Batman: Arkham Knight is the next Batman game

The fourth game in the Arkham series has been unveiled via the cover of this month's Game Informer magazine.

Developed by Asylum and City creators Rocksteady, Knight is the final Arkham game and is set after the events of 2011’s City.

Last year’s Warner Montreal-developer Arkham Origins was a prequel, remember.

The Batmobile is a big star this time and is described as being a “core element” of the gameplay, all of which takes place in a brand new Gotham City that is “far larger” than Arkham City, with wider car-friendly streets.

The game includes mechanics that allow for a smooth transition between gliding, grappling and driving.

Scarecrow, Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn are all confirmed.

Batman: Arkham Knight will be released this year and is due out on PS4, Xbox One and PC – no current-gen or Wii U versions are planned.

Here's a trailer and the first art:
