The Dark Knight will rise again on Xbox One, PS4 and PC just in time for the holidays. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have revealed that Batman: Return to Arkham will release on October 21.
The game was previously delayed (set to release July 26) in order to give developer, Virtuous Games more time to polish their production. Batman: Return To Arkham will be the most comprehensive Batman experience available on current gen machines.
Batman: Return to Arkham & Its Epic Side-By-Side Comparison
Virtuous Games worked on both Star Wars: Battlefront and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, so as far as gaming aesthetics go, Virtuous are world leaders. But their latest game package includes remastered editions of Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham City and Batman: Arkham Asylum. The bundle will launch with all available DLCs already installed into the games.
Both Arkham City and Asylum achieved almost immediate acclaim for being the most immersive and technically brilliant Batman adventures ever conceived on the gaming platform. Following on from these two stellar games came, Batman: Arkham Knight, which to date has sold over 5 Million copies.
Rocksteady’s legendary Batman series apparently came to an end with Arkham Knight, but with the release of Batman: Return to Arkham hitting stores in October we won't have to wait long for our next Batman fix.
The remastered editions should provide players with a totally fresh experience of the games. More computing power means more pixels, more options and more bad guys to punch in the face. The old games ran on Unreal 3, whilst the new versions will be running on Unreal 4.
To accompany the news, Warner Bros has also released a side-by-side trailer to further demonstrate the advancements in gameplay. Suit up and slap on the mascara, Arkham, once again, needs your help!
Batman: Return to Arkham will release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, October 21.
