Batman: Arkham Origins Initiation DLC Hits Tomorrow

A splendid bit of info of tomorrow's DLC, along with a new trailer, too!

------

I'll start off by saying that this DLC looks incredibly interesting. And I'm a bit confused as to why the achievements are for the Original Challenge Maps instead of the DLC Challenge Maps.

Also looks like Lady Shiva is returning!

Initiation is set high up in the North Korean Paektu-San Mountains, and will see young Mr. Wayne fighting in a bamboo forest and mountain top monastery against new enemies. The add-on will culminate in a final test against Bruce's greatest and most uncompromising master, Kirigi.

You'll be able to prove yourself and your fighting prowess in the Initiation add-on for Batman: Arkham Origins when it releases on December 3rd on the Xbox Games Store (that's tomorrow) for 5.49/$8.99.

Check out the trailer below.

Right?! I feel as though this will be awesome while a lot of people right it off as something lame.

$8 is a little pricy IMO.

I'll pick up the season pass with my Christmas money!

It is, but hey, it's a store-focused Challenge Mode by the looks of it, plus the incentive of redoing the Original Challenge Maps with Wayne.

I was hoping for it to be $6, thus making the Story DLC ~$15.

Either way, I'm pumped to try this out and will try to make an achievement guide for this

The same way Catwoman did in AC?

I think playing as Bruce will be a different but very similar character, similar moves but different gadgets and different movement. Possibly somewhere between playing as Batman and Deathstroke.

Maybe Bruce will kiss the thugs to stun them like Catwoman did in Arkham City

She had a whip. And it was far-fetched how long it reached.

Still don't see what Bruce would have in his arsenal to help him!

This looks so cool. I remember getting annoyed with the constant challenge maps DLCs on Arkham City, but the fact they've put some extra effort into these ones is awesome. New maps, a story linking them, possibly some new gadgets (or more basic versions of the ones already in the game)? Still confused as to the achievements though, why not reward us for playing the new maps? Seems weird. And they could have Bruce Wayne traversing round Gotham in a Deathstroke style, but given the size of the map I know I would be making full use of the fast travel system anyway!

To sum up, I think this sounds awesome. In fact screw it, I'm booking a half day from work to play it!

Hah! I'm jealous, I won't be home for another 8 hours to play these myself.

According to Batman Arkham's Official Facebook Page, the DLC is FINALLY available to download Hopefully this stands valid.

I assume we will get a prompt to download it after pressing Start, like the other DLC packs, when you have the Season Pass?

Their Facebook page took down the update I saw earlier, but it said something like, "Season Pass holders will have immediate access to the DLC if they are connected to the internet," which makes me believe it's automatically downloaded?

Hmm, disappointing. Since it's unrated in the Marketplace, safe to assume it's not working there either. Also, what's with all that other stuff in there? Attache Case, Billfold, Vault, etc. Weird. Anyway, annoying that there has been no word on why there has been a delay. Looks like I'll be watching The Walking Dead earlier than expected tonight then!

This has happened with Max Payne 3 in the past.

The content would show up in the Marketplace, but not in the In-Game Store for Season Pass holders.

Just keep waiting it out. During the Max Payne 3 days, the content finally came out at night :/

Are there new maps though? How loose is the story driven aspect of it?

There isn't any story driven aspect...
There is like 5-6 new challenge maps, that's it.. unless i've missed something.
I was hoping for an introduction and some sort of narrative, but there isn't any.

Weird, they said there was a story arc behind it. What the hell?!
