Scarecrow at the Helm Of Gotham in New Arkham Knight Trailer
Batman: Arkham Knight is the finale in the Batman Trilogy, marking the return of RockSteady Studios. Today, the game has been given a brand new trailer titled ‘Gotham is Mine’. The trailer primarily focuses on Gotham’s nefarious thugs and their plans for the city. It sets a rather dark and gritty tone for the game, with Scarecrow being the Dark Knight’s nemesis this time, voice acted by veteran actor Kevin Conroy.
The new trailer does a fairly good job setting up the premise for the game, showing some snippets of gameplay in the process. Gotham City, as expected, is in a turmoil, overrun with nefarious thugs while Batman’s worst foes are running the show, and are conspiring over Batman’s utter destruction. Scarecrow just isn’t satisfied with killing Batman, he wants to annihilate him in every way possible.
We also get to see Poison Ivy, The Penguin, the Riddler, Harley Quinn and Firefly, though for the most part, the trailer was all about Scarecrow. The game has been rated M, implying we may have some really intense moments in the game.

I’m not blind to the fact that [the M rating] does mean some fans will miss out… I don’t want to be oblivious to that fact. It would have been wrong to water down the game and deliver a story we didn’t believe in to keep the game ‘mass market’ or enable it for more people. We feel that’s the wrong way to go about it. We said we love the story and we don’t want to jeopardize that.
Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Asylum got a lot of gamers into Batman lore, and it’s been one hell of a ride from there. This one looks quite promising as well. Rounding up the Rocksteady Batman: Arkham trilogy. Arkham Knight launches worldwide on June 2 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

In addition, some keen eyed viewers noticed some cryptic codes popping up in the trailer. A Reddit user has apparently cracked the code, which reveals three different set of character bios for Ivy, Scarecrow and Harley Quinn. These codes can be punched in the game’s official website for access to bios. We tried it out though nothing happened. Do let us know if the codes worked for you guys.
