Over the course of two games, the Batman: Arkham franchise has solidified itself as one of the most critically acclaimed properties of this generation. Both instalments have proven that with a lot of love for the source material, licensed titles don't have to be horribly rushed, soulless productions – but without developer Rocksteady at...
Batman: Arkham Knight may have retreated to the bat cave till next year, but that doesn't mean the surly superhero is completely out of the fight.

Revenge is a dish best served cold
What’s cooler than being cool? That’s a question that you should probably pose to DC Comics antagonist Mr. Freeze, but it may be best to wait until he’s in a good mood.

The ice man cometh

Back to Bats
Batman: Arkham Origins has jumped ahead of Grand Theft Auto V to the summit of the UK sales charts.

There’s plenty of crash, bang, and wallop in this brand new Batman: Arkham Origins trailer, which shows off the content included in the PlayStation 3’s exclusive Knightfall Pack. The add-on features two snazzy new Batsuits – Knightfall Batman and Classic TV Series Batman – in addition to five bonus challenge...
Cooking with bat
How much action can you possibly cram into one trailer? That's a question Batman: Arkham Origins asks with its newest video, which shows our shadowy hero fending off the multiple assassins that will be hunting his head throughout the game. The new footage also introduces us to Firefly, a villain who's handy with a flamethrower...
Stash it in the Batcave
