This Friday, GameStop revealed their preorder exclusive Scarecrow Challenge Maps for Batman: Arkham Asylum, and the villain's new look certainly coincides with his fear-inducing powers.

Players who preorder Batman: Arkham Asylum from GameStop will gain access to the Dem Bones Scarecrow Challenge Maps for the game, which pit Batman against a horde of skeletal hallucinations courtesy of Jonathan Crane. And while skellingtons are indeed creepy, they've got nothing on the new design for Crane, who looks like he's just washed up on shore after a stint in BioShock's Rapture.

See? A man in a scarecrow costume is scary. A man in a stylized scarecrow costume with hypodermic needles for fingers? Terrifying.

If this is Rocksteady's Scarecrow, I'd hate to see their Mrs. King.

this is becoming a farce. 'you only get this this and this in the game if you preorder from us' it happens in the UK with GAME, i bet the same deal goes down with them. A costume here or a new car there isn't that bad, but a whole set of challenge maps that will increase the longevity of the game? Should be illegal.
