Gamers will no doubt remember that 2009 Game of the Year contender Batman: Arkham Asylum launched with content that was exclusive to the PlayStation 3, namely challenge maps that allowed players the opportunity to play as the Joker.
This time around, though, Rocksteady Studios are bypassing any sort of favoritism towards any one gaming platform, instead opting to deliver the same game to everyone regardless of what they prefer to play games on.
At Gamescom last week, Rocksteady marketing manager Dax Ginn was interviewed by Gamespot, and had the following to offer when asked about the potential for platform-exclusive content for Arkham City:
“We’re really treating gamers very equally regardless of which platform they want to play the game on. The plan at the moment is really to deliver the same game across all platforms.”
Of course, platform-exclusive content isn’t the same as retailer-exclusive content, and there will be plenty of ways to dress up Batman in-game depending on where you decide to preorder or purchase the game. There are six alternate costumes being served up for the game, and you can get some backstory on each of them right here.
