Who’s afraid of the big bad bat? Well if it happens to be me sweating it inside one of those bat-themed costumes, most likely nobody. The read deal is far more intimidating though; see for yourself after the jump.

Warner Bros. Games has allowed 17 minutes of gameplay with commentary from senior producer Ben Mattes and gameplay director Michael McIntyre to escape from the asylum. It’s got beatdowns, brooding, batcaves and gadgets. Oh my.

The game is out on Friday. Until then, I’ll be forcing Victor to speak with a British accent and act as my personal butler.

          AC was good, so that makes me happy. Everyone was worried it’d go down the tubes with a new studio taking over the franchise.

            True AC was great, but this just looks like AC 2.0, Origins should show Batman as a more unrefined hero

        I am sure the game is great because Rocksteady fcking rock. The melee and upgrading has always been AAA.

        But something is missing. Where is the AAA narrative of the last two titles.

        Anyway, like the Batman Trilogy, the Joker made number two. The third is for fizzle.

        I just had to scroll to the top of the page to remind myself what the game is called. Sad.
