Play As Harley Quinn In Batman: Arkham Knight’s Prequel DLC


Rocksteady has today lifted the curtain on the Harley Quinn DLC for its upcoming and much-anticipated threequel, Batman: Arkham Knight.

Available to those who pre-order the game ahead of time, it’s understood the add-on will be a prequel in which players control the aforementioned psychopath, as they take on four Challenge maps as she whips up a storm in the Blüdhaven Police Department.

Here’s the official description courtesy of Amazon:

“For the first time in the Arkham series take on the role of Joker’s psychotic side-kick Harley Quinn and wreak havoc inside the Blüdhaven Police Department,” reads the listing. “With this exclusive Story Pack experience events in the lead-up to Arkham Knight as you infiltrate Blüdhaven to rescue your partner in crime: Poison Ivy. Delve deep into Harley’s demented nature and utilize her devastating baseball bat to smash, crash and bash your way to a friend very much in need.”

Going off of the studio’s approach to additional content in the past, it’s likely that this Harley Quinn DLC will be released further down the line as a standalone product, though it’s unclear how long the story pack will remain as a pre-order exclusive.

In other Batman: Arkham Knight news, Rocksteady announced last week that it has opted to postpone the sequel by a full three weeks, pushing it from its original release of June 2 back to June 23. Alongside this came the rumor that a remastered collection was in the works, which would bundle together Arkham Asylum and Arkham City for current-gen consoles. There is still no word on whether or not this is accurate, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as we learn more.
