Nice! But cant wait to play it on PC.
Looks great, but Season Pass... :/
Yup. Buts it Batgirl...maybe an exception? :D - Its hard, I dislike the season pass concept entirely.
I played most of the game at my friend's house its solid but I'll wait for GOTY.
You mean the GOTY edition that isn't a guarantee...Origins never got a GOTY edition
Err season pass. no thanks.
You can get stand alone
I'm not sure why you have a disagree when you are only stating a fact. the non season pass Players can buy separately July 21st
once again DLC takes priority over fixing the game...
Exactly, and since June 27 not even one update on the PC progress!!!
Actually the pc version has received a patch. (not fixed by any means, but slightly improved so far) Everyone here needs to realize that the team making the DLC isn't the same team fixing the pc version. Not to mention there's clauses in the DLC season pass agreements that kinda force their hand into not stopping work on dlc content. This would result in further delays and punish the console owners of the game. I own the game and season pass on PC. I know the pc version will be fixed but its not an overnight fix. The steam pages says estimated release as fall 2015 for a reason. Stop complaining about them working on DLC because to me its really starting to seem like people just like to look for something to complain about. Yea, the pc version was borked on launch, they should have delayed it. But think about it, with a delay we'd be in a very similar situation... still not playing it on pc.
This makes sense - because a lot of games have payed for the season pass. If you let them wait, they'll get angry too. Also I believe the DLC is a separate task-line, means the fixing of the PC issues will be done in another section. We should not mix up things here.
How can PC owners enjoy the patch if they can't play the game as intended... and that patch was very small... the extensive one is yet to appear.
Awww in your big rush to be cool and make a comment you totally decided to ignore the FACT that this DLC was done by WB Montreal so that Rocksteady could work on the PC version....But hell who needs facts before crying
Iron Galaxy, the company that worked on the PC port, only did “additional engineering and PC support.” Warner Bros, Rocksteady and Iron Galaxy worked together on the PC version. It's not like Warner Bros are not working on fixing the PC port. They were also responsible for the PC port in the first place.
To people saying it's not the same team, WB (as publisher) should be devoting all resources to fixing the horrid PC version. This includes Montreal, Rocksteady and Iron Galaxy. DLC should have ceased until the PC version is fixed. Edit: They need to offer compensation for those that couldn't refund as well.
@jeromeface, it is exactly the same team making the DLC that's working on fixing PC http://www.mweb.co.za/games...
So we're paying like $30 season pass just for this this one tiny bit of story, am I reading this right?
There will be other things released through the season pass. Costumes, Batmobile races and some other things.
So basically things that should've been in the game to begin with? Seems legit...
@wit don't buy it. vote with your wallet. I'm not buying the dlc because unless it is a reasonable size/time addition to the story I don't give a damn. Costumes and skins are pointless to me and I never use them. Maybe if more people weren't blind consumers gobbling up every thing they can get their hands on publishers wouldn't see the dollar signs. not trying to tell anyone on how to spend their hard earned cash, but I am of the opinion that map packs, skins, and season passes are a waste, and I am a huge fan of the Arkham series (I even liked the vita game)
No you are wrong - this is what is coming from the season pass, please inform yourself right next time before flame around: Batgirl: A Matter of Family An all new prequel story expansion in an entirely new location where you play as Batgirl for the very first time in the Arkham series – check out the first render of Batgirl. The Season of Infamy Play as Batman in all new story missions featuring legendary super-villains invading Gotham City, with new story arcs, missions and gameplay features. Gotham City Stories Play as Batman’s key allies in narrative missions extending their storylines, from both before and after the events in Batman: Arkham Knight. Legendary Batmobiles with Themed Tracks Drive the most iconic Batmobiles from Batman’s 75-year history, on custom-built race tracks, each themed to that Batmobile’s specific era. Every Batmobile will be drivable across every race track. Crimefighter Challenge Maps Engage in a series of new challenge maps utilizing the unique play styles of Batman and his allies. Character Skins A variety of skins from across the eras for Batman, Robin, Nightwing and Catwoman. --------- So there are a lot of things to come.
