The newest teaser for Batman: Arkham Knight makes one thing clear: The Dark Knight won’t be going solo this time.
The latest teaser for Batman: Arkham Knight focuses on Batman’s allies and shows a bunch of co-op attacks that Bruce Wayne’s masked alter ego can pull off with Robin and Nightwing. From the sounds of it, players will be able to switch between the three superheroes—and maybe others—during combat.
Says Warner Bros. in a press release:
For the first time ever, watch Batman: Arkham Knight’s exciting new “Dual Play” feature in action, which will allow players to seamlessly switch between The Dark Knight and his allies including Robin, Nightwing, and Catwoman in FreeFlow Combat.
And sure seems like that trailer is teasing a Batman death pretty hard, doesn’t it? Narration in the latter part is by Azrael, who took over for a critically injured Batman in the comic book continuity. Nightwing did the same when Batman was presumed dead a few years ago. Killing off Batman would be a ballsy way for Rocksteady to end this trilogy. We’ll see when Arkham Knight comes out in June.
