Just like the Caped Crusader himself, this gameplay trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight has swooped from nowhere and taken us completely by surprise. Showcasing how the superhero's newest adventure will look on next-gen hardware, it's not hard to get excited for a title that looks this slick.

Everything from Batman's armoured suit to the streets of Gotham looks positively polished, and the gameplay isn't bad either. Stretching a mere two minutes, the video perhaps isn't the blow-out that some have been anticipating, but it does show off a variety of clips. Cutscenes are aplenty, but we also get a few glimpses of the vehicular combat that the Batmobile provides. Are you already donning your cape and taking to the rooftops?
