Hey guys. If you go to Batman Arkham City's website, and scroll all the way to the bottom, in the bottom right corner, it says "Forums launching soon."

Agreed, but I hope the viral campaign does more than use a guard's name and some sound recordings. I would like the viral campaign to actually give as new intel on facing the new enemies and be more interactive with the game.

Also, I hope when they decide the winners they tell them they won BEFORE the came is released. I never opened the copy I won because I bought the standard edition, but would like to have been told ahead of time as the version given away had extra challenge maps and the batarang. Still free money...

I would think we would get them in the next 2-3 months. I don't think they would say coming soon when it was going to be almost a year.

Well Mortal Kombat was the first WB game to have forums on their website, so im assuming that Arkham City will have something similar

They say Arkham City is coming soon and that is in September, soon is subjective for some people it means in a couple of days, weeks, months, or even a year.

I've only seen one site say it but that's not the point, point is soon can mean many things.

"Soon" is subjective when its from multiple sources. Rocksteady says "Arkham City coming fall 2011" & "Forums launching soon". Forums are an integral part of marketing & hype they'll be launching them SOONER :) rather than later. Either way I don't think "soon" means any more than 2 months in relation to the game's release.

how about i market you soon rather than later :nut:

I kid, it's just strange that they don't just expand this one to have a subsection to both games. It would be easier, and I get the feeling people will jump ship and just spend their time at the other. Multiple forums = divided community

Good call by WB. One of the reasons for Arkham Asylum's success was forums like these.

If I under stand correctly, you want this board to have an Arkham City subsection?

I don't think that would be possible. because these boards advertise Eidos' current or past games, and may be an infringement of copyright.

Maybe if they explicitly state Arkham city is not theirs and receive permission from WB it'd be possible. But I don't think Eidos will go to that lengths. They don't receive much profit from these forums anyway.
