Superhero Hype reports that Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate will be released as a deluxe edition. The Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment game will be available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC on April 1.
Armature Studio developed the game, just as they did on handheld systems. It will be the same game as before, now in HD. Fans can buy it on the PlayStation Network, Xbox LIVE Marketplace, Nintendo eShop and Steam for $19.99. It will also include a new map and hint system to improve navigation and objective tracking, 5.1 surround sound and a fully voiced narrative. Players will also get all previously released suits and the Zero Year Batsuit skin, which can be unlocked by registering for or signing into a Warner Bros. ID account.
Here's a synopsis: After gang-fueled uprisings occur within the walls of Blackgate Prison, Batman is called in to restore order and put an end to the rebellion before the chaos implodes. As the story progresses, players will explore deep inside the bowels of this remote island penitentiary and discover what happened after the events of Batman: Arkham Origins and learn more details of the Dark Knight's past.
