Rocksteady's Arkham games have been some of the best games I have ever played. From the graphics, story, and the voice acting (Kevin Conroy!), these games have immersed us into the Batman universe. It has done a superb job of making us feel like we could take on the criminal underworld of Gotham City.

Batman: Arkham Knight is the newest installment in the franchise and it looks as if it will not disappoint. At E3 this year we got to see a sneak peak at the gameplay of the Batmobile, the newest weapon in Batman's arsenal and the first time we as gamer's will be able to control this beloved vehicle.

As the demo begins we see Batman changing into his evening wear as the Batsuit mechanically attaches to him similar to how Iron Man's suit of armor attaches to him. We see the breast plate attach with different segments to reveal the bat symbol and we see that it allows him room for movement. It is just an all around bad ass scene. 

When you get your first glimpse of the Batmobile in the footage you see it screeching around the corner as Batman dives to the ground and jumps into his ride. It then takes off like a (no pun intended) bat out of hell with screeching tires revving engines and flaming exhaust. You see it driving through the streets of Gotham up stairs and through small walls, there are moving parts all over the vehicle as you see it shifting and turning. The coolest part of the demo is when the Batmobile turns into battle mode.

Battle mode is an all out assault vehicle with machine guns cannons and rocket launchers which take out the Penguin's men with ease. 

Next, we see the Batmobile once again, screech through the streets as Batman ejects through the top escape hatch and glides through the air just above the streets.

This game looks incredible and now thanks to Rocksteady, I have to get an X-Box One, like yesterday (seriously can anyone loan me $400!?). 

What do you guys think of this game? Let us know in the comments.
