Our friends over at the Official PlayStation Magazine in the UK have a world exclusive scoop on Batman: Arkham City and they've given us a sneak-peek at the splendid cover art. Deputy Editor, Leon Hurley has this message for you all...

Got a diary? Turn to Thursday, September 2nd and write down “Official PlayStation Magazine UK out!” You can’t miss it, it’s got that stunning new piece of Batman: Arkham City art on the cover. And a massive feature on the super-sequel inside. Team OPM UK visited Rocksteady to talk to the team, see the game in action, eat their donuts, and all to bring you UK exclusive info, interviews and screens. As you can see, Harley’s had a makeover. That’s all we can say online, though.

As well as Batman, we’ve also reviewed F1 2010, every Move launch game and previewed Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood, Smackdown vs Raw 2011 and FIFA 2011. Plus there’s new info on Alice: Madness Returns, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Batman, did we mention Batman?

What do you think of the new look Harley Quinn? Has this teaser image made you even more excited for the return of the Batman? Well, pick up a copy of OPM UK on September 2nd for even more information on Batman: Arkham City.

    this game is gonna lack something the first one had. surprise
  • ChrisAntistaLikesLittleBoys - August 26, 2010 9:58 a.m.

    I'm so glad that she isn't in a nurse's outfit. It wouldn't make any sense.

    Sometimes OPM gets cover art really, really right as they have here. Case in point being that the European box art for Code Veronica X was actually originally a PS2-era OPM cover. They have made some massive blunders in the past, mind you...

    I was hoping they would change the batman model. It looked a little of in AA.

    @cj12297: Jumping the gun much? It's a year away, there have been no solid storyline leaks apart from a basic plot that was released by the developer, there's been no gameplay videos. So you've suddenly concluded that this game will be lacking because you saw a picture of Harley wearing trousers instead of a skirt? Grow up.

    mmm, I think the new look will hark back to the design of Harley in the animated series, although I did like the Nurse outfit alot more however...
  • DarkTone - August 26, 2010 1:26 p.m.

    @Wolverine08 Same here, the nurse outfit suited her well. Good to see her back though.

    Is it just me, or is the character art we've seen so far a little on the steampunk side? Catwoman with the big goggles, Harley here with the leather and buckles and corseted waist... not a complaint, mind you. I love the aesthetic. Considering just the CONCEPT ART is getting me so worked up for this game, when they actually start trotting out the gameplay videos, I just may shit myself.

    "Latest magazine's cover art makes us hot for Batman all over again" Hot for Batman??? Hot for Harley more like.... *Gurns* reCAPTCHA: store_manager addiale... These are gettin ridiculous now man.
  • Cutter9792 - August 26, 2010 1:51 p.m.

    What's that? I can't hear you over her ass talking to me.
  • bamb0o-stick - August 26, 2010 4:05 p.m.

    "Spanking" was the first word that came to mind when I saw that new costume :D
  • H2A2I00 - August 26, 2010 4:17 p.m.

    I will never get tired of looking at this batman art it is just too epic
  • Bitchslapthehomeless - August 26, 2010 4:25 p.m.

    All the concept art has been very black/white/gray, I'm wonder why that chose of color schemes? I'm hoping the game is colorful and not ful of gray buildings and black sky. The first game had some great colors, so I'm hoping they aren't ditching that.
  • NanoElite666 - August 26, 2010 4:39 p.m.

    It looks like he's about two seconds away from punching her in the face.
  • ChrisCultista - August 26, 2010 4:51 p.m.

    "HEY B-MAN! We got the whole city and your little kitty. MISTA J SAYS HELLO! AHAHAHAH!" "Your about to die Harley."
  • marioman50 - August 26, 2010 4:59 p.m.

    I didn't like Harley Quinn's look in the last game. At least this one is a bit more faithful.
  • EnragedTortoise1 - August 26, 2010 6:49 p.m.

    Game informer already did this... but with a different cover, so oh well. Same style, though.

    It is Fall 2011 yet?
