Batman: Arkham Knight December DLC Release Date Announced, New Footage Revealed

Season of Infamy.

68 Comments

Batman: Arkham Knight's December DLC will arrive on December 22, Rocksteady Studios has announced. The expansion is called Season of Infamy, and, among other things, it delivers Batman and Batmobile skins based on Christopher Nolan's 2008 Caped Crusader movie, The Dark Knight.

Rocksteady has also posted the final "Arkham Insider" video feature 2015. This one shows off the Season of Infamy content, featuring insight from a number of developers, including studio head Sefton Hill.

Hill also talks about saying goodbye to the Batman Arkham series, though you'll notice he does not outright 100 percent confirm that Rocksteady won't ever make another Batman game. As for what's next for Rocksteady, whatever it is, it may feature multiplayer in some way, according to a recent job listing.

Season of Infamy, which also includes the other content seen in this mosaic, is included with the Arkham Knight DLC pass or can be purchased individually on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

I hope this is the DLC where they finally turn it around because every piece of DLC for the past 5 months has come with an asterisk.

@turtlesintime: I'm mostly looking forward to driving the original Arkham Batmobile, I have ALWAYS wanted to drive that thing since Asylum!

I am still only nearly 50% complete on PC with this game not counting DLC but i am really enjoying it. It's a beautifully made game if only they lessoned the Tank sequences a bit.

As long as you have a high end single GPU it's a beautifully made game anyhow.

It certainly offers alot of variety for the money for a AAA game at any rate.

I thought Arkham Knight was a really good game, but I've never had much desire to play any Arkham games DLC. The only time I wanted to kind of play one, but didn't end up doing so was Origins' Cold, Cold Heart. The Dark Knight suit is awesome though, but I don't really want to pay money to play with it.

@jack00: it's obvious that they still haven't milked this game enough so you are still going to have to wait a while.

@CagedOkami: It's better but I wouldn't waste your money on it, still plenty of issues that need to be work through. There are many here who will put up with those issues, so it's whatever you want to tolerate at this point.

@CagedOkami: yup, but that's with a gtx 970. I play it on ultra with AA off and it's basically locked at 60fps. I turned the AA off because it hurts the lighting. On a 760 it ran well at about 30fps at med to high settings.

@CagedOkami: Yes it is. I have an 700gb hdd, 8gb RAM, and R9 280 and its been running fine for me. Its a graphics whore though. 3gb and almost all of it is being consumed with none of the Nvidia stuff and extra smoke and extra special rain turned on. Most settings are on high.

@Cryio: Rubbish i play it maxed out in 1440p average 70-90 fps with a 980ti . Only have a 6 year old I7 930 with 12GB as well. You just need a strong GPU.

I do have Gsync as well though. It is a lifesaver for PC gaming as far as Nvidia cards go.

@jedikv: 980ti i would recommend really lol. The 980 i have as well and it doesn't handle the game nearly so well. It's a G1 gaming 980 which is a reasonably good one.

It depends if you want all the nice visuals. You can play the game on lesser settings but it loses alot of the depth in the graphics on lower settings.

Just Cause 3 is the same , it plays well on 970 or above but 980ti you can max it out at over 80 fps in 1440p sometimes it hits 100 fps. It's just amazing flying the wingsuit around at this sort of framerate.

@deviltaz35: Lol that's both amazing and kind of sad that a plain 980 has trouble with this game. I 'only' got a 290x so I'm definitely out of the running on trying this game sadly.

@jedikv: My 980 was ok at 1080p but seeing this game needs extra Vram than 4GB probably didn't help. At least to get decent textures it does.

The 980ti with the extra 2GB Vram helped considerably in this regard, especially at 1440p

980 was good at 1080p though.

My guess is this 'expansion' will be about 5 hrs long.
