When the Arkham Knight Season Pass was announced earlier this week I couldn’t help but think of a famous quote from Star Wars; “I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.”
This was the reaction to a announcement that had no information on what exactly you would be getting for your $40 that Rocksteady wanted you to fork over in advance. I myself even raised an eyebrow as normally I am supportive of bundling content into Season Pass type value packs. This however was quite an interesting marketing move, especially for a developer who had a flawless track record with the fans when it came to the Arkham series of games.
Today we get a small snippet of what exactly that content will contain and while it isn’t substantial enough to convince everyone , its enough for this Fanboy.
Earlier this week, we announced the Season Pass for Batman: Arkham Knight. While the story of Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Trilogy will come to a close on June 23rd, we are excited to continue telling stories and delivering more content to explore and play through in the 6 months following the game’s release. We’ll be building more narrative, more missions, more challenges and more characters and vehicles that we want players to experience, even though they didn’t fit into the storyline of Batman: Arkham Knight.
We’ve heard from our community that you want more information on what we’ll be delivering in the Season Pass. While we aren’t ready to unveil every aspect of the content we’ll be developing, we would like to share more detail now to give you a better sense of the scope of the Season Pass.
