A featured post on OXM UK revealed the achievements for Batman: Arkham City. We all know that achievements are part of the 360 experience but let’s not forget that 99.99% of the time they translate directly into a trophy list for the PS3 version (only exception sometimes being the addition of a Platinum trophy and extra ones not available on the 360 version, as was the case with Limbo).
Take note, as there will be some spoilers ahead!
Many remember him for his awkward participation in the movie Batman & Robin (1997), played by none other than the Governator himself in all his fuzzy slippers glory. This time, it seems like Mr. Freeze is really here as a great menace to The Bat. So be sure to check out this new Arkham City Reveal Trailer.
It really seems that Dr. Victor Fries is stepping up his game in order to save his beloved wife. Do you think he’ll be the cold blooded killer to put down the great Batman, or should he change his name to Mr. Breeze? We’ll all find out when the game comes out 10/18/2011 (that’s October 18th in case you’re not American).
The new Batman game “Arkham City” will be out on Oct 18th in the U.S and Oct 21st in the U.K.
According to Arkhamcity.co.uk, Retailers are offering different Batman skins prior to where you pre-order the game from.
From left to Right:
Batman Beyond: Pre-order the game from Gamestop UK.
The Dark Knight Returns: Purchase the collector edition from any store.
Batman Earth One: Pre-order the game from MightyApe.
1970′s Batman Suit: You can digitally download this Skin from Shopto.net
The Animated Series Skin: Pre-order the Game from MightyApe.
Last, but not least:
Robin fully playable Character: Pre-Order the Game from Best Buy.
We’ve all seen the concept art, but not much else was known about The Penguin’s part in the sequel to the much acclaimed Batman: Arkham Asylum. In this exclusive GameSpot trailer we can see Batman fighting a whole lot of baddies as usual. Some takedowns and combos seemed new to me as well.
Staring the trailer we can see Penguin without his usual top hat and some of “the best” henchmen money can buy (his words, not mine). Also new is the massive undead super villain Solomon Grundy, but I have no idea how this powerful enemy (known to be as strong as Superman on occasion) could’ve been imprisoned by a short fat guy with a umbrella collection and seemingly average chains.
We can all find out more about what’s their part in all this when Batman: Arkham City hits the stores on October 18th.
The year has passed us by quickly, huh? It seems like it was only yesterday when Batman: Arkham City was announced and here we are in the middle of July just waiting until October 18 is finally here so we can enjoy the next chapter in what will hopefully be a trilogy.
