I believe in addition to having upgradable gadgets we would also have the ability to upgrade the suit -

His right knuckle, looks 'standard'.

Now check it out, is it me or does it look like he gained some brass knuckles?

Another one, left arm -

Beginning of the game, nothing

SAVE the image and ZOOM - you can tell there is some BULK on his knuckles that wasn't there before.

Opens up some new possibilities if its confirmed,

Upgrading knuckles or fighting abilities would be neat...but for me the knuckles look the same in all images. I think it was just the lighting that made them look differently.

I agree.

I agree.

Both wrong, I'm afraid. Check again. :)

It looks to me like the lighting makes it appear to be brass knuckles. But I am certain that the gloves are the same in every picture.
But hopefully you can upgrade his suit.

Personally, I think it would be cool if Batman can wear different suits for certain protection. Like an outfit made for cold for when you must fight Mr. Freeze.
These outfits would have built-in weaknesses to balance their strengths such as the cold suit being more susceptible to bullets and knives.
There could also be a heavier suit that has better defense against knives, bullets, and physical attacks but slows Batman down.

Different suits like these and supporting gadgets would make for some good puzzle-solving, and similar gameplay to Zelda where you must use the right suits and gadgets in the right situation.

I hope he has just one suit. Keep the art department in making the environment cool instead of wasting time on different models for batman.

I dunno, I guess toggling between suits in games just for specific encounters doesn't appeal to me...That sorta thing only seems to work well for Megaman.

I could see instead of upgraded gadgets, upgraded skills though.

Yeah that probably would be better. But it could still be implemented that instead of new suits, he just uses another gadget or suit piece for protection like a gas mask that prevents Batman from being affected by fear toxin. It wouldn't require a new suit, just a mask add-on.

And a "cold suit" or similar suit upgrades could still work but maybe you don't see a change in his appearance. It's just an upgrade to his suit that stays with Batman throughout the game after acquiring it. Basically it would be like gaining passive abilities such as freeze resistance, softer steps in predator mode so it's easier to sneak around, or instilling greater fear into the enemy.

Regardless, those four pads on his gloves knuckle area - looks like he has built in 'brass knuckle' like unit on to his glove. Im sure that was the look the developer was going for. Still cool.

guys that's 100% the same thing. Don't you guys think that if the developers would go out of their way to have an upgradable Bat-suit that they would make the changes more obvious?

That is true. They had cheap-kinda look Batman suit. It is true. Maybe the could make an upgrade option to special moves. but not to the Batsuit. At least I haven't heard or read about it.

I was informed by someone that this game was set over 1 night in arkham asylum, but there was no prove so I can't believe it yet. If that is the case then surely upgrading your suit would just confuse the timeline...

Yes it takes place over 'one night' in arkham. Thats why batmans suit is going to visually take damage to display how hellish this one night will be.
