Batman: Arkham Origins Initiation Has Story Elements, Full Story-Based DLC Next Year

Looks like WB has revealed some nice little information on the upcoming pieces of DLC for Batman Arkham Origins!

Letís start with Initiation. Revealed recently thanks to the DLCís achievement list, Arkham Originsí first DLC pack is challenge-based and sees you play as Bruce Wayne.

So that we already knew. What we didnít know is that itís a "new kind of challenge map pack that's got a little bit of a narrative to it.Ē

Speaking to IGN, VP of WB Games Ames Kirshen said that the DLC is set in Asia and follows a young Bruce Wayne as he trains to become an accomplished fighter under the tutelage of super ninja Kirigi.

Beyond that, Warner Bros. has also said that Arkham Originsí second add-on will be a proper story-based chunk of DLC, though they stopped short of providing any concrete information.

"It is in line with our angle of the origins - not necessarily of characters, but of key relationships," senior producer Ben Mattes told Eurogamer. "It is a DLC that will focus on one of the most key relationships in Batman canon.Ē

What key relationship though? God knows Batman has plenty of them. Feel free to speculate below. Arkham Originsí second DLC is out in early 2014.

I like it too. It makes me think they've put effort on creating this DLC. Plus I liked playing Bruce in Arkham City, so this is actually nice.

I can guarantee it won't be. The article states that it focuses on a key relationship between two important characters.

Either the following three scenarios are strongest to assume:

Batman + Dick Greyson
Harley Quinn + Joker
Batman + Joker

Very well could be, but that sounds like a rather boring DLC to be honest.

That would be pretty ideal. I'm confident it'll be Batman and Dick Greyson since his character model is already present in the MP Mode.

I hope at least one of the DLCs does include the Scarecrow in some way.

Not exactly sure, but it'll most likely be $10 because the Season Pass was advertised as a $30 value for $20, and since both Skin Packs were $5 and the Story DLC might end up being $10 like Harley Quinn's Revenge, then maybe the Initiation DLC will be $10 too. Unless it's only $5 and the Story DLC is $15.

Either way, I hope the article I briefly caught was true, cause Batman Arkham's Facebook page also posted this:

Are you ready to take the reins as Bruce Wayne NEXT WEEK?

I think the story will probably have Dick Greyson, if they're talking about key relationships, but I was hoping it's exploring what was teased in the post-credit scene too.

Slade and Batman are pretty important - key relationship could be on them too maybe.

It's most likely none of those. For me, it seems like the DLC will be before Bat:AO, which makes all of those scenarios a no go.

And I doubt it's Alfred + Bruce, since it's in Asia where Brucey is training.
Could be Bat + Ra's al ghul, Bat + Talia, Bat + Bane, Bat + Deathstroke, etc.

So we should just wait and see.

Clearly you're confused...the Initiation DLC takes place in Asia...not the Story DLC...

Could be Batman and Gordon too. That's a huge relationship.
