Batman: Arkham City is Next Game Informer Cover
Game Informer magazine has just revealed the cover of their September issue, which will feature Batman: Arkham City, the game formerly known as Arkham Asylum 2. In fact, the issue will feature two covers, both of which are pictured below.
The cover confirms that we have Catwoman to look forward to, and thanks to some leaks, we know we can expect to see other classic Batman villains like Two-Face and Mr. Freeze. Now that the cover’s been revealed, Rocksteady has given out a little bit of information about the upcoming sequel, saying that Arkham City,
“builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City, the new maximum security ‘home’ for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds.”
The action this time takes place within the ‘heavily fortified’ walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City. If they represent this anything like the island in Batman Begins, I’ll be stoked to see it.
The release of Arkham City is now set for Fall 2011, so don’t get too excited yet – it’s still about a year away.
