Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate hits console, PC

Last year, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate hit handheld and mobile devices, as a sort of spin-off / companion piece to the console/PC release Batman: Arkham Origins.

Today, Blackgate steps up for its turn in the console spotlight, officially arriving on PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U.

The story is simple, set three months after Origins, and sees Batman summoned (yet again!) to restore peace to the inmates of Blackgate Prison. Is there more to the henchman uprising?

It’s obviously not just a straight port of the handheld release, instead promising a “more enhanced version” of the core pillars explored in the original. Expect an all-new map system, new enemy encounters, more difficulty levels, extra Batsuits and some super-shiny HD visuals, plus 5.1 surround support so it’ll sound as good as it looks.

You can grab Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition right now for PC (via Steam), PS3, Xbox 360 and the Wii U eShop – if you want a physical copy for your Wii U, you’ll be waiting a little while longer (sorry).

If you hurry up and register your Warner Bros. ID account (WBID), you’ll also unlock an exclusive Zero Year Batsuit skin!
