After a handful of delays, it’s hard to believe that we are only a few weeks away from getting our hands on Batman: Arkham Knight. With the release date in sight, Rocksteady has been releasing a steady stream of new trailers for the title. Yesterday saw the release of a Red Hood-centered clip, while today brings us new footage of former Joker galpal, Harley Quinn.
Originally revealed back in March, the Harley Quinn based DLC takes place before the events of Batman: Arkham Knight. The prequel will have players infiltrating the Blüdhaven Police Department in order to free Harley’s partner, Poison Ivy. Comprised of four missions, Harley will need to utilize not only her bag of tricks, but also her wits, in order to bust her friend out of jail.
While there isn’t a ton of footage to go off of here, it’s nice to get a glimpse at how exactly Harley will play in the Arkham universe. Her bat helps make up for the fact that she lacks the strength of Team Batman, while her traps look to be on par with The Dark Knight’s assortment of gadgets.
Much like the Red Hood DLC, the Harley Quinn story content will only be available to those who choose to pre-order Batman: Arkham Knight. Rocksteady and Warner Bros. Interactive have remained mum on whether or not the DLC will be available at a later point. So, if you are at all interested in stepping into Ms. Quinn’s shoes, I highly suggest you act now.
Batman: Arkham Knight is set to launch on June 23 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
