Batman Arkham VR Coming to PC Via Oculus Rift and HTC Vive

PlayStation VR got it first, but now PC users can dive into the seediness of Arkham as the Batman.


PlayStation 4 users got to jump into the world of Batman Arkham VR when the virtual reality experience launched alongside PSVR back in October. Now, PC users will get a shot at being the Bat, as the game will be coming to Oculus Rift and HTC Vive on April 25.

Batman Arkham VR will also support the Oculus Touch and Vive controllers, and provide full gamepad support on PC, whether you want to use a Dual Shock 4, Xbox One or Steam controller.

"The Dark Knight has always been an incredible character to work with due to his psychological depth, so it’s really exciting to use this immersive medium to delve deeper into his psyche than ever before,” Rocksteady Studios Creative Director Sefton Hill said in a press release. 

While it should be great to be able to tour around Arkham and get the feeling of actually donning the Bat's cowl, don't expect too much game play, as developer Rocksteady said the experience should only take about 2.5 hours"The core narrative is about 60 minutes in duration," developer Dan Ginn said last year. "However additional content is unlocked that provides about another 90 minutes of gameplay on top of that. So there are plenty of reasons to play through the game multiple times in order to see everything that we have put into it."

Of course, the game is only $20, and given the toll that VR can take on some folks, maybe 2.5 hours isn't so bad.
