Batman: Arkham Origins Season Pass DetailedBy: Sean Patterson - September 26, 2013
Yesterday, Warner Bros. revealed that everyone who pre-orders the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins will receive the “Deathstroke Challenge Pack” for free. The add-on allows players to take on the role of Deathstroke (with several different costumes) in two different missions – one stealth and the other combat-focused.
Today, Warner Bros. further expanded its Arkham Origins announcements with the reveal of the game’s DLC season pass. The content bundle will cost $20, and comes with the promise of five future DLC add-ons. The season pass will be available for all systems (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC) when the game launches on October 25.
Of the five planned DLC packs for Arkham Origins, over half of them are costume packs. One pack contains the “Gotham by Gaslight” and “Brightest Day” skins for Batman. Two others have “New Millennium” and “Infinite Earths” skins for both Batman and Robin.
The other two packs actually have new game content. One is a series of challenge maps called “Initiation,” in which players take on the role of a young Bruce Wayne as he learns his ninja skills from Kirigi. The other is an “all-new story campaign” for Arkham Origins. Nothing has been revealed about the new campaign content, but it’s already likely to be the most popular of the planned DLC just announced.
