Batman Arkham City is a board game now
Batman: Arkham City Escape is a board game based on the game sequel to the game based on the comics, due in the UK this June (and elsewhere in "Q2") from Cryptozoic Games.

In the two-player game, one player controls Batman's villains, using their special abilities to escape from Arkham City with hostages in tow. The other player controls Batman, using his stealth, tools, and impressive glower to prevent their escape. Randomly located gargoyles help him travel around the board, just like in the video game.

BatmanTM: Arkham City Escape to be released June

Based on the award winning 2011 game of the year, BatmanTM: Arkham City Escape is a two player board game that pits Batman against all of his greatest foes as they try to escape Arkham!

One player will take on the role of Batman while the other will control all villains. There are 40 of Batman's enemies available to play, each with exclusive special abilities, all trying to escape the clutches of the Dark Knight by taking hostages and fleeing Arkham. Batman will use special gadgets from his Utility Belt and randomly placed gargoyles to make his way across the board, save his iconic allies and stop Arkham's villains.

As the villains are drawn out randomly at the beginning of a play session, each game will develop differently, creating an unlimited number of available scenarios.

Another video game licensed board game, Bioshock Infinite: Siege of Columbia, will be be available in the summer of 2013 from Esdevium Games.

The BatmanTM: Arkham City Escape game will be available in the UK late May – early June with an a RRP of 34.99.
