Amid the slew of recently teased images and leaks, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has revealed a new game-play trailer that shows off a variety of promises for the Cape Crusader’s newest outing.
After Last year’s disappointing entry; Batman: Arkham Origins, Warner Bros have handed the much acclaimed franchised back to Rocksteady Studios, with the hopes that the developers of the best iterations (Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City) will revive the series. I couldn’t commend the decision more, as I consider Rocksteady’s Batman games to be some of the best out there, and was put off by Origins for the exact reason that it wasn’t being developed by them.
With this new trailer, the hype is sure to increase. Since Arkham Asylum, the series has expanded into sections of Gotham City, yet this trailer seems to reveal that Knight will take place throughout the entire iconic metropolis. A new threat has emerged, and clearly intends to terrorize the citizens of Gotham, and of course, Batman’s job is to save the day. The trailer hints at new armour for the dark knight, we catch glimpses of the new villain, Batman works his trademark bat-swoop and martial arts skills and we’re also treated to an appearance by Two-face.
But obviously, the most exciting element of the trailer is the apparent introduction of the Bat-mobile! With a slick new design featuring dark metal panelling and a high-powered booster, Batman’s iconic ride is looking pretty sweet. We even get to see the car in action; speeding through what look like sewer pipes, and laying waste to enemy vehicles.
Safe to say, Batman’s new Knight out (get it?), looks to be extremely eventful.
Batman: Arkham Knight is being developed by Rocksteady Studios and will published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment on October 14th 2014 for Xbox One, PS4 and Microsoft Windows
