So, I know I’m a little bit late to the party with this one but, Warner Bros. Interactive announced on Thursday that the follow-up to their award-winning game Batman: Arkham Asylum will be Batman: Arkham City. Rocksteady Studios, the same developer behind the critically acclaimed original Batman title from 2009, will be at the helm again. Promising to build upon the “intense, atmospheric foundation” of the first game, players will be thrust into the maximum security home for all of Gothams gangsters, thugs, and criminal masterminds. That home, is Arkham City.
The highly anticipated sequel, set inside the heavily fortified walls of a vast district of Gotham City, brings together a new cast of classic characters from the world of the Caped Crusader. Warner Bros. Interactive promises “a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.”
I was one of the 6 people in the world who didn’t play Batman: Arkham Asylum. It’s because of that fact that I cry myself to sleep almost every night. Well that, plus my inherent fear of the color black. Which is what color I see when I close my eyes. So, you see, it’s scary when I go to sleep… Sorry. I got sidetracked.
Batman: Arkham City will be available for the XBox 360, PC, and PS3 in Autumn of 2011. Hopefully I can play the first one before then.
