Batman: Arkham City
Free Skin Swoops into Batman: Arkham City Tomorrow

View author's profile

There's a new skin coming to Batman: Arkham City tomorrow for free.

The Batman Inc Batsuit skin is a thank you to the fans, according to game's director. Speaking on the Arkham City website, Sefton Hill said, "We have had an amazing release of Batman: Arkham City and we wanted to thank you all for your incredible support before, during and after the game's release."

In addition to this, Rocksteady has also revealed a cheat code that allows you to play using an alternate skin without completing the story mode. All you have to do is reach the menu screen after you have selected your save slot, then enter: Left, Left, Down, Down, Left, Left, Right, Up, Up, Down.

When you do this you will hear a little audio cue to tell you that you've inputted correctly. From there you should get the option to select your favourite skin.

I like the code unlock. Have't completed it yet (friend has a loan of it) but looks like I'll finally be able to use the Batman Beyond skin.

Free DLC!? I'm scared.... maybe the world will end in 2012. We will only know for sure if there is only 1 version of Street Fighter X Tekken and not 7 Ultimate editions.

Downloaded. Don't have the game yet, but I know I am getting it Christmas, so this will be cool.

Also, the Map Pack is up as well as an Arkham Pack or something, which has Nightwing, Robin and all the Costumes for $15/1200msp. Considering it..

I already have the Iceberg Lounge and Joker's Carnival challenge maps from pre-ordering the Collector's Edition so I wish the Batcave map was available on its own.

I don't understand the Challenge Map Pack. The description says you can download it for free, yet the price is 240 Microsoft points.

@#6 the inserted picture is the costume you unlock, no need for a link.

Nice costume, not going to complain considering it's free.

I'm still waiting for the George Clooney costume DLC.

I like that skin. Also, does anybody else miss old school cheat codes like this? I still remember the Sonic cheat code on the old Mega Drive system. Ahh those were the days.

Freebies are always welcome, i've noticed a few other games offering freedbies recently, Activision take note. Does anyone know if the change costume cheat will disable achievements?

Too bad I was done with Batman like a month ago. How about bundling in some Catwoman or Robin as well. Had the Batman skins been available on day 1 I would have purchased the entire lot. However, these are marketing strategies that we are working with. Incentives for more people to but the game during the holidays.

If only they had some solid DLC for this game as well. Not to seem ungrateful as I will download free skin, but I doubt I will use it for more than few hours and I will defo not pay for new characters to use in same old challenge rooms. If only they made them playable in actual game, evem if it was only after you beat the game....

Anyone else love how the skins look absolutely terrible? Not just for Batman but for Catwoman, Nightwing, and Robin. The animated ones are probably the worst but idk Nightwing looks far too emo for my taste.
