WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT LAUNCHES BATMAN™: RETURN TO ARKHAM
Critically Acclaimed Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City Remastered by Virtuos for PlayStation®4 and Xbox One Available Now in North America
Originally developed by Rocksteady Studios and released in 2009 to a 92 Metacritic score, Batman: Arkham Asylum is where it all started. The game set the stage for DC’s “Arkhamverse” that fans know and love today, and introduced players to a unique, dark and atmospheric adventure that takes players 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 that builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum. Earning a 96 Metacritic score, the game sends 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 is based on DC’s core Batman license and is rated 16 by PEGI. Fans can visit http://Facebook.com/batmanarkham for more information about the game.
