Batman Arkham Knight Teaser Shows Red Hood Gameplay

Red Hood definitely wouldn't appreciate the tone of his own trailer though.

28 Comments

A new teaser for Batman: Arkham Knight providing a brief glimpse at Red Hood has been released.

The video, which you can watch below, promotes the GameStop pre-order exclusive Red Hood Story Pack, but also features Red Hood in action.

Red Hood is one of the many playable characters from the game. Along with him, players will be able to swap to Nightwing, Robin, and Catwoman to execute tag-team manoeuvres in combat.

The gameplay clip shows the Dark Knight's former protégé dispensing his own brand of ruthless, not Bat-sanctioned, justice out to some of Gotham's unsavoury characters.

As Red Hood, players will access to his arsenal of weapons, which include firearms and a grappling hook, along with his trusty fists, knees, and elbows.

Originally scheduled to launch in 2014, the Batman Arkham Knight release date has been confirmed as June 23. Recently, Rocksteady announced the game's voice cast, which includes Breaking Bad andLord of the Rings veterans

GameSpot recently got hands-on with the game, to see more of the game and hear what we thought of combat, the Batmobile, Riddler's role and more, watch our Batman: Arkham Knight gameplay analysis.

Buy it on PC and mods will allow you to play as any of these DLC characters in free roam. This also goes for the previous Arkham titles released on PC.

So.. I get to kill people as Red Hood right? that was my biggest complaint about playing challenges as Deathstroke in Origins. You couldn't kill people while playing as him.

Am I the only one who really doesn't give a shit, and wants to play the game no matter what DLC I miss out on? I've always got the internet and if im that desperate ill by the DLC. I played arkham origins throughout and enjoyed the game without the DLC, and im sure i'll do the same with this one. just as I did with arkham city.

@insomniac: Yeah the Witcher 3 can give you a lot of game time. I would wait also, but I have friends who will be playing right away and I want to jump on with them.

@BabeNewelll: When we all stop buying games, and are asked why, then say these are the reasons why, they will stop. But let's be real none of us will band together to show power like that so why would the industry stop?

Funny how this kind of promotion has the opposite effect on me. Instead of me rushing out the door to preorder, it makes waiting for the full version to go on sale seem like the better option. Batman Arkham Knight, see you in a year or so for about $5.00.

Wow they are carving off content like meat from a tender roast lamb.


Now the game undoubtedly seems huge, but there's so much pre-order BS that it will be impossible not to feel like you're missing almost half the game when it comes out.

WB is coming off as really desperate. I wonder if Arkham Knight pre sales are not very good?

@Marky360: They don't hate the game, they hate the greedy business practices tied to the game.

@DamnILoveGames@Marky360: This.


The game would have sold an absolute boatload without all of the cynical and divisive preorder nonsense they've coated it in. Instead, I've seen lots of people saying they'll wait for the inevitable GOTY edition (me included, and I loved Asylum and City).

@johnnyspectre: I can't say I blame you. I've always found pre-order exclusives rather distasteful as it is, but making it impossible to own everything on the disc without buying multiple copies is a filthy practice, and once again goes to show what greedy beggars Warner Bros. are.

I can't stand how greedy WB is especially with Rocksteady's Batman series which is one of the best.
