Batman: Arkham City swoops onto PC November 15

The Dark Night returns to PC next month sporting Games for Windows branding; arrives three days later in the UK.


The world's greatest detective may be able to take on countless goons at once, but landing simultaneously on three different platforms is too much to handle, even for the caped crusader. While Batman: Arkham City launched today on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has confirmed the Games for Windows version for November 15 in the US. European PC players will have to wait three more days for the game's release on November 18.

Batman stands for virtues like punching dudes in the back of the head.

Like its predecessor, Arkham City drops Batman in the confines of an unconventional prison. But where Arkham Asylum stuck players in the halls and courtyards of a mental hospital overrun with the Joker's goons and allies, Arkham City deposits them in a sprawling neighborhood of Gotham City that has been walled off to contain the criminal element.

Under the watchful eye of "warden" Dr. Hugo Strange, who knows Batman's secret identity, inmates of Arkham City are free to do anything they want short of attempting escape. In addition to Strange, the game will feature Batman villains like Two-Face and the Joker.
