The first details of Batman: Arkham Knight‘s first major DLC expansion Batgirl: A Matter of Family were revealed last week. Today we have been graced with a seriously kick ass trailer for that DLC that does a terrific job of showcasing what you can expect when Batgirl swings into action very soon.
There are several major things to note from the trailer. Firstly, Batgirl and Robin will be teaming up to save Commissioner Jim Gordon from the Joker and Harley Quinn. Batman won’t be around this time to steal the spotlight and yell into his bat-phone because the Joker promises to kill Jim if he shows up. Therefore its up to Barbara Gordon to save the day.
Barbara, as Batgirl, will have similar methods as Batman for taking out Joker’s goons. These involve acrobatty melee attacks, and Robin-assisted dual play mechanics, as well as the more stealthy predator approach. Batgirl mixes up the usual formula by appearing generally more nimble, as well as more handy with hacking as she uses her genius intellect to disable several thugs at once. Plus she has a wicked german suplex:
What do you think? Does this Arkham Knight DLC excite you? Are you ready to german suplex some goons? Let us know!
Batgirl: A Matter of Family is the first major DLC expansion for Batman: Arkham Knight. It’s set to release on July 14 for season pass holders, and July 21 for everyone else.
