Be The Villain in ‘Batman: Arkham Underworld’

It seems our return to Arkham isn’t as delayed as we thought.

I’m not talking about the delayed Return to Arkham, but rather a new game to that wonderful world. Warner Bros. games has released the new Batman: Arkham Underworld for iOS devices. The game allows you to play from the villain’s perspective, building a crew to run Gotham. Your villains of choice? The Riddler, Harley Quinn, Mr. Freeze, Scarecrow and Killer Croc.






Here’s the description from iTunes:


Become the city’s next criminal mastermind as you fight your way to the top in Batman: Arkham Underworld!

Recruit DC Comics super-villains to do your dirty work, then train an army of thugs to attack your rivals. Grow your criminal empire and crush your enemies to earn loot and respect. Create the ultimate hideout full of traps, security forces and hidden dangers to defend your turf from other aspiring crime lords.

Earn enough respect on the streets? Get ready to take on Batman to secure your status as Gotham City’s ultimate threat!

If you still need convincing, here’s the trailer.

You STILL need convincing? It’s free! Of course, there are bits in the game you can buy with real money but for most of us, it won’t cost a cent. Unfortunately for some, the game is only available (for now) through Apple devices.
