WB. Montreal clues us in on Batman: Arkham Origins' Season Pass, and a sneak peak at the Deathstroke Challenge Pack pre-order bonus maps
Of course Arkham Origins has a Season Pass, that's no mystery. After all, what game doesn't these days? Today, developer WB. Montreal let tslip what the pass will provide to via a press release.
The pass will be available at launch for $19.99, and grants access to five of the game's upcoming downloadable content packs, one of which includes two exclusive skins. Players who purchase or pre-order the pass will gain access to the following content:
- 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
The pass will be available for all consoles the game is set to release on - PlayStation 3, PC, Xbox 360, and the Wii U.
Also, there's a new video out showing the pre-order bonus and challenge maps for the master assassin Deathstroke. In the video, you'll see the cycloptic killer let loose on a large gathering of thugs in the "100-to-1" gameplay mode. There's also a collection of skins for the killer, including his costume from the DC fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us.
See the whole video for yourself below.
The game stars a younger, not as experienced Batman we've seen in past Arkham games, and has the criminal Black Mask offering a boatload of cash to whoever can kill the caped crusader. Confirmed classic characters include Penguin, Deadshot, Deathstroke, Scarecrow, Bane, Copperhead, Mad Hatter, Killer Croc, Firefly, the Joker, Anarky, and others.
Batman is armed with more than just his grapnel gun and batarangs. He's actually carrying a few new toys thrown in for good measure, all to help him pummel thugs throughout a Gotham city that's almost double the size of the one seen in Arkham City.
A Vita prequel, Batman: Arkham Origins - Blackgate, is also in development by Armature Studio, set to release the same day. The game will release on all platforms worldwide on Oct. 25, 2013.
