Batman: Arkham Knight keeps promising more and more bone-breaking Bat-goodness, and if you’re into that sort of thing, you’ll enjoy the seven minutes in gameplay heaven above.
Not that Arkham Knight looks remarkably different from the other two Arkham games, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. On display here: driving the Batmobile, which can become a tank and shoot other tanks (but those tanks don’t have people in them so it doesn’t break Bruce Wayne’s no-killing rule); and Poison Ivy, who seems to factor into Scarecrow’s larger plans somehow.
As far as story is concerned, we got a dose of Scarecrow in the video released during E3 2014, suggesting the villain might be a big part of this story the way the Joker has been central to the last two games.
Other than that, though, the new gameplay video hasn’t given us too many new insights into Arkham Knight, except that you’ll be able to transport passengers (or prisoners) in the Batmobile.
Hopefully that means you can kidnap thugs from all over the city and do things with them – like drop Penguin henchmen into Mr. Freeze’s house as a distraction. Or hell, it’d be cool if you could just grab Penguin and throw him at Mr. Freeze and watch the brawl.
You’ll probably only be able to deliver them to jail, though. Stupid Batman and his stupid justice.
Batman: Arkham Knight is due to hit store shelves on June 23.
