Hot off the heels of announcing that Batman: Arkham Asylum will support NVIDIA 3D Vision, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released five new screenshots of the highly-anticipated game. These screens showcase Batman's ice-cold nemesis, Mr. Freeze.

Behold!...dynamic lighting...and a boot to the face.

Behold!...the governor of California!

That's some impressive lighting and particle effects.

Batman: "Is that volumetric fog I see?"

Dude took one too many chill pills.

The damaged bat suit aesthetic is carrying over into the sequel.

Broken shards of ice will really pop out with PhysX enabled.

London-based developer Rocksteady Studios has stated that the PC build of Arkham City will have "a life of its own." This statement is exemplified by the fact that the PC version will support DirectX 11, Tessellation, and NVIDIA PhysX, essentially making it the definitive copy to own.

PC gamers can get their hands on all this goodness when Batman: Arkham City zips to retail and digital download outlets this October.
