As the previous Batman: Arkham Knight trailer showed, players will be able to switch between Batman and a compatriot. This new video from PlayStation and Rocksteady Studios shows off the gameplay feature in depth.
The video uses one scenario where Batman and Nightwing team up to take down Penguin’s thugs. Batman makes a trademark entrance to team up with Nightwing inside where they are met by a sizeable horde of angry and violent thugs.
Combat appears to use the same streamlined and fluid combat system as ever. But this time, you’ll be able to switch over to your ally at any time. Your combo will carry on and if you have your special charged up, you can instantly use your super takedown.
The video also answers a couple of Arkham superfan CabooseXBL’s questions. Brand Marketing Producer Dax Ginn explains what will be happening around the open world to make it seem like a living, breathing place; the impact that the Joker has had on Batman; and just how tricky those Riddler puzzles are going to be.
