The Game Batman: Arkham City Will Support 3D Vision on PC

August 16th, 2011 · 4 Comments · Stereo 3D Games


Much like the previous Batman: Arkham Asylum game that was 3D Vision-ready game and looked great in stereoscopic 3D mode, the new Batman: Arkham City game will also support Nvidia’s 3D Vision for gaming in stereo 3D mode on the PC (3DTV Play for a 3D HDTV on PC). The stereo 3D support was officially announced, although the game is not advertised as 3D vision-ready yet, but that could also be due to the fact that it will come with stereoscopic 3D support for consoles as well, and so the focus will not be only the PC version this time. The game will apparently have stereoscopic 3D support for both the Xbox 360 version and the PlayStation 3 version and aside from being able to enjoy it on a big screen 3D HDTV with any of these consoles, you will also be able to play it in anaglyph 3D on a non-3D TV set. There is still no information however if the game will come with anaglyph 3D glasses bundled, or you will have to obtain them separately.

Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City – five times larger than the game world in Batman: Arkham Asylum– and the new maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds. Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, this highly anticipated sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new, all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight.

Now, considering that the previous Batman: Arkham Asylum game was really good and was even better in stereo 3D mode with 3D Vision (the original version did not support stereo 3D mode on consoles), our expectations for the new Batman: Arkham City are even higher, so let us see if the developers from Rocksteady Studios will be able to deliver. Batman: Arkham Asylum is scheduled for a release on October 18th in North America, October 19th in Australia and October 21st in Europe for all systems – PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Batman: Arkham City is already available for pre-order in standard ans collector’s edition…

Batman: Arkham Asylum – 3D Vison and PhysX ready Demo is Out

Good news coming out from Nvidia and Eidos Interactive/ Rocksteady Studios today with the release of a demo version of the upcoming game Batman: Arkham Asylum. Now what is interesting for this title is that it is going to support PhysX, which should be a good one, having in mind that the previous game with PhysX (Terminator) wasn’t very good. But with the demo released today comes another good news and that is that Batman: Arkham Asylum is also 3D Vison Ready, meaning that it should play in Stereo 3D without any major problems and it is supposed to look great (I do hope that it is true). So now you can head over to Nzone to download the 2 gigabyte demo of Batman: Arkham Asylum and try how the games does with both PhysX and 3D Vision. I’m already downloading the demo of the game at the moment and when I have some personal feedback about it and especially on the 3D Vision part I’ll write about it.

Update: Ok, the game is nice… PhysX is not that impressive as I expected, but still adds a nice touch in the atmosphere… now I have much higher expectations when the full game is released. As for 3D Vision readiness… the game looks good with minor to no ghosting at default depth level, but you cannot increase it a lot without having visual problems. More 3D Vision feedback coming a bit later…
