After being so heavily rumoured, the Batman: Arkham Collection was announced by Rocksteady Marketing Manager, Gaz Deaves.
Whats the point of this collection?
to milk the userbase once again.
Milk the system is correct. I'm not currently seeing the Arkham Knight complete or deluxe collection being sold, but it is added to the collection of all three games.
pretty much. Rabid fans will see the word "collection" and Rocksteady knows that people who froth at the idea of getting something as part of a "collection". I adore the Arkham games, but man....My only question is, what the hell took them so long? If this came out like a year or so after Knight, that might make sense, but these games have been MASSIVELY discounted since then.
I guess if people still haven't played these games, there are three of them in this collection. I mean, they really should play these games if they can. For the majority, this is pointless, unless having a steelbook case is that big a deal to some people. It might look nice on a shelf. It's not really for those of us who have all the games in the series.
@SolidGear3 That's based on the UK leak. I'm assuming it will be a steelbook for NA too, but all I know about is the UK release.
I only made a fuss to buy one steelbook in my life, and that was the one for Mad Max: Fury Road. The thing is absolutely gorgeous.
Hopefully they will use money from this to fund their next game, IO did this with HITMAN 2 and all the collections they released.
Wow what a surprise I never would’ve thought this was actually a thing 😑
To me the Arkham collection encompasses Origins, Asylum, City, Knight and even Blackgate. Yet what I'm reading is it is only Asylum, City and Knight and even then they arent the full complete games as there is still some downloading to be done.
All three were on sale on psn last month for $12 NZD As a bundle.. i feel sorry for the people that buy this
I'd rather pay $30 - $40 USD for physical bundle than 12 NZD for digital bundle. My house has been busted into before & since that incident , all my computers , storage devices , computer/game console software , game consoles , sports cards , bluray / 4k bluray , etc. have been store in fire / water resistant safes , all safes made to protect electronics , memory & software , may not be cheap , but it's still cheaper than everything being stolen. All safes are bolted to my floor & one thing that's never been stolen are my firearms since they've been locked inside of fire resistant safes & then locked inside of anothe fire resistant safe & then bolted to the floor. Safes protecting the firearms come to a total weight of 1,500 pounds before being loaded down with firearms , have separate safes for ammunition , not going to risk someone stealing my firearms & killing someone or themselves. May have gone off topic , but when I get talking about a topic , my ADD kicks my a** & I can't stop talking about the subject at hand or whatever I'm talking about & unfortunately any ADD meds they've tried me on have negative effects.
Keep that Blackgate bulls#!+ out of there
Agreed, its a Rocksteady collection, not Arkham collection without those games.
If they’re going to release something like this they might as well have included Batman: Arkham Origins as well Personally I enjoyed Origins over Knight
I'll go one further, Arkham Origins is the best of the series. Out of all the games Arkham Origins feels the most connected to the original Animated Batman series and the comic world with how it portrayed it's story. Arkham Asylum does this very well to. But Arkham City and Knight? Those two feel more disconnected from the source material to me. Maybe that's a good thing for some people. I however love it when playing Origins and Asylum, getting major nostalgia to wanna rewatch the Animated series xD
So much this,the X-mas atmosphere is very well done in Origins.
And once again Origins is overlooked. Fuck you Rocksteady, you give us that utterly disappointing finale with Arkham Knight and won't even remaster the only game in the series that did boss fights well.
Maybe because Rocksteady didn't make Origins, you fuckwit
So what? Rocksteady had another studio make it so they could focus on the main sequel at the time. It still clearly uses all of Rocksteady's mechanics, gameplay, and features. Also, this isn't a Rocksteady Batman Collection. It's called the Batman Arkham Collection. Origins is a part of the story. It should be included.
@Corndog Rocksteady did not make that decision. Warner did. I don't care what it's called. You still can't blame rocksteady for something that has nothing to do with them. Now get your flappy ass back to school!
Haha. Finally broke down and bought the ps hits version. Having a blast, but dammit. My timing is bad.
Now we're gonna get the individual games on ps plus.
No lie Knight was hot garbage. Batmobile ft Batman: Arkham Knight pissed me off.
People requested that the series could use the bat mobile as a playable segment,but they got carried away with it.
Got all the games for free with DLC on Steam back when they had he Arkham Knight fiasco.
The games were gifted by Warner Bros on Steam. https://venturebeat.com/201...
Origins too or bust
Is it coming to NA?
Fairly certain this already came out a couple years ago
Not a bad deal
So what is this? 4k remasters or just what's on the store?
I bought these games on a Steam sale for 3.49 each several years ago
Warner Brothers also own Origins. Why don’t they do a 4 pack?
Because for some stupid reason, it's always only the Rocksteady developed game.
If this included Arkham Origins along with its online multiplayer with actual netcode improvements I’d honestly consider buying this. Sucks in general how Arkham Origins keeps getting left out especially since it’s a very vital game in the series. You don’t see Bioshock 2 getting left out of the Bioshock Collection just because it had a different developer, yet fans continue being deprived of experiencing the entire Arkham franchise in an updated package on one platform.
Arkham series is my favorite VG series . I would rate them in order AK=AC>>>AA. Origin is trash, it's not from RS, done poorly by a noob studio, voice acting was shit, the world is empty, the boss fights are repetitive, adds nothing to the series, the only good thing about it is it was running smoothly from day 1.
So that’s what Rocksteady’s been working on?
I hope it includes Xbox one x enhancements for Arkham knight
Who cares? They’ve all been available on PS4 for ages now.
No switch version?
I may get it depending on the price , lost my copies of Arkham City & Arkham Asylum , my copy of Arkham Knight stopped working & may as well get this bundle they name a reasonable price.
Exactly if Warner Brothers Montreal gave Rocksteady the source code for Arkham Origins straight after Rocksteady finished off Arkham Knight Rocksteady could have had it released by now while thinking up their next game as Arkham Knight got released nearly 5 years ago & surely redoing the graphics in abetter enginge & trying to fix some of the bugs would not take that long I think if Warner Brothers had le Warner Brothers Montreal carry on with trying to fix Arkham Origins it would have been a better game.Obviously I am just guessing as I am not a developer so I dont really know how long it would take to fix.
What is the point of this. The arkham collection is constantly 7.99-9.99 and Arkham Knight is just as cheap.
Pro patch or one x enhanced? No? Then don’t waste my time!
Have they run out of money for their next game again?
