Arkham Knight: Full Trailer and Release Date: Oct 14th, 2014

     Rocksteady has done it again.  As I guessed this sequel was being worked on long ago.  Well, this trailer is 4 minutes of amazingness.  The graphics are downright stunning.

     If the trailer is giving any anvil-sized hints, we'll be getting to use the Batmobile finally.  We get what I believe to be Scarecrow starting narration, and then Bruce's father Thomas Wayne.  We also get to see Penguin giving weapons to Two-Face, and Harley Quinn doing her own thing.  The characters look, oddly enough, a bit younger than the ones from Arkham City.  Strangely, so does Bruce Wayne.  I wonder if we were seeing flashback sections here?  No telling really, when we heard there was to be a Silver Age Batman game, we guessed it was Origins, but what if it wasn't? (Just a thought for you)

     More Scarecrow is a great thing.  His segments in Asylum were the best parts of that game, and he had plenty of Easter Eggs in City- so it makes sense that he'd be back, and better than ever.

     As a nice preorder bonus, you get to play as Harley Quinn.

     Update: Playstation Mag UK has these listed as game info:
Be a part of the explosive Finale in the Batman Arkham Series in Batman Arkham Knight. 
Batman Arkham Knight is “Set after the events of Arkham City, Batman: Arkham Knight may just end the Dark Knight’s journey”. 
Take to the rooftops and now – the roads of Gotham as for the first time the iconic Batmobile becomes driveable.
