BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT Release Date and Collectors Editions Revealed

Having originally been slated for an October 14th release date, fans must have been disappointed when Batman: Arkham Knight was pushed back to 2015. I know I was. Luckily however Rocksteady and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have finally given us a release date, June 2nd 2015. The game is set to be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, with there also being two different collectors editions, Batman: Arkham Knight Limited Edition, and Batman: Arkham Knight Batmobile Edition. Both editions will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, with the Limited Edition also being available on PC, but only in Europe, Australia and New Zealand. arkham-knight Batman: Arkham Knight Limited Edition will come in a Limited Edition Steelbook, with the package containing a 80 page art book, limited edition DC Comics Batman: Arkham Knight #0 comic book, three unique character skins from the New 52, and a Batman memorial statue. This edition is available for €99.99 (Europe) and £74.99 (UK) on PC and $99.99 (North America), €119.99 (Europe) and £89.99 (UK) on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Batman Arkham Knight Limited Edition Batman: Arkham Knight Batmobile Edition will include the exact same as the Limited Edition, but instead of the Batman memorial statue, you get a transformable Batmobile statue produced by Triforce. This edition is available for $199.99 (North America), €199.99 (Europe) and £169.99 (UK), though will only be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Batman Arkham Knight Batmobile Edition So what are your thoughts on the new release date, and Batman: Arkham Knight in general? I know I for one am eager for this to be released, as though I don’t expect it to surpass the awesomeness that was Batman: Arkham City, I have every faith that it’ll beat the slightly disappointing performance of Batman: Arkham Origins. As for these collectors editions, these look a thing of beauty, and I know if I have the extra cash I’ll be getting one or another. Anyway that’s enough from me, what are you, my fellow fanboys thoughts?

I am a nerd, and nerds are cool. Why? Because they get to go to magical places, and enjoy wonderous stories that could never happen in real life. In particular I've always had a keen interested in comics, having accumulated a vast collection over the many years. I eventually decided to utilise my vast knowledge of comics as well as my many opinions and become a review. This is were UTF came in, as after spotting my blog reviews they offered me a spot on their elustrius review team. One that I have been more than joyous to fill and have loved being a part of ever since.

    Man, I wish there was a way i could get both the batmobile and the statue in one set. Maybe i’ll be able to find someone selling the Batmobile by itself on bluray after it’s released.

      Maybe. They both are cool. Though I think I’ll be getting the Limited Edition myself.

    “Batman memorial statue”… did someone just give the game away about the ending of the series?

    • John McCubbin

      Might just be in regard to the series itself.
