New, 21 comments

Batman: Arkham Knight players will soon be able to roll around Gotham City in the Tumbler from 2008's The Dark Knight, publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced today.

For now, players can outfit the Dark Knight in Michael Keaton's suit from 1989's Batman and hop into the Batmobile that Keaton drove around in that film. Arkham Knight's 1989 Batmobile Movie Pack, which Warner Bros. announced in July and showed off last week, is now available along with the Bat-Family Skin Pack. That bundle includes three alternate Batman outfits, plus one each for Robin, Nightwing and Catwoman. Each downloadable content pack is available to Arkham Knight season pass holders at no additional charge, and costs $1.99 on its own.

Warner Bros. is planning four different DLC releases for September, starting with Crime Fighter Challenge Pack #1 on Sept. 1, which comes with six AR challenges for Batman, Nightwing, Robin and Catwoman. The company will also release another Batmobile next month: the Tumbler, which appeared in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight film trilogy.

  • Crime Fighter Challenge Pack #1 (Sept. 1): Receive 6 AR challenges for Batman, Nightwing, Robin and Catwoman. This expansive challenge pack allows focused training in Freeflow Combat and Invisible Predator stealth incursion.
