Australia to get Special Edition of 'Arkham City'

By Jonathan Barnes, 5 years ago
Australia usually seems to get the short end of the gaming stick: high prices, restrictive censors, and wallabies talking smack on Xbox LIVE are just the beginning of their problems. Fortunately, the good folks at Rocksteady are sympathetic to the cause and are sending the sweet "Steelbook Edition" of their upcoming Batman: Arkham City to EB Games stores exclusively in Australia.

The "Steelbook Edition" of Arkham City is set to include the following:

* Batman Arkham City Steel Book Case
* "Joker Carnival" Challenge Map DLC
* 70’s Batsuit skin DLC
* Batman Under the Red Hood DVD

The "Steelbook Edition" of Batman: Arkham City will cost Aussies $98, the same price as the regular edition of the game at other retailers. Gamers not in Australia need not fear, however, as we're getting a collector's edition, too.

Batman: Arkham City will be gliding into stores on October 18th in North America, October 19th in Australia and October 21st in Europe.
