Teased at last year’s Spike VGA awards, Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 was the surprise game of the show since no one really expected to hear anything regarding a sequel so soon after the first game came out. Now the follow up has an official name; Batman: Arkham City and from the initial press release, sounds as if Rocksteady Studios have expanded the idea of a prison complex into a whole city. Arkham City lays within the heart of Gotham City and its heavily fortified walls keep the insane inside. Clearly something goes awry adding a brand new storyline and calling on classic characters from the Batman universe. Coming Autumn 2011, Batman: Arkham City will be available for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC but in the mean time, an official website has been set up handing out updates to all those who offer their email addresses.
While I appreciate being in the minority by not falling in love with Arkham Asylam, the possibility of an open-world adventure for Arkham City is really quite intriguing. I know plenty of people who are thinking one thing right now; “awesome”.
