One of the draws of virtual reality is that you can do things you can't do in real life. If one of your fantasies is to find out what it's like to be the Dark Knight, look no further than Batman: Arkham VR. Formerly a PlayStation VR exclusive, the title is coming to the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive on April 25.

Rocksteady's VR incarnation of the Batman: Arkham series is much less in-depth than its console counterparts, but it's the first in the series to offer a first-person perspective of the caped crusader. Explore the Bat Cave, visit locations around the city and investigate crime scenes.

More Information

We tried Batman: Arkham VR out with the PSVR, and we think it would be a more entertaining experience with the superior tracking and motion controls of the PC-powered VR systems.

Official pricing for the Rift and Vive versions has yet to be announced, but we expect it to be comparable to the PSVR edition's US$20 price point.
