UPDATE: Next issue features Batman: Arkham Knight. Prepares 4 minute debut trailer for 10.00 AM Central Time. Set in new area of Gotham City 'far larger' than Arkham.
The Batmobile is a 'core element' of Arkham Knight with streets made much wider to accommodate the iconic vehicle that until now had only been briefly used as a set piece in the Arkham series.
Original story follows
Ahead of an official reveal by WB Games, retailer GAME has started taking pre-orders for Rocksteady's new game 'Batman: Arkham Knight'. It's billed as the "explosive finale" in the Arkham series.
According to the listing, we'll be facing off against Batman's "most notorious foes" as Scarecrow unites them. What's more interesting is the inclusion of the driveable Batmobile.
Harley Quinn is mentioned as a pre-order bonus by GAME. Actor Kevin Conroy had said he was voicing a new Batman game back in May 2013, but only Arkham origins was known then.
The online listings by the retailer have since been pulled down but not before a spam of print screens took place. It seems Arkham series creator Rocksteady wants to go out with a bang as they ramp up even more features with Arkham Knight. Let's hope we can upgrade our Batmobile just like our suit and abilities.
Batman will be facing 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."
It proceeded to mention "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."
Batman: Arkham Knight releases on PC, Xbox One and PS4 likely this year.
