Rocksteady’s hugely popular “Batman: Arkham” game series has finally reached its conclusion with “Batman: Arkham Knight.” While the previous installment, “Batman: Arkham Origins” was a prequel of sorts, breaking the timeline, “Arkham Knight” is a direct sequel to “Arkham City.” With two years between iterations, “Batman: Arkham Knight” is the first “Arkham” game available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Taking advantage of the hardware upgrade, the new game introduces quite a bit of new gameplay, and with so many changes, the BradyGames Signature Series or Collector’s Edition guide can really help out.
BradyGames is offering both a hardback “Batman: Arkham Knight Collector’s Edition” Strategy Guide and a softback “Batman: Arkham Knight Signature Series” Strategy Guide. Both guides cover all three versions of the game and will help you master the new Batmobile and the driving and combat modes. Highly detailed maps showing every important location and collectible, including the many side missions, Riddler’s secrets, and Augmented Reality Challenges. The book also has in-depth data and for every gadget, and tool Batman has, along with exhaustive villain statistics and tactics. Of course the complete spoiler-free story mode walkthrough is well-covered on over 120 pages of the over 300 page guide.
BradyGames’ “Batman: Arkham Knight Collector’s Edition” Strategy Guide will likely only be available for a short period of time. In addition to the more durable hardback format, the package includes four foil-stamped lithographs of the game’s key concept art. These lithographs are available exclusively in the collector’s edition guide along with a 12 page sneak peek of the upcoming “Batman Arkham Universe: The Ultimate Visual Guide.” As a bonus, the “Collector’s Edition Strategy Guide” also includes a voucher for the downloadable e-guide. Unfortunately, the downloadable story packs are not covered, although they may be included in the e0guide at a later date.
