It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Rocksteady’s upcoming action-adventure game “Batman: Arkham Knight,” but on Monday, the London-based video game developer released a new trailer for the title, along with a description of one of the game’s new features – Dual Play.
"For the first time ever, watch Batman: Arkham Knight’s exciting new 'Dual Play' feature in action, which will allow players to seamlessly switch between The Dark Knight and his allies including Robin, Nightwing, and Catwoman in FreeFlow Combat."
“Arkham Knight” will reach the Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 on June 23. Earlier this month, Sony revealed a special edition PlayStation 4 console that will feature custom artwork dedicated to the popular action-adventure series.
“Batman: Arkham Knight” will be the fourth game and final installment in the “Arkham” series, which kicked off with “Batman: Arkham Asylum” in 2009. “Arkham Knight” originally was scheduled for release last October, but it was rumored the game was only 40 percent finished in May of 2014. The game’s delayed release was confirmed in early June.
“Arkham Knight” will be the first game in the series that will allow users to drive the Batmobile. Developer Rocksteady created the Batmobile to be nearly invincible -- it will have the ability to perform burnouts, jumps and boosts -- while simultaneously being bulletproof. The setting of “Arkham Knight” will be five times bigger than “Arkham City” (the second game in the series) and 20 times larger than “Arkham Asylum.”
