Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment today announced that Batman: Arkham City will receive a “Game of the Year Edition”. The expanded version of the award-winning blockbuster videogame developed by Rocksteady Studios is scheduled for release in the UK on 7th September, and is one of the highest reviewed titles of 2011!
With the Game of the Year Edition, fans can extend the multi-award winning experience as the Dark Knight with Harley Quinn’s Revenge, the final chapter in Batman: Arkham City that adds more than two hours of fresh gameplay to the critically-acclaimed interactive title as well as all five previously released downloadable content packs.
