We're eagerly awaiting the release of Arkham Knight for the PlayStation 4 and XboxOne.

The release date is confirmed for June 23rd - that's just under a month away if you want to book some time off work, FYI.

This gameplay footage, taken directly from a PlayStation 4, sees the driving system in action as well as the "passenger system" which sees you taking in villains and criminals and dropping them off at detention cells across the city.

We also get a glimpse at Poison Ivy looking quite, well, y'know and a better idea of what the plot is. We're guessing it's Scarecrow wanting to cause badness in Gotham and his attempts to join forces with other villains from the DC Comics' universe.

All in all, it looks pretty damn great. 

June 23rd cannot come quick, folks.
