The Batman: Assault On Arkham wiki last edited by EPYON8675 on 08/08/16 08:17AM View full history

Gotham is in great danger when the government assembles a group of villains — code named the Suicide Squad — and forces them to break into Arkham Asylum to retrieve top secret information stolen by the Riddler. Things take a turn for the worse when one of the Squad members (Harley Quinn) frees the Joker, who is intent on blowing up Arkham Asylum and Gotham City. Batman must use his super hero wits and strength to thwart the wicked plans of the Joker and the Suicide Squad.

The feature will be set in the same universe as the Batman: Arkham games and will be set after the 2012 video game Batman: Arkham Origins.

Note: Batman: Assault on Arkham was released digitally July 29, 2014 prior to its physical release August 12, 2014
