Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have released a new Batman: Arkham Knight trailer showing that Batman may be up against an army, but he’s also got plenty of friends. The trailer highlights the game’s new “Dual Play” feature, “which will allow players to seamlessly switch between The Dark Knight and his allies including Robin, Nightwing, and Catwoman in FreeFlow Combat.” I’m not really sure how that will make the game more fun since I’ve never felt so backed into a corner that I needed to switch to another ally to help me out. Also, this is not co-op play. This is just jumping to another character, and while that may make for some cool fights, I’m curious to see how much it adds to the overall gameplay.
Check out the new Batman: Arkham Knight trailer below. The game will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on June 23rd.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Batman: Arkham Knight is based on DC Comics’ core Batman license and will be available on June 23, 2015 exclusively for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC.
