Buckle Up with Four Minute Batman: Arkham Knight Trailer

Posted by Sammy Barker

Bitter memories

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.

Hype overload! I'm really hoping they can get the game out this year but whatever I'm just happy to have some news and see Rocksteady back at the forefront. I thought WB Montreal did an admirable job but this should be the follow up to City I was looking for.

Finally my Batman itch has been scratched! I love everything about this game and we don't even know much about it yet.

@Gamer83 My last 2 issues and the one I was supposed to get were undeliverable, so I have to go to the post office to see what's up.

This must have been the Arkham game that Kevin Conroy let slip prior to Origins being released.

Finally a reason to own a next/current (whatever you wanna call them) generation!

Thankfully I highly doubt it'll have any of the problems Origins does or the arrogance of that games developers who admit problems and say rather than fix them they'll release DLC instead. Morons.

@get2sammyb: Yeah I get what you are saying. What strikes me as odd is that yes the Xbox 360, and PS3 are still going strong people didn't have this whole current gen/next gen problem when the PS2 was going strong into the PS3 era. I never heard anyone refer to the PS3 as next gen when it was available along side the PS2.

@Tasuki To me it's only current generation when they are the primary set of consoles, which won't be until next year when games stop coming out for PS3/360.

I'm going with 'new gen' for PS4 and X1 right now. Next-gen is false because the consoles are here now but if you say current-gen some confuse it with PS3, 360.

This is one of 2014 Must Own Game's, the trailer is excellent. Gotham is in chaos as we see Batman preparing to fight for his life, but can Batman save Gotham and it's citizens?

Of course he can, he's friggin' Batman. I agree, can't wait for this game. I wish it wasn't so far away but the build up will be fun.

Yeah, I first saw the phrase used by Game Informer and it definitely fits so that's what I'm going with.

Awesome trailer, but I want to see gameplay before I get hyped.

I will certainly buy this game. I am a DC/Marvel Comics fan since the 90's.

Why is it so hard for Rocksteady to get Harley Quinn right? She looks better then before but she still looks relatively terrible. Why can't they just create/dress her like the animated series version?

The Batmobile looks like a nice mix of the Tumbler and Burton-era Batmobile.

It would be great if Batman was somewhere in the city, needed the Batmobile, pulled out an Ocarina, played a tune, and the Batmobile came running! Ha!

"Can you drive stick?"
"...no..."

@ThreadShadow: I agree I dont like the oversexual looking Harley Quinn to me that ruins her. I have always pictured her with a more innocent look that justifies what she does because of her love for the Joker. The over sexualized style does nothing for me.

Pre-orders are already available. I dropped by the local GameStop on my way to work. Pre-order bonuses are the Harley Quinn challenge maps and you get a poster if you want one. I'm a huge fan of the Batman universe so I took it to add to my Batman collection.

It's pretty cool. It's a 75th Anniversary poster. I think you can see it on the GameStop website, if I can, I'll try and post a pic of it later.

I like that. Yes, the "new" generation of consoles. Not to be confused with the last gen Wii, PS3 and 360.

This looks good. Real good. Normally, I'd complain about a lack of gameplay shown, however, I already know exactly what I can expect gameplay-wise. So for once, it's nice to just enjoy the cut-scene trailer and know a great game is coming.

I still gotta finish up Arkham City and Origins, which honestly, I probably will never get around to. Too many games to play on too many systems. The backloggery groweth to no end.

Hopefully new gen catches on. It'll work best until we've all moved on from our older consoles completely.

Speaking of older consoles though, I do have to get back to playing my PS3 more. Need to finish up Arkham Origins to get ready for the DLC. Unfortunately the game went on the back burner a bit after the PS4 came out I got hooked on Killzone, NFS, AC IV and then Tomb Raider came out. Now Thief has taken some of my attention as well and I've been going crazy on Vita games with all the free PS Plus games and some great sales. Just got Lumines for real cheap.
