The October issue of PC Gamer details the extra bells and whistles featured in Rocksteady’s already impressive looking sequel.


Confirmation of 3D support and PhysX enhanced effects for the PC version of Batman: Arkham City has surfaced in the latest issue of PC Gamer.

Snippets of the article have been posted on the Arkham City UK forum.

“Thanks to the high-altitude gliding and swinging, the depth effects of 3D really stand out in Arkham City, though it does make a dark game look that much darker,” noted PC Gamer.

Alongside the 3D effects – for which you’ll need the pre-requisite 3D monitor, glasses and decent GPU – are the enhanced PhysX effects.

“In [the courthouse battle], the not-so-subtle PhysX enhancement causes a wooden wall to splinter as inmates are flung against it.”

Added extras or not, the game looks stunning. It’s set to launch on PC, 360 and PS3 on October 19 in the US, October 19 in Australia and October 21 in Europe.

Thanks, Maximum Payne
