Batman: Arkham City Uses Games for Windows Live Support

August 30, 2011 -

While you'll be able to pick up Batman: Arkham City on Steam and other digital distribution platforms, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has confirmed that the game will use Games For Windows Live for the PC version. If you happen to hate GFWL then this is certainly disheartening news. A WBIE representative has told VG247 that “Arkham City is indeed a G4WL [sic] title.”

A report on Monday indicated that the title might not ship with GFWL for online play - as suggested by retailer Green Man Gaming. It turns out they were completely wrong.

Batman: Arkham City releases October 18 in the U.S., and October 21 in the UK for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.

Pirates, as always, will be able to play the game however they want.

Re: Batman: Arkham City Uses Games for Windows Live Support

I have no problems using Games for Windows Live so this won't be a problem for me either.

Oh boy missing saves and shoty performance here we come...... give me steam anyday....unless they improved GFWL than the last time I used it for a game..... nah give me steam!


Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

Ironically, I never experienced the same issues others had with GFWL with my copy of Arkham Asylum. For all intents and purposes, my experience worked flawlessly.

And how is that ironic, exactly?

Same here regarding my copy of Fallout 3. Zippy just takes issue with anything that doesn't conform to his view.

Or, you know, anecdotal evidence should be dismissed both from you, parent and grand-parent posts. How about we play the number game on this. If 2% lose their games and half a million bought it, that's 10k people. Then, if 5% can't connect, that's 25k. Those numbers are purely imagined, but please look at the big picture. YOUR experience does not reflect all and as much as possible, the greater good should be sought. And you rarely get the greater good by stacking multiple services (increasing the likelihood that one flakes out.)

True, not to mention not EVERYONE who buys such software is going to have an internet connection at all times they want to play, which creates a better case for hacked software.

ConsterApparently Salesforce and the NCAA are also upset over SB 101. I know they're not video-games related, but maybe add a line to the article?03/26/2015 - 2:54pm
Andrew EisenThat said, I doubt that if the movie gets made, it will be similar to either version of the show. But, Star Wars movies will be out again and the designs are still pretty awesome so it's got a chance.03/26/2015 - 2:34pm
