Arkham Knight Limited Edition Potentially Spoils Game Ending
Rocksteady's newest action-adventure game, Batman: Arkham Knight will be soaring onto consoles this summer, but will this be Batman's last stand?
It's been a known fact that this will be the last installment of the Batman: Arkham series that Rocksteady will be developing, but now a limited edition statue may have given away its ending. Warner Bros. has come out with an exclusive collection that can be bought in addition to the game with a steelbook cover, custom art book, comic book, and a 12-inch statue of Batman, Polygon reports. However, upon the image of the limited edition bundle appearing on Amazon UK, it was quickly pointed out that the plaque that Batman is standing on could very well lead to a spoiler.

Although Amazon has since taken the photo off of its site, screengrabs show the brief glimpse of Project Triforce's planned collectible. The plaque underneath Batman clearly says, "From a grateful city, in memory of the Gotham Knight." The original picture, and the one on Amazon now, merely says "The Gotham Knight" on the base. While this statement could have a variety of meanings, the big question is, does Batman die? It could mean other things as well, such as: Batman could have gotten a replacement, could have faked his death, or could have just gotten seriously injured. It's worth noting though that Rocksteady did kill off a major player in the Bat-verse in its last entry, which indicates just how far the developer is willing to go for its overarching story.
Batman: Arkham Knight will be out on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on June 2. We'll all just have to wait until then to find out what's in store.
