Last October, Batman Arkham Origins: Blackgate was released for the PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS, a spin-off developed by Armature Studio that amplified 2.5D gaming to new levels. Although, not as impressive as the original Batman: Arkham Origins, since the game falls apart after a few hours of gameplay, some fans of the franchise may still want to explore it on consoles.
The speculation is now over, Blackgate is officially confirmed by Warner Bros. for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and Windows PC.
A companion game to Batman: Arkham Origins, players can continue the storyline of the console version and discover more details of the Dark Knight’s past. Featuring stealth gameplay, free-flow combat, and Batman’s famed arsenal of gadgets, the genuine Arkham experience is reproduced in a deep, action-packed side-scrolling adventure.
Armature Studios will be doing the port for consoles and PC with a digital release date slated for April 2, 2014. Expect the price to be $15.99 (£15.99).
