Batman Arkham Knight in-game screens show more of the new bad guy

I know what you’re thinking: these are bullshots. Having seen¬†Batman Arkham Knight in action however I can clarify this is what I saw. I won’t tell you what I said when I realised director Sefton Hill was actually playing the game and it wasn’t a cut scene but it involved bad words.

Batman Arkham Knight in-game screens

The ‘third game in Rocksteady‘s trilogy’, the studio neatly sidestepping Warner Montreal’s Origins, sees Batman apparently at the height of his powers and dealing with a city-wide evacuation following a Scarecrow attack threat. The big new feature this time around is the drivable Batmobile. The streets have been widened in-game to accommodate it and plus Bat’s tackling similarly mobile goons in what looks a lot like Burnout with missiles. This is a good thing.

The Arkham Knight is the ‘Batman with a gun’ style character you see here and while his origins and motives are unknown (he’s a custom character created specifically by Rocksteady) the demo I saw apparently finishes with him executing Batman with a shot to the head.
