So, you might recall that in September last year, Rocksteady and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced that Batman: Arkham Knight would be getting two different Collector’s Editions. The one comes with a swanky Batmobile model; the other comes with a super imposing Batman statue as he looms over a Gotham City skyline.
Up until now that statue has had very specific photos released onto the web. A recent listing for the Collector’s Edition on Amazon’s UK website seems to have a different picture with a plaque on the base of the statue. The picture has since been replaced, but that plaque might have let slip a pretty massive spoiler.
Don’t hit the jump if you don’t want to risk reading a potential spoiler.
That plaque reads, “From a Grateful City In Memory of the Gotham Knight”. The implication: Bats totally pegs at the end of the game. If he doesn’t peg, then maybe he gets over Gotham’s dreary vibe, quits in a fit of rage and moves off to live in the Bahamas. OR, the game ends in a similar way to how Nolan ended his Batman film trilogy, which I won’t detail in case you’ve been living under a rock for, I don’t know, three years now.
This of course begs the question: would Rocksteady knowingly put a spoiler on a piece of Collector’s Edition loot that would then run the risk of ruining the game before the disc has even entered the PC/console? Probably not.
