In today’s video, we discuss something subjective – are video game remasters good or bad? And...
It Looks Like Delaying Batman: Return to Arkham Was the Right Decision
Earlier this year, Batman: Return to Arkham Remastered bundle was delayed indefinitely. The game’s original reveal trailer tried to show the improvements made to both games but only managed to show how much worse they looked compared to the original games.
The remaster was in no condition to release in July and it had to be pushed back. At the time, WB released the following statement:
After reviewing the progress of the project, the team at WB Games has decided to delay the release of Batman: Return to Arkham to give the team at Virtuous Games additional time to deliver a polished Batman Arkham game experience. We do not have a release date yet and will be sure to communicate that once we are sure the game will be ready. We know this is disappointing news, but we feel the extra time will allow the team to create the best gaming experience for our fans
Now, after almost 5 months, it looks like the decision to delay the game was correct. The latest graphics comparison, courtesy of Youtuber Cycu1, we can clearly see the improvements made to Batman Arkham City.
The lighting, texture quality, gamma, reflections, every aspect looks in a much better shape than it was months ago. You can check out the video comparison above.
Batman: Return to Arkham is releasing on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 20. What do you think of the improvements made to since June?
