‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ E3 2015 trailer features The Joker and M-rated gameplay

A new trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight was just shown off at Sony’s E3 2015 press conference! Fans who were hoping The Joker would somehow come back from the dead will be a little disappointed — the trailer kicks off with Commissioner Gordon cremating The Joker, putting him to rest once and for all.

We’re then treated to some gameplay footage which shows off why the game received a M for Mature rating. The first-person gameplay footage almost looks like Zombie mode from Call of Duty. Check out the full E3 2015 trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight above to see what I mean.

Game director Sefton Hill announced on Twitter that the footage shown at E3 was from the opening minutes of the game:

Batman: Arkham Knight will be released on June 23 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
