"We did the trailer for the excellent first game, we did the trailer for the so-so last game, we're never gonna do a trailer for Origins, and now that Suicide Squad is out, it's finally time, not for the trailer you need, but for the trailer you deserve. BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY."

Game Information

Batman: Arkham City is a 2011 action-adventure game developed by Rocksteady Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Based on the DC Comics superhero Batman, it is the sequel to 2009's Batman: Arkham Asylum and the second installment in the Batman: Arkham series. In the main storyline, Batman is incarcerated in Arkham City, a huge new super-prison enclosing the decaying urban slums of Gotham City. He must uncover the secret behind Protocol 10, orchestrated by the facility's warden Hugo Strange. Meanwhile, the Joker is suffering from a potentially fatal disease caused by his previous consumption of the Titan formula.

The leading characters are predominantly voiced by actors from the DC Animated Universe, with Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill reprising their roles as Batman and the Joker respectively. There is a primary focus on Batman's combat and stealth abilities, detective skills, and gadgets that can be used in both combat and exploration. Arkham City expands Batman's arsenal and offers a more open world structure, allowing the player to complete side missions away from the primary storyline.

The game received critical acclaim, particularly for its narrative, character and world designs, soundtrack, and Batman's combat and navigation abilities. It was tied for the highest-rated video game of 2011 and was the recipient of several awards. It was followed by a 2011 spin-off mobile game, Batman: Arkham City Lockdown, and a 2012 Game of the Year edition containing all DLC. Sequels were released in October 2013 and June 2015.
