The long awaited day is finally here: the conclusion to Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy - The Dark Knight Rises - is playing in theatres across the world. To celebrate the finale of this epic trio of films, Gameloft has released a game of the same name into the Play Store.

In The Dark Knight Rises you play the role of Batman, who has been re-awakened after eight years of silence, to stop Bane from torturing Gotham. The game gives you access to Batman's arsenal of butt-kicking gadgetry, and puts you in all the appropriate situations to use it: car chases, bomb threats, hostage situations, and more.

Given the impressive graphical content of the game, it weighs in at a hefty 1.7 GB (but, c'mon, it's hard to recreate Gotham City and keep the file size down). And, like with most things, quality products have quality price tags: The Dark Knight Rises will set you back $6.99.

We'd like to express our sincerest condolences to all who were involved in the tragic incident in Aurora, CO. last night. Please keep the comments respectful and appropriate. 

[Thanks, ha33an!]

    This game is incompatible with the Galaxy S3, WTF?

      C'mon man, I was about to get it for my Samsung Galaxy SIII. I will try to install it on my Asus Transformer Prime (they connected with my old EVO 4G lte profile picture. I gave that phone to my Fiancee and got the Samsung Galaxy SIII 16GB. LOL).

    Good thing I don't have $6.99. lol. It's not compatible with the Nexus 7.

  • Zachary Bonjour

    LOL, I can play this on my 2 year old Droid X, but not a Nexus 7?

    Android Police - Why would you be posting this, & essentially advertising this today, of all days? Where is you common sense & decency? I guess you've already answered that....

      Are you talking about the massacre? What does it have to do with posting a new game? It's a sad and shocking event, but give me a break.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ David Ruddock

      Posting about a game is indecent because that game is based on a movie showing in theaters across the nation, one of which happened to be victim to a horrific, inhuman tragedy completely unrelated to the film playing on the screen? I take it going to see the new Batman film at all is in bad taste now, too. You better stand outside the movie theater and shame everyone buying tickets.

      We would never do something as crass and insensitive as belittle the deaths of these people.

      Probably because the game & movie just came out today (duh). I wonder if you even saw their note at the end of the article.

      neil philips - Posting a article about a game released today in the Google play store has no affect on what occurred last night. I highly doubt that in anyway the people affected by this tragedy care or even look at this article on android police
      (or are even on the internet today). If there is such thing as a dumb question, you had two of them. keep it to yourself.

    Incompatible with my Nexus 7. So much for Gameloft running their mouths about supporting the Nexus 7, yadda yadda. Them and EA - huge idiots.

    Android Police, its 3.6GB
    TWO downloads of 1.8gb
    Thats insane.

    • http://www.facebook.com/contest.chris Contest Chris

      How come TWO? And you know whats even more shitty? With exactly same art assets, the iOS download is 800MB and install size is 1.4GB. Shows that Gameloft is lazy and makes us download every different type of the game graphics (aspect ratio, resolution etc)

    Not available in Poland (yes, I checked many devices). Why, oh why?!

  • New_Guy

    Can someone explain how a human Batman can crush cars with his legs without tearing a meniscus?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Cameron Summerson

      He's Batman.

      • New_Guy

        oh, ok. now i get it =).

  • Barton82

    And what happened to Asphalt 7?

  • Wayne Meunier

    Check the Play Store now...I see it when browsing on my Nexus 7

  • Pockets

    Am I the only one disappointed by the fact you pay for the game and there are in app purchases? I think it is quite bullcrap to still want more money from us after charging 7 bucks.
