The final piece of DLC for Batman: Arkham Knight launches on December 22nd, tomorrow. It wraps up with some really kick-butt material, including some brand new locations, brand new enemies, brand new moves and one of the most requested pieces of DLC out of any Batman game: the 2008 Batman suit.
Gamespot did a quick write-up on the final piece of DLC for Batman: Arkham Knight in 2015 called the Season of Infamy. The contents of the DLC are rolled out in a lengthy 10 minute featurette from Rocksteady Studios that you can check out below.
The Season of Infamy DLC was to known to be coming for quite some time and season pass owners are probably really excited for it. I can also imagine that enough people who may have hated how Warner Bros., handled the PC release of Batman: Arkham Knight will still find themselves picking up the DLC for a couple of key reasons.
First up, there's a new DLC wheel implemented into the game so players can easily choose the DLC from the pull-up wheel. This makes it easy to select what kind of DLC you want to play that you have installed.
Next up, Rocksteady has added the Batmobile from the 2009 release of Batman: Arkham Asylum. Players can drive the Batmobile around in free-roam mode or when doing some non-story missions scattered throughout Gotham City.
Some of the new villains added to the game are returning foes from previous outings in the Batman: Arkham series, including the Mad Hatter, Killer Croc and a very interesting looking Mr. Freeze who last made his appearance in Batman: Arkham City.
When facing off against these new foes, Rocksteady has decided to open up Gotham City PD to house more criminals. This means that the cells and areas in GCPD have been extended for achievements and trophies as well as storage units for the newly implemented criminals.
The really big surprise of the Season of Infamy is the addition of the 2008 Batsuit featured in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight. According to game director Sefton Hill, he had to contact DC Comics and then contact Warner Bros. Entertainment and then go through the legal hoops of getting the a-okay from the rights holders from the Dark Knight crew and then they were able to implement the suit that Christian Bale wore in the movie.
According to Hill, it took the crew on Nolan's set up to 18 weeks to build the suit for Bale. Rocksteady managed to recreate the suit in record time as they acquired the rights and modeled it after the real-life unit to prep it for the December 22nd release of the Season of Infamy DLC.
The 2008 Batsuit was actually the most requested DLC item from fans so it's cool to see that Rocksteady was able to make it happen.
Despite all the troubles with the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight – a version so broken that Warner Bros., will be offering refunds on the game all the way up until the end of 2015 – I do have to admit that the 2009 Batmobile and the 2008 Batsuit both look really, really good. The newest DLC will be available for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
