Batman: Arkham Knight’s Season Pass Lets You Play as Batgirl

Last week saw publisher Warner Bros. announce the Season Pass for Batman: Arkham Knight. The announcement carried little details, and revealed that the additional paid content would flow for six months straight after the game’s launch.

What didn’t bode well with players was that the Season Pass carried a pretty hefty price of $39.99/£32.99. No one was too pleased with listening to Warner simply promise new story missions, cosmetic variants, and then slap on an expensive tag.

Following the outcry, Rocksteady Studios came forward this weekend to reveal more details about the Season Pass.

Batgirl: A Matter of Family
An all new prequel story expansion in an entirely new location where you play as Batgirl for the very first time in the Arkham series – check out the first render of Batgirl.

The Season of Infamy
Play as Batman in all new story missions featuring legendary super-villains invading Gotham City, with new story arcs, missions and gameplay features.

Gotham City Stories
Play as Batman’s key allies in narrative missions extending their storylines, from both before and after the events in Batman: Arkham Knight.

Legendary Batmobiles with Themed Tracks
Drive the most iconic Batmobiles from Batman’s 75-year history, on custom-built race tracks, each themed to that Batmobile’s specific era. Every Batmobile will be drivable across every race track.

Crimefighter Challenge Maps
Engage in a series of new challenge maps utilizing the unique play styles of Batman and his allies.

Character Skins
A variety of skins from across the eras for Batman, Robin, Nightwing and Catwoman.

“We’ll be building more narrative, more missions, more challenges and more characters and vehicles that we want players to experience, even though they didn’t fit into the storyline of Batman: Arkham Knight,” promised the developer.

Batman: Arkham Knight also has a Premium Edition, which contains both the game and Season Pass. This will run you $99.99/£87.98 on consoles and $79.99/£67.98 on PC. With the new details, do you agree with Rocksteady that the Season Pass is worth the price quoted?

Batman: Arkham Knight will be released on June 23 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
