Just in time to celebrate 80 years of Batman out there, we are getting Batman: Arkham Collection released yet again. This time in a physical form with a steelbook and with all of the upgrades and fixes that Rocksteady Games put out there when it launched digitally on the PS4 and Xbox One not that long ago. That is right, this is not the first time we all have heard of the Batman: Arkham Collection and now we will have a new option on how to buy it. At least if you are living in the EU region in September or know someone well enough to pick one up and ship it to you. There are options.
As a reminder, the Batman: Arkham Collection houses remastered versions of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City while also including Arkham Knight and all of the DLC that released to date. This new bundle will also house the Earth 2 Dark Knight skin that has not been available in Europe before now. I guess this is a new reason to pick up this older title and get more Batman in your life. I am just hoping that this is going to be setting something up for another announcement that could be coming soon. The timing works but also fits for the reason the team did not have anything to announce during E3.
Batman: Arkham Collection will include the Earth 2 Dark Knight Skin, exclusively on PS4. This marks the first time the Earth 2 Dark Knight Skin has been available to players in Europe. It'll be made available to all owners of Batman: Arkham Knight on PS4 worldwide January 2020!— Rocksteady Studios (@RocksteadyGames) July 8, 2019
Are you surprised to be hearing about Batman: Arkham Collection again or did you figure given the anniversary of the character that it would be coming?
