Today May 21, 2014 Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment sent us several exclusive screenshots from Batman: Arkham Knight. Additionally, they revealed the first gameplay video. The new trailer, “Evening the Odds,” features the Scarecrow's terrifying plans to "unite the Rogues Gallery and destroy Batman once and for all." How does Batman "even the odds" you ask? Why, with the help of the new Batmobile.
The new Batmobile looks like a cross between the ones we've seen in the Tim Burton movies from the 90's and the latest The Dark Knight Trilogy by Christopher Nolan. The trailer looks absolutely gorgeous, and by the credits you'll know why: It's coming out exclusively for both next gen systems the PlayStation 4 and Xbox one, as well as Windows PC.
According to a press release we received from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment:
In the explosive finale to the Arkham series, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect. The Scarecrow returns to unite an impressive roster of super villains, including Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, to destroy The Dark Knight forever. Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady's uniquely designed version of the Batmobile, which is drivable for the first time in the franchise. The addition of this legendary vehicle, combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Batman Arkham series, offers gamers the ultimate and complete Batman experience as they tear through the streets and soar across the skyline of the entirety of Gotham City.
We're looking forward to driving the new Batmobile, are you?
Those who pre-order Batman: Arkham Knight can play as Harley Quinn, "utilize her unique weapons, gadgets, and abilities," and gain access to four exclusive challenge maps. Batman: Arkham Knight hits stores Oct. 14, 2014.
