Gameloft’s The Dark Knight Rises game hits iOS App Store, Batman Arkham City Lockdown on sale [Update: Live in US!]

I’ve been waiting for this game for a long time.

Gameloft announced The Dark Knight Rises for both Android and iOS back in June. When the announcement was made, the game studio also said that the game’s release would coincide with the movie The Dark Knight Rises, which debuts tomorrow, July 20. The game arrived today, a day early – but I don’t think anybody’s going to care.

The game takes place in a completely open Gotham City, which is somewhat reminiscent of what Gameloft did with the recently-released The Amazing Spider-Man. If you’ve played that game, you’ll know that you can go virtually anywhere in New York City, so I’m expecting the same level of freedom in the new Batman game, as well.

After all, it has been released before the movie, and spoilers are a moviegoer’s worst enemy. Gameloft’s The Dark Knight Rises is available in the New Zealand and US App Stores for $9.99 and $6.99, respectively. The Android version hasn’t been released yet, but I’d expect to see that soon.

In the meantime, if you own an iOS device, you should check out Batman Arkham City Lockdown: the price has dropped to $0.99 in anticipation for the movie. It’s not developed by Gameloft nor is it an open-world game, but it’s still an enjoyable play, nonetheless – especially at the low price of one dollar.
