Posted by Grey Sunday, March 20, 2011

Slated to released on October 18th, 2011 worldwide, the Dark Knight returns to the gaming world, in Batman: Arkham City. We take a look at the latest game play trailer, along with some of the cool promotional art and screenshots released thus far.

One of the most highly anticipated games of 2011, Batman: Arkham City is the sequel to 2009's Batman: Arkham Asylum, famously named as the "Most Critically Acclaimed Superhero Game" in the Guinness World Records, and more importantly, the "Game Of The Year" by The Daily Zombies.

We have previously discussed at length the premise of the game and how developer Rocksteady Studios dramatically elevate the scale of the sequel. Now have a taste of Arkham City yourself by checking out the first game play trailer of the game, entitled "This Ain't No Place for a Hero".

In other development, DC Comics has announced via their blog, The Source, the release of BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY, a six-issue miniseries that bridges the gap between the two games.

Here's the official solicitation info from DC's The Source:

Written by Batman: The Animated Series writer Paul Dini (who also penned both Arkham games) and drawn by Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City concept artist Carlos D’anda, BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY picks up one year after the original game, where former Arkham Warden turned newly elected Mayor of Gotham City Quincy Sharp has decided to close down the infamous institution. In its stead, he establishes “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, inmates can roam free and do whatever they want as long as they don’t try to escape. To run this urban prison, Sharp has appointed Dr. Hugo Strange, a man who knows that Bruce Wayne is Batman.

Each issue of the miniseries will be available day-and-date digitally worldwide for $2.99 each. These releases will alternate with 8-page digital-first interludes that will expand on the story included in the miniseries. Written by Dini and drawn by a variety of artists, these digital stories will focus on The Dark Knight’s many enemies as they vie for power in this new city within a city. Each eight-page digital-first interlude will be available for .99 cents, releasing in between issues of the miniseries, and will later be included in print in the BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY collected edition.

“The digital first stories offer a unique incentive for fans to experience interesting and exciting stories beyond the pages in the printed comic,” said Jim Lee, DC Comics Co-Publisher, “The additional pages will serve as interludes within the regular issues and won’t be necessary to follow the main story of the miniseries. Fans will also be able to read these interludes in print later, when we publish the collected edition.”

Read the comic before you play the game, and keep an eye out for the issue #1 variant cover, utilizing in-game graphics.

BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY will double-ship in its first month, with issues 1 & 2 landing in May.

As promised earlier, hit the jump to check out some of the awesome concept art, promotional graphic, along with new screenshots released by the official site of Batman: Arkham City.
