Batman: Arkham Knight, All Who Follow You

Here’s a spot of advice: If you ever find yourself in need of swift rescue, best not phone the Bat. That guy takes aaaaages to do anything. Yes, in case you missed it last issue, Rocksteady has announced Arkham Knight has been delayed. Again. Thankfully, the latest setback only pushes the game’s release by three weeks, with Wayne’s ‘trilogy’-closer now set to hit PS4 on 23 June.

While you tap your watch waiting for the tardy hero, you can at least take solace in some fresh Gotham heroics. Recent footage captured in real-time on PS4 chronicles the Dark Knight saving GCPD keester in a demo that moves with real purpose and grace. The ‘Officer Down’ footage sees the Dark Knight chatting with Jim Gordon, indulging in a daring street chase courtesy of the Batmobile, dishing out all the beatings to a group of thugs and carrying out a bone-breaking interrogation. There’s no justice quite like ‘shattered wrist justice’.

All the brutal ligament damage aside, there’s a persuasive seamlessness to the action. Calling the Batmobile to your side is as simple as pressing a single button, combat still oozes from the screen with a muscular fluidity, and that trademark gliding looks even more free-flowing than ever. Bats may have kept us waiting, but we’re sure everything is going to be alright on this particular Knight.
