New ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ DLC Arrives Next Week

By August 15, 2015

Batman: Arkham Knight released at the end of June, receiving almost universal acclaim from gamers and critics alike. Here at GeekNation, Arkham Knight has the distinction of being the first video game to receive a perfect score in a GeekNation Game Review, but the story of the game isn’t over yet. Recently, it was revealed that the game’s next DLC content pack will feature a serie sof skins for Batman, Robin, Nightwing, and Catwoman, as well as a pack featuring the 1989 version of the iconic Batmobile designed by the brilliant Anton Furst, as featured in 1989′s Batman and 1992′s Batman Returns.

On the latest episode of “Arkham Insider,” Rocksteady Studios revealed the gameplay and racing tracks featuring and inspired by the ’89 car. See it below.

While it’s great seeing the iconic version of the Batmobile in the beautiful engine of Arkham Knight, there are still some questions left over after watching this video. For instance, they failed to mention whether or not the car will be able to be used in the game’s story or free-roaming modes, a valid question since the 1989 version of the car is vastly different from the design used in the main game. Did Rocksteady put some extra work in to be able to make the care usable in battle modes, or in story cutscenes featuring the car take on passengers? We likely won’t know with absolute certainty until the pack becomes available for download. Still, as one of the most classic iterations of Batman’s most iconic pieces of weaponry, it should be a thrill to be able to play with the car when the pack is released.

The “1989 Pack” is scheduled to be released sometime next week, which likely means it’ll start being available on the PlayStation Store and on Xbox Live this coming Tuesday, August 18th. For more on Arkham Knight as new content takes form, keep it locked on GeekNation!
