Batman: Arkham City Collector's Edition Revealed

For a few bucks more, check out the extra things you can get.

Batman: Arkham City is a game that pretty much everyone is eagerly waiting for. While some may have already pre-ordered it through their retailer of choice, today Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced the collector's edition.

The game will be released on October 18, 2011 and there will be limited quantities of the collector's edition going for $99. It will include a custom Batman statue produced by Kotobukiya, a collectible art book, early access to the Iceberg Lounge Challenge Map and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns skin, Batman: Arkham City album from WaterTower Music including original songs by hit artists, available via digital redemption, Bonus DC Universe animated original movie, Batman: Gotham Knight and four collectible cards.

Do you plan on springing for the collector's set or is the regular version enough for you? We will try to get new information this week at San Diego Comic-Con.

Better than Batman arkham asylums collectors edition

Posted by craigbo180

Regular edition for me. I don't really care for any of that other stuff, the Batman statue does look cool though.

Posted by Crazy Pan

Lol give me a used version of the game and I'll be happy.

CE for me, got Collectors Edition of BMAA when it was released, so I don't know why I'd get the Standard.

OK, better start saving

oooooooh yeah baby

Wait...this collector's edition is going to be $30 more than the stand alone game?   That means folks will be spending 43% more money for a statue, DVD and album.  I guess if you never bought "Batman: Gotham Knights" and really want to own the DVD then this could be worthwhile; otherwise, it doesn't seem to make much sense.

Meh, just gonna get the regular edition.

Posted by Bestostero

This is very underwhelming, but the game itself will probably be overwhelming lol
 
Probably gonna stick to standard edition at Best Buy for the Robin pre order bonus.

@Darthtravis: Statues like the one included tend to go for around $20 or more in my experience, which is why I've never gotten into collecting anything other than the comics. They're expensive enough. But, I love me some Arkham Asylum, and I bet I'll love this one too, so I'm more than willing to give Rocksteady some extra cash so they can keep making awesome Batman games.

I think the statue is kind of rad, I already own a copy of Gotham Knights which is signed by a whole bunch of people that worked on in including Bruce Timm (I found it randomly in a used DVD store in Seattle and bought it for ten bucks) so that doesn't really interest me. The CD could be cool I guess, and the TDKR skin could be cool (I wish they had a screen cap of it).

All in all, I bought the last Special Edition like an idiot, so I'll probably do the same with this one.

I'll settle and be throughout content with just the game after a few broken jawbones.

Posted by HT101

I may buy this edition but I'm not sure since it's 100 bucks for it.

Posted by maxicere

WooW

Posted by Zuckuss_02

So the DLC included in this is just "early access"? Meaning everyone else will be able to get this content later on.

Posted by Loki9876

lol i just preordered the regular version I go on comic vine and there is a CE.

Posted by DocGroove

Nice statue, but I'm not sure if I will get the CE just for that.

Ooooooh! We're going to have so much fun, Bats. WHOO HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!

Posted by Dracade102

I'll buy this version if it gets good review.

Posted by StarKiller809

I'm going to buy the other one. The stuff in this one sounds cool but I don't really need it. I just want the game.

Posted by EdwardWindsor

alreagy got Gotham Knights otherwise i would of brought this.

Posted by danhimself

I don't know....that statue looks pretty awesome

Posted by U R Sofa King We Todd Did

there is not a thing there that makes me want to spring an extra $40. only collectors editions ive sprung for are Arkham Asylum(for the notebook and batarang) and infamous 2(for the backpack, extra downloads, and Drake 3 voucher). all i want extra so far from arkham city is robin.

Posted by FadeToBlackBolt

Depends on how bad Australia decides to anally rape its customers with the price hike. I'll $150, but anymore and they can go die.

Posted by Utandi

Looks nice. But i think i'll get just the normal version of the game.

Yeah, my CE Batarang almost broke.
 
If you guys can actually wait 3 months, the Collector's Edition prices always drop $30 sometimes $40.
 
I did that for games like Mortal Kombat Kollector's Edition, DCUO CE, InFamous 2 CE, and Killzone 3 Helghast Edition as well, got them all between $59.99 - $69.99

That statue does look badass.

Posted by blur1528

Gotham Knight? I wish it woulda came with Year One.

Pretty much this.

Thirty extra dollars should guarantee the utility belt, batarangs and working smoke bombs.

Posted by scarlettexashes

I really could have done without the artbooks and such (I mean, I do own a massive pile of comics. I have enough art to last me a life time). I would have been sold if the CE just gave me the statue and all the bloody downloadable/exclusive characters from every single retailer. 

Edited by Dark_Phoenix00x

Regular for me. CE rarely ever catch my interest for the price

Posted by Obsurity

I bought the first game's collector edition it was alright. The only reason why it was cool was I got the game a week before the release date... Doubt I'll get this one
Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Sure would be nice to have...even if I dont have he money (or the video game console) to have such a thing. But it does look awesome!

Posted by GothamBat

I already have Gotham Knights, but I'll still probably get this anyway.

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

the special edition looks awesome but it is probably a lot of money

I didn't know they drop that much. Thanks for the information

That small statue looks good:D Reminds me of the 'black and white' series they released back then.

Posted by WonderBoy1132

pretty.. pretty. : )

Posted by Kastiel

Could be better but there are worse collector editions.

Posted by shawn87

I will be all over that collectors edition!!

Posted by UnsolvedParadox

I will be giving them all of my monies.

Posted by Ryonslaught

This on wii U makes 2012 a rocking years! XD

Posted by Havik86

$100 isn't too bad. I think that's what the Arkham Asylum Collector's Edition cost. The only thing I'm not a fan of with this pack is the "The Dark Knight Returns" character skin. Personally I would have liked to see the costume from The Dark Knight/The Dark Knight Rises used since I think it's a little more appropriate. Of course it could be that that particular skin is already set as an unlockable in the game (God I hope that's the case). Other than that, the whole pack is kick-ass.

Edited by Eyz

Alright I guess....
 

I guess I'll be okay missing this one out.
I mean the challenge/survival map pack is...well...alright.
Skins/music...well...not much interested...
The animated flicks, 'got them all already!
And the rest isn't that incredible, besides that awesome Batman statue, which I tend not to collect, so...

 

I liked the first game's Batarang with the original collector edition though!
