Batman: Arkham Origins DLC Season Pass and Deathstroke Gameplay

Batman_ArkhamOrigins_SeasonPass

Today, a month before the game’s launch in late October, Warner Bros. has revealed its plans for a Batman: Arkham Origins DLC Season Pass.

$19.99 will get you five pieces of DLC, totaling $30 in value if purchased individually (according to WB). I suppose the good news is that there will be a mystery story campaign of some kind as well as a set of challenge maps that will feature Bruce Wayne as a playable character during his training, before he assumes the mantle of Batman. However, the other three packs will be nothing but a bunch of skins. 14 additional costumes is nothing to sneeze at, but for a season pass I would expect more substantial add-ons.

Like all DLC, this season pass will be completely optional. If you choose to buy in, this is what you’ll get:

· Gotham by Gaslight Batman Skin and Brightest Day Batman Skin
· New Millennium Skins Pack
· Infinite Earths Skins Pack
· Arkham Origins Initiation: Play as Bruce Wayne before he became Batman, and face his final test to prove himself worthy to his greatest teacher, Kirigi.
· An all-new story campaign

Of greater interest and value, being a pre-order freebie and all, is the Deathstroke Challenge Pack, which includes Deathstroke as a playable character in two exclusive challenge maps, with three costume options (Judas Contract, Injustice, and the standard Arkham Origins skin). Hit play on the video embedded below to watch Deathstroke whoop some ass in the “100-to-1” challenge mode.
