The Batman “Arkham” games have proven pretty popular for Warner Bros., so it’s probably no surprise that they’re already gearing up yet another title, this time “Batman: Arkham Knight.” If I didn’t know better, I would swear from the looks of the trailer that this is some kind of Year One tale, i.e. the first time Batman suits up in the cape and cowl. But according to the synopsis below, it’s not. Weird.

Anyways, check out the trailer for “Batman: Arkham Knight” below. Supposedly this is the third and final in the “Arkham” series. Unless, of course, it makes a buttload of money, then you’ll probably see one or two…or a dozen more.

In the explosive finale to the Arkham series, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect. The Scarecrow returns to unite an impressive roster of super villains, including Penguin, Two-Face and Harley Quinn, to destroy The Dark Knight forever. Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady’s uniquely designed version of the Batmobile, which is drivable for the first time in the franchise. The addition of this legendary vehicle, combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Batman 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. Be The Batman.

Bats saves the city this October 14, 2014.

    No it takes place one year after Arkham City. I would hate if this was the end of the franchise, best superhero game by far.

    Well it is and it isn’t. Origins was done by a different company, but it’s the same universe, just earlier in Batman’s career. So they have said they may continue those, but not this part of the franchise. If you ask me it’s a great idea to end it here. And since they already have an Arkham animated flick they should continue the world/stories with those. Even tell some stories before Arkham Asylum’s events, but not as far back as Origins.

    This by far the best cinematic representation of the character that I have ever seen! A great mix of Nolan’s grounded cinematic interpertation with the fantastical essence of the comics and animated efforts. I’d love to see a full length feature produced by Rocksteady some day. If Zack Snyder’s take on the dark knight is half as cool as this I’d be happy.
