We already know quite a bit about the next Batman video game that will release later this fall, but Warner Bros. has announced that the collectors’ edition of Batman: Arkham Origins will be coming to the US after being initially revealed last week that it would be coming to European gamers as well.
The collectors’ edition is said to be available in limited quantities for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 when the game officially launches on October 25, and it will cost $120. What’s included in the bundle that’s worth your hard-earned cash? There’s a copy of the game along with a nine-inch statue of the Joker, as well as an 80-page hardcover artbook, two replicas of “evidence taken directly from the Gotham City Police Department crime lab,” a Batman wanted poster, a prototype schematic of the Batwing, an Anarky logo stencil, a photo of the Wayne family, and a glow in the dark map of Gotham City.
If that’s too much to fathom, then it’s probably worth it, especially if you’re a die-hard Batman fan. Furthermore, though, the collectors’ edition also includes the Assassin’s Intel Dossier, which includes files on the game’s eight villains — something fun that you can look over to learn more about who you’re fighting against.
Aside from the physical memorabilia, there’s also exclusive digital content, including the 1st Appearance Batman skin (a replica of Batman’s costume from his first appearance in Detective Comics #27 in 1939), and the Deathstroke Challenge Pack, which allows gamers to play as Deathstroke in all Arkham Origins Challenge maps, with two Deathstroke skins to go along with that.
US gamers will also get the Necessary Evil: Super-Villains of DC Comics documentary video, which is an overview of DC’s most notorious villains, and PlayStation 3 gamers will receive the Knightfall pack, which includes content based on the early 1990s’ Knightfall storyline.
