Batman is everywhere. Hanging around on gargoyles, watching you in your home. Mucking about in alleys, crying about his dead mum and dad. Sometimes he even puts on a moustache, and could be standing right next to you and you wouldn’t even know it. Batman doesn’t have a release date, because Batman is with you always.
Video game Batman, however, only appears at certain times. He’s a totally different phenomenon. Like an eclipse. His next expected appearance isn’t for a while. Almost a year! Think of all the crimes he’s missing. Clearly Rocksteady didn’t think of that when they decided to make the release date for Arkham Knight June 2nd, 2015.
As is increasingly par for the course in the extravagant world of AAA games, Batman: Arkham Knight will have two collector’s editions.
The Limited Edition will come with an artbook, a steelbook case, a comic, three extra skins from The New 52 comics, Batman: Arkham Knight #0 and a “memorial statue”. That’ll set you back £79.99.
The second collector’s edition contains all of the above (apart from the statue) as well as a “fully transformable” Batmobile. That’ll set you back £169.99, but apparently that’s just for the console version.
