Rocksteady’s post-launch support for Batman: Arkham Knight marches on today, with the threequel’s December content pack arriving bang on schedule.
While last month’s update focused on elements featured in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice film – namely the stylized Batmobile and Ben Affleck’s monotone Batsuit – December circles back to the Caped Crusader’s prestigious archives to cherry-pick characters such as The Mad Hatter, Killer Croc, Ra’s Al Ghul and Mr. Freeze.
Entitled Season of Infamy: Most Wanted, those new faces in question will be scattered across a pack of new missions for Arkham Knight, and Warner Bros. listed brief summaries of each to stoke excitement.
Wonderland: The Mad Hatter makes things personal as the supervillain lures Batman into a demented, hallucinatory battle of wits across Gotham City and within the pages of a twisted story book.
Beneath The Surface: The World’s Greatest Detective and Nightwing venture out to investigate Iron Heights, a flying airship prison that housed Killer Croc, after it crashed in the waters surrounding Gotham City.
Shadow War: Picking up after the events of Batman: Arkham City, Batman’s devout moral code is pushed to its limits as Ra’s Al Ghul’s health rebounds with the help of the League of Assassins.
In From The Cold: Mr. Freeze returns to Gotham City, where he is immediately entrapped in Arkham Knight’s Militia and Scarecrow’s plan to destroy Batman. Arkham Knight’s Militia has kidnapped Nora and will return her to Mr. Freeze in exchange for Batman’s capture.
There’s also an extra wave of Crime Fighter Challenges and the Batmobile from Christopher Nolan’s beloved Dark Knight trilogy, not to mention the Batmobile featured in the original Arkham Asylum.
Bundled in with the game’s $40 season pass, we understand that each of the new items will also be available to buy separately. Batman: Arkham Knight is available across PS4, Xbox One and, following a turbulent launch period, PC.
