Batgirl: A Matter of Family DLC Trailer Revealed

With less than a week to go until the release, Warner Bros. has dropped a pretty kickass trailer for the Batgirl DLC. In Batgirl: A Matter of Family, the titular heroin teams up with Robin to rescue her Father Commissioner Gordon from the Joker.

The two minute trailer features Barbara and Tim kicking all sorts of ass, with glimpses of Batgirl’s hacking skills in action. It even shows Harley Quinn in her iconic black and red duds from Batman: The Animated Series.

Season Pass owners can download the DLC on July 14, while everyone else will have to wait until July 21 to purchase it separately for $6.99.

Batman Arkham Knight Review, Be Vengeance , Be The Night, Be The Batman

Be the Dark Knight in the highly anticipated sequel to Batman Arkham City. Follow Batman through the night as he strikes and fights fear. Face off against several of his greatest enemies featuring Scarecrow, The Riddler, Two Face, Harley Quinn, The Penguin, and the Arkham Knight. Batman is pushed to the limit to save Gotham, the city he loves, one last time.

Deputy Editor Jermain Jackson shares his thoughts on the awesome Batmobile.

After years of fan request since the release of Arkham Asylum, Rocksteady has finally given us the keys to the Dark Knight’s ride. The wait was definitely worth it, mostly. This version of the Batmobile is more of a tank than a car and it honestly needs to be. Gotham city is now a war zone, overrun with escaped convicts and the Arkham Knight’s militia forces.

Racing through the streets of Gotham in pursuit mode is blast, as the Dark Knight tracks and chases down his enemies. Sideswiping enemy vehicles off the road, or using the non-lethal Immobilizer missiles (it takes out the engines) to stop them in their tracks, gives the player the sense that they are driving a truly powerful machine. Hearing the terrified cries of the city’s criminals as they attempt to flee is hilarious and makes you feel like you are the Batman. It also handles quite well. While it may look like a tank it handles like a smaller vehicle, able to drift around corners with relative ease. Activating its afterburner greatly increases the Batmobile’s speed, allowing it to catch some serious air off of ramps, in order to reach higher platforms. Batman can also eject from his ride at a higher velocity, allowing him to glide further through the air. It is a joy to pull off.

Built like Tank.

Pressing L1 (On PS4) will summon the Batmobile instantly in most situations, provided there’s road nearby. It is a visual treat to watch as Batman plummets from the sky to the streets and safely land inside the Batmobile. It is a stylish as it is convenient. Rocksteady also wisely integrated this kick ass vehicle into Batman’s combat, with the ability to perform Batmobile assisted takedowns. Using non-lethal rubber rounds of course. Batman doesn’t kill after all.

In order to take on the Arkham Knight’s powerful unmanned vehicles, players will have to go into Battle Mode. Holding down L2 transforms the Batmobile into a highly mobile tank, thanks to its Dodge Thrusters. Armed with a 60mm Heavy Cannon for ripping through drones’ armor and the Vulcan Gun for shooting down air missiles, Battle Mode turns the Batmobile into a formidable war machine and. Destroying enemy drones without taking damage builds up your vehicle’s energy meter, allowing you to unleash different special attacks. Finding yourself too outnumbered? Unleash a barrage of missiles to eradicate the opposition, or use the drone hack ability to take control and have them fight for you. You can also upgrade the Batmobile as you progress throughout the game, increasing its weapon damage, armor durability and more. Spend most of your time upgrading it as I did, you’ll find yourself driving a true force of nature by the end of the game.

Rocksteady went ahead and made the Batmobile vital in solving many of the Riddler’s fun and challenging puzzles. Sometimes you’ll need it to help Batman reach higher ground, other times to destroy the Riddler’s mindless robots. Whatever the situation, the Batmobile is properly equipped to handle.

Don’t mess with Batman’s ride!

There are moments when it feels as if the developer is forcing the player to rely on the Batmobile a bit too much throughout their time in Gotham. Instead of being able to fight certain enemies in hand to hand combat, you have to engage them in their vehicles. While vehicle combat is normally fun, the Boss battles are not as exciting. They also feel unnecessary and make no sense. You have some super villains who can hang with Batman physically and yet instead of challenging him to hand-to-hand, they resort to attacking him in an even bigger tank. It ultimately results in slightly disappointing showdowns.

Despite the minor annoyances, the Batmobile is a welcomed addition to the game. The melee combat features new changes in the form of new moves and gadgets, but the Batmobile is the biggest (No pun intended) change to the gameplay and delivers more variety. Kudos to Rocksteady for pulling it off, it’s the most Badass ride out there.

All Exclusive Pre-order DLC will be Included in Batman: Arkham Knight’s Season Pass

Worried about not being able to get your hands on all the exclusive pre-order DLC for Batman: Arkham Knight? Well if you plan on purchasing the game’s Season Pass, you’ll still be able to play as the Red Hood and utilize those booster packs. This news was posted on WB’s Forums, where Community Admin Yorick offered some clarity on the issue.

“Throughout the 6 months of additional Batman: Arkham Knight content, Premium and Season Pass owners will receive all in-game content that is offered through various retail pre-order incentives. This includes the Harley Quinn and Red Hood Story Packs, as well as any Batmobile or Booster Pack that was available as early bonuses for pre-order of the game.  For those who did not receive the content with their game, these items will become available when their respective exclusivity windows expire in August/September,” Yorick explained.

For $40 Season Pass will deliver new content over a 6 month time period after the game’s release. Fans can look forward to more story content — including the chance to play as Batgirl, challenge maps and more for $40.

Batman: Arkham Knight will launch next Tuesday for PS4 and Xbox One.

Batman: Arkham Knight’s Batmobile Edition Has Been Cancelled

The Batmobile Edition for Rocksteady’s Batman: Aarkham Knight has been scrapped, according to user on NeoGaf. Rtbeoh posted a photo of the email they received from UK retailer GAME, which states that due to “unforeseen circumstances that greatly comprised the quality of the Batmobile”, Warner Bros decided to cancel the entire thing.

What’s odd about this whole scenario is how close we are to the release of the game. Hopefully whatever catastrophe that befell the Batmobile statues was rather recent, and WB weren’t sitting on this information for a while. Fans who purchased the Batmobile Edition will have no choice but to purchase the standard edition (Or Red Hood) of the game, since the Limited Edition has been sold out for months.

Batman: Arkham Knight releases on June 23, for PS4, PC and Xbox One.

The Latest Batman: Arkham Knight Trailer features More Red Hood Gameplay

Earlier this month, fans were given a glimpse of the Red Hood in action with the GameStop pre-order trailer. Unlike the previous trailer, which was mixture of live-action and gameplay, this one features 100% in-game footage.

The Red Hooded vigilante is equipped with his own detective mode, dual handguns and boasts deadly fighting skills. Based on the trailer it seems he is targeting Black Mask, one of Gotham’s most dangerous crime bosses. While Batman has a strict no killing rule, the Red Hood does not, which spells ill for the Black Mask’s henchmen and maybe even the crime boss himself.

 

The Red Hood Story Pack is exclusive to GameStop. Batman: Arkham Knight launches on June 23rd for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
