Rocksteady Studios' upcoming video game, Batman: Arkham Knight has showed off some new features in its trailer. Sony announced new features at E3 2014 that includes PlayStation 4 exclusives, Scarecrow missions and playable Batmobile.
The five minutes video trailer starts with close ups of Batman's Armor as he dress up and a voice tells him that one of his rivals, The Penguin has been sighted with weapons cache and Batman darts off. Batman can been seen diving from his building and later gliding his way through the Gotham City and landing on a road, immediately his Batmobile too is ready for action. Racing though the roads of the city, we can see that the suspensions of the car move independently, the change in the car's gears change the fire in the afterburner in the engine exhaust.
Also visible in the trailer is the ability of Batmobile to do ski-jumps and tackle various terrain including climbing steps. Some close-ups also reveal the bulletproof armor of the vehicle. We can also see how this vehicle can get into "battle mode" by strafing side to side.
It also shows some of the weapons in Batmobile especially the Vulcan Gun (this has armor piercing incendiary and is mainly used as an anti-tank weapon or for surface-to-air fire). He gets a green on engaging the targets and a crossbow like marking on the screen helps in directing the fire on enemy tanks. The video also shows the deployment of Missile Barrage (this is fitted with laser and GPS guidance system).
The trailer shows Batmobile's ability to switch to super-fast mode and also allows Batman to eject when he wants, on the go. Batman then glides through the space and reaches the troubled area. After fist-punching some thugs from Penguin's gang, he comes straight to face his rival. When he attacks him, the video just freezes and Scarecrow appears from nowhere.
"How many more bones would you crush. How many lives will you destroy in pursuit of what you call justice? You are the product of everything you fear: violence, darkness, helplessness," says Scarecrow.
It was revealed by Andrew House, president and group chief executive officer of Sony Computer Entertainment America that the Scarecrow nightmare missions will only be available on PlayStation 4.
Batman: Arkham Knight was delayed to 2015 as the team required more time for release. It will be rolling out for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
