysm (i.e. gametrailers video) the freak storm could be this catastorophic event instead of the earthquake. The storm might eventually lead up to riots, fights, gang wars, seperation of sections of the city, ect...

As you may notice there is a "freak" of some sort in the picture of this article, this could be a new model of thugs for the villains that batman might face. The thug appears to be holding a gun and there appears to be some sort of mask on his face that the knif weilding thugs had in B AA 1 or possibly a gas mask. What could have cause this to happen, gang war, riots? What if this freak storm is the cause of the segregation of parts of the city in B AA2? Since no major news about the storm were released during the first game something will eventually happen with it, Rocksteady put that article there for a reason. It's just interesting to see what will be the result of this Freak Storm if Rocksteady continues with it.

There appears to be a message written bellow the picture I can't appear to make it out. You can view the message clearer at the Arkham Penitentary, it's scattered all over the floor in certain areas, right before you enter the room with Harley Quinn's and Mr. Freezes holding cells is one area.


What are your thoughts about this "Freak Storm"?

I hope it offers some crazy game-play mechanics during the Gotham City parts of the game.

@Riddling Artist
Yes, these articles are scatered all over the penitentary, it might be a possible clue towards possible events in future Batman games that rocksteady makes.

very insightful, i believe that this is very plausible as the developers like to give hints on what to expect next, also if were analyzing articles then that would suggest that Prometheus and firefly might be in the next game, i betting that we will see freeze as well.

I doubt the whole storm thing is gonna play into the sequel, it was probably just to add atmosphere

What about the picture of the gun weilding "thug," whats the reason for that?

It's an interesting theory, and one that makes sense. Good observation :)

But don't you think there is more to the freak storm then just rain and thunder. By more I mean panics and riots ergo the picture, and that it should be explained further in depth toward why that's happening?

I was hoping this would play a part in the sequel. After seeing the newspaper all around Arkham, I would expect it to be somewhat important in the next game.

It may either be this, the earthquake from No Man's Land or both. There could be flooded areas and power outages as well.

Exactly, therefore this would lead up to riots and the sectioned off parts of the city.

Yeah,or its just completley random and they were just paying attention to detail. The newspaper could have read anything it doesnt make much difference because it doesnt really mean anything

Time to go and decipher the text under the picture, which infact is readable and not complete giberish, so far. :p

Didn't Gordon say something like "We finally got you." or something along those lines to Joker in The Dark Knight?
