Batman: Arkham Asylum Adopts NVIDIA PhysX Technology and Screens

Immersive adventure unfolds in stunning detail
Eidos Interactive, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NVIDIA Corporation have announced that the PC version of Batman: Arkham Asylum will feature NVIDIA PhysX technology which allows for the creation of realistic worlds full of interactive materials and objects. With PhysX technology enabled, players can explore darkened corridors packed with volumetric fog which reacts to Batman's movement and cobwebs which tear with his passing. Throughout the game, the decaying gothic architecture is realized with wall tiles chipping and breaking, stone pillars crumbling upon impact, and particles from breaking glass and debris shattering and falling down around Batmanís feet. Batman: Arkham Asylum will be available in the UK on August 28th, for Xbox 360, PC and PS3. Two screenshots have been inserted in our gallery.
