A fan of the Batman: Arkham games? Did Arkham Origins leave you a little flat? Never fear, Rocksteady is back with the end to the true trilogy (prequels don't count, damn it!). Batman: Arkham Knight's reveal/cinematic trailer just dropped, and boy, is it beautiful!
So there's a lot that this trailer sets up. The appearance of the new and improved batmobile is no accident. The Gotham City in this game is going to be larger than ever, and to get around you'll get to employ the most notorious of bat-vehicles.
The rogue's gallery for the game will featured Scarecrow as the Big Bad, threatening a plan that will be familiar to anyone who as seen Batman Begins (perhaps explaining the Christopher Nolan look of the batmobile). Of course, it wouldn't be an Arkham game without a truly massive rogue's gallery, so we will also face Penguin, Two-Face, and Harley Quinn among I am sure other familiar faces. Apparently, as a pre-order bonus, we will get to play as Harley, I assume in a similar fashion to Catwoman in Arkham City.
Batman: Arkham Knight is slated to launch worldwide October 14 this year. Considering the use of Scarecrow, I can't help but think it's a missed opportunity to not delay the game until October 31.
