Batman: Arkham Asylum is one of the best games to grace the PC in the past few years. It's no wonder, then, that we're rather excited about the arrival of the next chapter in the franchise, Batman: Arkham City. The Dark Knight was scheduled to rise again on October 18, but that release date now only applies to console versions of the title; PC gamers won't get in on the action until some time in November. Ugh.
To be fair, the PC version of Arkham City promises a number of enhancements you won't get to enjoy on consoles. PhysX support is included, of course, and folks with dorky glasses and expensive monitors will be able to experience the game in pseudo 3D. If the original is any indication, the new Batman game will probably be best experienced on the PC... if you can endure the wait.
No reason has been given for the delay, but I have to admit that I'm not all that bent out of shape about it. Rage is due out on October 4, and Serious Sam 3 will become available on the 18th, Arkham City's original launch date. With Battlefield 3 scheduled for the following week, PC gamers will have a hard enough time keeping up without Batman in the mix.
