I really enjoyed Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, but it looks like developer Rocksteady has gone bonkers with the upcoming conclusion of the trilogy, Batman: Arkham Knight. Batman’s moves are ridiculous, all of his villains are teaming up with Scarecrow as the main bad guy, and now a new trailer shows that the Dark Knight has Iron Man-style armor. How much damage can I possibly take from a random street thug if I’m wearing metal-plated armor? Also speaking of ridiculous, this new trailer bills itself as a “Gameplay”, and while I’m sure the game will look amazing, I doubt it will be using many of these camera angles during gameplay. Hit the jump to check out the new Batman: Arkham Knight gameplay trailer. The game will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 14th. Click here to pre-order the game on Amazon.

Here’s the official synopsis for Batman: Arkham Knight:
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.
