For the first time in the Arkham series, players will be able to play as Batgirl, and take on missions of her own. The add-on is set prior to the events of Batman Arkham Asylum, and already we’re wondering how it will end! It was confirmed a long time ago that Batgirl in Arkham Knight is indeed Barbara Gordon, and as we all know from the Arkham series already, Barbara plays the role of Oracle, Batman’s IT specialist. Could the DLC borrow the story arc of The Killing Joke? If you don’t know what that is, even better! We won’t spoil it for you!
The Batgirl: A Matter of Family add-on features an all-new location with multiple missions, side quests and secrets; a new hacking feature to progress through the world and solve puzzles; and Dual Play functionality with Robin for dynamic take-down manoeuvres. The content is being developed by Arkham Origins developer WB Games. Not Arkham Oranges, Eurogamer 😉
The release date for the DLC is July 14th, and is free for Season Pass holders. You can buy it separately from July 21st for £5.79 or its equivalent in your territory.
