This year marks the 80th anniversary of DC Comics’ most iconic character (followed by Superman, I don’t care that Superman came first) Batman. DC and Warner Brothers have both celebrated by releasing Detective Comics #1000. Now, Epic is looking to join that celebration by releasing six Batman games for free on the Epic Store. That’s right — SIX Batman games are free to claim via the Epic Games Store. Grab these complimentary titles until September 26th (10:59 AM EDT)!
For one week, you can download the Lego Batman Trilogy and the Batman Arkham Collection. In each collection, there will be three games. For the Lego Batman Trilogy, you will get LEGO® Batman™: The Videogame, LEGO® Batman™ 2: DC Super Heroes, and LEGO® Batman™ 3: Beyond Gotham. In the Batman Arkham Collection, you will get Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, and Batman: Arkham Knight. There is no DLC added to the LEGO Batman Trilogy but all the DLC is available for the Batman Arkham Collection.
Now, let’s breakdown each game!
LEGO® Batman™: The Videogame
When all the villains in Arkham Asylum team up and break loose, only the Dynamic Duo is bold enough to take them on to save Gotham City. The fun of LEGO, the drama of Batman, and the uniqueness of the combination makes for a comical and exciting adventure in LEGO Batman: The Videogame.
LEGO® Batman™ 2: DC Super Heroes
Legends unite! The Dynamic Duo of Batman and Robin join other famous superheroes from the DC Universe including Superman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern to save Gotham City from destruction at the hands of the notorious villains Lex Luthor and the Joker.
LEGO® Batman™ 3: Beyond Gotham
The Caped Crusader joins forces with the superheroes of the DC Comics universe and blasts off into outer space to stop the evil Brainiac from destroying Earth.
Batman: Arkham Asylum
After the Joker assaults Gotham City Hall, he’s caught by Batman and taken to Arkham Asylum — which temporarily houses many members of the Joker’s gang who were transferred after a fire at Blackgate Prison. Believing the Joker allowed himself to be captured, Batman accompanies him into the asylum. The Joker’s plan is revealed as Harley Quinn takes control of security and the Joker escapes into the facility, aided by a corrupt guard who kidnaps Commissioner Gordon. It is up to you to play as the Batman, save Gordon, and stop the Joker and his evil plot.
Batman: Arkham City
Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum and sends players flying through the expansive Arkham City (five times larger than the game world in Batman: Arkham Asylum) which is the new maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters, and insane criminal masterminds. Featuring an incredible Rogues Gallery of Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals (including Catwoman, The Joker, The Riddler, Two-Face, Harley Quinn, The Penguin, Mr. Freeze and many others), the game allows players to genuinely experience what it feels like to be The Dark Knight delivering justice on the streets of Gotham City.
Batman: Arkham Knight
Batman™: Arkham Knight brings the award-winning Arkham trilogy from Rocksteady Studios to its epic conclusion. Developed exclusively for New-Gen platforms, Batman: Arkham Knight introduces Rocksteady’s uniquely designed version of the Batmobile. The highly anticipated addition of this legendary vehicle, combined with the acclaimed gameplay of the Arkham series, offers gamers the ultimate and complete Batman experience as they tear through the streets and soar across the skyline of the entirety of Gotham City. In this explosive finale, Batman faces the ultimate threat against the city that he is sworn to protect, as Scarecrow returns to unite the super criminals of Gotham and destroy the Batman forever.
