No Batmobile in Arkham City

No need - Bats is "the ultimate vehicle."

Hoping for a bit of Batmobile action in the forthcoming Batman: Arkham City? Tough luck - there are no vehicles in the game, developer Rocksteady Studios has revealed.

Speaking to GamesTM, as reported by fan site Arkham City, the game's director Sefton Hill explained "There aren't any playable vehicles in the game. What we've really focused on is Batman himself. We see him as the ultimate vehicle."

Precious little info has seeped out so far regarding the much anticipated follow-up to the ruddy brilliant 2009 blockbuster Arkham Asylum.

We know it's set in an anything-goes mad house in the centre of Gotham City, that Catwoman and Two Face are getting in on the action and that The Joker is back on the scene, but that's about it.

Alas, there's a bit of a wait before we'll find out much more - the game's not out until Q3 2011. To stave off the hunger pangs in the meantime, why not check out the teaser trailer below.
