The pre-E3 surprises keep rolling out. Rocksteady recently put out a trailer showing Gotham’s favorite feline burglar taking it to the streets. Not just in cutscenes, but in fully playable fashion. Catwoman’s method of navigation and combat is on display here. It’ll be interesting to see how her style of gameplay will fit into the scheme of the final game. Is there anything sexier than a woman who can kick your ass? No. Batman: Arkham City is set for release on October 18th for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Check out the brutal new trailer below.
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.
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.
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.
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.
