One of the best received PlayStation VR games on the market is finally making the jump to PC, WB Interactive confirmed this week. A new trailer for the PC port of Batman: Arkham VR confirms Rift and Vive owners’ wait for Bruce Wayne’s virtual adventure is nearly over.

If you aren’t familiar, Batman: Arkham VR is a new adventure set in the same universe as WB Montreal and Rocksteady Studios’ Arkhamverse. But you don’t actually need much existing familiarity with the Arkham games, outside of well-known characters like Penguin or Nightwing, because Batman: Arkham VR is a standalone experience. It’s also much shorter than previous Arkham games; a story that most players will finish in two or three hours.

There isn’t much gameplay footage in this week’s Batman: Arkham VR promotional footage, which intersperses a few clips with moving shots of Oculus and HTC’s VR headsets. But this is one of those projects that most of us can gauge our interest in without needing to see a new video. Obviously, the cost of entry for the VR marketplace is still a major obstacle for most gamers. But it’s probably safe to assume many Rift and Vive owners are at least vaguely interested in donning the Dark Knight’s cape and cowl in the safety of their own home.

For another look at Batman: Arkham VR, take a few minutes to watch the PC announcement trailer from WB Interactive and Rocksteady. Then head down to the comments section and let us know if you’re planning to pick up Batman: Arkham VR when the game debuts.

Batman: Arkham VR is currently available on PlayStation VR. The game hits PC on April 25.
