Batman Arkham Knight

Rocksteady Studios has put out Part Two of the three part Ace Chemicals Infiltration gameplay video series for their upcoming title ‘Batman: Arkham Knight.’

The newest video shows an in-engine cut scene of sorts featuring an intense vehicle fight between the Batmobile and several armored tanks. In comparison to Part One of the gameplay video series, not much is shown in the way of actual gameplay this time around, but there are certainly a lot of explosions.

‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ is the newest entry in the ‘Arkham’ series by Rocksteady Studios. The game takes place one year after the conclusion of ‘Batman: Arkham City’ and puts players in the role of Batman as he takes on the famous Scarecrow, who threatens to unite all of Gotham City’s criminals under a plot to finally kill the caped crusader on Halloween night. However, Scarecrow and Gotham City’s laundry list of villains aren’t the only threat that Batman has to face. For a new villain named Arkham Knight and his militia of henchmen have also stepped up to the plate to make a mess of things as well.

The newest ‘Arkham’ entry is set to feature a number of new improvements to the series’ gameplay formula. For starters, one of the biggest additions is the Batmobile, which players will be able to drive around the open-world map of Gotham City. Batman can also now use his cape to glide all around the city for longer more sustained flights, gadgets can now be used while flying and combat has received upgrades in the form of environmental attacks. From what has been announced, these are only a handful of the features that Rocksteady is promising to bring into ‘Batman: Arkham Knight.’

Originally intended for a release on October 14 of this year, ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ was delayed until June 2, 2015 in order to ensure the game’s quality was up to part with previous releases in the series. According to a statement to Gamespot back in June by Rocksteady marketing game manager Guy Perkins, he states “If we didn’t give the team more time to do it, then we would be releasing something that we weren’t happy with. We want to make sure we’re absolutely nailing it 100%.”

‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ is scheduled to release on June 2, 2015 for PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
