Over on Game Trailers, there's a special Batman: Arkham City episode of GTTV in which Rocksteady reveals a host of new gadgets and a brand new villain. First of all, Bats will have access to a whole array of new toys, including a Remote Electrical Charge that can power machinery and create electromagnetic fields, and some of Mr. Freeze's technology that enables the Dark Knight to create ice platforms and freeze enemies in place.

There's twelve new gadgets in all, including the ones from Batman: Arkham Asylum with new features of their own. Rocksteady then also revealed that Floyd Lawton AKA Deadshot, the hired assassin who apparently never misses, will be another new villain for Batman: Arkham City.

You'll find murder scenes around Arkham City, where you'll have to use Batman's detective skills to figure out who's on Deadshot's assassination hit list. Amazing stuff. Check out the still below to see what Deadshot will look like in the game, then get your cape and cowl ready for Batman: Arkham City on October 18th in North America and October 21st in Europe.

Deadshot looks horrible. Why can't they have put him in his iconic silver & red suit. :(

@15 because while wanting to be a comic game they also want to make the game more realistic on how characters look. meaning youll never see yellow spandex in a xmen movie.
