Batman: Arkham Asylum PC PhysX Effects in Motion

Batman: Arkham Asylum. It’s out now on the PS3 and Xbox 360, racking up rave reviews from pretty much every game publication on the planet (still haven’t been able to play it yet to give you my impressions, unfortunately). But the PC version, it was delayed by a few weeks to September 15th for the purposes of working in support for NVIDIA’s PhysX tech, enhancing the physics of Batman’s cape (and other cloth materials like banners) and enriching the atmosphere with dense fog effects, wall and floor tiles that break apart in combat and fly around, spider webs that tear as Batman passes by, and various other effects you can see in this new trailer.

Added PhysX effects worth the delay? You be the judge!
