Batman: Arkham Knight Season Pass includes 6-months worth of content

Batman: Arkham Knight's season pass will offer six months worth of content that includes new story missions, villains, and additional content.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced details surrounding both the Season Pass and Premium Edition for Batman: Arkham Knight.

The Season Pass is expected to deliver regular new content for six months post launch, which will include new story missions, new villains invading Gotham City, skins for the Batmobile and characters, challenge maps, and race tracks. For those who plan on purchasing both the game and its Season Pass, you’ll be able to do just that by buying the Batman: Arkham Knight Premium Edition, although we recommend you consider holding off your money until we know exactly what will be offered within the Season Pass.

Batman: Arkham Knight’s Season Pass retails for $39.99, while the Premium Edition is priced at $99.99.

Today’s news comes hot on the heels of a new trailer released yesterday that highlights Arkham Knight’s new Dual Play feature, which allows Batman to perform co-op attacks with his allies.

We noticed both the Batmobile and Limited Edition of Arkham Knight doesn't mention anything about including its Season Pass. We reached out to WBIE to see whether or not these editions will or won't include it.

      If they actually delivered on that it might be worth it. But no one has ever delivered on that promise, including Warner with Arkham Origins.

        Arkham Origins was done by another studio. With Rocksteady I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt because of their track record so far and they value their fans unlike some companies.

          It's the publisher I don't trust, not the studio involved. The studio isn't the one pushing for season passes and whatnot.

      Sign of the times :(

      DLC and seasons passes are part of the business model now not much you can do about it other than wait for it to go on sale.

        Truth be told, if this stuff keeps the games at $59.99, I'm okay with it. If they put out decent content for the season pass, I'll buy it. But I won't buy it sight-unseen.

          Totally this, if could some how know what the content is like mini KS campaign write ups you know what I mean some sort of preview that be awesome.

          Sort of what Witcher 3 has done they tell you what the content will be then I be down for sure like you said.

          Not knowing is what sucks and is a gamble.

          Other way around, if the price climbs any higher I just won't be buying.

          As it is now I rarely buy games when they're new. My steam sale and PSN backlogs are so extensive, I could never buy a game again and probably never beat them all.

        That's easy for me. My Steam backlog is about two years old at this point, and by the time I'm ready to play this it'll probably be $5 in a Steam Summer sale or something.

      I ended up getting the Origins season pass for $5 months after the game came out. The Cold, Cold Heart DLC was totally worth it. That one didn't come out for a while after the game was released so there was really no reason to buy the season pass on day 1.

        That DLC was good, but I would have felt fine just buying it on its own.

          Yeah the rest was completely unnecessary, but $5 for all of it didn't seem like a waste.

      i mean...we had expansion packs back in the late 90's and early 2000's.

        Expansion packs are considered differently to trickles of DLC.

      Nice, I like how the premium edition costs a penny more than buying the game and the season pass separately.

      So whats included in the season pass? colors? suits? rim jobs? I just need a detailed explanation of why I need to dish out more cash that's all and if the argument holds water Ill do it. If the argument is "well we need more money" Well then go fuck yourself.
