Earlier today, Warner Bros. announced the season pass and premium edition for Batman: Arkham Knight. Season passes and different editions such as these are not something new or different, but the examples displayed for Batman: Arkham Knight are going to hurt a few wallets.
First and foremost there’s the season pass. It promises additional challenge maps, character skins, extra super-villains running amok in Gotham, Batmobile skins, race tracks, and more story missions over the course of six months. That does sound like a hefty amount of content for a single season pass. That could explain why the season pass is going to cost $39.99/£32.99.
If you’d prefer to pick up Batman: Arkham Knight and the season pass in one bundle, you’ll be paying $99 for the pleasure on consoles while PC owners can expect to fork over $79 for the same privilege.
That does look like a very packed season pass yes. New races alone sound like fun, especially since the Batmobile’s debut in Batman: Arkham Knight brings them into the game’s universe. As does the addition of more villains for Batman to battle with on the streets.
Batman: Arkham Knight will hit PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 June 23 and will also premiere the new dual play mechanic that came to light yesterday.
