Batman: Arkham Knight will takes place one year following the events of Arkham City, as Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city he is sworn to protect when The Scarecrow returns to unite an impressive roster of super villains to destroy The Dark Knight forever.

Classic Batman series characters such as Penguin, Two-Face, Harley Quinn and many more will be featured including the all-new character, The Arkham Knight.

For the first time in the series, the Batmobile will be a core element of the game with an entire new area of Gotham City to explore.

Originally scheduled for launch in October 2014 when it was first announced, the title was recently delayed until 2015.

It will now launch on June 2nd for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
