As the old saying goes, the bat’s out of the bag. Warner Bros has officially announced Batman: Arkham Knight – and it’s coming to the PlayStation 4 later this year. The sequel will once again see you step inside the steel toe capped boots of Gotham’s greatest detective, only this time the Batmobile will be riding shotgun in your battle against crime.

In celebration of the Rocksteady Studios developed sequel’s announcement, the publisher has pointed the Bat Signal at a new cinematic trailer, which sets the scene on the series finale’s story. In it, we see Bruce Wayne preparing for a punch up, while his father’s will is read aloud. Eventually, the superhero catches up with Two-Face, Harley Quinn, and Penguin – and picks a fight.

We quite like the new grounded art direction, but we’re eager to see how this will look in-game. Are you excited for the upcoming adventure? Riddle us this in the comments section below.
