The Batman: Arkham Origins Collector’s Edition has had its veil removed today as Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment officially announced what fans have been waiting for.
We first caught word of the Collector’s Edition through a leak in mid-July and thankfully the Batman: Arkham Origins CE is exactly the same as the image that was leaked early.
Available in limited quantities from October 25th, 2013 for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the European Collector’s Edition comes with the following:
- Exclusive Arkham Origins highly detailed premium statue featuring Batman & The Joker
- 80-page, full-color hardcover artbook
- Assassin’s Intel Dossier, including files on the eight assassins, as well as Black Mask’s contract
- 1st Appearance Batman Skin DLC
- Deathstroke Challenge Pack DLC – Usable throughout all the Arkham Origins Challenge maps and also includes two bonus challenge maps and two bonus Deathstroke Skins
- Exclusive 3D Metal Pack
- The PS3 edition will also include the Knightfall pack as an exclusive piece of content
Priced at £79.99 GBP, it is most definitely worth the price tag to have the Dark Knight and The Joker featured together on the one statue. North American fans need not despair as a Collector’s Edition for your region will be announced next week.
The Playstation 3 version seems to be better value due to the exclusive Knightfall pack included which the Xbox 360 version misses out on.
I imagine the Australian version will be very much in-line with the UK/Europe release but I’m sure I’ll find out more later today.
[UPDATE]: Just received word from WBIE Australia that the Batman Arkham Origins Collector’s Edition will also be available in Oz. Priced at $119.95 AUD on Xbox 360 and PS3. Release date is set for October 25th here as well.
