We can’t think of a single Batman fan who hasn’t played Rocksteady Studios’ critically acclaimed trilogy of Arkham titles yet, but those of you who are interested in owning DRM-free versions of the games should definitely head over to GOG.

The retailer recently made Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, Arkham Knight, and even WB Games Montreal’s Arkham Origins prequel available through its storefront. What’s even better is that they’ve all been heavily discounted as part of GOG’s ongoing Black Friday Sale.

Arkham fans can get each game in the quadrilogy for just $4.99. Telltale Games’ Batman titles (i.e., Batman – The Telltale Series and Batman: The Enemy Within) are also available for $3.74 each, as well as TT Games’ LEGO Batman Trilogy (i.e., LEGO Batman: The Videogame, LEGO Batman 2 DC Super Heroes, and LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham).

During this summer’s Fandome event, Rocksteady Games revealed that it had moved on from Batman to a project starring DC Comics’ supervillain team, the Suicide Squad. We’re guessing that the Dark Knight will still have some kind of role in the game, though, as the developer has already confirmed that Kill the Justice League is part of the Arkham universe.

Arkham Origins developer WB Games Montreal is also working on a Batman game called Gotham Knights, which lets players take on the roles of Red Hood, Robin, Batgirl, and Nightwing. The game looks a lot like an Arkham game, but strangely, WB Montreal insists that it isn’t a sequel and serves as a standalone title.

  1. Just about the best games in history with Arkham City basically being a perfect game. It would be in my top 2 or 3 list of what’s the 1 game I’d choose if I could only play 1 game for the rest of my life.

    I even liked Origins. Yeah it was the weakest of the 3 but it was still excellent.

  2. I enjoyed all 4 games as well. Sadly played the first two games back with the horrid GFW Live shiznit. Later Steam gave me the GotY editions for free, the ones without the GFWL crap in it. Didn’t expect WB to be on board with something like that. Nice though, since those who had the GFWL versions didn’t get shafted after the service’s discontinuation. Arkham City wore me out by the end of it, so I was already kinda fatigued, but I decided to give Origins a shot. I don’t recall the gap in time between when I played AC and when I played AO, but I probably needed some time after AC (and no, I didn’t even try to get 100% completion, as I had done with Arkham Asylum). I used a friend’s copy to play AO, just intending to try it out, but I kept with it, eventually finished it, and yeah, weakest of the three, but still enjoyable.

    It took me a looooong time to get around to Arkham Knight. Actually just did it earlier this year. PC port was trash upon release, and then the game kinda fell off my radar, and I forgot about it over the years. I don’t even remember what reminded me about it, or got me wanting to finally check it out. I got that whole Batman collection that EGS gave out for free, but ironically I used a friend’s Steam copy to play it. Ended up really enjoying that game too. I think waiting so long to get back to the series actually made me more willing to dive back in. Plus the passage of time meant newer beefier hardware could apply brute-force to overpower the PC port’s performance failings.

    Very surprised that WB decided to release some of their stuff on a DRM-free store. Hhhmmm between this and Sony releasing HZD on GOG, I hope this is the beginning of a trend.

  3. Are there people that have not played Arkham Asylum or City yet? Awesome games. Arkham Knight left me kinda “meh” but I got tired of driving the batmobile. I know it sounds crazy, but true….. there is TOO MUCH [S]cowbell[/S] batmobile in that game.

    I agree, and the sneaky bits were annoying as hell, also I played all 3 back to back and the changed controls for the third one made it realy annoying, so drezzkill got away good there beeing so much time between them
