WATCH: Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate deluxe edition gets a launch trailer

April 1st, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Previously only available as a handheld version, it was announced in February that Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate would be making its debut on consoles this April. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has now debuted the launch trailer for the game.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition brings the content of Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate to console and PC with enhanced high-definition 2.5-D graphics, a new map & hint system for improved navigation and objective tracking, 5.1 surround sound, a fully voiced narrative and a captivating storyline. In addition to all previous released suits, players will be able to unlock the exclusive Zero Year Batsuit skin by registering for or signing into a Warner Bros. ID account.

After gang-fueled uprisings occur within the walls of Blackgate Prison, Batman is called in to restore order and put an end to the rebellion before the chaos implodes. As the story progresses, players will explore deep inside the bowels of this remote island penitentiary and discover what happened after the events of Batman: Arkham Origins and learn more details of the Dark Knight’s past.

Fans will be able to purchase the game beginning April 1st on the PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE Marketplace, and Steam for $19.99. The game will be coming to Nintendo’s eShop on April 17th.
