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.
