    Insane Night Map Pack available for free and dated

    Eidos Interactive and Warner Bros. Interactive announced the Insane Night Map Pack for Batman:Arkham Asylum. The good news is that it’s coming September 17 on PSN, XBL, and Games for Windows and the better part is that it’s free. The pack will include two new challenge maps. “In the ‘Totally Insane’ FreeFlow Combat map, players will be tested to their fullest as scores of escaped lunatics bear down upon BATMAN as they make their escape through the asylum’s secure records facility.

One thing gamers and followers of previous titles may not be expecting is a decent game. “Arkham Asylum” seems to revolve around the criminals of Gotham City, all mixed together in psychopathic hell. Batman’s previous track-record may have created a
