Batman: Arkham Origins Collector's Edition confirmed for North America

$120 premium bundle coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 includes 9" Joker statue, 80-page art book, glow-in-the-dark map of Gotham City.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced a Batman: Arkham Origins Collector's Edition for North America, Australia, and New Zealand.

The bundle, available only for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, will sell for $120. A European version was announced last week.

The Batman: Arkham Origins Collector's Edition features a 9" Joker statue with LED effects, as well as an 80-page artbook, a Batman Wanted Posted, and a Batwing prototype schematic. In addition, the bundle features a glow-in-the-dark map of Gotham City, a Wayne family photo, and an Assassin's intel dossier.

The premium bundle also packs in various digital offerings, including the 1st Appearance Batman skin, the Deathstroke challenge pack, and a copy of Necessary Evil: Super-Villains of DC Comics, a feature-length documentary narrated by Lord of the Rings actor Christopher Lee. The movie will only be available in North American versions of the collector's edition.

The PlayStation 3 version of the Batman: Arkham Origins Collector's Edition will also include the Knightfall pack as an exclusive.

Batman: Arkham Origins is being developed by WB Games Montreal, not series creator Rocksteady Studios. The game's recently announced multiplayer component is being handled by Brink developer Splash Damage.

Batman: Arkham Origins will be released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC on October 25. PlayStation Vita and 3DS game Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate will also release on that day.

This looks very cool, but for the Batman: Arkham games I always end up regretting not waiting until the GOTY edition comes out. I know it doesn't come with all the extra goodies the collector's edition has, but for the same price of the regular game, you get all the dlc. What to do? What to do?

lol, down in aus, we get both the european and Us edition, but i have already preordered the uk collectors edition, and i will probably buy the us one later down the road on ebay, but that statue does look awesome, but as much as i want it, i have to consider my wallet

Oh man..I am going to end up with all this game junk filling my home.. argh! Stop now or forever I will buy 'collectors' editions of games.

I really want this because it has a lot of cool stuff; I just don't want to spend $120 for a video game. If it was $85 max I would definitely purchase it.

Looks cool...but I think for the price...you should get ALL DLC once it's available (if any)!  I bet they would sell A LOT more copies if that were to happen!!

The CE items are kinda cool, but not enough DLC, my shelves are crowded enough without one more awesome but clunky looking statue...The AC pack had the statue, skins, the catwoman pack, Gotham knights movie and I think Batman: Black and White. I lost the latter,so I didn't see it...but still a nice value added purchase. I'd rather see more skins, game content than stuff I'm going to read once and forget about. My regular copy is on reserve, of course...looking forward to it.

Include a tungsten-carbide batarang and we might have a deal.

The Arkham Assylum one came with a Batarang, if I can't wear the goodies or throw the goodies I don't want 'em. The soundtrack for Arkham City was okay though.

I am going to pre-order this now as the price is not that bad compared to some others that I dished money out for in the past year or so.

Wow. So I was very interested in this. I think the collectors edition sounds awesome. BUT, something else totally got me. I guess I've been out of the loop because one thing i DIDN'T know was that the new batman game isn't made by the same as the first two. I was going to reserve this but now I think I'll wait for release and review before I buy into this. Besides how often do you see the uber special edition of these games on some huge discount sale at gamestop or best buy some 8-12 months after they've been out? Besides I can almost get 2 new consoles games for that price, or like 10+ games on Steam.

What lil_jon86 said, these collector's/special edition packages are getting too expensive. My last special edition was Grand Theft Auto IV. It came with just enough goodies and only cost me $99.99. Perfect price. Let's not go above that.

wtf every collectors, and limited edition cost 120 to 180 what happened to 80 and 100?

weak i want the euro version the statue is way better. oh well save my cash and get the reg ver. in my opinion the 1st collectors edition was the best with the bat batarang

Collectors editions are reaching unprecedented levels of ridiculousness these days. Only thing they haven't included here is a box of exclusive, glowing blue Batman condoms.

hope it doesn't come with the insane amount of bugs and issues as city because that was an experience for PC.

This looks cool. Not sure if I want to pay $120 though. I cannot wait for this game. I just finished my platinum trophy for Arkham City this week! What a game!

Statue looks cool, but I still would rather buy two new release games for the price of this collectors edition.

God look at all that crap. Remember when they used to just sell us games?

This looks like a true collectors edition, not that bullshit of including "game codes" for things that should be included in the game since the game is out.

@xaviermf I waited on the GOTY for both the previous ones, though for Arkham City, it was made easier to do so as protest over the online-pass gating of Catwoman (which was undone in GOTY as part of Warner's move away from the practice).

This is almost certainly a better one to wait until next year for.

@Chefjase I was gonna ask what the hell you were talking about, AC didnt come with all that, then I opened the drawer under the statue and I saw the stuff I had totally forgotten about since I hadnt opened it since I first got it. =P And it only comes with the Gotham Knights movie, the other CD you are thinking about is the soundtrack.

@lil_jon86 Yeah.. it's getting way to high now and some of these collector editions aren't even worth the price. This one isn't too bad, but if you already have both games, why bother?

19James89
19James89

@lil_jon86 They want more money, they feel that is a great selling price and people will lap it up and enjoy these features/items and they make and everyone is happy as a result.

@StonerDemon hahaha  


they thought about it, but then they realized what would the nerds do with condoms?... maybe make some balloon animals

@mikemaj82 @07wintert  then quite simply don't reply to things you don't understand. and there is nothing wrong with how wrote it. i made reference to PC. clearly you and many others on here just look to either annoy people or have social issues. 

mikemaj82

@07wintert @mikemaj82 With the way you write run-on sentences and don't punctuate or capitalize correctly, I can't tell what the heck you're talking about!

@SgTFuzzy-18 @07wintert  

i'm confused clearly you are someone who is looking for trouble on here or an idiot. but i think you just said that batman arkham city for pc has no bugs and has never had any issues. if this is what you mean you seriously do not not want to comment anymore.

or are you just one of these people who is stuck on consoles and doesn't know what a real game looks like. trying playing one in max settings on a radeon 7950 or better.

problem with this site is people like you who think they can just comment with spam and childish antics because it is full of little kids. your properly a 14 year old virgin obese who is talking to someone far older and wiser.
