Warner Bros. Games and HTC Vive have today revealed via the HTC Vive Facebook Page that the acclaimed VR game Batman Arkham VR is now set to be released on HTC Vive and Oculus Rift at the end of the month on April 25, 2017.

Originally announced as a PlayStation VR exclusive, Batman Arkham VR had a successful launch in November 2016, and now HTC Vive and Oculus Rift owners get the chance to experience what it’s like to be Batman in virtual reality.

Bringing Batman to VR was a very rewarding experience for us here at Rocksteady. 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,” said Sefton Hill, Creative Director, Rocksteady Studios. “We’re thrilled that PC players can finally wear the cowl for themselves and take on the role of the World’s Greatest Detective with the addition of the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift versions.

The game will support the Vive Controller and Oculus Touch, as well as the PlayStation DualShock 4 controller, Xbox One controller and Steam controller.
