In the wake of the game’s most recent delay, Rocksteady has released the most complete look we’ve had at Batman: Arkham Knight’s gameplay so far. Clocking in at over seven minutes, the video seems to be completely unedited gameplay, straight from a PS4.
Showing off not only the classic brutal combat the series is known for, the trailer also includes a full car chase with the batmobile, a few new fight mechanics, like being able to punch someone while they try to grab you from behind, and extended conversations with Gordon and Oracle. As Batman flies through the city, we even get a quick piece of overheard dialogue about what Harley Quinn has been up to, or not been up to, in the wake of Arkham City.
Recently receiving an ‘M’ rating from the ESRB, Arkham Knight is said to be the darkest take on Batman in the series so far, a claim pretty well supported by the last scene of the trailer. Originally slated to come out last October, the game was delayed until June 2nd, then again this morning, was delayed until June 23rd.
