Arkham Knight – the content behind the pass

Earlier this week, Rocksteady Studios announced that Batman: Arkham Knight would be receiving a Season Pass that had quite the price tag – naturally this was met with widespread disappointment from fans, mainly feeling that the pass should have at least been included in some of the more expensive Arkham Knight editions.

The content of the pass is due to be delivered during the six months following the game’s release, and while the team at Rocksteady aren’t ready to share the full content of what the pass includes, they are aware that they are asking a lot from fans – with a pass that is nearly as expensive as the game itself. Rocksteady have therefore decided to reveal some of the Season Pass content, which has certainly piqued my interest!

  • Batgirl: A Matter of Family
  • The Season of Infamy
  • Gotham City Stories
  • Legendary Batmobiles with Themed Tracks
  • Crimefighter Challenge Maps
  • Character Skins

For more details on the content, take a look at the Arkham Knight forums.

Arkham Knight trailer shows off returning characters and more

Batman-Arkham-Knight-e3-6

Earlier today the trailer below leaked ahead of its release, it seems to be the in thing at the moment, Warner Brothers have now officially lifted the lid on the “All who follow you” trailer and it looks awesome!

If you’re trying to keep a closed lid on everything Dark Knight, then you may want to avoid this trailer, as it shows of a load of characters and some really neat new stuff.

Right, so there’s the spoiler alert klaxon sounded… now on to the awesome stuff. The trailer shows off some great new features, like co-op take downs, something that Rocksteady said wouldn’t happen. It does however look like they’ve taken on board feedback from community forums and made it to be an AI controlled co-operative skull mashing rather than the standard local/online co-op that we all know and love.

There are also returning characters such as Catwoman, Robin and Nightwing who played parts in the previous Arkham games. You may also spot Azrael lighting up Gotham’s skyline with rooftop fires.

The trailer still leaves a lot of questions, which is good, I can’t wait to get my hands on it when it releases in June.

Batman: Arkham Knight delayed

Bad news Batman fans, Arkham Knight has been delayed.

Sefton Hill, Game Director at Rocksteady released a statement confirming that the game will now release on June 23.

We’re a developer that hates to make any compromises, so we are sorry to say this means it’s going to be just a little bit longer until you can play the epic conclusion to the Arkham trilogy. As a reward for your patience and understanding, and to make the wait even more unbearable, we are pleased to whet your appetite with a new gameplay video of Batman: Arkham Knight. Thanks so much from everyone at Rocksteady for your continued support. We are working as hard as we can to make you proud.
