Batman: Arkham Asylum packshot image
The game begins with Batman capturing the Joker after his latest plot, escorting him to Arkham Asylum for imprisonment. Due to Joker's recent attack on Gotham's prison, a large number of sane convicts have been transferred to Arkham. Joker, however has set a trap inside the asylum, using the its own impenetrable defenses against him. Batman must now not only try to escape from the hazards of Arkham, but also recapture the Joker and reveal his true intentions.
Gameplay places just as much focus on Batman's role as a detective as his combat prowess. Most of the game is played through an over-the-shoulder, third person perspective.It has been hinted that certain villains might be playable at some point in the game although this may be as an unlockable element after completing the game. Arkham was chosen as a location because of its limitations including the fact that it's located on an island. Arkham will be a persistent location that the player will be able to freely roam, including an area that serves as Batman's secret on-site Bat Cave.

Batman: Arkham Asylum

Radeon RX 5800 XT

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5800 XT Performance Review

The experience of playing Batman: Arkham Asylum through a Radeon RX 5800 XT is going to return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Those frames are achieved on Batman: Arkham Asylum when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

With such a strong 1080p performance the Radeon RX 5800 XT overshadows the Batman: Arkham Asylum recommended specs. Push things up to Ultra 4K and we still get 200+ frames per sec. Using the graphics card release price, this is a $0 cost per FPS and a $0 per FPS at 1440p Ultra.

Crank things up is what we say. Ultra 4K is our recommended game settings for Batman: Arkham Asylum, as long as you have 2GB of RAM or more. A good processor component to help with these settings would be the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X.

In summary, if you are looking to play Batman: Arkham Asylum in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The Radeon RX 5800 XT can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 200+ frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 200+ FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 200+ FPS in Ultra as well.
