GFWL and SecuROM removed from Batman: Arkham games, owners upgraded to GOTY editions


Pendragon

It was annonced today that they have patched the Steam versions of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City to remove both Games for Windows Live and SecuROM.

 

Non-Steam versions of both games can now also be activated on Steam using the original serial key.

 

Arkham City owners on Steam have been upgraded to Game of The Year Edition, and the game is now playable on Mac. Arkham Asylum, however, does not have Mac support.

 

As with Bioshock 2, save files from GFWL will not be carried over to the new Steam version, although a workaround has been discovered.

This is excellent news. I bought Arkham Asylum probably the first time it went on sale after release, but I was always worried about making progress in this game (I have serious anxiety when my save games aren't securely backed up to the cloud). GFWL encrypted save files are awful, and couldn't be relied on to transfer between new PCs (I believe I have switched/formatted computers 4 or 5 times since 2011). Finally I'll get a chance to play this game properly :).

For reference, GFWL saves transfer without issues as long as you also transfer %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\XLive since that contains the associated gamertags.

FYI: Retail key redemption has not worked since the update.  Valve and WB are looking into it and hopefully it will be fixed soon.
