Batman: Arkham City revealed, dated

Catwoman confirmed?

The sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum has been revealed as Batman: Arkham City.

The game will be released in autumn 2011 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

The Game Informer website spilled the beans as part of a teaser for an upcoming issue of the magazine.

Of note in the illustrations provided is Catwoman. She stands back-to-back with Batman, with the caped crusader holding her whip. She's also pictured dangling upside, bound in chains.

According to a press release that's just popped through our virtual letterbox: "Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players soaring into Arkham City, the new maximum security 'home' for all of Gotham City's thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds.

"Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, this highly anticipated sequel introduces a brand-new story that draws together a new all-star cast of classic characters and murderous villains from the Batman universe, as well as a vast range of new and enhanced gameplay features to deliver the ultimate experience as the Dark Knight."
