Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City, the new maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds. Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, this highly anticipated sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.

The Batman: Arkham Asylum sequel, Arkham City, was actually officially announced during the 2009 Spike VGA awards. Despite that, the game’s appearance this year is being billed as Batman: Arkham City’s “World Premiere” and reveals a new foe for the Bruce Wayne, Dr. Hugo Strange.

Arkham City is due for release on PS3, 360 and PC in autumn 2011.
