Holy release date, Batman! While we’re knee deep in PAX East goodness, Rocksteady comes along and finally gives us the information we’ve been waiting for — probably from their nice comfortable office chairs, those bastards.
Batman: Arkham City will hit shelves on October 18, 2011 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in the US. Meantime, Australia will get the game on the 19th, and European gamers will be able to purchase it on the 21st.
To celebrate the official launch date, Rocksteady has released a new packet of screenshots. They aren’t much, but the big news to take away here is that Batman: Arkham City is coming on October 18, 2011. Get pumped!
