  • Batman: Return to Arkham Release Date Set for October 18

    WBIE and DC Entertainment announced that Batman: Return to Arkham is now slated for a firm October 18, 2016 release date. This package of games that includes remasters of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City plus all DLC will be out on that date for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The bump to Unreal Engine 4 includes improvements to the overall "graphics, upgraded models, environments, lighting, effects, and shaders."

    There is even a new side-by-side comparison trailer that shows off the differences between the old and remastered versions of the games.

    Batman: Arkham Asylum is where it all began. Originally developed by Rocksteady Studios and released in 2009, the game pushed the envelope for action, adventure and super hero games and exposed players to a unique, dark and atmospheric adventure taking them to the depths of Arkham Asylum. Featuring an original story, gamers can move in the shadows, instill fear amongst their enemies and confront The Joker and Gotham City's most notorious villains, including Harley Quinn, Bane, Killer Croc, Poison Ivy and Scarecrow, who have taken over the asylum.

    Batman: Arkham City is Rocksteady Studios’ 2011 follow-up to Batman: Arkham Asylum. The game builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring through the expansive Arkham City – the maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds. Featuring an incredible Rogues Gallery of Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals including Catwoman, The Joker, The Riddler, Two-Face, Harley Quinn, The Penguin, Mr. Freeze and many others, the game allows players to experience what it feels like to be The Dark Knight and deliver justice to those confined within Arkham City.

    Batman: Return to Arkham will run you $49.99 (USD).
