With all the DLC & Unreal 4.
At last, Warner Bros. has announced that 'Arkham Asylum' and 'Arkham City' will be made available on the PS4 and Xbox One. The two Unreal 3 titles plus their DLC are being being brought over to Unreal 4 and given some visual upgrades by Virtuous. Both games will be included under the title 'Batman: Return to Arkham.'
Many of the visual upgrades will come via the Unreal 4 transition, which should mean better environment streaming, lighting, and texture mipping. Likewise, texture resolution can be bumped up all around (and tweaked in spots). Expect character models (especially for villains and heroes) to be stepped up to a degree.
'Batman: Return to Arkham' is being priced at $49.99 and is set to release on July 26th. For me, 'Arkham Asylum' is the true classic, though the above trailer does show certain parts of 'Arkham City' that are memorable. It's worth noting that 'Arkham Origins' has not been mentioned at all, and once again, I would point out that that game's multiplayer component is likely holding it back.
