Batman Arkham HD Collection Confirmed (Well, Almost)
Last month, we heard an encouraging rumor that pointed toward a Batman Arkham collection.
Well, now that updated compilation appears inevitable.
Eurogamer received images of the currently unannounced "Batman HD Collection" from an anonymous GameStop employee (see the pic through the link). It seems this bundle would include upgraded versions of the first two games in the Rocksteady franchise, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City. Unsurprisingly, purchasers would receive all the downloadable content released for both titles.
It doesn't appear as if the third installment, Batman: Arkham Origins, will be included in the package, but that's probably because it wasn't developed at Rocksteady; rather, it was an in-house project by WB Games Montreal. And it wasn't anywhere near as good as the first two games, anyway. The leak claims Arkham Asylum and Arkham City will boast "updated visuals" that have been fully optimized for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and the HD Collection will supposedly land on June 10.
Expect an official announcement later today; at which time you'll be able to pre-order. Last year's Batman: Arkham Knight was yet another excellent entry in the stellar series but if you missed the first two, or you simply want to relive those games with better tech, you know what to do.
