Today sees the launch of a board game based on the critically acclaimed videogame based on the hugely popular DC Comics superhero, Batman. Batman: Arkham City – Escape is a two-player board game that pits Batman against all of his greatest foes – from The Joker and Harley Quinn to Poison Ivy and The Riddler – as they try to escape Arkham City.
In this new board game, one player represents Batman and the other player has command of twenty members of Batman’s rogues gallery, with each villain having abilities exclusive to that character. When Batman and a villain occupy the same space on the board, epic battles ensue as Batman utilises his Utility Belt and Combat cards and risks retaliation from each villain. The player controlling the Arkham inmates earns victory points by helping the villains escape Arkham, while the Batman player gains points by apprehending his rivals before they make it out of the city, as well as by saving iconic allies. The first player to earn ten victory points wins the game.
Available throughout the UK from today, Batman: Arkham City – Escape is priced at £34.99 GBP. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest merchandise based on the popular Batman: Arkham City videogame.
