First Arkham City Gameplay Trailer

The
latest trailer for
Batman:
Arkham City
features
the first footage of actual in-game action and shows off a few of the
Dark Knight’s new moves. The trailer also reveals a few new faces in
the game franchise, as they appear in the story, and includes a few
recycled ones as well. It’s looking like a lot of what made
Arkham
Asylum

great will be making a return for
Arkham
City.
Players should expect more of the same intense action alongside a
richer story. The game will act as a sequel to 2009’s title, but this
time the experience will be more open-ended—and the combat more
refined. The brawling and solid stealth mechanic that appeared before
will undoubtedly carry over and the open-world environment should
prove superior to the semi-linear structure of the predecessor.

What
this new trailer really showcases best is the same grim atmosphere
that appeared in the previous title; the unruly inhabitants who
reside within. This time, an entire urban sprawl has been taken over
by escaped inmates from the asylum and other regions of the city.
These thugs, who seem to be immune to punishment, are running amok
and have turned the city into a wasteland. It is again up to the
world’s favorite caped vigilante to restore order to the chaos and
stop the man responsible for the turmoil. It’s quite obvious that
Hugo Strange will be one of the core villains this time around, with
help from some familiar foes, and that Batman will have some help as
well.
Arkham City
is still under heavy development buy more information on the game’s
story and characters is sure to surface soon. The game is slated for
release on October 18th.
