The Official Batman: Arkham City Thread
 

 

Batman: Arkham City is the sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum, based on DC Comics' Batman. It is being developed by Rocksteady Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for release on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Microsoft Windows and OnLive. The game was officially announced during the 2009 Spike Video Game Awards and is scheduled for a worldwide release, beginning in North America on October 18, 2011.


Plot

The story for Arkham City takes place approximately one year after the events of Arkham Asylum. Quincy Sharp, former warden of Arkham Asylum, has taken credit for stopping the Joker, and used the notoriety to become mayor of Gotham City. As neither Arkham nor Blackgate Prison are in any condition to detain inmates, Sharp buys out a large section of Gotham's slums and arms the perimeter with private military contractors from a group called Tyger in order to create "Arkham City". The prisoners are brought into Arkham City and are given free rein, as long as they do not attempt escape. To oversee the city, Sharp hires psychiatrist Hugo Strange who appears to have his own secret agenda for the city. Batman maintains a vigil over the city, worried that the situation may get out of hand.


The events of the game are set in motion when Two-Face, seeking to gain notoriety among the inmates and other villains outside the city, devises a plan to publicly execute Catwoman. Batman decides for both the safety of Gotham and of his past relationship with Catwoman that he must stop the execution by entering Arkham City. Catwoman takes advantage of the chaos in Arkham City to acquire jewelry, and a few high tech gadgets; much like how Batman receives new tools and upgrades.

A teaser trailer was released that featured Joker being nursed by Harley Quinn from the effects of the Titan formula (and the explosive gel punch from Batman) while Arkham City descends into chaos. The sequel was described by veteran Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy as "really, really dark". While relating the game's dark nature to the animated movie Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, Conroy also said, "It involves a lot of the villains and it goes to that area – it's that dark."

All of the skins are going to be available as DLC. Certain places have different preorder offers for some of the skins but I can't remember any from the top of my head.

You never answered my question.

Is it true you can't get past the Catwoman part without inputting a code you get by purchasing a retail copy? Some guys on 360ISO were saying that.

Don't believe so. Haven't made it there. Only thing really specific I see for Catwoman is some separate missions in the main menu.

According to Destructoid.

If you're looking forward to playing Gotham City's feline femme fatale in the upcoming Batman: Arkham City, plan on dealing with an online pass. Warner Bros. has confirmed that the kitty's content is locked away unless you have the code included in new copies of the game. Players who purchase used will be able to purchase the content a la carte from PlayStation Network and Xbox Live for $9.99 (800 MSP).

Warner Bros. also pointed out that the Catwoman content is not necessary to complete the game, putting it in the realm of a bonus feature more than anything else. I'm fine with this on a personal level, as I had zero intention of picking this up pre-owned, but caveat emptor to all of you used buyers out there.

We'll have our review of Arkham City on Destructoid tomorrow.

Had that issue also on my first and burn of the game I kept getting a download content, then I burn it again without using a user specified layer break on imgburn and now no problems game working perfect, saw that somebody got the dlc for it for catwoman which I'm going to check after I get off work. The rip I'm using is the XPG rip I downloaded the Complex release this morning but haven't burned it yet.

Question for the people who have been to Midnight releases: What time do the stores usually close when that takes place? 1AM?

I don't feel like getting there early and waiting in line, I'd rather just go in when almost everyone has gotten their copies.

Depends on the store. When I work at Best buy and we had midnight openings we close like at 12:30am or 1am cause nobody never came to them but they will always have them and nobody never comes. Best thing to do is ask a employee who been there for at least a year and ask how are their midnight releases.

Well, the dude told me that it was going to be a madhouse because Arkham City had the highest pre-order numbers out of all of the upcoming games. I guess they're closing at about 1...

fu*k it, I'll just wait in line. I'm sure it'll be well worth it.
