The first two games in Rocksteady Studios critically-acclaimed Batman: Arkham series, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, were released in 2009 and 2011, respectively, and in that time, visual effects for video games, and the consoles, have continued to improve substantially. With that being said, Rocksteady decided to remaster and re-release those two games as part of their upcoming Batman: Return to Arkham collection.
To show just how much the models, environments, and lighting effects have been upgraded in both games, fans of the series have been putting together side-by-side comparison videos and images.
Return to Arkham and experience two of the most critically acclaimed titles of the last generation - Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, with fully remastered and updated visuals. Batman: Return to Arkham includes the comprehensive versions of both games and includes all previously released additional content.
Batman: Arkham Asylum exposes players to a dark and atmospheric adventure that takes them into the depths of Arkham Asylum –Gotham City’s high security psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane. Use Batman’s legendary gadgetry, strike from the shadows, and confront The Joker and Gotham City’s most notorious super villains.
Batman: Arkham City sends players soaring into Arkham City - a heavily fortified sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City. Batman Arkham City introduces a brand-new story that draws together an all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as new and enhanced gameplay features.
Batman Return To Arkham will be available for both PS4 and Xbox One on July 26th.
