Batman: Arkham Origins Collector's Edition unveiled

£79.99 Collector's Edition comes with a 30cm statue of Batman and The Joker.

by

Warner Bros. has unveiled the Batman: Arkham Origins Collector's Edition for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game.

The £79.99 edition of the game will come with a steelbook case, a 30 cm statue of Batman and The Joker, an 80-page artbook, and an Assassin's dossier, alongside DLC codes for the First Appearance skin pack and Deathstroke Challenge Pack.

PlayStation 3 owners will also receive the Knightfall skin. PC and Wii U owners will not get a Collector's Edition.

The Batman: Arkham Origins Collector's Edition will be exclusive to Amazon in the UK. Warner Bros. notes that it will announce the North American availability next week.

Batman: Arkham Origins is being developed by WB Games Montreal, as opposed to Arkham Asylum and Arkham City developer Rocksteady. 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.

This article was amended on 08/08 to clarify that it is WB Games Montreal developing Batman: Arkham Origins as opposed to Eidos Montreal.

You can get a few Batman graphic novels for the extra cost.

Why the hell are PC getting screwed over yet again for collectors editions???

Got screwed over on Arkham City and now Origins!

Does anyone give a fuck over what PC gamers want and are being treated like second/third class gamers.  Not on.

Not a bad looking edition for a relatively small price. I'll be thinking about getting this one.

Still can't get passed them changing the voice of B-Man. It was so cool they brought back the Animated Series Batman.

Got my fingers crossed for Rocksteady's prequel but not this cash-grab one.

Don't need the Collector's Edition at all. Hopefully the game is as good as the first 2 games.

I wish they would give Joker a rest. Yes, the Arkham movies were great, the Dark Knight movies were great...time to move on from Joker.

Overpriced and unnecessary, but it's look nice in comparison to other collector's editions I've seen on the market.

So if I buy this digitally can I print out that statue with a 3d printer?

I'm reading a lot of comments regarding PC physical sales and that has nothing to do with this. Some players like digital, other like physical and others (including me) like both depending on price, box art, bonuses... CEs interest comes from the physical goods mostly. Not having a CE for a certain platform doesn't save them any money or trouble. They usually make a limited number so it's not a sales issue. This is just a "we don't care" statement and is a really bad PR move towards the PC community. If it was against PS3, XBOX... it would be just as bad. Gamers should support each other and make publishers respect us as customers.

I'm buying that for sure. I bought the special editions for Asylum and City, and that statue looks badass.

@adward22 I wouldnt care if you steal CoD or some other crap but to steal about the only good licensed series is low

@Jungo_Farg i am pissed off about this too. but i got Arkham City on 360 and also gonna get this on 360. i hope it's a 3D compatible game like Arkham City was. as i don't have 3D capability on my PCi figured may aswell get it on 360. fingers crossed it is!

@Heinpienaar123 lol. Being able to hold out 6 months can really save people a ton of cash. I bought 6 games and spent 45$ during the Summer sale.

Wowowow calm it down for just one second! The multiplayer does actually look fun.

@Korvus85 No, Joker is mainly a tertiary character..... I believe the story goes, he's funding Black Mask into setting up a "one-night only" event where 7 assassins have a chance to kill Batman on Christmas Eve for a set amount of money.  Joker will have an influence in this game, but he won't be the main villain; he'll basically be a background character.

If it makes you feel any better, it looks like he's not the main focus this time around.

@TheEveryMan not really overpriced... have you seen other games edition like AC4 and Watch Dogs price tag.... 129.99 those are overpriced.. especially no steelbook and no art book.

@krystyla @Heinpienaar123 Wrong,  better prices only increases sales. More sales mean more money even if the price is lower. Besides, that's why games start expensive. Fools not willing to wait will pay more until the point the sales drop they will also drop the price to keep the money coming in.

During that period the new release is made to give something new and the whole process repeats itself.

@NbAlIvEr10000 I hope so but that's not stopping them from using him to sell Collector's Editions so I doubt they're that willing to put him on the back burner.

@Heinpienaar123 @krystyla he said he will never buy a game new again! If they dont sell the first batch at all there will never be a goty edition

Maybe because Joker is Batman's most famous or should that be infamous nemesis...
