A new TV ad for Batman: Arkham Knight has been released, now that the game's launch is finally drawing close.
The commercial, which you can watch below, features new music from Muse. The song in the background is titled "Mercy", which comes from the band's recently released 7th studio album, Drones. You can listen to Drones on Spotify now.
Development delays have pushed the game back well beyond its originally intended release date, but the game is finally set to launch on June 23 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Hopefully the extra time in development gave Rocksteady Studios a chance to polish the game to a level the team feels comfortable with--it will be the last title in the series developed by Rocksteady, its creator.
Rocksteady began the series in 2009 with Batman: Arkham Asylum. The games feature free-roam gameplay in open city environments, allowing Batman to glide, climb, and fight through streets and rooftops. Rocksteady followed up the first title with Arkham City in 2011, and handed over development of the next title, 2013's Arkham: Origins, to Warner Bros Montreal.
Origins received less acclaim than its predecessors (more an incremental move forward than anything evolutionary), and Rocksteady has returned to the series for Knight, its final game. Knight will introduce a drivable Batmobile for the first time, which features in the video below and allows Batman to travel through the city than ever before.
