Batman: Arkham Knight gets playable Red Hood pre-order bonus

The vigilante Red Hood gets his own story missions as a GameStop exclusive.

Update: GameStop has now officially sent out the announcement with the promo image, confirming the leak.

A promotional image for Batman: Arkham Knight seems to have outed another pre-order bonus. 

Batman News (via IGN) reported on the image, which promises two packs for pre-ordering. The first, which lets you play as Harley Quinn, we've known about since March. The second, which is listed as a GameStop exclusive, is the "Red Hood Story Pack." 

Arkham Knight is also getting exclusive Scarecrow Nightmare missions on PlayStation 4. It was delayed until 2015, and no formal date has been given yet, but a Microsoft store listing cited February 24. We can probably expect more news from Arkham Knight, possibly including this story pack, as we head towards San Diego Comic-Con.

      Those missions never amounted to much. In Arkham City the preorder missions were more an obnoxious excision than quality plot. GameStop bonuses can fuck right off.

        usually i agree, but it's Batman so i need it all on day one. i don't care if i'm "part of the problem"... i need it. I liked the Catwoman stuff in City... the missions weren't great or anything, but i liked the way she played.

      Whelp I'll be waiting for the GOTY that will include all of this. Also I think this just confirms that Jason will be the Arkham Knight IMHO... Of course it could be Hush...

        GOTY for sure. Wanting this game, but the pre-order exclusive crap just drives me nuts. Worse when it's platform exclusive. Like I'm going to buy a different platform just for an exclusive of a non exclusive game.

          platform exclusives and retailer exclusives fucking blow. i don't mind pre-order bonuses most of the time because i know for a fact i'm buying this game day one... but i want to get the digital PC version from Amazon or Steam and i don't want this shit to influence my decision. but since i'm a fucking sucker for Batman i'm going to be getting it from Gamestop now. fuck.

      Fuck that shit. I am still pissed that the Knight Fall costume was tied to PS3 pre-order.

      I don't know whether to be happy or sad that Rocksteady ended up working on yet another (albeit Next-gen) Batman Game.

      Don't get me wrong, Batman: AA and AC are outstanding but the rumours about them working on a Turtles game (quickly proven false) had my hopes up for a while. I'd love to see what these folks can come up with outside the 'constraints' of Batman.

        Well this is their last one for pretty much exactly that reason, so you might get your wish soon.
