According to Amazon.co.uk, Batman: Arkham Knight was the most pre-ordered game in January. That should come as little surprise considering the hype and success of the previous games in the franchise.
So, what else got pre-ordered a bunch of times?
Also scoring high was Dying Light, with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt coming in third.
Despite a much-hyped beta last month, Evolve didn’t place in the Top 10, placing at number 11.
Is there a reason that Arkham Knight beat the snot out of everything else?
Arkham Knight‘s success can likely be attributed to pre-orders for the exclusive Limited Edition last month.
What’s so special about the Limited Edition?
The £79.99 edition contains an exclusive art book, comic book and statue and that statue appears to give away a major spoiler for the plot line of the game.
