Final Trailer for BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY

     October 14, 2011


I’m counting down the hours until Batman: Arkham City is released (as of this posting, it’s 84).  I’ve been anticipating the game since the moment I finished Batman: Arkham Asylum, and judging by the reviews (which I take with a grain of salt, although I’d like to believe them) it’s been worth the wait.  We’ve received trailers for almost every major villain in the game, but with the game only days away, a final trailer has gone online and it’s the best one yet.  The teaser trailer focused on Dr. Hugo Strange, the man ostensibly in charge of the entire prison district although various street gangs vie for control.  We’ve now come back to the bad doctor and his continued fascination with the Dark Knight.  Everything is on display here, from the action to the gadgets to the landscape and hopefully to the quality story (the one aspect that has caused me serious concern despite Paul Dini’s involvement).  I’ve had high expectations for Arkham City from day one and these trailers have only served to make them higher to the point where they may be unreachable.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  Batman: Arkham City hits Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 18th.
