Game Releases Fall 2011 – Batman Arkham City

Batman Arkham City Pre-order Bonuses

This is one of those times where the nickel-and-diming of DLC and “retailor exclusive” content has become a big headache. The problem is not only figuring out which editon to buy and where, but, if you really want certain items, if you should buy multiples.  It’s almost inevitable that any retailer exlusive content (whether bound by store or country of purchase) will at some point be purchasable via PSN, XBOX Live or PC service of choice. However to “complete” your collection it will probably cost you a pretty penny. Here are some of the basic pre-order bonuses.

  • [amazon_link id=”B002I0F5M8″ target=”_blank” ]Batman Arkham City Pre-Order Amazon[/amazon_link] : Standard Edition comes with $10 Promotional Credit and exclusive Batman Arkham City comic for consoles only. (Collector’s Ed. below)
  • Batman Arkham City Pre-Order BestBuy : “Exclusive” Robin, usable in challenges and the two additional maps available with this pre-order, Freight Train Escape and Black Mask Hideout
  • Batman Arkham City Pre-Order Newegg : Free Batman T-shirt! 😛
  • GameStop : Gives you the Joker’s Carnival Challeng Map & Gotham Knight DVD

Batman Arkham City Collector’s Edition

For those willing to invest $99.99 the [amazon_link id=”B003O6ECW4″ target=”_blank” ]Batman Arkham City Collector’s Edition[/amazon_link] will not disappoint. The crowning jewel of this collection, for me, is not the beautiful statue, the extra maps or the included Gotham Knight DVD.  It is the kick-ass Dark Knight returns skinsBatman Arkham City Statue modeled after one of, if not the best, story-line in Batman Comics history.

  • Custom Batman statue produced by Kotobukiya
  • Collectible art book
  • Early access to the Iceberg Lounge Challenge Map and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns skin
  • Batman: Arkham City album from WaterTower Music including original songs by hit artists, available via digital redemption
  • Bonus DC Universe animated original movie, Batman: Gotham Knight
  • Four collectible cards
Arkham City Collector's Edition Content

To gear up for Arkham City, I’ll be working towards a platinum trophy. I finally pull of the Freeflow Perfection last night.  Most of the trophy clean-up will be going towards completing the game on hard difficulty and routing out the final Riddler quests.
