Batman: Arkham Knight trailer shows off first gameplay

Rocksteady has debuted the first gameplay trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight. Though the snippets of gameplay are brief, it's impressive.


Batman: Arkham Knight was gorgeous when we saw it in March, but so far fans have only been able to see stills from Rocksteady's finale to the Arkhamverse trilogy. A new gameplay trailer shows off footage for the first time, albeit briefly, and it lives up to expectations.

The vast majority of the trailer is cutscenes, but keep in mind for this installment Rocksteady was able to render all the cutscenes in-engine. When we do get a look at the game in action, it's very much an Arkham game--just much prettier. Check it out.

      Might just be me, but i think they might have a hard time getting people excited about this game. Where its Rocksteady or not, this is the forth Batman game, meanwhile you have games like Watch Dogs, Inquisition, The Order, Deep Down, Destiny, Call of Duty and whatever else hasn't even been announced that may excite gamers a hell of a lot more than a 4th romp through Gotham.
      Even looking at this trailer did less to excite me than previously.

        Did you really just bring up CoD in a post that is pointedly about this being the 4th Batman game?

          not only that, he's talking about people being worn out by "yet another" Batman game, but excited for more CoD!

        I dunno I think the new consoles have so few games currently that any game let alone a sequel to beloved games starring BATMAN coming out on them should garner some interest.

      All of this talk of "fear" reminds me of the Scarecrow cryptographic sequencer messages you can find in Arkham city.

        And it should; At least at the beginning this is a Scarecrow plot.

          Looking over the messages again here are some speculations:

          The disease might be originated from or spread through roaches. This is found from the Scarecrow secret boat on AC. The boat is filled with live roaches crawling around in glass terrariums. There is a manifest of "live insects for medical examination". There is also a readable note indicating that the roaches were delivered to gotham from Mr. Fine, a professional gopher of the underworld who arranges deliveries and logistics to super villains. This was through connections of Falcone who is the Gotham mob king pin. So we'll likely run into a mob faction in AK.

      That armor looks more like Batman, unlike the new Ben Affleck Batman. Batman uses technology in it's favor, not tight armours to remark his muscles and veins.

      The one in this game is bulkier that the previous one, but it seems its made to not compromise mobility too.

      Not to mention the Batman logo for the movie.....
