Batman: Return To Arkham Comparison


This video shows the graphical upgrade you get with Return To Arkham!

Return To Arkham is a remaster collection coming to PS4 and Xbox One in roughly two months on July 26th. It will feature two of the most critically acclaimed games of the last generation, Arkham Asylum & Arkham City with all their respective DLC in one package.

But that’s not all, Return To Arkham features both games getting ported to the Unreal 4 engine for a nice graphical polish. Even Arkham Knight, released last year on current consoles, ran on the Unreal 3 engine (albeit it heavily modified) and looked fantastic. How much of a difference will being on a new engine make, well you can check it out for yourself in this Return To Arkham comparison video below!

Next: Batman: Return To Arkham Out July 26th

I mean, Arkham Asylum & Arkham City already looked fantastic, so there’s only so much of a jump to make. Still, there’s a lot of little details  you can see in the various comparisons that stand out nicely. The one complaint I can see some people having is that in this Return To Arkham  remaster is that the games look noticeably brighter and more  colorful. While that helps with fidelity, it definitely undermines the feel of grittiness that was present in the original games. I still think there’s noticeable improvement though.

Whether or not Return To Arkham will be worth your $50 when it comes out is a little tougher. I mean, If you’ve still got both games and your older systems hooked up, or don’t have much of an urge to play them again, I don’t see much reason to pick this up. But if you’ve never played either game or want to play either without hooking up your older consoles, it is probably well worth your time to pick up. Once again Batman: Return To Arkham releases July 26th on PS4 and Xbox One.
