Batman Arkham Knight screenshots show Harley and Batmobile

Plus, a fresh look at the Batsuit

New Batman: Arkham Knight screenshots have been released via the official Batman Arkham Twitter account.

The latest shots offer a fresh look at the new Batsuit, the redesigned Harley Quinn and the Batmobile, which makes its playable debut in the upcoming third and final entry in Rocksteady's Arkham series.

The title takes place one year after the events of Arkham City, with Batman at the very peak of his powers, when a gallery of villains descend upon Gotham and team up to bring the Dark Knight down once and for all.

The game's main villain has been revealed as the Arkham Knight, a character unique to the game's universe that was created by Geoff Johns, writer of Green Lantern, Aquaman, and Justice League.

The Arkham Knight character has been pitched as a rougher, more extreme, militarised version of Batman who will "really challenge Batman to go head to head with him in lots of different ways".

Rocksteady's Sefton Hill previously said the studio is aiming to take the fantasy of being Batman "one step further" in the sequel.

"The Arkham games have always been about providing that power fantasy, about being and feeling like Batman," he said. "We're going to take it further with the addition of the Batmobile and the bigger city."

"We've known it's what people want. When you're Batman you do think Batmobile, It's the one key thing we felt we really always wanted to do. And also that refreshes the whole experience, which I really think it does," Hill continued. "What we're always trying to do is [make] every game feel like a new game rather than another episode of the last one."

Billed as the "explosive finale" to the series, Arkham Knight will be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2014.
