As well as being listed in the game’s YouTube credits, Reznor received thanks for his contribution on the game’s Twitter account.

Additionally, Consequence of Sound reports fan speculation that Reznor helped secure directors Tim and Jeff Cronenweth, who Reznor worked with on Gone Girl and Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, for the trailer.

Batman: Arkham Knight will be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 23.

Last year, Reznor soundtracked the film adaptation of Gone Girl with Atticus Ross.


The Nine Inch Nails musician teamed up with director David Fincher on the film, following their work on The Social Network and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

Reznor previously said that his score for the film was inspired by music heard in massage parlours. Speaking to The Wall Street Journal about his latest project, Reznor revealed that the Gone Girl score is like a “curdled” version of relaxation music.

“[Fincher] said, ‘Think about the really terrible music you hear in massage parlours. The way that it artificially tries to make you feel like everything’s OK. And then imagine that sound starting to curdle and unravel,'” said Reznor.

Four songs from the album can be streamed below.
