Warner games also released a 5 minute video comparison of the games on PS3 and PS4. The gameplay footage doesn’t perfectly line up at times but the difference in quality and definition of the current-gen consoles still stands out.

Both Rocksteady’s Arkham Asylum and open world follow up Arkham City get a redo in the remastered bundle. What’s more, it includes all the previous downloadable content for the games.

It was announced back in July that the re-release would be delayed due to issues of quality and no new release date was given until now.

Warner stated on their forum that the team needed additional time to create a more polished version of the game.  

Batman: Arkham Knight was released in June 2015 and has sold over 5 million copies. It is reported to be the final game in the series.
