Batman: Arkham Knight PC Version Is Back On Sale, Free Gifts On The Way

Batman: Arkham Knight's PC version has returned to stores following a long hiatus. To mark the occasion, Warner Bros. is giving away freebies to the early adopters of the game.

For starters, anyone who purchases Knight in the next three weeks will get Steam keys for the other games in the Arkham series:

This means we will be giving away copies of Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY, Batman: Arkham City GOTY, Batman: Arkham Origins, and Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate. The Batman: Arkham library of games will be given to everyone who has already purchased or will purchase Batman: Arkham Knight for PC prior to 11:59 pm PDT, November 16, 2015. We’re actively working with our partners at Valve to make this happen as soon as we can, so watch your Steam Library. We are aiming to deliver all of the games by December.

I'd imagine most Arkham fans have played most of these games at this point so that takes away some of the impact of the freebies. Enjoy your free copy of Blackgate, I guess?

Furthermore, the developers are now making a "Community Challenge Pack" that will be released for free in January 2016. While PS4 and Xbox One gamers will also get this DLC, it will debut a week early on PC. Additional details on the "Community Challenge Pack" will be announced soon.

Anyone who owns Arkham Knight on Steam by November 16th will also get special Batman-themed cosmetic items for Team Fortress 2. These items will be created by the community in a contest underway until the 16th. Designers of the winning creations (Valve will select up to three) will get two dozen games published by WB for free:

  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Batman: Arkham City – Game of the Year Edition
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum Game of the Year Edition
  • Batman: Arkham Origins

Batman: Arkham Knight's PC version was released alongside its console counterparts back in June. However, a slew of technical problems led Warner Bros. to stop selling the game on PC just days after launch. Only the early adopters have had access to the game since then. Rocksteady has been releasing patches over the past few months to clean up the game in anticipation of today's re-release.
