With the release of Batman: Arkham Knight drawing closer and closer, the official TV spot for the game has come to light to really drive it home. Set to “Mercy” by Muse, this 31 second commercial seeks to capture the idea behind the concept of Batman: a ruthless vigilante with one rule… mercy.
However, the video sets a strange mood, as if Batman is in so much danger that he might not make it this time. Arkham Knight is set to be the finale of the Arkham series, or at least the end of developer Rocksteady’s acclaimed trilogy. As such, it is a little alarming that this short ad for the game has such an ominous tone.
Check out Gotham’s ray of hope come under fire in this latest taste of Batman: Arkham Knight below. Batman: Arkham Knight is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on June 23.
