Fans of “Batman: Arkham Knight” can enjoy a lot of new videos before the game is released June 23. Nvidia has recently released a short clip featuring the Batmobile and Gameworks.
The trailer shows how the interactive smoke and fog works in the game, when Gameworks is in play. In the video, seen below, the overall effect completes the grimy and mysterious atmosphere in Gotham City.
Developer Rocksteady and Warner Bros. have also shown off two TV spots for “Batman: Arkham Knight.” Batman-news.com has compiled the TV spots, both of which feature some in-game and cut scenes, as well as the new soundtrack, "Mercy," by Muse.
The first thing fans notice is the introduction at the start of both videos. Commissioner Gordon is speaking: "This is how it happened," he says. "This is how the Batman died."
There have been previous hints of the Batman possibly dying in Rocksteady’s final take on the Arkham series. Even before, Amazon had reportedly teased the death of the Caped Crusader with a sighting of a statue that looks a lot like a memorial for Batman in the limited edition.
Now it does not help that the TV spot may actually be hinting at a possible death at the end of “Batman: Arkham Knight.” Whether or not the death is real, however, is another matter. A teaser such as this does not necessarily mean a death will play out. Batman has been left for dead several times, only to emerge at the end. But as Comicbook.com points out, this could hint at a grand struggle where Batman dying can be a possibility.
A new poster featuring the Penguin has also been spotted with just a week until the release of “Batman: Arkham Knight.” Flickering Myth has seen the new poster, featured in the link. It depicts a snarling Oswald Cobblepot, looking very menacing and ready for a brawl with the Dark Knight.
“Batman: Arkham Knight” is set to arrive for Sony PlayStation 4, Microsoft Xbox One and the PC. Notably, there have been reports of players already getting their hands on “Batman: Arkham Knight" as early as a week before the release date, but this can be attributed to select cases of early shipment.
