Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have announced that the followup to Batman: Arkham Asylum now has an official name – Batman: Arkham City. The game will be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in the Autumn of 2011.
Developed by Rocksteady Studios, Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City, the new maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds. Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, this highly anticipated sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.
Well, now I only need to get an Xbox, and buy and play Batman: Arkham Asylum, within the year. No problem!
