Developed by Rocksteady Studios, Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City, the new maximum security home for all of Gotham Citys thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds. Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, this highly anticipated sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.
For those who loved Arkham Asylum (which is pretty much everyone) this game will be the perfect sequel to keep players happy. This sequel takes place 6 months after the events of Arkham Asylum and Warden "Sharpie" Sharp has become mayor of Gotham City. He has decided to cut off a part of Gotham to function as "Arkham City" hence the title of the game with each major super villain from the extensive Batman universe having an area dedicated to their gang. Batman of course, doesnt like this and heads into Arkham City to clean things up.
