Well, it looks like we’re going to have to wait just a little bit longer for the next Batman title from Rocksteady, Batman: Arkham Knight. Originally slated for release June 2nd of this year, the game has been pushed back by Warner Bros. Interactive to June 23rd instead. That is a whole three week delay! It could be worse — at least it isn’t months later.
This bit of information came courtesy WB Interactive itself at the end of a brand new gameplay video for the title which, according to the disclaimer at the beginning, was recorded entirely on the PlayStation 4. Clocking in at a whopping seven and a half minutes, the video kicks off with the Caped Crusader meeting up with Jim Gordon, following up on a lead to track down the Scarecrow. We also see the Dark Knight effortlessly gliding through town and even engaging in a high speed Batmobile chase!
Check it out for yourself:
The action-packed video shows off a couple of the new tricks that Batman has up his sleeves. We get to see some swanky new grapnel gun tricks, as well as the Fear Takedown combat mechanic. From what’s been shown in this video and others we’ve previously reported on, driving around in the Batmobile looks like a lot of fun. There is indeed something super special about watching Batman launch himself into his famous vehicle. Let’s just hope it’s as fun to drive as it looks!
As for the delay, neither the publisher nor the developer have specifically mentioned the reason for the delay. Batman: Arkham Knight will be coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC this June 23, 2015.
