‘Batman: Arkham Collection’ Bundle AnnouncedBy: Sean Patterson - November 14, 2013
Normally game publishers wait a year or two since their latest game release before offering their anthology or heritage series collections. Given the lackluster response to the release of Batman: Arkham Origins at the end of last month, though, Warner Bros. isn’t waiting for it to age.
Warner Bros. today announced the Batman: Arkham Collection. The bundle comes with all three of the Arkham Batman games: Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, and Batman: Arkham Origins. The collection has been confirmed only for the UK, where it will launch on November 22 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
The bundle comes only with a game disc for Arkham Origins. The bundle will come with download codes for the digital versions of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. Warner Bros. has essentially made the previous two (better reviewed) Batman: Arkham games into a value add for Origins.
No price has been announced for the new bundle, but gamers in the UK looking to get into the series can probably expect to pay more than the retail price of Origins.
PC gamers will also get the best of the deal, as the versions of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City included in the PC version are both “Game of the Year” editions will all the game’s DLC included. The PlayStation 3 version of the bundle will also come with the “Knightfall” DLC for Arkham Origins.
