Looks good it does have a hint of an Assassins Creed vibe.

Meh, no reason to have it since you can essentially fly anywhere you want with the grapple hook/cape mechanics.

Who's to say it's not in the game? They were talking about it ages ago

Pretty cool trailer. I'm happy that the Riddler will actually be in it, as he won't be in the next Batman movie.

Oh, and I really didn't expect to hear The Heavy in a video game trailer, more so in one for Batman...

Oh wow, you can grab people by zip-lining now (instead of a takedown) like in Batman Begins?!

Maybe there's an interrogation thing like Splinter Cell now? :D

Wow. What a trailer.

Fair play Rocksteady, you've got talent alright.

Too bad it's using that crappy UE3... [/sarcasm]

while this looks good and quite unique because they don't base their design on the nolan-films i wish that one day a game based on the tim burton version will come out. with michael keaton lending his appearance and voice to batman and jack nicholson to the joker along with the best batmobile ever. i know this is very probably not going to happen.

GOTY?

Gears and Uncharted have a huge fight on their hands with this i reckon.

Read that you have to get information out of bad guys at times.

trailer was shit, just didnt look much like the last game... i'm sure it'll be good, but this trailer was not. please dont turn this into a typical open world super-hero game.

Actually, it's not really open world. The whole game is only 5 times bigger than original BAA which would be insanely small for an open world game. It's just that the playground is a city district instead of a huge asylum. As for the trailer, it had a lot of BAA elements from some of the architecture to most of the battles. The only really different thing was the bigger number of onscreen enemies and a new dive maneuver.

How exactly was this trailer like GTA4, Assassin's Creed or even Prototype!? (All forms of open world games?).

About the game

    droezelke So weird, my store doesn't have pre-orders yet, but all day 1 editions are sold out.... (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog even rare, as shitty as they've become have so many IP's they can draw from as pure fan service, that would boost the brand a ton. a new conker? a new perfect dark? a new banjo (a real one)? (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i miss the days when xbox had exclusives like doom 3. riddick. voodoo vince. blood wake. jade empire, KOTOR, morrowind, galleon, jet set radio, republic commando... fuck it, even blinx the cat. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog they need fresh blood so to speak. and they need to support them, not send them out to die. and not turn their back on them entirely just because they sold .5 million less than their expectations. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but they can't do that by releasing more versions of the same game. uncharted isn't going to sell a PS4 to someone who hates uncharted. but gravity rush might? maybe last guardian? maybe spiderman? (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog right now i think it's safe to say MS has fully catered to their own fanbase. but now they need to draw in new players to increase their userbase. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog generally though they need more studio's making various titles of various budgets instead of 3 studio's making the same 3 AAA games over and over again. (3 Hours ago)
