Nvidia and Warner Brothers Partner Up on Batman: Arkham Origins

By   /   3 years ago

An announcement came out recently from Nvidia declaring that the gaming hardware manufacturers were teaming up with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and WB Games Montréal to bundle Batman: Arkham Origins with its graphics cards.

If you decide to purchase a new graphics card any time soon, you may want to check to see if it’s part of this deal, because there’s a free copy of the game in it for you as soon as it comes out on Oct. 25, 2013. (PC version of course).

As the name implies, Batman: Arkham Origins is set several years before the events of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. It features an expanded Gotham City and sees a younger and less experienced Batman combating the criminals that came before the rise of his most dangerous enemies.

The game is being developed by WB Games and they’re working alongside the Nvidia Developer Technology Team in an effort to include cutting edge Nvidia visual technologies. Examples include DirectX tessellation, TXAA Antialiasing, soft shadows and several PhysX adjustments that affect things like cloth and steam.

According to Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President of Production and Development at Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment:

“The Batman: Arkham games are visually stunning and it’s great that we are able to continue building upon the amazing graphics with Batman: Arkham Origins,”

Nvidia will be giving fans a sneak peek at the game at PAX Prime in Seattle at the Nvidia presentation. If PAX-goers also buy a special bundle from a kiosk at their booth, they’ll be able to get a free limited edition Batman lithograph. This is pretty special considering that only 1000 of the suckers have been produced.

Remember that the Arkham Origins + GPU offer is only valid until early next year. 31 January 2014 to be exact, so don’t hesitate.
