Batman: Arkham Asylum for Mac allays disappointment over Arkham City
Not all fans are as excited as Rocksteady would like with what they’ve seen of Batman: Arkham City, but the one thing everyone agrees on is that the original game was wonderful, and virtually without a flaw. So it is with with just excitement that Macintosh users learned that they will no longer be left out of the party. Feral Interactive announced the “action adventure” (game) Batman: Arkham Asylum will be released for the Mac on Thursday, October 13th, 2011. The game puts players in the role of the caped crusader who is trapped in Arkham Asylum with The Joker and Gotham City’s most notorious villains.
Developed by Rocksteady Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment with DC Entertainment for game consoles and Windows PC, Batman: Arkham Asylum features an original story by Paul Dini, Batman writer and five-time Emmy Award-winner. Batman: Arkham Asylum pushes the envelope for action, adventure and superhero games, delivering a dark, atmospheric and entertaining adventure.
In Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman finds himself trapped inside the confines of Gotham’s psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane, Arkham Asylum. The Joker has set a trap for The Dark Knight and has conspired with the deranged inmates to destroy Gotham. Gamers will move in the shadows, instigate fear amongst their enemies and confront The Joker and Gotham City’s most notorious villains including Harley Quinn, Bane, Killer Croc, Poison Ivy and Scarecrow, who have taken over the asylum.
This unique, dark and atmospheric adventure game puts players right in the action as they take the role of The Dark Knight and use a wide variety of moves and gadgets to foil The Joker’s demented scheme.
Adding to the authenticity of the game are veteran animated Batman voice talents Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy, who reprise their roles as The Joker and Batman respectively
