Rocksteady released a trailer along with some release information on the new Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition, which will include all the DLC packs for the game, along with an entirely new piece of DLC.

Included in the game are the seven additional Batman skins for use during the challenge modes. The Catwoman DLC is a campaign that takes places alongside the Batman narrative and is a near requirement piece of DLC. Both the Robin and Nightwing packs add additional challenges to play through as either character. The most noteworthy addition though is Harley Quinn’s Revenge, a DLC focusing on events occurring after the main Arkham City campaign.

If you really love the idea of playing an excellent Batman game, then look into Batman: Arkham Asylum to see how that feels. If you loved that game, but missed out on Arkham City, then you should consider picking up the Game of the Year Edition to ensure you get the full experience. Arkham City was one of my favorite games last fall and the opportunity to get some more time as the Dark Knight is is thrilling.

The Game of the Year Edition is scheduled for release on May 29 in North America. For some strange reason it has a Sept. 7 release date in the UK, but at least it’s not Australia, which has no release date yet. Harley Quinn’s Revenge will be downloadable on May 29 on the PSN and May 30 on Xbox Live, with no PC release date yet, but it can be assumed that around that time the PC will get the DLC.

  1. DLC, as it is, is dumb. We get challenge maps , where you can beat up 5 dfiefrent enemies to rank on an arbitrary scoreboard. We get extra story , which is either Catwoman content (read: Boring) or story content they cut out and charged extra for (Javik in Mass Effect 3).Good DLC would be something like Mass Effect’s extra story DLC’s Lair of the Shadow Broker, etc. Or, for a shooter like Halo, extra multiplayer maps. But for a game like Arkham City, with no multiplayer, god no. It’s unneccessary and dumb, ESPECIALLY for upwards of $5 per DLC. I mean crap, you can buy whole games on Steam or for older consoles for $5, why would people spend it on a single room in Arkham Asylum/City? Yeesh.
