While there’s reason to be angry with Warner Bros. about the large price increase, there’s no reason to lash out at Batman: Arkham Knight. Arkham Knight could still be a great game, and there are a few reasons why we shouldn’t give up on it.
Honestly, if this game was $100 I'd still buy it.
technically it kinda is
I'm extremely excited about the game, but I can't and won't support this kind of greed. 20-25 euro for the Season Pass IF that actually included ALL content, I could have lived with that... but 40 euro is just wayyy to expensive. I'll wait for a cheaper GOTY edition next year.
Of course you would buy it. You starred in batman forever.
Which is undeniably the best Batman film that is or ever was.
Well it's obviously still worth purchasing but the season pass is still ridiculous. I hate the fact even the expensive Batmobile edition doesn't include the Season pass.
Im buying the game still, but skipping the seasons pass, until I see more about it and have it at 50% off.
Yep I'll wait til it's $30 or a GOTY version.
the GOTY edition would be worth buying
If you liked AA & AC, you'll like this game. Looks exactly the same. Large, empty area with pockets of thugs. Get in the same gang fight brawl over and over while looking for hundreds of 'trophies' after a short campaign in which you blast through a dozen of batman's biggest foes easily. If you think the batmobile will add anything to this game, I honestly think you're going to be let down. It's merely a way to fast travel (oh and you can blow up some 'remote controlled' cars). But alas, it'll get multiple GOTY awards because it's Batman. And we're so desperate for superhero games that don't completely suck, we throw GOTY awards at the ones that aren't total trash like it's some amazing achievement.
"But alas, it'll get multiple GOTY awards because it's Batman." Origins didn't recieve any GOTY awards.. Your argument has no weight. Go troll somewhere else.
I'll wait for the complete GOTY edition.
Reason 1 you can always just not buy the season pass
It's totally worth it if this is our only shot at getting a Killing Joke video game!
Number 1 reason for me is that I got it for less than $30 on PC. Normally I have to wait for games to reach a reasonable price but I pre ordered this already. Great price.
Me too. I was going to wait for it to get cheap, or the GOTY edition, but preorder it last week for an incredible $21.84. Doesn't include the season pass though, but I don't care.
Same. No season pass. Not interested either.
I'll be buying it WITH the season pass. Couldn't care less the price. I want the whole package. However Rocksteady decides to pass it out. I never get season passes(accept for once because of a hot chick) but Rocksteadys previous entry's have been bar none for quality. They set the bar. They get my money on faith and they're previous track record. This isn't WB Montreal like Origins. I think the end product will justify the price. But that's just my opinion.
I'm not blindly spending two-thirds the cost of a full game for vaguely described content to be distributed over the span of half a year. I'll already have completed and moved on from Arkham Knight by the time the sixth month of DLC comes around. I'm picking up the game at launch with the Batman PS4, but that season pass can choke on its $40 price tag for all I care. When all the content is released, I'll decide if the $40 asking price is justified. Otherwise, I'll either ignore the DLC completely or pick and choose what I want out of the six additions. Unless you've got an extra $40 to spend, are a huge Batman fan or simply want the "whole package" from the beginning (even though the "whole package" is spread thin across the course of six months), buying the season pass with the little information presently available is foolish.
Im getting it on psn store its 10 dollars off so its technically 30 dollars for the dlc I cant complain about it.
the base game is still there, nothing is taken away. The big chunk of the season pass is a prequel story.
bought the game, pre order bonus and the season pass for less than 30€.
