Cool Videos: Batman: Arkham Knight announce trailer is pretty awesome

03.04.2014

While we still have a couple of years before we see a live action Batman on the big screen in Zack Snyder's BATMAN VS SUPERMAN, there's still a few ways to enjoy the exploits of The Dark Knight until then, one of them being through video games, particularly the Arkham City franchise from Rocksteady Games. The final chapter in the franchise, Batman: Arkham Knight has revealed its announce trailer today, which features a four-minute long cinematic trailer that not only highlights another solid entry in the game franchise, but teases the potential of what a new live-action Batman could look like. For me, that's always the coolest thing about the cinematic trailers and this one certainly hits the sweet spot.

Check it out:

Here's the official game description:

"In the explosive finale to the Arkham series, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect. The Scarecrow returns to unite an impressive roster of super villains, including Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, to destroy The Dark Knight forever.'

"Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady’s uniquely designed version of the Batmobile, which is drivable for the first time in the franchise. The addition of this legendary vehicle, combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Batman Arkham series, offers gamers the ultimate and complete Batman experience as they tear through the streets and soar across the skyline of the entirety of Gotham City.'

"Be The Batman."

Batman: Arkham Knight is scheduled for release later this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. BATMAN VS SUPERMAN hits theaters on May 6, 2015.

I think we all have to remember that the film that immediately preceded Batman Begins was Batman and Robin, so the Nolan trilogy had to have the fantastical elements stripped from it as much as possible to redeem the franchise. And even then, the Nolan films are not "realistic" per se - there's still a cult of ninja assassins, microwave emitter and sonar imaging James Bond-like gadgets, a DA with half his face burned off...it's just more grounded, and it had to be.

the trailer shows a sleeker, more agile batman. because he's just not the world's greatest detective, he's one of the best martial artists around. christian bale is a great actor and i know he can do kickass martial arts (equilibrium springs to mind) but the suit makes him look slow and unwieldy. and i hate his gargly voice. next time i see batman onscreen, i want to see a suit that will allow batman to really move and see him kick serious ass. that is all.

A lot of people are really excited that Rocksteady is back but from the scope of this trailer and the intended release date (Oct. 14 2014) it's pretty obvious they never left.

Dishing out a sequel/prequel to another developer while they were cooking up a next gen title seems about right though.

Really loving the complaints about how it was the new dev's fault. The problem isn't that Origins was repetitive, the whole series has been repetitive. Free flow needs some serious tweaks, or this entry will feel just as canned, Batmobile or not. Take away the grapple flight from Asylum to City (and change in size, scope) and it's all been the same.

I've loved this series, and my problems with Origins were more b/c of the combat getting stale and a shoddy story. Rocksteady can't fix it all

I would be way more interested in a series of films/tv show in the style of these games, instead of Gotham or Batman vs. Superman. Sigh, one can only dream.

That does look very impressive; glad Rocksteady is back on board. The style of the Arkham games works so well because it seems to be a combination of Batman The Animated Series and the Nolan movies in just the right measures. It is dark, but it also embraces the fantastical elements of the Batman mythos and it's a very stylish world.

SPOILER ALERT:
The only gripe I have is that after the events of Arkham City it doesn't look like Joker will be in this one. I REALLY hoped his death was just a trick, and he would show up again. Out of all Gotham City's villians I think the Joker is the best. He just seems to have a special bond with Batman that doesn't seem to exist with the other villians. Maybe it's just because Mark Hamill does such a GREAT job

Nope.

After the dump that WB took called Origins, I will be weary of the next Arkham game. I mean seriously, they really fucked up and it would take Rocksteady scrapping every change WB made to their series for me to return.

This looks pretty damn sweet. Arkham Originals was appalling, just a rehash of the other two but this... this is a whole new onion.

Yes! Rocksteady is Back! I didn't like Arkham Origins since it was a repeat of Arkham City, and I hope this one is a lot different since Rocksteady is back.

I guess you want all halo games on the original xbox. All the future uncharteds on ps3. A new generation has started. Keep up. No point having it on old systems and holding back the potential of the new ones.

I skipped out on Origins since I heard it was pretty mediocre. But I'm definitely getting this since the original team is back behind the helm.

I would get this if it was financially feasible for me, but I'd have to buy a playstation 4, (which will probably still be between 350-400 bucks at that time) and a 60 dollar game. That's a total somewhere between 410 and 460 bucks. Yeah, fuck that.

WOW

Was there ever any doubt this would be anything short of amazing?

Absolutely epic and chilling monologue by Thomas Wayne.

Excellent trailer. Has me thinking about Ben Afflecks Batman and how it gonna look. After seeing this and the costume, it reminds me of future Wolverines costume in the promo pics of Xmen DoFP. I wonder if the new batsuit will look similar to that.

Absolutely stunning! Finally a true sequel to the perfection that was Arkham City.

Please please let there be Damian In here as Robin I would even settle for him as DLC.

This is the only game series I get stoked for and I can't fucking wait now that Rocksteady is back in. Obviously they were working on this in secret while "Origins" was being released by WB. That spot is breathtaking. I'm so excited that I now know that this is the game that will have me upgrading to the PS4. Long live Batman.

HOT DAMN

That is about the best CGI I've ever seen for a video game. Though 'Origins' was pretty weak, this trailer gives me hope for 'Knight.' Here's my $60.
