Be warned, the embedded video contains Batman: Arkham City story spoilers.

Rocksteady Studios on Friday released the latest Arkham Insider video, this one offering an in-depth look at Batman: Arkham Knight's new, Grand Theft Auto V-style Dual Play mode.

On display in the video is a fight sequence where Batman and Nightwing team up to take down a room of thugs. At any point, players can switch between the two heroes, keeping their combos and specials intact.

Rocksteady also explains that it had to increase the number of enemies in fight scenes to accomodate having two hero characters instead of just one. In addition to Nightwing, the Dark Knight will fight alongside Catwoman and Robin in other portions of the game, Rocksteady explained.

The video also features a spoiler-heavy Q&A portion, with Rocksteady answering questions about Arkham Knight's story mode, including sequences featuring The Riddler and more.

Originally scheduled to launch in 2014, the new Arkham Knight release date is June 23 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Recently, Rocksteady announced the game's voice cast, which includes Breaking Bad and Lord of the Rings veterans. Check out some Arkham Knight images in the gallery below.
