Batman: Arkham City DLC: Batcave Challenge map pack release date

By Updated on

Batman: Arkham City has been a massive success for Rocksteady Studios since it was first released back in October this year, today we can confirm the date that more downloadable-content will hit Xbox Live and the PlayStation network thanks to a recent tweet from the official Arkham City News Twitter feed.

You can see the tweet below, as you can see it does not state the name of the downloadable content or its price, however multiple sources have suggested that it will be called the Challenge map pack, or perhaps the Batcave Challenge map pack. One thing which is clear is that it will arrive on December 20th.

Brand new DLC coming December 20th with all new Batcave. Jokers carnival and the iceberg lounge also available to download then!

As you can probably tell details are extremely scarce at present, but it looks clear that this DLC will just bring new challenges to the game and no new storylines, this has infuriated some gamers so much that they set up a petition over at the Arkham City forums to urge Rocksteady Studios to bring story-based content to the game as Challenge maps are in their words “boring and repetitive” – do you agree?

If you look back at Batman: Arkham Asylum you will see that the DLC which was brought to this game consisted of new maps and map packs, we really think that gamers would happily spend more on DLC if it consisted of new stories to further enhance the game’s campaign, however some people say that such content would ruin the game’s ending.

Hopefully we will hear more about this challenge pack soon, when we do we will keep you posted so keep checking Product-Reviews.net for all of the latest news!
