Batman: Arkham Knight Announced
Following an earlier tease on an official Batman Facebook page, Batman: Arkham Knight, Rocksteady Games’ return to the series, has been announced today.
The aforementioned tease took place on the Batman: Hush Facebook page run by Warner Bros., the owner of DC Comics and publisher of the Batman: Arkham games. A computer generated image of Batman villain, Hush accompanied the post, saying, “Remember a little appearance by somebody in Arkham City? Well things [might get] more interesting next month.” This post has since been removed from the page. (Source)
While Hush didn’t appear in the trailer, we are shown to a car chase and firefight between Two-Face’s gang and the Gotham police force, with the Dark Knight crashing the party in his Nolanverse-inspired Batmobile. This action is accompanied by the disembodied voice of Thomas Wayne reading his last will and testament for his son, Bruce.
The trailer also has appearances by Harley Quinn, the Penguin, as well as an ominous voice by an unspecified villain who can be assumed to be the main antagonist.
Check out the trailer above, and expect Batman: Arkham Knight to come out later this year on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
