New Map Pack Coming for Batman: Arkham Asylum

| 23 Sep 2009 14:49

Good news for people who love beating the crap out of inmates at the world's most notoriously sieve-like insane asylum: Eidos is lining up yet another free map pack for Batman: Arkham Asylum.

The new pack, Prey in the Darkness, comes with two Challenge Mode maps: The first, "Heart of Darkness," takes place in the Arkham Pumping Station, while the second, "Hothouse Prey," is set in the Abandoned Glasshouse section of the Botanical Gardens.

In fact, according to Eurogamer, while the new map pack isn't scheduled to come out until September 24 - tomorrow, in other words - it's already available on Xbox Live. Looks like the PlayStation crowd gets hosed again.

Batman: Arkham Asylum is a huge hit, with gamers and critics alike raving about its Game of the Year potential, but I can't help but hope for something even better: Something like, say, Hitman: Arkham Asylum. Not the Agent 47 Hitman we all know and love, though; I'm talking about Tommy Monaghan, a Gotham City button-man who was hired to break in to Arkham and kill the Joker. He failed, of course, but much hilarity ensued! Monaghan is also possibly the only character in comic book history to barf on Batman's shoes after being punched in the stomach too hard.
