Batman: Arkham Knight August DLC Revealed, Developed by Rocksteady

Batman and Batmobile skins based on the 1989 movie and more coming to the action game next month.

71 Comments

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."

No Caption Provided

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.

No Caption Provided

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."

So what if the PC version is bad? That's what you get for your so called "masterrace" bullshit. Honestly I understand why WB don't seem to care about making it better either. All PC gamers are just gonna pirate it anyway or buy it off of 10$ Steam sales when it's been out for a few years. There is no profit in making PC games anymore and there hasn't been for a long time and won't ever be again. You'll keep getting console ports and beg for great exclusive console IP's such as Bloodborne so you can pirate it, 'cause you're cheap-asses like Scrooge McDuck. If you got a problem with that I suggest you save up and buy a PS4. Much cheaper than a high end PC anyway and the graphics aren't all that noticably different, as many members of the mustard rice seems to have fooled themselves into believing.

I have just completed the game main story and all the other secondary missions, but now I have 260 puzzles from Riddler (which is totally non-sense and boring). Half would be enough, seriously.

LEARN rocksteady, you have no modes to use the other characters in! Who would want skins?

Dual fighting had huge potential for game modes, such a lousy excuse of dlc. I'm not even going to mention Harley Quinn length.

Batgirl DLC was garbage and now this half a$$ed pos and people pay for this sh!t. Witcher 3 DLC's gave free armor and missions for FREE! This is how DLC should be approached not just a cash grab by WB & Rocksteady.

@coop36: I'm just truly sad for those that paid for the PC version and the Season pass. I would rather that they fix the PC version before trying to grab more money with DLC.

@coop36: Are we praying for their minds, or for the luck of the ones who got someone else to buy it for them? I'm up for both, because my wife said something the other day about not buying me a game in a long time.......

That's it? Skins? Since I have the pc version I can't say anything about the Batgirl DLC yet but nothing except a skin pack in August seems lame. At least since I have the pc version I'll be able to use the Nightwing skin in free roam when it finally comes out, there's a mod for that

@dark_princess29: Harley DLC was available for free from walmart with the standard game I believe. That's the one I got, and I'm pretty sure I got all of her stuff (not going to say for sure, I could be missing an "exclusive" map or outfit).

But yes, it was a big con.

The "Iconic" Batsuit is the one worn by Dick Grayson during his tenure as Batman. Note the telltale utility belt and the gloves.

Here's to hoping you can use this as a skin for Nightwing, or maybe we'll see story DLC down the road where Dick is Batman.

more skins where the **** are the AR challenges there is only like four combat challenges and a few predator that aren't even that challenging and like ten fucking batmobile challenges and you cant change who you play as for them. i dont understand why you cant change who you play as in these AR challenges as im pretty sure that in the previous games you could switch from the start. and why cant catwomen join you in fights when you release her from riddler?? showcasing this dual fighting and you only get to do it a few times at certain points in the game. why wasnt there a mechanic to call in Robin or Nightwing while roaming the city to jump in suddenly while in a fight then grapple out when its over? they just gave them excuses to not be used like i need you here robin to do this and i need you over there nightwing to do that and be safe pffffff. dont get me wrong i love the game seeing joker pop up from time to time while exploring was amazing the combat is as slick as ever but i just feel they left alot out that they clearly had in previous games or they just holding it back for DLC............SHAME....DING.....SHAME.

@adamus: Yeah lack of being able to change characters in AR challenge or even having a challenge mode was real upsetting. For people who have finished the game these costumes are basically a waste because all we can use is Batman's. If I wanted to use the new costumes for Robin, Nightwing, or Catwoman I would have to start a new game which isn't bad, but having a challenge mode or letting us switch characters in AR mode would be better. Challenge mode is coming in future DLC though but it is BS we have to pay for it.

I LOVE the Black & White Iconic outfit. That's pretty close to my ideal Batman costume right there. And that Batman film skins look pretty awesome, too.

Shame that, as a PC gamer, I won't be seeing them any time soon.

I'm assuming they will also release some kind of AR Challenges for Catwoman, Robin & Nightwing, otherwise what's the point in releasing these skins?

Whats the point of giving Robin, Catwoman, and Nightwing costumes if you can't play them at will?

LOVE that Batmobile! Wouldn't it be sweet if they added TAS variant?

Also cool that, with the inclusion of the Origins costume (and assuming Batman didn't change costumes between Asylum and City) all the Arkham Batsuits are accounted for!

@dranwarren: Publishers get around twice the net profit off PC game sales over consoles compared to retail console game sales which still make up the majority of console game sales and the previous Batman games each made up around a third of their total sales. So no, they don't get more revenue from consoles. Never mind that PC versions of many games continue to sell for years after they're released.

@Thanatos2k: This stuff would have been ready pre release, just chopped it so they could make more money. Doubt it has any affect on how broken the PC version still is.

@kyelo: But if they knew about the problems with the PC version even before release....... then any work done on ANY DLC and not on fixing the PC version is B.S. You make an excellent point, but for this game, they screwed the pooch.

A handful of skins do not an expansion make. This is little better than horse armor.
