We're now weeks away from the Bat Signal being fired up on your PlayStation 4, and Warner Bros is dropping gameplay trailers like they're going out of fashion. This new one – 'Time to Go to War' – deployed a little earlier in the week, but slipped through the cracks here at Push Square Towers. As such, we've embedded it below for your belated viewing pleasure.
Captured using a PS4 console, this is essentially a showcase of all of the game's major features. We get a glimpse of the Dark Knight soaring through the streets of Gotham in search of Poison Ivy, before embroiling himself in some fisticuffs. He's then tasked with transporting the green fingered antagonist to the police – but takes out a few tanks along the way.
What more is there to say about this release? It's certainly looking slick at this almost-finished stage, and while we're yet to be convinced whether the car combat will fit, it's going to make a nice post-E3 palette cleanser, isn't it? Watch the video and then share some of your impressions in the comments section below.
Oh my.. I'm quite impressed. Gotta quickly finish The Witcher I suppose
@SilenceCZ You've still got a month!
@get2sammyb It's kinda hard to make time for everything. I'm in progress with Ether One and Splatoon, I've just finished MonsterBag, E3 is behind the doors, exams for college too and I still have to make money so I can buy tons of stuff at Gamescom!
Ah, it's hard to be a gamer..
I don't think they've taken this in the right direction. It was the intimacy, story and characters that made Arkham Asylum special. This open world stuff doesn't suit the Batman license IMO. It should still be solid because of the great combat, flying and detective stuff + the driving, but it won't be anything special like Arkham Asylum.
This has raised my interest levels looks like it could be a blast. Just wait for the reviews to roll in
@Wesker I completely agree Asylum was by far the better of the 2, the open world was just an excuse to make it look bigger and name check bad guys without really fleshing them out (I'm looking at you Mr Freeze). This looks more like city unfortunately with its largely lifeless open world and the tank battles already look dull and I suppose there'll be another Donkey Kongesque riddler trophy hunt. On the plus side the combat looks as flawless as ever and the scarecrow looks pretty menacing, I just wish modern games developers realise that bigger doesn't necessarily mean better. Don't get me wrong I'm looking forward to it, I just wish they'd stayed closer to the original
Yep, I want this game.
@Wesker @carlos82 I completely agree with you guys. Asylum was just oozing with atmosphere. City was still great, but it just felt sterile compared to the awesomeness that was Asylum. I also think the batmobile stuff seems kind of lame. Oh well, I'm still getting it.
