The story for Arkham City takes place one year after the events of Arkham Asylum. Quincy Sharp, former warden of Arkham Asylum, has taken credit for stopping the Joker, and used that notoriety to become mayor of Gotham City. As neither Arkham nor Blackgate Prison are in any condition to hold inmates, Sharp buys out a large section of Gotham's slums and arms the perimeter with private military contractors from a group called Tyger in order to create "Arkham City". The prisoners are brought into Arkham City and are given free rein, as long as they do not attempt escape. To oversee the city, Sharp uses psychiatrist Hugo Strange who appears to have his own secret agenda for the city. Batmanmaintains a vigil over the city, worried that the situation may get out of hand. Part of the setup for "Arkham City" was contained in plans in a hidden room in Sharp's office in Arkham Asylum.


















Batman: Arkham City is set to be released on October 21st, later this year!

I can't wait for this game. Penguin, Joker, Grundy, Two face, the Tyger guards and other villains. I can deal without calender man though

Batman would of had absolutely NO tolerance for the London rioters - now that should be DLC
SmokinIndo - 8/17/2011, 4:14 PM
This is what Nolan's films could be like if they didn't try to be so realistic.
LucasMend - 8/17/2011, 4:14 PM

Silence1453 - 8/17/2011, 4:36 PM
7th picture in that seems like a bane-ish mask.

@Silence1453
No, dude. Bane looks like this, remember? lol


@JackDexx
Well said, man. This is what a Batman movie SHOULD look like. I think you're right about us being buds. haha
theperm - 8/17/2011, 5:13 PM
Lol, i never thought this thought would be in my head, but Schumachers Mr. Freeze looks better than Nolan's Bane.
soforizo - 8/17/2011, 5:38 PM
DAMN, this Batman universe looks a hell lot better than Nolanverse. Feels out there but I like it! I'm just not sure what director could bring us a real Batman like this.
superbatspiderman - 8/17/2011, 6:35 PM
Why is everyone cracking on Nolan all of a sudden? This is a video game bot a movie so stop comparing it to Nolan's movies. This game does look pretty sweet though. I want this game.

R888 - 8/17/2011, 7:04 PM
^^^^^

Yes I m wondering that too

STOP COMPARING EVERYTHING WITH THE MOVIE

Mr Freeze looks badass, hopefully nolan would include extra scene with victor and sets him up for the next villian.
soforizo - 8/17/2011, 8:02 PM
"Why is everyone cracking on Nolan all of a sudden?"

Maybe cuz we want a Batman who isn't ashame of its comics origins. And definitely, because such a Batman is more badass than what we've been getting.

Shadowelfz - 8/17/2011, 8:44 PM
Looks awesome. Except for blond Talia I love the art direction of this game.
skot888 - 8/17/2011, 10:42 PM
Mr. Freeze looks like Mickey Rourke!!!
Ivy182 - 8/17/2011, 11:22 PM
This game is going to be COOL!!
technodrome518 - 8/18/2011, 12:06 AM
CHILL!
FriendlyNeighborhoodSpidey - 8/18/2011, 1:01 AM
Josh, you are getting VERY close to #1 on the Hall of Fame. Is that why you make so many polls and stuff?
FriendlyNeighborhoodSpidey - 8/18/2011, 1:07 AM
Anyway, LOOKS AWESOME. I want Batman's costume to look like this in a movie. Heck, almost everyone is near perfect in this.
VictorHugo - 8/18/2011, 4:33 AM
What killed the dinosaurs?

DEE ICE AGEEEEEEE.
plasticman - 8/18/2011, 11:41 AM
@ CovertAvenger- I agree, he looks a lot like Schwartzy.

I just want to know why I can't play as Plasticman. I really want to play with mysel....oh......nevermind.
Ryguy88 - 8/18/2011, 12:07 PM
Indoraptor, you are right, if Nolan's films didn't try to be realistic they would be unrealistic.
tricklove187 - 8/18/2011, 3:33 PM
It's the hockey team from hell!
ThatFan - 8/18/2011, 5:24 PM
