Coveted CE off the table.
'Batman; Arkham Knight' is only days away from release, and its most obvious feature over its the series' prior installments is the addition of the drivable Batmobile to the openworld setting.
Having played the game, there is no doubt that the transforming Batmbolie is a difference makes, and one that isn't merely lifted from 'GTA.' (Just hold L2 to to see why.)
Unfortunately, the game's expensive, and long ago sold Batmobile themed CE, the 'Batman: Arkham Knight' Batmobile Edition has been cancelled by publisher Warner Bros. just days ahead of the promised released date. The cancellation comes with a refund and offer of free DLC (as well as more retailed specific offers).
From Warner Bros.,
