How much longer must we wait with great anticipation for Batman Arkham Knight to hit retail? Unfortuantely longer than we originally anticipated. Hold onto your controllers folks and find out the latest on the Batman Arkham Knight release date below and share your thoughts after the JUMP!
Rocksteady has finally announced the new release date for the highly anticipated final installment in their hit Arkham series, Batman: Arkham Knight. The game after initially being delayed from October 14, 2014 was expected to hit stores sometime in January 2015, but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore as the new release date has been revealed to be June 2, 2015.
Even though the wait is over 9 months now, it looks like Rocksteady is really taking every precaution to assure that they deliver the best product they can, which should be welcome news to all fans of the series.
Along with the announcement of new release date came the announcement of two special editions for the game: a Batmobile Edition, which comes with a fully transformable Batmobile statue, and a Limited Edition, which comes with a 12″ Batman statue. Both editions will come with a special Steelbook case, an art book, an issue of the Batman: Arkham Knight comic book, and three exclusive New 52 character skins.
The Limited Edition will be available for $99.99 in the U.S. and the Batmobile Edition will be available for $199.99. Both special editions will be exclusive to the PS4 & Xbox One. You can see previews for both below!
