The Batman: Arkham City pre-order skins

The six announced Batman: Arkham City skins have been collected and detailed.

ArkhamCity.co.uk did the leg work, sorting the pre-order bonuses into a tidy list with a nifty picture.

UK gamers can get the 1970s Batman skin from ShopTo.net. Nab the Batman Beyond skin from GameStop.co.uk.

The Dark Knight Returns skin is available to all who pre-order the Collector's Edition – from any store. The Animated Series and Earth One skins are so far exclusive to a New Zealand retailer. Will they be sold as DLC post launch? Robin's Red Robin skin is also currently unavailable to UK gamers.

Yeah, what's with fat batman?

Batman Beyond looks cool, though (if 100lbs of muscle bigger than he should be).
Your mom!

Rocksteady has confirmed to Eurogamer that the full range of Batman: Arkham City skins being divvied up between retailers as pre-order bonuses will become available to all later on as DLC.

"The offer that we're making out with retailers for gamers is, this is an early access opportunity for you," Rocksteady's marketing manager Dax Ginn told us in London yesterday. "Absolutely down the track [the skins] will be available more broadly."

Oh gawd, thank you!  I was seriously considering buying 50 copies.   :-[

i like it,  it looks familiar and as good as the last but with larger scope. I hope the gameplay is tweaked enough to make it feel 'better' than the original.

Also Batman: Arkham City's Cat Woman is much better than the Dark Knight Rises Cat Woman.

Batman: Arkham City The Album revealed

Warner Bros. has announced Batman: Arkham City - The Album, an 11-track medley of dark and brooding tunes to fuel gamers' excitement for November's Arkham Asylum sequel.

The album features original ditties from Panic! At the Disco, Coheed and Cambria, The Duke Spirit and System of a Down front-man Serj Tankian.

Batman: Arkham City - The Album will release in record shops on 4th October, giving gamers two weeks to listen to it on repeat before Arkham City launches on 21st October.

Gamers getting Arkham City's Collector's Edition who can wait until the game's release get a free download code for the album - including a bonus track by A Place to Bury Strangers.

"I write in a very conceptual format with the stories that surround Coheed and Cambria," said C&C front-man Claudio Sanchez, "but Batman has a much larger, defined history and rules that go along with it. My goal was to find universal themes from Batman's existing history to help give the lyrics legs and dimension so that the song could live within that world."

The full tracklisting lies below:

    Panic! At The Disco - Mercenary
    Coheed and Cambria - Deranged
    The Duke Spirit - Creature
    Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Shadow On The Run
    Blaqk Audio - Afterdark
    The Raveonettes - Oh, Stranger
    ††† (Crosses) - The Years
    The Damned Things - Trophy Widow
    Daughtry - Drown In You
    The Boxer Rebellion - Losing You
    Serj Tankian - Total Paranoia
    A Place to Bury Strangers - In The Shadow (Bonus Collector's Edition track)
