A new, and very short, Batman: Arkham City trailer has arrived on the internet. We got word yesterday that MSN would be hosting the brand new and exclusive Arkham City teaser trailer. Now it's finally here and tease it does. Don't blink:
Ha, at first I thought I was watching some Live Action advert for Splinter Cell. Pretty cool, but I think it's the gameplay that everyones really waiting for.
Yeah, it did remind me of that too... haha. Not much gameplay there, but I think if it is anything like the first game, it'll be a winner. :)
Not *much* gameplay? There wasn't any that I could see. There's no doubt in my mind that this game will be great. Better than AS? Maybe not, but it would be great if they could pull it off.
In my own dumb way I thought it was an advert for Splinter Cell: Conviction (bit late now!) and I expected the trailer to begin after it. And then I see Batman and think..."oh."
I hope it's more brutal the the first. The combat was great but Batman has a darker tone and I felt that they didn't really capture the brutality of Batman's attacks and combat. Maybe a little bit of blood? And less guys holding their face while getting knocked out.. that was kinda weird.
Well that was anticlimactic.
Yeah I thought it was splinter cell too for a few seconds.
Batman knocked out a squad of 'splinter cells.' But the question is why?
One of them splinter cell dudes sounded like Jason Statham. Amirite?
@ StanLee That's what she said. about the vid though, pretty neat teaser, however, I was rather annoyed by the near 2 pixel by 2 pixel video size.
I was like. What the heck? I thought this was batman not splinter cell? Then batman drops in and beats the crap out of everyone. If only they got a 3 kill streak before the mission then they could have had UAV.
lol great comment. Batman could have been rolling UAV jammer though.
Weird to me they look like some special ops group and batman beats them up shouldn't he be kicking some prisoner ass?
nah. it' some of those hilarious blackgate prisoners. remeber them wearing security uniforms in some levels in AA?
Oh yeah forgot about that
same same, thought it was ad right before actual teaser, then swoop batman beats sh*t out of them! you got your batman in my rainbow six!
the last one rocked my world and I got a platinum on it. "Bereaver" Assassins is shit compared to arkham asylum.
Think I just had a Batgasm
Damn its a teaser not a trailer.. Theres a difference :( Gutted thats all we saw not any in game footage or anything about the game..
haha sam fisher gets slapped by batman loool
trailer sucked i thought it was a splinter cell advertisement at first till batman came up,i wanna see gameplay guys as long as it stays close if not better than the first one it will be awesome
Video looks like live action, can we make videos this good?
I'm really looking forward to this!
Ditto on the Splinter Cell thoughts. My only complaint is that I just don't see the point in releasing a 5 second "teaser" a year before the game comes out. It showed absolutely nothing and truly served no purpose. "OOH, CG Batman beat up some CG Splinter Cell wannabes!" Why can't companies hold their was until they have something substantial to show?
This teaser trailer was absolute crap. There was no point in releasing another teaser trailer. Should have been a full blown one. Still buying the game on day one though.
This was just a teaser for the trailer and not the actual trailer. We'll get the full trailer on Saturday, during the VGAs.
What do you expect from a TEASER trailer, it's just basically to tell people the game exists and to get them excited.
Finally, things are starting to get interesting around here now that the GT5 flame wars have been extinguished! Can't wait for the VGAs. There'll be so much to discuss.
yup ... i like gt5 , but its sickening to hear about it everytime in both positive and negative articles ... And it was the same with COD BO .. These days when a big game get released , it's best to stay clear it seems
Honestly though, when World War 3 broke out over GT5 the only reason I was here was because my 360 was broken, so I couldn't play Black Ops or anything else. But never again. Whenever a big game launches, you'd best make sure you're playing a game or you have the game being talked about to play/defend, because being on the sidelines and hearing about it constantly can drive you to distraction.
yea, although if we get news on the crytek game things will go downhill here...
just beat the shit out of Sam Fisher, that had to be on purpose.
exactly ;) well spotted. I think its taking a slight jab at the death of SC stealth can't touch snake though <_<
the stealth in SC is the most realistic
Or because fighting Splinter Cells is something you do in the game.
That was a waste of time
Not hating on Batman : AC, but if this was supposed to induce excitement for the game (which is about a year away from release!) then it hasn't succeeded. Too brief, too ordinary. Batman beating up some Special Op dudes; whoop-de-doo. Let it be said, I did complete AA and enjoyed it thoroughly. Its sequel is too far away at this present time to get my blood pumping though, and this teaser hasn't helped.
Whoever made that trailer should be fired. Completely uninspired.
this is a cgi trailer.. i want in-game trailer!!!
Need a YouTube link, no flash on stupid iPhone!!
Now I'm just confused.
Sam Fisher and his crew just got owned lol
WOW Batman > Sam Fisher and i can't get this stupid video player to work!
Teasers feel like a waste of time and money, especially teasers like that, but whatever, I didn't need it anyway since Arkham Asylum was my GOTY and I have beaten it 8 times.
Guys, it is a TEASER of the full trailer to be shown on saturday...why does everyone sound like that's all we'll be getting?
Fair enough. It's still a complete waste of 30 seconds however.
I'm waiting for the day we see that kind of graphics in-game
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. GOTY 2011 and I'm saying it 8)
this ain't on f-ing trailer!!! it's a teaser!!! you bastards!!!
*Teaser Trailer Defense Force*
RELEASE IT NOW !
YAY! 15 SECONDS OF NON-RELATED NON-GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE! YEEAAAAAAA!!!!!!!
video wont work for me :( Edit: Nvm just took a while to load!,looks awesome!! Batman Owns.
That was pretty underwhelming, zero game play and I don't think it had in-game assets either. I know the developers are more than capable because I played the 1st one, but I do hope they show us more at VGA 2010. That did nothing for me.
Wow is it me or does Batman resemble George Clooney's version of Batman, especially the initial screenshot. Also this.
I wonder if the VGA trailer will be this trailer but longer.
I really can not wait for this game. I really enjoyed the last one until I had to do combat challenges. I really can not stand combat challenges I always tend to get pissed off and stop playing the game. Lol good thing I always play the story first.
Batman Conviction :p
