New Batman: Arkham Knight Images Reveal the Titular Villain and General Awesomeness

So far, Batman: Arkham Knight is looking pretty impressive.  Visually it’s unmatched (being a pure new-gen game) so far, and it’s coming from  a proven game developer.  All in all it’s a recipe for awesome, and gamers are understandably excited.  The name of the game, apparently stems from an all new character/villain being introduced called the Arkham Knight.  So far, Rocksteady isn’t spilling the beans about the guy, but obviously he looks like some sort of militarized verison of Batman. 

During their preview with GameInformer they only showed off a silhouette of the character, yet today they have new images showing him off completely.  There’s also some new images in general showing off Batman and the batmobile, and they look really swanky.

Batman: Arkham Knight is based on DC Comics’ core Batman license and will be available exclusively for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC.  The game is scheduled for release worldwide in 2014.

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.
