Sorry, Bat-fans, you’ve got another few weeks added to your wait for Arkham Knight. Batman has been a bit delayed and will miss his June 2 release date.

According to Warner Bros via Twitter this morning, the new date is June 23, 2015. While this is only a few weeks, it does put the game on the other side of this year’s E3 in Los Angeles.

Along with the delay announcement comes a new video captured directly from the PlayStation 4 version. Early on, we see a transition from cutscene to gameplay that appears extremely smooth. 

You’ll also get a feel for combat (which doesn’t appear to have been changed much) and then a transition to the Batmobile. This also addresses one of the concerns about the Batmobile’s apparently lethal armaments. 

While Batman is in pursuit of a fleeing vehicle, he has access to an immobilizer weapon (which appear like rockets, but apparently aren’t armed to kill). Sounds like it stings about, though.
