Batman: Arkham City is shaping up to be the best Batman game yet, and while too many characters can kill a movie, they’re great in a game. With that in mind, Rocksteady and Warner Brothers have released a new trailer, showing that Mr. Freeze will be among the threats in Batman: Arkham City.
Dr. Victor Fries was a brilliant cryogenics expert whose life took a cruel twist that would see him dedicate his life to avenging the fate of his beloved wife Nora and becoming an archenemy of Batman.
Published by Warner Bros. Interactive and developed by Rocksteady Studios, Batman: Arkham City will be available beginning Oct. 18 in North America for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Games for Windows PC and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City – five times larger than the game world in Batman: Arkham Asylum – and the new maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds. Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, this highly anticipated sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new, all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.
