Batman: Arkham Knight Launch Date and Two Collector’s Editions Revealed

BatmanArkhamKnight

Emerging from the Batcave after having its 2014 release plans iced back at E3, Batman: Arkham Knight is back in the headlines with two big announcements to kick off the week.

First up, the new launch date has been set: June 2, 2015. That’s for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

With a date in place, it’s time to start talking collector’s editions. Batman: Arkham Knight will be available in two such packages, including a Limited Edition and an uber-extravagant Batmobile Edition. In North America, both editions are exclusive to consoles, but for the Limited Edition a PC version will be available in Europe, Australia and New Zealand. The Batmobile Edition is a console exclusive worldwide.

Amazon.com has opened pre-orders for the $99.99 Limited Edition. Pre-orders have not gone live yet for the $200 Batmobile Edition, but you can sign up to be notified when the game becomes available. Or you can refrain from blowing a huge wad of cash and just buy the standard edition.

But first you’ll surely want to take a look at what comes in each edition before deciding which one to get!

Batman: Arkham Knight Limited Edition will include:
