Batman: Arkham Asylum Arrives On the Mac App Store

by


Batman: Arkham Asylum has arrived on the Mac, two years after it was released on consoles and the PC.

Batman: Arkham Asylum exposes players to a unique, dark and atmospheric adventure that takes them to the depths of Arkham Asylum - Gotham's psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane. Gamers will move in the shadows, instigate fear amongst their enemies and confront The Joker and Gotham City's most notorious villains who have taken over the asylum.

Using a wide range of Batman's gadgets and abilities, players will become the invisible predator and attempt to foil The Joker's demented scheme.

Batman: Arkham Asylum features an original story penned exclusively for the game by famous Batman author and five-time Emmy award winner Paul Dini, whose credits include Lost season one and Batman: The Animated Series.

Feral, the company that released the Mac port of the game, recommends users have a 2.8Ghz Intel processor with at least 4GB or RAM and 512MB of VRAM. Check Feral's website for complete system requirements to ensure it will work on your system.

Batman: Arkham Asylum is available on the Mac App Store for $39.99. [Direct Link]

Popular game prices rarely change.

They do! The two games that haven't dropped their price this generation are Call of Duty 4 and New Mario Wii.

Arkham Asylum is £9.99 on Steam and has dropped to £2.50 in the past, I paid £15 (new) for the PS3 version a few weeks ago. Console game prices drop after a few months.

I love this game. I have it for the 360 and its phenomenal. Its a shame that a 2 thousand dollar Apple laptop cannot run this game at decent settings.

Put a better graphics card in the macbook pro Apple.

EDIT: I just noticed this is Arkham Asylum and not Arkham City...wow a 2 year old game for $40. For PC on the steam this game is less than 20 bucks.

Aww shucks, won't be able to play this on my laptop. Not enough V RAM.

Bought it on steam awhile ago and played on the mac using bootcamp.

Heh... Mac users complaining about price....

Mac users are not blind.

Mac users are willing to pay for quality (Apple products), but also don't want to pay for something that's overpriced (aka same game can be bought on steam and played on Mac for lower price).
