Batman: Arkham City Gameplay Trailer, Release Date Confirmed

The original Batman: Arkham Asylum was a surprise hit when it was released in 2009. It defied normal conventions of what a licensed game could be. It took players through a rich, story-driven  adventure that had fans aching for Rocksteady’s excellent marriage of stealth and action.

The environments certainly have personality

Rocksteady Studios snuck out a new gameplay trailer for their upcoming sequel; Batman: Arkham City. If you decide to wet your pants, now would be a good time. The talented crew at Rocksteady has greatly expanded the real estate you’ll be navigating in. The dark and dingy cityscape is there for you to explore and dish out justice however you see fit. This allows for countless approaches to your objectives and prey.

Players are no longer restricted to corridors and catacombs

The smooth as butter combat is back and better than ever. It’ll allow Batman to dispatch multiple foes silently and brutally. The newfound verticality will also let Batman take on foes from the air and vanish as quickly as he came. Rocksteady is still maintaining the crucial stealth aspect that made the first so great, however players can still get scrappy with thugs if they’re so inclined.

Batman never lost a game of "Mercy" because he shows none.

Returning characters like the iconic Joker and Harley Quinn will be returning to reprise their demented roles. Arkham City will also see some of Gotham’s other villains like the Riddler, Hugo Strange, Two-face, and Catwoman. It’s a very well rounded cast that is sure to please the hardest of the hardcore DC fans.

Batman: Arkham City is set to be released on the October 18th on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Check out the new gameplay trailer below courtesy of IGN.
