Batman: Arkham City Hitting On October 18

Batman, Batman, Batman.

After a wee bit of confusion yesterday regarding regions, Warner Bros. has come out and clarified news of the various launch dates of Batman: Arkham City. The follow-up will hit US shores on October 18, a mere day before the game graces the land down under on October 19. It will then see releases across Europe and the rest of the world (or “other global territories,” as the press release puts it) a little later on October 21.

Not much to say on this one other than, man, I want more Batman! The first was fantastic and it looks like Rocksteady is doing what it should with this sequel by opening the environments, ratcheting the conflict, and giving Batman (and you) more abilities and things to do. 

Oh, and some new screens were being passed around this morning. Check them out:

Guess I was the only person in the world who thought Arkham Asylum was boring as all hell?

Posted by RobotHamster

So it comes out roughly two weeks before Uncharted which is ten days before Skyrim as well as whatever else comes out in Q4, well I guess I don't have to eat for a month.

@JacDG: Not boring per se but not as great as everyone else seems to think it was...

Cool...but when are they gonna lift that embargo!?? 
 
It's TEN SECONDS. I wouldn't even be curious if it were an entire trailer, but ten seconds? I HAVE TO KNOWWWWWW.

Batman: AA was my favourite game of this generation hands down, Arkham City looks to pick up the title and just run like fuck away with it!

There are too many months between now and October.

This is earlier then I thought. Can't wait. 

Posted by Undeadpool

Jeez! I thought we'd have to wait til next year! This year is shaping up to be amazing, though I'm sure GOTY will be even more contentious.

@JacDG: 
Finally found someone that feels the same way. I was expecting so much from everyone's raving, guess I'm just not that into Batman though..

People who post a comment like this deserve a dunce cap beside their avatar, honestly.

There are not many of you around, I'm sure.

Whenever I see the phrase "Batman: AA", I think of Batman: Alcoholics Anonymous. What a fun game that would be...

I'm supposed to be half way through Basic Training around then...
Posted by Xpgamer7

May be GOTY for me.

Just bought Batman Arkham Asylym yesterday and I think it's best superhero game ever made and great game too. I wasn't waiting this game before I played Batman AA but now I am.

I've been ready since the day I saw the exploding bat punch!
Posted by DuskVamp
@Fontan: By the looks of things, I think you're right. I wanted to like it, but no luck
Posted by John1912

Hope this is as good as the first one.  Its sooo rare to get a decent Super Hero game, let alone a AAA one.

Friggin Batman...

This comes out a day before my birthday... Coincidence?

 I say NO
