Batman: Arkham Knight sees the return of developer Rocksteady to reign in the finale of the critically acclaimed Arkham video game franchise.
In light of all the recent leaks this past week Warner Brothers has finally unveiled the final(?) instalment in the Arkham franchise. You can catch the reveal trailer above.
Said to feature Scarecrow as the lead villain (with the aid of Penguin, Two-face, and Harley Quinn) and to introduce a playable Batmobile for the first time! As a first look I would say this instalment is shaping up to be pretty big.
Take a look at the official statement below:
“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.
Batman: Arkham Knight is based on DC Comics’ core Batman license and will be available exclusively for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC. The game is scheduled for release worldwide in 2014.”
Oh, and for those of you who love their DLC Harley Quinn is available to all who pre-order the game. Much like Deathstroke was in ‘Origins’.
Update: Game Informer (great magazine and site) has released a small video detailing the focus of Rocksteady in regards to this final chapter.
