"The costume DLC is going to be available with the season pass and it's basically a bonus right?" Voghel told IGN. "There's going to be a lot of value in that season pass. One of the items we can't talk about yet…we'll just wait for the gamers to really see what the entire package contains. It's going to be a big deal."

The $20 Batman: Arkham Origins season pass features the Millenium and Infinite Earths skins packs (comprising twelve skins in all), as well as the Gotham by Gaslight and Brightest Day Batman skins.

The pass also features Arkham Origins Initiation, a new mode where gamers will play as Bruce Wayne before he became Batman in new challenge maps. Lastly, the season pass packs in an all-new story campaign that Warner Bros. is not talking about yet.

Batman: Arkham Origins, a prequel to the main storyline, launches on October 25 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii U. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are not in development.

In Batman: Arkham Origins, gamers will play as a "young, unrefined" Batman as he faces pivotal moments in his early career. Players will meet many important figures in the Batman universe for the first time in Arkham Origins.

The game also includes a series-first multiplayer mode (which will not be supported on the Wii U), developed by Brink studio Splash Damage.
