Last month, Warner Bros. announced a special downloadable content (DLC) pack for the hot new video game Batman: Arkham Knight, which allows fans to play as Michael Keaton's Batman, along with the 1989 Batmobile. The DLC won't be available until next week, but Arkham Insider has our first look at gameplay footage with the iconic Batmobile in action. What isn't known at this time is if these skins will be usable in the game's story mode.
Batman: Arkham Knight brings the award-winning Arkham trilogy from Rocksteady Studios to its epic conclusion. Developed exclusively for New-Gen platforms, Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady's uniquely designed version of the Batmobile. The highly anticipated addition of this legendary vehicle, combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Arkham series, offers gamers the ultimate and complete Batman experience as they tear through the streets and soar across the skyline of the entirety of Gotham City.
In this explosive finale, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city that he is sworn to protect, as Scarecrow returns to unite the super criminals of Gotham and destroy the Batman forever. This new video shows the Batmobile racing through a new track that appears to be inspired not only by the 1989 Batman movie, but also Tim Burton's 1992 follow-up Batman Returns. Scenes from these movies featured in the game include The Joker's (Jack Nicholson) iconic parade and Penguin's (Danny DeVito) lair.
The video reveals just one of the two new tracks that will be available in this DLC, so fans will have to wait and see what the second track has to offer. It is also revealed that the 1989 version of the Batmobile "handles" much differently than the other vehicles in this game. Due to its design, the 1989 Batmobile is much lighter, and this new track has plenty of nasty corners for the players to maneuver through. We also get to see footage from the new Robin AR combat challenge, where the young Teen Titan is pitted against a wide assortment of brutal enemies.
The 1989 Batmobile DLC will be available for players next week, with those who have a season pass getting the first chance to download it. Are you looking forward to playing as the 1989 version of Batman in Batman: Arkham Knight? Let us know what you think after checking out this extensive 10-minute video.
