Warner Bros. Interactive and DC Entertainment announced today that their upcoming title Batman: Arkham City will be supporting stereoscopic 3D and anaglyphic 3D support! It looks like another game is jumping on 3D bandwagon!
Arkham City is one of the most highly anticipated games this year, and the inclusion of 3D support should bode well for those hoping to get some use out of their 3DTVs – or anyone thinking about buying one.
Developers everywhere have expressed that 3d technology is not quite ready to reach full market penetration, or truly be worthwhile. Despite that, it is awesome awesome to see some developers try and incorporate this technology into their games – and also giving the option to play with or without 3D.
Stated earlier, Batman: Arkham City will definitely be supporting anaglyhpic 3D. This means, if you only own an HDTV, you will still be able to play the game in 3D. Anaglyphic is different from stereoscopic for one reason – you get to go old school and rock those red and blue lense glasses! Although, anaglyphic does not produce the same high quality of 3D, it is much more cost-effective to its alternative, stereoscopic. I am not sure if you know this, but Batman: Arkham Asylum also supported this type of 3D integration and the Game of They Year edition even came with a pair of 3D glasses.
Gamescom 2011 is about to start and there has been a lot of mention of Batman: Arkham City. Everything from the Penguin, the Riddler, the reveal of Mr. Freeze to 3D support, it will be interesting to see if Warner Bros. can even come up with anything else to announce related to the title.
