Batman: Arkham City is one of the most anticipated games of the year, and to capitalize on the hype, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment Australia naturally has a couple of goodies up its sleeves for those willing to spend a bit more.
The general Batman: Arkham City collector's edition will be available across multiple retailers, and it goes for A$149.95. Inside of the box, you'll find a copy of the game, early access to the Iceberg Lounge Challenge map, and the Batman: Dark Knight skin. Additional content that doesn't directly change the game includes a Batman statue, art book, four collectable cards, and a copy of the Batman: Gotham Knight film.
Now this is where it might get a bit confusing for consumers because both JB Hi Fi and EB Games also have their own unique special editions and incentives. The JB Hi Fi offering sees players getting exclusive access to the Tim Drake Robin skin to play in Challenge mode, two exclusive Challenge mode maps, and the Red Robin skin.
EB Games, on the other hand, has a slightly beefier offer, giving punters a limited edition steel case, one Challenge mode map, the 1970's Batman skin, and a copy of the Batman Under the Red Hood animated movie.
The good news is that both JB Hi Fi and EB Games are offering their unique editions for the same price as the regular game, which ranges in the mid- to high-A$90 mark, depending on which retailer you choose.
