Batman: Arkham Knight screenshots show off new enemy

A fresh batch of Batman: Arkham Knight screenshots give us a first look at the brand new villain.

Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment has provided fans with a new set Arkham Knight screens that finally give us a look at the eponymous Arkham Knight, who is the main protagonist in the final entry in the Arkham series.

This game will be the first time Arkham Knight is introduced to the game’s Gotham City universe and has been created by Geoff Johns, writer of Aquaman, Justice League and Green Lantern.

He is a militarised, rougher and definitely more extreme version of Batman, who is said to “really challenge Batman to go head to head with him in lots of different ways.”

The screens also show off the next-gen version of Gotham City, Batman at the peak of his powers and fitness and of course, the Batmobile.

Thanks to a larger version of Gotham City with wider streets, you’ll be able to career around in the Batmobile for the first time in Batman: Arkham City.

“Batman: Arkham Knight is the pinnacle of our hugely successful franchise and we are giving players the most expansive, impressive title in the series,” said Martin Tremblay, President of Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment at launch. “We’re excited to be developing the game for next-gen platforms, which has allowed us to bring to life the design elements that we envisioned from the beginning such as the Batmobile and how it augments Batman’s abilities, to the fully detailed and realised Gotham City.”

Available sometime this year, Batman: Arkham Knight will launch on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
