I’ll start with the good news. We finally have a fixed date for the PC version of Batman: Arkham City. Now to the bad news. It’s a full month away.
On today of all days, when the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions launch across North America and just three days before the UK launch, Warner Brothers have confirmed that PC gamers will need to wait until November 18 to go hands on with The Dark Knight’s latest crime fighting capers. Yikes.
I do of course need to remind myself that once the PC version does arrive, we’ll be getting RockSteady’s lead version of the game, packed with more tweaks and features than the Batmobile. If Arkham Asylum’s PC performance is the standard for which they’re aiming, then the wait will certainly be worth it, and frankly it’s nice to hear about a delay that ultimately benefits gamers rather than the DRM or anti-piracy nonsense we’re usually served in such circumstances. And it’s not like I don’t already have enough games to play, right? RIGHT..?
Hmm. Waiting sucks, doesn’t it?
