Is the Batman Arkham Knight Limited Edition worth buying over the regular version?

Along with the Batmobile Edition and Serious Edition, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is also releasing a limited edition for Batman Arkham Knight. So are the extras from the bundle worth the extra price tag (you can check out the current price for the product on Amazon with this link) or are you better off just buying the standalone game? Let’s take a look at the content included in the package.

Batman Arkham Knight

It is no secret that Batman Arkham Knight is one of the most anticipated videogames of 2015. Rocksteady Studios’ final Batman game promises to provide a fiery end to the saga that started in Batman Arkham Asylum and continued in Batman Arkham City.

The sequel further expands on the gameplay from the second game of the series. One of the biggest addition is the ability to drive the Batmobile. The heavily-armored car can be used to subdue both humanoid and vehicular enemies in addition to being summoned from anywhere on the streets of Gotham City.

The other major new feature is the dual play mechanic. With this ability, you will be able to switch from being able to control Batman to another ally (such as Nightwing or Robin) to pull off tag-team attacks.

Along with some added new abilities for Batman, the sequel is shaping up to be the best experience in the series yet as Rocksteady Studio look like they will be going out with a bang.batman-arkham-knight-rain

Bonus Content

Along with the main game, Batman Arkham Knight also has a few DLC packs already announced. The most notable one is the Harley Quinn Story Pack as you will be able to play as the evil villain if you preorder the software product at participating retailers. PlayStation 4 gamers will also have first access to Scarecrow Nightmare Missions. Fortunately, you will still be able to get off in the standalone game in addition to the limited edition release.

Batman Arkham Knight Limited Edition Contents

Batman Arkham Knight Limited Edition comes with five bonuses that you can’t find in the standalone release of the videogame. You can check out each of them below.

Limited Edition Batman Statue – The most impressive extra of the bundle is easily Limited Edition Batman Statue, which shows The Dark knight standing triumphant above the skyline of Gotham City. This striking figure stands at a foot tall.

Limited Edition DC Comic Book – The package also comes with issue #0 of the Batman Arkham Knight comic book series from DC Comics. So, if you want to delve deeper into the lore of the videogame, the limited edition should be a good time to start your collection of the comic series.

Art Book – Also include is an 80-page art book showcasing concept art from the videogame. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment did not go cheap in this extra as the pages from the book will be presented in full color.

DC Comics’ New 52 Series Skins – Of course, you will also be getting three character skins, which are based on The New 52 series.

Steel Book and Game Disc – Last but not least, the limited edition also comes with a steel book along with an unique game disc art.Batman-Arkham-Knight-Limited-Edition


Batman Arkham Knight looks like it will be another great game in the franchise. Fortunately, none of the extras from the limited edition affect the actual gameplay aside from the relatively harmless extra character skins. So you should get the same experience with the standalone game if you aren’t attracted in the other goodies. If you are interested, you can preorder the regular version with this page.

With that said, the extras from the limited edition appear to be of high-quality, especially with the impressive looking Batman statue.
