Warner Bros. has revealed a few more titbits of info regarding Batman: Arkham Origins’ upcoming Initiation DLC, while teasing future, story-based content.
Let’s start with Initiation. Revealed recently thanks to the DLC’s achievement list, Arkham Origins’ first DLC pack is challenge-based and sees you play as Bruce Wayne.
So that we already knew. What we didn’t know is that it’s a "new kind of challenge map pack that's got a little bit of a narrative to it.”
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 Origins’ 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.”
What key relationship though? God knows Batman has plenty of them. Feel free to speculate below. Arkham Origins’ second DLC is out in early 2014.
