Arkham City is an open world action video game that incorporates elements of stealth and predator tactics. All of the gadgets previously obtained in the first game are present at the start of Arkham City (with the exception of the Line Launcher and the Ultra Batclaw, which is replaced with the regular Batclaw and Sonic Batarangs). The game incorporates more puzzle elements; the use of Batman's "Detective Mode", which highlights elements such as enemy skeletons and clues on-screen, is used to perform forensic activities such as tracing the origin of a sniper round.

- NVIDIA Cards

 

Batman AC becomes really intensive at 2560 x 1600 and you can see the only setup that's able to break the 60 FPS average at this resolution is the GTX 580 SLI one. Everything below that is below the 60 FPS average we aim for.

 

- AMD Cards

 

At 2560 x 1600 you can see across the board the whole AMD line-up struggles to bring us playable FPS. With the CrossFire issues as well, it is pretty much impossible at the moment until we get a new patch or driver update.
