Batman: Arkham Asylum
Free Batman: Arkham Asylum DLC Next Week
Written Tuesday, September 08, 2009 By Dan Webb
View author's profile

On the menu screen of the recently released Batman: Arkham Asylum, a scrolling ticker has indicated that there will be free downloadable content for the title in 9 days time.

The ticker simply states, "free downloadable content coming in 9 days."

Not much else to report other than that just yet. UK PR for Eidos have refused to comment (go figure). All we know is, it's coming in 9 days - which we put around the 17th.

Challenge maps anyone? Stands a good chance.

In other Arkham Asylum news, check out our review tomorrow.

Would be nice if it added new achievements, but for free that seems unlikely.

I believe it is for Xbox 360 only.

I'm thinking it's The Joker, but who knows, could be something else.

I saw an interview with someone from Eidos (cant remember who unfortunatly), and he said that a free challeneg map to both 360 and PS3 the 17th, a free joker challenege map to PS3 on the 24th AND that there will be a sequal. I also noticed that when asked if robin would be in the next one, he smiled and said "no comment".

One final thing, he said joker will NEVER com to the 360. Sorry guys.

Sounds like the Joker DLC.
Since it seems this message only seems to happen on the 360 version.

But it seems a very short exclusive deal for Sony.

I doubt it. The PS3 version has the same message about free DLC, and they can't give the PS3 something it already has.

@Everyone list games with free DLC and achievements:

Microsoft did allow free DLC to have achievements but have since stopped. There is now a rule that says no free DLC can have achievements. So please stop listing them and trying to prove everyone wrong.

#3, MS allows non paid achievements. They need to be sponsored by someone so they get paid though. Army of Two has the pontiac free dlc that added 150 puntos. Maybe the Batman dlc is sponsored by...DC comics? Highly doubtful though...

As much as I'd like to see the Joker challenge maps, I highly doubt 360s will see it for a while and almost certainly not for free - the shit-storm Sony would summon over losing their exclusive content just wouldn't be worth Microsoft's trouble.

I'd kind of like to see a New Game+ or some more challenge maps. Costumes would be good, if there was some sort of benefit to them (unlike the 'Armored Batsuit' unlock which didn't actually increase Batman's armor...)

For those who don't have access to the ps3; the Joker challenge maps are the same as Batman's. However, Joker only has 3 gadgets compared to the potential 10 for Batman. Only 1 set of chattering teeth used for distraction, 1 gun with 1 bullet(insta-kill but loud as hell), and X-Ray glasses. These are his "detective vision" that only work when standing still- meaning can't move or crouch or be in cover. Joker is a hell of a lot harder than Batman! Good news- no medals needed for his challenges. Oh did I mention no body armor upgrades either? Yea...

Themes and pic packs aren't considered DLC, for a download to get the DLC abbreviation, it has to add something to the game.

Too bad I sent this back to gamefly last night, but 99% chance in no achievements with the DLC, so not worth a re-rent.

BTW, people complaining about the challenge maps.... yeah, you really need to get better. I beat them all in a day.... twice. Once for my friend. Even managed to pull 80,000+ 35th overall leaderboards at the time on the final combat on my friends profile, and I wasn't even trying on the final round cause I already hit 50k. They really aren't that hard.

I hope that its more than just challenge maps. I have a feeling that it will probably be that or an extra playable character in the challenge maps. Possibly not Joker since I'm sure Sony paid a ton for that exclusivity. It seems if it is free it will be something small like a an extra character...

@67-Well if u keep up with the news section that this site does a great job with, you would have read all the new rules Microsoft laid out regarding DLC, cheevos, and point caps. No free DLC can contain cheevos, only 250 worth of Gs can be released per qtr of the games lifespan(meaning it has to be out 3 qtrs of a year to be able to have a full 1750), and I could be mistaken on this part but I believe they're only allowed 4 cheevos per qtr released. Ergo-PROVED.

I hope it is new challenges, but with added Whacks and Thumps in the little mini explosion signs like in the old Batman and Robin tv show, that would be funny as hell.
#69, the challenges arent solid but yes they are hard, I find the more you play the better you become unless you are naturally talented like #69 that is.

@75 you are wrong, wrong, wrong. In the interview that was done (and the one you referenced) the "source" stated "they had no confirmed knowledge of that..." when asked about free DLC and achievements. So unless you have some other article somewhere, you and everyone else here are just talking rumor. Also the article states up to 10 new achievements per quarter.

New Achievements seems unlikely with a Free DLC, BUT It's been done Before with Army of Two when they released That two extra missions and it came with like 5 Cheevs.

But for Batman I'm thinking its a Two Face themed Challenge map, a prequel chapter of how Bats caught Joker or Hopefully the play as Joker Challenge maps but thats doubtful seeing as the game hasnt been out long BUT then again its pretty popular.

How about a 60's Batman costume, fully voiced by Adam West and adds effects to combat, such as 'Pow!' and 'Blam!' and a few combat challenges in a few classic rooms, like the old museum or one of Joker's old hideouts.

I would buy another few games just for everyone to experience this.

man, and i just returned it after renting it. Might rent it again if the DLC is good enough, definitely wouldn't mind some new challenge maps, because they were actually pretty fun. They might not do that, except for the 'Dem bones map, since it would make the achievements easier. Probably just going to be some new outfits for challenges, still awesome

I have a feeling it will only be a challenge map, but for free who cares.

@82 The only thing I was wrong about was the amount of cheevos per qtr. There are point caps of 1750(retail) and 250(arcade) Webb posted the artical I'm referencing and these rules came straight from Microsoft. NO FREE CHEEVOS weither sponsered by companies or not, Microsoft said if u want extra cheevos ur gonna pay Microsoft Points for them(not in those exact words) Also, wheres ur cited source to say I'm incorrect. U can look up the artical on I'll try to find the link and post it. Free DLC cheevos are a thing of the past :(

It's most likely the Scarecrow challenge map "Dem Bones" that some of us got for preorder at gamestop.

I saw this when I popped the game in a few days ago. . . .I do plan on downloading it seeing how its free . . . but I'm a little interested to see what it is. . . maybe new costumes? I'd like a scarecrow skin (seeing how you already have the setup for him when in his world) a guy can hope.

Chances are, it'll be some map. . . some random map, and even more chances I'll be playing Marvel Ultimate Alliance and Wet by that time lol

@#99: Thats a possibility as well. . . though Gamestop is still dishing these maps out like its no big. . so even if you didnt pre order the game (much like myself) you still got "Dem Bones" for free. . . . which imo bit hard. . . total waste.

it could be batsuits. it could be more challenge maps (would love to get the crime alley map)it could also be more riddler stuff which would be cool.
@ #3 what about the free content i got for bioshock that came with a 100 point brass balls achievement? maybe M$ doesnt do it anymore, but they have before.

I think it will be new costumes/playable charchters for challenges.

Achievements will not be added as it is free it is one of the new rules that have been created like the maximum is 1750 instead of 1250 this came about when valve wanted to put achievements with the survival pack but still have it for free
