Batman: Arkham Knight Harley Quinn DLC Renamed “Story Pack,” Gets New Promotional Picture

Rocksteady announced a pre-order bonus DLC featuring Harley Quinn back in march, but something has changed. The new ads for the DLC appeared on GameStop are slightly different. Not only feature a different image of Harley, but the DLC itself has been renamed “Harley Quinn Story Pack.” (Batman: Arkham Knight, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

The game hasn't even been finished and already has DLC? This is what's wrong with the industry.

They did the same thing with Arkham City...Catwoman DLC was free to people who picked it up day 1.

Gives people an incentive to pick up the game early and rewards the Day One adopters.

How is that a bad thing? Because they snake the cheap douches who buy the used copies of the game or wait till it's in the bargain bin to pick it up?

Face it Rocksteady takes extra time to develop the game and we all knew the Story DLC would come with the game.

OT: I'm not the biggest Harley fan but after the events of Harley Quinns Revenge...Maybe she'll be able to run her gang like Joker.

That's just that they (and every other developers) are just greedy bastards.

I remembered they hyped Catwoman at E3, then a month before release, BOOM! online pass.

An online pass for a single player game....

That was just dirty.

How is it greedy to offer a slight incentive for people to buy the game new so they can actually make money on their hard work. Its something extra for preordering, like almost everyone does now. It really shouldn't bother anyone, just buy the game.

It's not incentive, it's taking part of the game out and holding it in order for you to either have to pay for it (if you buy used) or buy new. There is nothing good about that.

Also they hyped Catwoman up way too much because it wasn't even important to the story.

Developers should make sure the game is 100% finished and out the door before thinking about DLC. Look at Bioshock Infinite and The Last of Us, both story add ons were started AFTER the game was released.

What did they do to her face? If they're trying to sell the DLC you'd think they'd have her looking her best. I don't get the simple mistakes companies are making lately, can nobody see the obvious and speak up?

Exactly i love harley quinn in these games but the new face is seriously putting me off. I really cant stand it, really cant the outifit and everything is good but that face is terrible. I really hope they change it before it out.

Whats wrong with selling addons? nothing wrong with that. What , the main game not epic enough for you that you must have the dlc for free?
wsoutlaw87  +   60d ago
Ya what do people expect when they want these great single player games but then just rent or buy used.

Harley Quin looks like a guy now.

I don't pre order games. Even though I trust rocksteady to deliver, I won't be sorry. However it's still a buy the Friday after it's released and beat it by Sunday hopefully.

How is it a downgrade if the PC version actually looks like that? It's not Watch Dogs where the best version available still doesn't look as good as they originally showed.

Granted, I don't believe the console version will look quite that good, but the "downgrade" term is getting thrown around where it shouldn't be sometimes.
SnotyTheRocket  +   60d ago
It's funny because Watch Dogs did everything but flop. I bet you haven't even played it. Probably just some troll lurking around the Internet to hate on Watch Dogs. Everything they showed in commercials, TV spots and trailers right before release is what was shipped. Stop dwelling on a demo from over two years ago.
Kurylo3d  +   60d ago
in all fairness.... watchdogs was garbage. I own it.. Everyone hailed it as like the 2nd coming. I knew it was going to be just another grand theft auto. Didnt beleive the hype. It was a very very boring repetitive game. I got it with my gtx 780 for free... so thank goodness i didnt spend a penny on that dumb game.

Though batman arkham games.. all were good and this one looks epic. I thought arkham city was epic but wow... this one is rediculously awesome. So I have no idea how u can say flop. Cant wait to own it on PC.
the_hitman3000  +   60d ago
No matter downgrade or not it won't flop.

It's the end of the Arkham as a series plus this game couldn't have been done on past gen. No matter what I'm pretty sure this will be a huge improvement on the series and everyone will be happy.
bjshepp  +   60d ago
Yeah, because over 5 million copies sold within the first two months is a "flop".

N4G logic.
wsoutlaw87  +   60d ago
Watchdogs wasnt as expected because of the gameplay not a little graphic downgrade.
SINISTERGENESIS  +   60d ago
I can't wait for the game to release as I love this series but damn, damn, damn!!! I want the Joker back!!! IMO, you can't have Batman and no Joker, it feels unnatural :(
As far as the DLC goes well, it sucks but this is one of the games that I'm cool with buying a season pass for as this series has been great with every outing IMO. But yes DLC sucks but hey what can ya do;)
Nunchez  +   60d ago
This is so annoying. Announcing a DLC way before the actual game is released. We don't even have a confirmed release date yet!
