The changes are largely beneficial and extend across the majority of platforms, with PC owners getting some tasty PhysX-enhanced extras that further improve upon the game's already solid aesthetic. That said, the situation surrounding the Wii U version is somewhat less pleasing: there are a few more graphical compromises compared to 360 and PS3, while performance lags behind the other formats - not something we'd expect to see at this point in the console's life.

a b Vore, Brian (April 9, 2013). "May Cover Revealed: Batman: Arkham Origins". Game Informer. GameStop. Archived from the original on August 31, 2013 . Retrieved April 9, 2013. The series’ lone virtual reality game, Batman: Arkham VR is set shortly before the events of Arkham Knight. It’s a narrative-driven game focused on detective work as Batman tries to solve the murder of a close ally. Batman: Arkham Underworld is a mobile game that positions you as Gotham’s newest criminal mastermind, allowing you to command Batman villains such as Harley Quinn, The Riddler, Scarecrow, Mr. Freeze, and Killer Croc. It’s essentially a free-to-play Gotham gang recruiter, in which you build a criminal hideout, recruit henchmen, and do battle. Kevin Conroy reprises his role as Batman following the mainline Arkham trilogy. This younger Batman already has all his signature moves and gear, flies a fancy plane, and is on a first-name basis with pretty much every villain but The Joker. So at the cost of really selling the idea that these events happen prior to the other two games, Origins keeps the foundation of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City’s amazing combat intact, including every gadget in one form or another. (Mr. Freeze’s absence from the rogue’s gallery means the cryo-grenades are now concussion or glue grenades.) With series newcomers in mind, these brief plot synopses contain only mild spoilers such as broad plot points and character introductions. 1. Batman: Arkham Origins

Batman: Arkham Origins - the Digital Foundry verdict

Though originally set to release on May 26, 2023, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League has been delayed to February 2, 2024, with the devs explaining in a statement that they've, "made the tough but necessary decision to take the time needed to work on getting the game to be the best quality experience for players." So far, there has been no announcements of new Batman games in the works after this one. Kollar, Phillip (June 12, 2013). "A Tale of Two Batmen: The Dueling Philosophies of WB Montreal and Armature Studio". Polygon. Archived from the original on August 28, 2013 . Retrieved August 30, 2013. Out in the expanded and snow-covered open world, I found Gotham City beautiful but lifeless. In Arkham City, the excuse is that this part of town has been walled off and given to the criminals. Without that (admittedly far-fetched) scenario, the absence of any hint of civilian life makes Gotham feel eerily barren, especially next to Origins’ open-world peers and their populated streets. It may be the middle of the night on Christmas Eve, but streets teeming with nothing but decidedly un-jolly criminals are still weird. Arkham Asylum’s story was written by Paul Dino, whose long history with the franchise includes many writing credits on Batman: The Animated Series and Batman Beyond.

A mobile version of Arkham Origins was also released. While it plays much differently than its console counterpart — it’s a brawler developed by Mortal Kombat studio NeatherRealm — it hits the same narrative beats.Phillips, Tom (October 18, 2013). "Batman: Arkham Origins' Wii U and physical PC versions will launch later in Europe". Eurogamer. Archived from the original on October 21, 2013 . Retrieved October 18, 2013. Lastly, the new multiplayer mode present in the 360, PS3, and PC versions is completely absent from the Wii U game. It's a disappointing state of affairs overall, giving gamers little incentive to go for the Nintendo option over the established current-gen consoles. Wii U takes on Xbox 360 in this Arkham Origins comparison - and it's not the most flattering picture for the more modern Nintendo console. In addition to Scarecrow and Arkham Knight, the supporting cast includes Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, Penguin, Riddler, Two-Face, Robin, Commissioner Gordon, and Barbara Gordon. a b c Narcisse, Evan (August 31, 2013). "Batman's Next Portable Game Has Some Castlevania, Metroid and Mega Man". Kotaku. Archived from the original on September 2, 2013 . Retrieved September 1, 2013. Naturally, PC owners get visibly higher-resolution textures and normal maps, although the artwork on Batman's suit and skin doesn't appear quite as detailed compared to Arkham City. The use of higher-resolution depth-of-field and object blur effects are also present over the console versions, along with the inclusion of soft shadows and the addition of extra debris, objects, and alpha-based effects scattered across the environment. The level of ambient occlusion is stronger than the console versions too, with the PC's DirectX 11 enhanced HBAO implementation featuring a wider radius of coverage than the cheaper SSAO variant used on the 360, PS3, and Wii U.
