Everyone Digs The Car In First ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ Trailer [Video]

WB Games/Rocksteady

Rocksteady Games is returning to the Batman franchise later this year with the newest, and perhaps last, game in the “Arkham” series of games, Arkham Knight.

The game will feature a new, driveable Batmobile, which resembles a somewhat smaller Tumbler from the Christopher Nolan Batman films. Though rumor has it that Hush will be appearing in the game, the confirmed villains so far are Scarecrow, Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn (who will even be playable in challenge maps), all of whom also appeared in previous Arkham games. Check out the game’s announcement trailer after the jump.

 

 

The trailer raises a lot of questions: How did Thomas Wayne know he was going to die and not see Bruce grow up? Did he realize that his letter would be so deeply ironic? Why does the Penguin look like Lou Grant? Perhaps players will get some answers when the game comes out later this year.

Rocksteady took a one-game break from the Arkham franchise with last year’s Batman: Arkham Origins, which was instead developed by WB Games Montreal. Origins received mixed marks from critics, a definite step down after both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City both earned game of the year honors.

It appears that Arkham Knight won’t be available for Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, and will instead only be made for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The next-generation systems might finally be getting their exclusive killer app that forces all us Batman fanatics to buy one.

No official release date has been set for Arkham Knight just yet, although as mentioned by Arcade Sushi, Gamestop has it available for preorder with an October 14 release date. What’s more, Gamestop is also already listing its preorder-exclusive (for now) Harley Quinn Challenge maps, which will allow fans to “play as Harley Quinn and receive 4 Exclusive Challenge Maps! Utilize her unique weapons, gadgets, and abilities.”
