Xbox LIVE Arcade Games

This title was a bit of a surprise as it was due to be released tomorrow. Don the black cape and take to the streets of Arkham once again.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition
Size: 2.65 GB
Price: US$19.99 / £15.99 / €19.99 / AU$26.95
Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edition amplifies the 2.5-D game with new maps, enemy encounters, difficulty levels, batsuits, and enhanced visuals. A companion game to Batman: Arkham Origins, players can continue the storyline of the console version and discover more details of the Dark Knight’s past. Featuring stealth gameplay, free-flow combat, and Batman’s famed arsenal of gadgets, the genuine Arkham experience is reproduced in a deep, action packed side-scrolling adventure.
