Batman’s “No-Killing” Policy Gets Dubious in New BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT Trailer

Last week, we got a new Batman: Arkham Knight trailer showing off the Batmobile, and the Dark Knight’s wheels are also the focus of the latest trailer.  The story takes place one year after the events of Batman: Arkham City and finds the titular superhero squaring off against Scarecrow, who has united Batman’s enemies in a plot to finally kill The Bat.  To make matters more complicated, the mysterious “Arkham Knight” is in the mix.  As you know, Batman doesn’t kill bad guys, and developer Rocksteady even made a point of this in their games by showing how Batman only incapacitates his enemies.  But this new trailer shows off the Batmobile’s minigun and cannon blowing other vehicles to hell, so unless those tanks are remote-controlled or have robots in the driver’s seat, the Caped Crusader may have come to terms with making his enemies die in an explosion.

Hit the jump to check out the new Batman: Arkham Knight trailer.  The game hits PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on June 2, 2015.

New BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT Trailer Breaks out the Batmobile

It’s been too long since we saw a new Batman: Arkham Knight trailer, but Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has now given us a fresh look at the upcoming video game, which takes place one year after the events of Batman: Arkham City and finds the titular superhero squaring off against Scarecrow, who has united Batman’s enemies in a plot to finally kill The Bat.  To make matters more complicated, the mysterious “Arkham Knight” is in the mix.

In this trailer, we get a good look at some of the gameplay.  Specifically, we see how developer Rocksteady has attempted to seamlessly integrate the Batmobile into the combat by having Batman leap out of the vehicle to fight his enemies.  If you’re asking why Batman doesn’t just run everyone over, remember that Batman doesn’t kill people.  Hitting a person with a fast-moving assault vehicle tends to result in vehicular homicide.  But the gameplay does look cool, although I’m always wary of vehicles in video games because so many have awful controls.  Hit the jump to check out the new Batman: Arkham Knight trailer.  The game hits PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 2, 2015.

Last week E3 2014 came to a close, but it left plenty to be excited for in the near future.  The “Big 3”, Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony, all have their Next Gen systems in consumer hands, so this year was all about proving why you shouldn’t lose faith in their product.  With owners of the Xbox One, Wii U, and Playstation 4 all clamoring for games for their libraries, there are quite a few titles I think you should be on the look out for.  Click on through to see my top games and over a 100 pictures of E3 2014.

BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT Trailer: Ride the Batmobile and Destroy Gotham City

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released an extended gameplay trailer for Rocksteady’s upcoming conclusion to the Batman: Arkham trilogy, Batman: Arkham Knight.  The fourth main game in the Batman: Arkham series, Arkham Knight takes place one year after the events of Batman: Arkham City and finds the titular superhero squaring off against Scarecrow, who has united Batman’s enemies in a plot to finally kill The Bat.  This new trailer shows the Batmobile in action, and while it’s got some cool moves, and shows Batman willing to run over the city he’s sworn to protect, I don’t understand using a car when his ability to fly would presumably get you across Gotham City so much faster.

Batman Goes Iron Man in New BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT Gameplay Trailer

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.

New BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT Images Reveal Eponymous Villain

Warner Bros. has released seven new images from Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Knight.  The game will be the conclusion to the Arkham trilogy, and while details are still scarce, the overall plot has Scarecrow trying to unite Gotham’s villains now that there’s a power vacuum in the city.  But despite familiar rogues such as Harley Quinn, Two-Face, and The Penguin, the main villain is the titular “Arkham Knight”.  These images provide our first look at the character, and he looks like a robot Batman, although it could be a highly-advanced suit.  In any case, he clearly doesn’t share the Dark Knight’s values since the Arkham Knight uses a gun.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  Batman: Arkham Knight will be released later this year on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Four-Minute Announcement Trailer for BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT; Batmobile Will Be Drivable for First Time in the Series

Most reviews labeled Batman: Arkham Origins as a serviceable continuation of the series, but it came with the caveat that the developer was WB Montreal instead of Rocksteady, who created the first two games, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City.  Rocksteady has now “returned” to the series (I doubt they ever really left; they probably just wanted more time to work on their game, and Warner Bros. didn’t want a three-year gap between entries), with Batman: Arkham Knight.  A four-minute announcement trailer has been released, and in all honesty, it’s pretty silly.  It’s pulling a page from the Man of Steel playbook by having the dead father narrate hopes for his superhero son, and some of the moves Batman does are ridiculous.  But Rocksteady’s Arkham games have been incredibly fun, and this will be the first one where you can drive the Batmobile, although I’m not sure how that gets you around faster than being able to fly like in Arkham City.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer and a brief plot synopsis.  Batman: Arkham Knight will be released later this year on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 (so I guess I’m going to have to buy one of those…).
