The upcoming multiplatform video game, "Batman Arkham Knight," will include an exclusive feature on the PS4. According to a report from Super Hero Hype on June 9, a gameplay video was shown for the open-world action-adventure title. The footage includes a sequence featuring the superhero gliding and driving around Gotham City, the new location that will be several times bigger than Gotham City.

After the video was concluded, a representative from Sony Computer Entertainment disclosed that "Batman Arkham Knight" comes with exclusive content on Playstation platforms. PS4 players will be able to experience missions based on the Scarecrow's nightmare sequences. Although no additional details have been announced, the quests should be similar to the same scenarios found in the previous installments of the series.

This isn't the first time Sony Computer Entertainment has partnered with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. The two companies started working together with the original "Batman Arkham Asylum" as PS3 players got several exclusive missions playing as the Joker. It appears that the partnership is going well as it is continuing with the upcoming release.

"Batman Arkham Knight" was originally slated to be one of the biggest holiday releases. However, the project got delayed indefinitely into next year as a member of the development team admitted that additional time is needed. It is not the only high profile next-generation game to be pushed back as "The Order 1886" and "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" also got postponed. As a result, the PS4 and Xbox One software lineups may not look as enticing for the rest of this year.

Along with the PS4, "Batman Arkham Knight" is also in development for the PC and Xbox One platforms. Due to some of the new features such as the Batmobile, the software product requires more resources than the PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360 could handle. As a result, it is only coming to computers and next-generation systems.
