New Batman: Arkham City gameplay footage picks up where last video left off

Last week’s video featuring 12 minutes of gameplay from Batman: Arkham City left us all extremely excited for the already-anticipated title, and once it was over we were hungry for more. We thought we’d have to wait another four months to see what happens after that trailers end, but luckily someone filmed what follows at a preview event, and despite the vid’s minor quality issues, our eyes were glued to the screen. Check it for yourself.

Above: Here’s the first bit of Bat-gameplay if you missed it

If you can tune out the enthusiastic shouts of Rocksteady’s Dax Ginn, you see Bats do the next logical thing and try to find whoever it was that tried to snipe Catwoman. Of course that leads Batman to beating the crap out a bunch of thugs, and eventually narrowly escaping an explosion. Hopefully we’ll get some raw footage of this soon, one without a pitchman yelling over it, and we’ll share it with you once that happens.

    Damn at first I was angry at all the yelling but after watching it for a while I understood that guy's excitement. Holy shit that's awesome

    Dax is ON DRUGS. I'd probably be enthusiastic too if I were working on this game. CAN'T WAIT.

    My God, the guy that's "narrating" the video is more annoying than Mr. Caffeine.

    Of all the days where my computer wont let me watch one video on this site, it is today.

    The game looks amazing!, but that guy is sooo freakin annoying I wish he would just shut up, he kept saying what was happening before it happened.

    I love how good of a grasp Rocksteady has on Batman/Bruce Wayne's character and his universe.

    I kind of LIKE the yelling guy. I wish he came with the game. He would probably make me feel bad about going the wrong way or dying or something, though.

    Even with all the yealling still awasome.
  • Mortified_Cow - July 7, 2011 3:25 a.m.

    NO, can't watch...don't want anything spoiled. NO!!
  • TriforcePlayer - July 7, 2011 2:32 a.m.

    Awesome stuff.
  • ThatGuyFromTV - July 7, 2011 1:57 a.m.

    You're overdoing it, Rocksteady! We don't need to see the entire game played for us before we play it ourselves!
  • Rubberducky - July 7, 2011 1:43 a.m.

    I think he yelled "boomski" at one point? The game looks great though, I'm actually looking forward to winter a bit now because of this.
  • codystovall - July 7, 2011 1:26 a.m.

    Hes yelling...alot.
  • BleedingHatMcGillicutty - July 6, 2011 11:57 p.m.

    Looking awesome! Now if only there was a version that didn't have a man yelling at me the whole time.

    I don't like the Catwoman design in this game. Not sexy like I was expecting, kind of effing ugly actually.
