Batman: Arkham City has finally had its game of the year edition announced! When we wrote this article last year detailing the different pre-order costumes up for grabs, I decided that I couldn’t decide on which pre-order costume I wanted to go for. At the time news of various dlc packages was rumbling around the internet and so I decided I would wait and hope that Arkham City would receive the same treatment as Arkham Asylum with an eventual game of the year edition encompassing all released dlc. On 7th September 2012 the wait will be over as Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition will see its European release, trailer below:
However fans who already own an original boxed edition of Batman: Arkham City can experience the new gameplay by downloading the Harley Quinn’s Revenge Pack, which will be available in all international markets beginning May 30 in the PlayStation Network and in the Xbox LIVE Marketplace. Described as “the final chapter in Batman: Arkham City,” Harley Quinn’s Revenge Pack will add more than two hours of fresh gameplay.
“The Harley Quinn’s Revenge mission sends players back into Arkham City to face their final challenge as they interchange between playing as both Batman and Robin. Gamers must utilise each of the characters’ unique combat and investigative skills to uncover Harley’s vengeful plan and shut the gates on the urban mega-prison forever. In addition to experiencing a new storyline, fans can explore new environments and face-off against Harley’s all new gang of thugs.”
Back to the game of the year edition, the DLC included on disc includes the Catwoman Pack, Nightwing Bundle Pack, Robin Bundle Pack, Challenge Map Pack and Arkham City Skins Pack. All told, Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition packages new gameplay content, seven maps, three playable characters, and 12 skins beyond the original retail release:
Maps: Wayne Manor, Main Hall, Freight Train, Black Mask, The Joker’s Carnival, Iceberg Long, and Batcave.
Playable Characters: Catwoman, Robin and Nightwing.
Skins: 1970s Batsuit, Year One Batman, The Dark Knight Returns, Earth One Batman, Batman Beyond Batman, Animated Batman, Sinestro Corps Batman, Long Hallowe’en Catwoman, Animated Catwoman, Animated Robin, Red Robin and Animated Nightwing.
