Play as Harley Quinn in Batman: Arkham Knight

Yeah, I know. Pre-order DLC kinda sucks. Okay, it sucks a lot. But some of it’s still pretty effing cool, like the add-on pack you get by pre-ordering Batman: Arkham Knight which stars Harley Quinn in an exclusive story mission and a bonus set of four challenge maps.

Here we have the first trailer showing gameplay of playable Harley Quinn. In addition to using her legs a lot, her main weapon of choice is a baseball bat. Plus she’s armed with gadgets like an exploding jack-in-the-box. She also appears to have some form of Detective Mode, which doesn’t exactly fit her character. But whatever.

It’s almost enticing enough to actually get me to pre-order, but not quite. It’d be silly of Warner Bros. to not eventually offer it as standalone DLC. Or more likely, Batman: Arkham Knight will be re-released in a “Game of the Year” edition with all the extras packed in come next year.
