Within the last 24 hours, we informed you about the disappointing news that Batman Arkham City had leaked into torrent form, allowing modded Xbox 360 owners to download the game online at their discretion. Now, the first 15 minutes of the game has been uploaded online.
Obviously, this is now becoming a popular trend in the video games industry for the first 15 minutes of a game to leak a few days before release. Batman Arkham City is no different and it was almost inevitable after the realization that Rocksteady’s hard work had leaked onto torrent sites almost a week before the official release date.
There’s plenty of spoilers here as you can imagine, so perhaps this video only serves as a purpose for gamers who are not picking up Arkham City, but are interested, or for those who just want to take a look at early footage regardless. The video begins with a cutscene introducing players into the game and then Batman realizing that he has his work cut out if he is going to protect his identity to the public – that’s all we’re saying.
One more thing – the quality of the game is looking absolutely fantastic from a design point of view, and it’s easy to see why the game has already been awarded a few perfect review scores from the likes of Game Informer and the Official PlayStation Magazine.
If you can’t bear it anymore and want to see an excellent preview of Batman Arkham City before release, head to this Polish website as the video is located there. If you do watch it, give us your opinions on it afterwards and let everyone know how good the game is looking.
Has this video alone decided that Batman Arkham City is a must-have game when it releases on October 18 We believe so.
