Rocksteady and Batman: Arkham Knight has caught a lot of flack from critics and fans alike for what people perceive as sub-par DLC offerings. After a litany of levied complaints, Rocksteady released the prospective DLC release schedule along with what would be included.
However, while we knew a general outline of what to expect, Rocksteady expanded on the details of the DLC released today, fleshing out what players can expect from the Season of Infamy: Most Wanted.
According to Rocksteady, the story expansions were designed to tie up loose ends of previous Arkham titles, with each returning character improved and built from scratch. For instance, mission “In From the Cold” furthers Batman’s “friendly” relationship with Mr. Freeze in his attempt to save Nora. Meanwhile, in “Beneath the Surface” players will discover what has happened to Killer Croc and why his mutation has become even worse.
On top of these two Arkham cornerstone characters, The Mad Hatter and Ra’s Al Ghul make a triumphant return. To top off the list, Rocksteady managed to throw in the Original Arkham Batmobile, 2008 Movie Batman Skin, Crime Fighter Challenge Pack #5, and the Rocksteady Themed Batmobile Skin.
Until players can finish the new DLC and decide whether the additions substantiate the $40 season pass price tag, the debate will still rage about whether the content was worth the price. As mentioned earlier, the DLC is available today on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. However, catch the December DLC trailer (below) showing all of it in action:
