I don't know if it is YMMV or not, but saw this up in-store today, and got it. I was told it was part of their new marketing material, so it might be good everywhere. Might be a good deal for anyone who is waiting for an Ultimate Edition of sorts. It is good for both PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game.

 

EDIT:

 

This is for a new copy, and the season pass automatically printed on the receipt.

Sigh, just bought the game on PSN today too.  If it's a physical copy I suppose I can use the $5 coupon on it and get both for $15, keep the pass and sell the game.  Did they mention if it was new or used?

Complete edition soon, whether NA gets it is a mystery to me.

At first I wanted it but I'll probably be better off to not tarnish my good memory of the series while we await the release of arkham knight.

The cons of digital. Things like this may be few and far between, but I am holding off on going digital for as long as I can. At least it was on sale.

Still an 8/10. And even decent batman is still batman, which is great. The story is awesome too.

Yeah but if it's a new sealed copy and I pay $15 I'll at worst break even on selling a sealed copy or be under $5 for the season pass which is acceptable.

 

Too bad the 50% bonus is over, would trade back for almost $13.

I'd be willing to do this, but I don't want to risk it since I already own the game. Can anyone confirm if this is possible?

So did they ever fix the bug that deletes your save games for this game?

Nope. They developers came out and said they weren't going to patch a lot of the problems. I believe there were some patches, but according to this www.gamerheadlines.com/2014/02/no-fixes-are-coming-for-batman-arkham-origins/ they weren't going to fix some of the game breaking stuff.

That's why I'm holding off on getting the game, even at $22. If there is no GOTY because the developers don't want to patch the game and a PS4 excuse, I'll probably reconsider.

FWIW you are missing out on some pretty interesting multiplayer.  I haven't even gotten to the single player game yet, but I've spent some time in the multiplayer and it is fun, there's really nothing out there like it.  

 

And has the complete version even been confirmed?  Honestly I never thought it was coming, or I probably would've waited too.  Either way, wasn't most of the DLC just skins, with one or two challenge maps and the Mr. Freeze story?  I mean, if I can find a half decent trade-in value for the original I'll make the trade if for no other reason than because I have the complete editions of Asylum/City.  

Then again, the season pass wouldn't unlock Deathstroke would it?  And the Wal-Mart exclusive skins were never released as DLC right?   Fuck, as much as I love WB this DLC crap really pisses me off sometimes.  I mean I'd be buying all these games on Day 1 if not for this bullshit, instead I can't bring myself to pay over $20 for any of their stuff.  

 

Anyways..... don't get the WiiU version lol.  Even if you ignore the framerate/graphical issues that version is said to have, the multiplayer is worth the money.  I don't think there's another game out there like it when you throw Batman/Robin into the mix.

 


well i asked whether you stood behind your opinions and you said "Always" so i offered up the same bet that i gave to Fire Thief. You think the price of the xbox one will drop to $300 + 2 games by end of year? Let's put a bet on it.

It's a new copy.

It's on the receipt. And if you really wanted to do that, no one is stopping you.

Actually, I heard Gamestop is good about this kind of thing. Because what would stop someone from buying a new release just for the preorder bonus and then returning the game? I've heard people being banned from Gamestop doing just this, though I can't verify it myself.

I actually thought of doing this, but I just looked up what's included in the season pass. Its just mainly costumes, the mr.freeze dlc (which I heard isn't that great) and then the combat challenge map. Honestly the season pass is just like the game, lackluster.

 

For anyone that has the game, is the online dead? I never bothered to touch it when I had my copy. Seemed like a stupid decision to include multiplayer.

one of the challenge maps is free

mister freeze is 10

i got a free dlc from gamefly when i bought it

the other challenge pack is 2 

id rather pay 12 instead of 20 since the dlc only includes 10 skins and mister freeze

No, the multiplayer is not dead (at least not on PSN).  It is pretty fun.

I wish I had more time to play games. I beat this game in early December and have been meaning to play new game + for the past 8 months. I don't get the hate this game gets. It's fine. People are just pissy because it doesn't have the voice actors from the animated series like the last 2 games.

Do you have to beat the campaign to unlock the bonus costumes like in Arkham City?
