Batman: Arkham Knight sees the return Scarecrow to the city of Gotham, and the game’s first official gameplay trailer gives us a glimpse at the villain. At the beginning of the video you can hear Scarecrow giving a frightful speech as the citizens of Gotham flee the city to escape his fear toxins.

The masked villain assembles together a group of other notorious bad guys in an attempt to get rid of Batman once and for all. But Batman has an ace up his utility belt – the Batmoblie.

The Arkham Knight himself also makes a short appearance towards the end, so stick around for that.

Batman: Arkham Knight will be released in October for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
