We are pleased to say we are now able to provide a roundup of all remaining Batman: Arkham Knight Season Pass content, as well as all the new features and content for everyone post launch.
Below is a summary of this content broken down by the month it will be released:
ALREADY RELEASED ARKHAM EPISODES
ALREADY RELEASED AR CHALLENGES
ALREADY RELEASED SKINS
ALREADY RELEASED BATMOBILES AND RACETRACKS
ALREADY RELEASED NEW FEATURES
Coming in November we have the awesome Batsuit AND Batmobile from the highly anticipated movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This will be available to everyone, with Season Pass owners getting exclusive early access.
Additionally, in response to the requests from the community, we’ve worked with our friends at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Comics to bring the 2008 Movie Batman Skin to players in the December pack.
Finally, also in December, we’ll take you back to 2009 with the Original Arkham Batmobile, which will be available to drive on race tracks and conditional free-roam around Gotham City just like the other downloadable Batmobiles.
AR Challenges are one of the most popular features in the community, and we’ve been working to make our game better by implementing player feedback wherever possible. Thanks to fans telling us what they want, we’ve added Character Selection for AR Challenges. We’ve added support for this in combat challenges in October, and we are working on this for Invisible Predator maps ready for November. We’ve also heard you ask for round-based AR combat Challenges and these will be added into the mix from October onwards, along with the ability to select Hard difficulty to remove counter icons and get bigger score bonuses. We’ve heard you wanted more interior locations, so these have been added and will continue to be used in upcoming maps. Finally, some players found the blue walls around AR Challenges to be a little distracting, and if you’ve got the latest patch you’ll see we’ve significantly reduced this effect to increase the immersion.
There are two more Arkham Episodes coming in November. Catwoman’s Revenge puts players in control of Catwoman as she sets out to infiltrate the Riddler’s HQ as the final humiliation in their encounter. A Flip of a Coin, sees Robin dealing with the aftermath of Batman’s disappearance and hunting down Two-Face. The three post-launch Arkham Episodes are all roughly the same duration and are intended to be short, narrative vignettes that give a sense of what has happened to each of these characters after the events of Batman: Arkham Knight. We’re also converting these environments into new challenge maps to give more replay value to these packs.
In December, the Season of Infamy: Most Wanted Expansion will appear in your Gotham City, with each one approximately the similar length as the Most Wanted missions in the main game. Mad Hatter is playing a sinister mind-game with Batman, and GCPD’s finest are the pawns. Killer Croc has escaped from his maximum security cell and is wreaking havoc on a crashed airship. The League of Assassins has returned to Gotham City, but what is their motive and who is in charge? And Mister Freeze may be closer than ever to completing his life’s work… but at what cost?
Thanks for reading right to the end! It’s a relief to finally be able to take the lid off what we’ve got coming up on Batman: Arkham Knight for the rest of 2015, and it’s great to have this awesome community along for the ride. Thanks for letting us know what you think. This game wouldn’t be the same without you.

It takes a long time to build something like the 2016 Movie Batsuit, so we received the designs under NDA before they were publicly revealed. Everyone at the studio went fanboy CRAZY that day

@CODA I can finally start with the returns suit, and end with the dawn of justice suit . Coda seriously man give us a remastered edition. That will be a perfect end to the trilogy.

Well the IGN Rumour was indeed false. Because if it was true we would have had the remastered listed with this update. oh well. Such a shame guys and girls. It would have been amazing if we season pass owners got a tease to the remasters with a exlusive trailer oh something.

I am speechless right now! BvS Batmobile, Asylum Batmobile! Just awesome! Thanks for revealing to all of us everything else that is to come, a lot of people doubted a BvS themed dlc, but there it is! Rocksteady you guys are great.

Awesome! Looking forward to the Batman V Superman Skin pack. That is a suprise to me as I knew it was on the wish list for a lot of people but considering it was an up hill battle to get the Nolan skins I wasn't sure it would happen. Regardless the skin and batmobile look great. Many a photo mode to be had with them.
Overall this sounds like a good line up and also looking forward to season of infamy. I really wish that RS would have been this transparent intially. I'm glad they finally released all this info but the problem I have with Season passes and why I do not intend to buy into them anymore is simply by experience with this game. It is frustrating having spent money on something when you don't know what you are really getting. All this info would have helped a lot of people make informed buying decisions and prehaps aleaviated a lot of complaining if it had been provided up front.
I have the same concerns, if not more so with EA's Star Wars Battlefront. For $50 and being that EA isn't as known to listen to its fans. I have no intention of purchasing even the game now (at least not new), let alone the Season Pass. There has to be a better way to sell DLC without making the gamers feel like they are in the dark.
Thanks for releasing all the info!

And people said it looks exactly like the dark knight returns suit. Someone tell me how they are remotely the same?
Short ears and cowl shape pretty much the same as TDKR suit. Large Bat symbol resembles TDKR suit. Shorter/stubby gaunlet blades the same as TDKR suit. Large Bulky version of Batman calls back to TDKR suit. Really the only key differences is the lack of the outer "underwear" and the BvS suit has a different texture and more of a "veiny" look to it.
I do really like the BvS suit A LOT but it is very similar to TDKR suit and was clearly inspired by it.

I counted 40 locked squares in that image..
thats including this months yet to be released content.
So I'm assuming we have 40 more packs down the road of content and I'm expecting those locked boxes to each be checked off. Or else it just seems like more padding being added to content w/o one knowing what's behind those locks. Or made to deceive one as if it's more content being provided other than want to expect. A bit of déjà vu if u ask me..
One more question. Can u give a ruff estimate as to how much all this is going to cost us in HD space. As I foolishly paid for the season pass upfront and with all the patches and updates my systems memory is running low and now I'm finding myself not being able to have enough space for all the additional content yet to be released.
