Batman Arkham Asylum leaked

without comments


As you already may notice, illegal copy of Batman Arkham Asylum PC version emerged on torrents trackers.

We do not recommend to download it, as many sources indicate that this version is buggy, unstable,  is missing some features and most important – GPU PhysX content is broken.

And remember – pirating games is bad, m’kay ?
