Alongside the release of Batman: Arkham Knight's first story expansion today, Warner Bros. has announced the add-on content coming to the action game in August. The publisher also confirmed that this content, and the rest of the game's expansions, will be developed by the game's main team, Rocksteady Studios.

The Batgirl-focused A Matter of Family expansion, available now on all platforms except PC, was developed externally at Batman: Arkham Origins studio WB Games Montreal.

Arkham Knight's August DLC, which will launch first for season pass owners, includes:

1989 Movie Batmobile Pack -- Comes with Batman and Batmobile skins based on Tim Burton's 1989 Batman movie. Also included are two Batmobile tracks "inspired by the film's sequel."

The Bat-Family Skins Pack -- Comes with six character skins based on alternate timelines: 1990s Catwoman, One Year Later Robin, Arkham Origins Batman, Iconic Grey & Black Batman, 1970s Batman, and the Original Arkham Nightwing.

Warner Bros. did not announce release dates for either expansion, nor did the company say how much they will cost individually. We'll have that information for you as soon as it becomes available.

In other recent Arkham Knight news, the PC edition of the game is still facing issues. As a result, the game remains unavailable to buy at major retailers and the game's DLC has been delayed. Making matters potentially worse, a report earlier this month claimed that Warner Bros. knew about the issues for Arkham Knight on PC "for months."
