Batman: Arkham Knight Swoops Back On To Steam; Previous Games Free For Current Owners


Batman: Arkham Knight finally returned to Steam yesterday, after being pulled from the service due to numerous bugs and performance issues. To celebrate the game’s long-awaited re-launch on PC, Warner Bros. have announced that everyone who buys (or already owned) Arkham Knight on PC prior to November 16 will get free copies of every previous entries in the series.

In case you need a refresher on which games that covers, the following are included in the promotion:

  • Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY
  • Batman: Arkham City GOTY
  • Batman: Arkham Origins
  • Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate

If you’re wondering about when exactly the four games will be made available to you, Warner Bros. said that “we’re actively working with our partners at Valve to make this happen as soon as we can, so watch your Steam Library. We are aiming to deliver all of the games by December.”

But that’s not all, folks. As an additional thank you to PC players for patiently awaiting the game’s re-arrival on Steam, Rocksteady are developing an additional slice of DLC: the “Community Challenge Pack.” They’ve yet to say what exactly will be included in the update, but have stated that PC players that own the game on Steam will receive access to the additional content one week before consoles.
