Batman: Arkham City to use GFWL

Batman: Arkham City will use Games for Windows Live, as revealed by the new PC box art for the game, reports Rock Paper Shotgun. This means you'll use Microsoft's own front-end for the game, with all the frustrations and perks that come with it. But hey, at least you can use the PC version to contribute to your Gamerscore, if you're into that sort of thing.

You can step into the shoes of the Dark Knight on PC, PlayStation 3, or Xbox 360 on October 18. Robin was recently revealed as a playable character in Challenge Maps, at least as a pre-order bonus from Best Buy. For hands-on impressions check out our pre-E3 preview of Arkham City.
