By now many of our readers must be salivating at the thought that Batman: Arkham City’s release is just around the corner. We have been doing our utmost to bring news of the sequel as the developers, Rocksteady Studios, have teased it themselves. Having listed a long cast of characters that are set to appear in the game, we revealed that a couple of them would only be available through DLC and today we have a release date and a price for them.
Robin is one of the main characters from the comic books and is sure to be a kick-ass character to play as, however his role in Arkham City doesn’t appear to be an integral one as he is one of the characters that will have be purchased through DLC. We recently brought our readers footage of the Dark Knight’s companion in action and can now confirm that if you don’t get the Robin DLC through a pre-order then you can still snap it up later on November 22nd for just $6.99.
Another DLC that is set to be made available after the game’s release is the alternative Batman skins package. Until now it was thought that these alternate costumes would only be available through pre-ordering and depending on where the game was pre-ordered from determined what skin you would get. In a previous article we presented our readers with all six costumes that are available and while there is no confirmation that they will all be included in the DLC we believe the likelihood is it will. If you are interested it will cost just $4.99 and will be out December 6th.
Catwoman and Nightwing are two more characters that will also be available through DLS, however according to Myniritori Catwoman will only be available to those who buy the game new and no details have been revealed about the Nightwing DLC as of yet. Which DLC are you most looking forward to?
