Over the last few days the gaming blogosphere has been a twitter about hints that a new Batman game was coming from Rocksteady. Today, the world was officially introduced to Batman: Arkham Knight, the third game in the Arkham Asylum trilogy (we just won't talk about Origins, shant we?) via the announcement of the April Game Informer cover. In addition Warner Brothers Interactive released an official, and very awesome, trailer. You can watch the awesome for yourself after the jump.
Batman: Arkham Asylum was one of the first Action Adventure titles that I remember playing from start to finish. I absolutely loved the stealth and detective aspects of Batman's talent set that the game brought to light. I hope that Arkham Knight builds upon these mechanics while also bringing something new to the table. We know the something new already: This last game will have a much larger world than the first two (*ahem* three) games, as Batman now has use of the Batmobile. Suddenly all of Gotham will lay before him, so baddie beware -- the masked man in black is coming for you.
Batman: Arkham Knight will launch October 14, 2014 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. That's two 14s for the folks playing at home.
Holy trailers, Batman! That was pretty cool. Also excited that the Bat Mobile is modeled after older renditions and not the new tank-looking vehicular monstrosity.
That looks wicked! I keep saying different rumors going around comparing this batman model to Ben Affleck, I don't see it though.
My wife loves Karl Urban, and he did the best Dredd movie ever, if you are into that kind of thing.
WOOT! Can't wait for it. I also heard that Kevin Conroy will do the voice for Batman/Bruce Wayne again
