Batman: Arkham Knight has received its first batch of official screenshots, seen in the gallery below.

The eight new screens show Batman gliding above a sprawling Gotham City, the new Batmobile crashing through some cars, and a few of the characters we’ll get to meet during the game. These are Edward Nigma, The Penguin, Commissioner Gordon and a woman who could be Barbara Gordon.

Batman: Arkham Knight is being developed by Rocksteady Studios for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. The game will be released by the end of this year.
