As expected, Warner Bros has unveiled Batman: Arkham Knight for the PlayStation 4 – albeit courtesy of a GAME leak. The sequel – which is expected to feature on the cover of the latest issue of Game Informer magazine – is being helmed by series creator Rocksteady Studios, and will supposedly act as the “explosive finale” to the uber-popular Arkham franchise.

In order to wrap up the storyline, the next-gen exclusive release will plot the return of the Scarecrow, as well as various other super villains, such as “the Penguin, Two-Face, and Harley Quinn”. A sticker on the title’s UK box appears to indicate that you’ll unlock bonus challenge maps starring the latter character if you pre-order the game.

Perhaps most excitingly, the release will also allow you to drive the Batmobile for the first time in the series. “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," reads the blurb.

We’re still awaiting more information from the publisher, but this is the overview for now. Are you ready to step into the Dark Knight's shoes again? Shine your signal in the comments section below.
