Vicious New Batman: Arkham Knight Gameplay Video

At some point during his life, a man comes to the realisation that he's never going to drive the Batmobile. It's usually just before his mum serves him a glass of milk and he goes back to working out just exactly how far his finger can go up his nose.

Crestfallen Bat-fans the world over are soon going to be able to realise this abandoned dream thanks to the latest instalment of Rocksteady Studio's hugely successful Batman series, Arkham Knight.

Along with an announcement that the game's launch has been pushed back to 23 June, the developer has just dropped a new eight-minute gameplay video to show off the polished goon-thumping that gamers can expect to dish out in Rocksteady's third title, along with an extended chase between Batman's formidable wheels and an ill-prepared escapee.

From breaking arms to power sliding round cobbled alleys, Batman: Arkham Knight is shaping up to be one very slick prospect.
