The game is the fourth entry in the action-adventure series starring the Caped Crusader and is the first to appear on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. The franchise kicked off on the previous generation systems with Batman: Arkham Asylum from developer Rocksteady. After sitting out of production of Batman: Arkham Origins, it's back in the driver's seat for the latest one.
Arkham Knight will put players directly in control of the redesigned, dune-buggy-like Batmobile that you see above. According to a preview in Game Informer, the car can transform between a standard Pursuit mode and Battle mode (as pictured) with a cannon and machine gun, which doesn't really seem "Batman'ish". It can also be remote controlled so players can swap between the Dark Knight and the vehicle to help with combat.
The game is scheduled for a 2015 release, but Rocksteady is promising more details about it during the E3 video game tradeshow from June 10-12. Watch a video of the latest Batmobile transforming between modes in the game.
