DC Comics' Dark Knight is relegated to the shadows for an extra week before swooping onto the PC.
While console gamers have been playing Batman: Arkham City for weeks, would-be PC players have had to patiently wait for that version's November 15 release date. They'll have to wait a little longer, as Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced that the caped crusader's PC outing has been pushed a week to November 22 in North America.
The publisher also specified international dates, saying Arkham City will hit Australia on Nov. 23, France and Benelux on Nov. 24, and other European territories on Nov. 25. No reason was given for the delay.
Like its predecessor, Arkham City drops Batman in the confines of an unconventional prison. But where Arkham Asylum stuck players in the halls and courtyards of a mental hospital overrun with the Joker's goons and allies, Arkham City deposits them in a sprawling neighborhood of Gotham City that has been walled off to contain the criminal element.
Under the watchful eye of "warden" Dr. Hugo Strange, who knows Batman's secret identity, inmates of Arkham City are free to do anything they want short of attempting escape. In addition to Strange, the game will feature Batman villains like Two-Face and the Joker.
