Batman: Arkham Knight has been hiding out in Wayne Towers for a little longer than we would have liked of late, so it’s nice to see the PlayStation 4 superhero sequel score over three minutes of brand new gameplay footage. This is the first of three clips, with the final trailer to be shown during Sony’s keynote at its PlayStation Experience event in Las Vegas. Is that the first indication that the forthcoming get together will have a press conference-esque format to it?
We’re not certain – but we do know that this clip is impressive. The wealth of acrobatic abilities added to the Caped Crusader’s arsenal are stunning to say the least, with the star taking out foes from beneath vents, and in conjunction with the Batmobile. The way that the release appears to segue between car combat, navigation, and straight-up action is amazing – but this trailer does seem to be heavily edited.
Still, if the gameplay’s as frantic as it appears here, then this is going to be an extraordinary end to Rocksteady’s already stellar series. It’s looking amazing, too, with the button prompts suggesting that this is actual PS4 footage – though it could also be captured from a PC. Either way, are you impressed by what you’ve seen? Shove our head into an electric panel in the comments section below.
The combat looks so satisfying. This is going to be amazing.
impressive .. like (1:58) "where do I find scarecrow ? "
@eliotgballade "WHERE ARE THEY?!"
Now that gameplay looks sick. Glad they took the extra time to get this thing right. Can't wait.
@get2sammyb : LOL !
holy jeepers Batman.
I'm not a huge batman fan, but that actually gave me chills. The part where he 180's and drops the scientist off before blazing back in? The batmobile sound effects through that whole sequence are SPOT on. Now that Rocksteady are back in charge I literally can't wait to get my grubby paws on it.
Looks plenty of fun, story seems a bit meh from the brief glimpse of it.
@Jazzer94 @get2sammyb LOL
That is on my list, can't wait for that shiz to drop it's going to be sssssssick.
@Bad-MuthaAdebis Dude you are literally like the hardest person to impress lol that looked awesome!
after shadow of mordor i'm in full on hype mode for this, would be awesome if the nemesis system was put into the game
Anyone else who thinks the voice- acting is horrific? Or is it this bad on purpose, to give it this old skool superhero action-flick feel...
Was hyped until the admitted they pulled an AC Unity.
Looks amazing and I can't wait for this. What a way to end
@Gamer83 What did they admit?
They said they were 'aiming for graphical parity' across all platforms. The way I interpret that is the PS4 version will be held back, just like Assassin's Creed Unity was, to match the Xbox One since it never works the other way around. Don't know if it's laziness, or MS' $$$, but it sucks either way.
Darn that looks sick.
Who's the butt ugly metal guy?
