Batman is getting yet another new Batmobile. We recently saw teases of director Zack Snyder's take on the iconic vehicle for the upcoming movie starring the Dark Knight and Superman. The movie isn't due to hit screens until 2016, so until then, we'll have to focus on the video game world as the Bat gets a new car to appear in Batman: Arkham Knight.

The game is the fourth entry in the action-adventure series starring the Caped Crusader and is the first to appear on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. The franchise kicked off on the previous generation systems with Batman: Arkham Asylum from developer Rocksteady. After sitting out of production of Batman: Arkham Origins, it's back in the driver's seat for the latest one.

Arkham Knight will put players directly in control of the redesigned, dune-buggy-like Batmobile that you see above. According to a preview in Game Informer, the car can transform between a standard Pursuit mode and Battle mode (as pictured) with a cannon and machine gun, which seems like very un-Batman equipment. It can also be remote controlled so players can swap between the Dark Knight and the vehicle to help with combat.

The game is scheduled for a 2015 release, but Rocksteady is promising more details about it during the E3 video game tradeshow from June 10-12. Scroll down to watch a video of the latest Batmobile transforming between modes in the game.

      I thought batman doesnt kill people. With those weapons, I think a death or two, or three may happen.

        You need to read up on the Dark Knight series then.

      So half of the people commenting have no idea that the movie and this game are two separate things. Good to know. That said - it looks like Rocksteady outsourced their Batmobile design to Michael Bay and the Transformers team.

      I hope GM didn't design the ignition.

      looks to messy and jagged. Not smooth and clean and badass.

      It is clear that this will be another Batman Forever. It looks like a carnival ride.

        This is the batmobile for the game, not Zach Snyder's film version.

          Snyder's decision to choose Ben frickin Affleck is enough to see this is in fact another Batman forever. Seriously, Ben Affleck, Batman. Come on people!

      Terrible. First Ben and now this. This stinks of the same post-Keaton Batmans that moviegoers were plagued with. I will not be going to see any of these. At least with the Bale Batmans they made it somewhat believable in a fantasy way. Ben ******* and now this cartoonish batmobile remind me of the Clooney debacle.

        So what is wrong with Ben Affleck?

        Yes I realize this is just the video game. Still. Ben Affleck means this is more than likely the garbage we will get for the movie.

      I think it looks awesome. Like the Tumbler went on a major diet and fitness regimen. Sort of looks like a Stealth Fighter with 4 wheels. My only problem with it is that its perhaps too awesome for Batman. I mean Batman's all about not killing, but a 60mm cannon, an anti-tank/surface to air mingun, and a missile battery are about as non lethal as putty a rat in a blender rigged with explosives.

        This is the Dark Knight series that the movie and the game will be based on. This is a more ruthless Batman than past Batmans. He's more of a cross between the Keaton Batman and Punisher.

        Batman is about non killing in hand to hand combat, but all his vehicles have serious firepower.

      And... my expectations for this movie just got lower. If it gets much lower it'll be on par with that need for speed movie.
