The 3rd and final installment of the highly acclaimed game “Arkham” series was announced yesterday and with it, came a very cool trailer.
The trailer, while cinematic in nature, is absolutely stunning. The character models look to be more realistic in proportions, we get a glimpse of Harley Quinn, The Penguin, Two-Face and…THE FREAKING BATMOBILE! Yes, this time around, the Batmobile..or maybe Tumbler(it looks very reminiscent of the Nolan Tumbler) is in fact a drive-able vehicle. Rocksteady didn’t release a concrete release date but it is confirmed to be hitting XBox One, PS4 and PCs sometime in 2014.
