Game information

Batman: Arkham is a DC Comics action-adventure game series developed by Rocksteady Studios and published by Eidos Interactive and WB Games. In the first game, Batman: Arkham Asylum (2009), Batman tries to prevent Joker from destroying Gotham City after he takes control of Arkham Asylum and is forced to deal with other villains he has incarcerated. The second game, Arkham City (2011), is set a year later, after Hugo Strange expands Arkham into a massive super-prison enclosing a dilapidated segment of Gotham City; Batman is incarcerated and must uncover the secret behind Strange's sinister scheme, "Protocol 10", while dying from an illness inflicted by Joker. Arkham Origins (2013) is a prequel set 5 years before the events of Arkham Asylum in which a younger and less-refined Batman only in the second year of his career must deal with a bounty that has been placed on him by crime lord Black Mask and has lured eight deadly assassins to Gotham on Christmas Eve, but must also uncover the mystery of the Joker. The fourth game, Batman: Arkham Knight (2015), is Rocksteady's conclusion to the series. Set one year after the events of Arkham City, Arkham Knight sees Batman facing Scarecrow along with the mysterious Arkham Knight and his militia, who have seized control of Gotham in a plan to destroy Batman, both physically and mentally, as well as the city. The franchise has also seen the release of various mobile games, and the virtual reality game, Batman: Arkham VR, which was once again developed by Rocksteady.
