We have some great news for those of you who are planning to pick up Batman Arkham City at the end of the year, and even better if you have managed to pick up a ticket for the 2011 Eurogamer Expo in London – it’s going to be playable.
For those of you that are unaware, Batman Arkham City is the follow up to the hugely successful Arkham Asylum game and Arkham City is not due to be released until the middle of October on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
However, for those of you who have a ticket to this year’s Eurogamer Expo at Earl’s Court in London, you’ll be delighted to hear that you will be able to have the very first sample of gameplay as the title will be one of the highlights of a growing list of excellent games available this year. Even better, you may bump into a few of the PR writers at the event, as we already have our press tickets for the event – hopefully we’ll see you there!
If you want to see the current lineup for the Expo, head over to Eurogamer’s official website here. Highlights for me personally are Battlefield 3, Ninja Gaiden 3, FIFA 12, Pro Evo 2012, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Star Wars: The Old Republic and Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Attendees will also have an opportunity to play some of the latest Kinect and Move supported games as well, so there’s definitely something for everyone.
For those of you who are interested, you can even come to the Eurogamer Expo in cosplay! According to the website, there will be prizes up for grabs too, as you’ll have a chance to win a PlayStation Vita and a copy of Uncharted: Golden Abyss for the best dressed Nathan Drake or Elena Fisher – so good luck for those crazy enough to dress up for that, we’ll certainly be on the lookout for you.
Do you have a ticket for the Expo this year? If so, let us know your thoughts on being one of the first gamers in the UK to play Batman Arkham City before anyone else.
