In Batman: Arkham Asylum the player assumes the role of Batman as he delivers The Joker to Arkham Asylum. There, the imprisoned super-villains have set a trap and an immersive combat gaming experience unfolds. With an original script penned by Emmy Award-winning Batman writer Paul Dini, the game brings the universe of DC ComicsÂ’ detective to life with stunning graphics.
According to the last issue of Game Informer, Eidos is working on a new Batman game that's being developed by Rocksteady Studios, known for Urban Chaos: Riot Response, whose website has a countdown clock, presumably to the official announcement. Powered by the Unreal Engine 3, Batman: Arkham Asylum is a 3rd-person action game with a dark and gritty setting reminiscent of Bioshock. Sporting a story co-written by the producer of TV's Batman: The Animated Series, Paul Dini, the game features Joker and "an army" of other supervillains, and is currently scheduled for 2009.
