We are finally looking at the trailer officially announcing the remastered versions of Batman Arkham Asylum and Arkham City for PS4 and Xbox one.
Almost everything worth playing has been remastered for current generation consoles. Till now, we couldn’t find any Batman titles on these “remastered” lists.
The arrival of the remastered version of Rocksteady’s Batman titles was thus an expected and inevitable move by one of the biggest development studios in the world.
For quite some time now we only heard rumors regarding the release of the remastered Arkham collection. I’m glad I’m able to inform you these talks are no longer stored in the rumors section of your favorite gaming site.
Warner Bros officially confirmed the release of Batman: Return to Arkham bundle, which will include remastered versions of Batman Arkham Asylum and Arkham City.
The collection will hit the open market on the 26th of July, for both PS4 and Xbox One.
The expected price of such a bundle should be somewhere in the range of $40 and $60, which, according to franchise fanatics, is a small price for such a classics.
The trailer shows us the improved graphic and upgraded gameplay models.
Virtuous, best known for their work on Heavy Rain and Uncharted 4 is the development studio standing behind the remastered Batman collection. You can rest assured the remastering is handled by experienced hands that haven’t failed us before.
Batman fans expecting the release of this intriguing double wouldn’t get only improved graphic, models and environment. They can also expect all the extras that come with all that downloadable content in the likes of new skins and upgraded characters.
I’m only dissatisfied by the timing of the remastered release. I hoped we would be able to play this classic prior the release of last year’s Batman: Arkham Knight.
Anyway, considering Arkham Knight faced various PC launch related problems WB and Rocksteady’s decision is certainly welcomed. We could’ve seen a chaos caused by two releases in the same year.
