Rocksteady reveals Batman Arkham “finale”

Batman Arkham Knight

Trailer shows off gadgets, drivable Batmobile, villains and more.

Batman returns for one more outing in the Arkham series of games from the franchise-creator Rocksteady Studios, with Batman: Arkham Knight later this year.

The cinematic trailer strikes an epic tone, included below, with the familiar roster of colourful villains uniting to put an end to the caped crusader.

Set to come out later this year, Arkham Knight promises to feature a drivable Batmobile, which the pointy-eared one no doubt needs as London-based Rocksteady says you'll be able to zip-line across the entirety of Gotham City,

"The team at Rocksteady Studios is putting a tremendous amount of work into delivering the final chapter of our Batman: Arkham trilogy so that fans can feel what it’s like to be the Batman," comments Sefton Hill, game director at Rocksteady.

"We're excited to be developing the game for next-gen platforms, which has allowed us to bring to life the design elements that we envisioned from the beginning such as the Batmobile and how it augments Batman’s abilities, to the fully detailed and realized Gotham City."
