Warner Bros announced via the official Batman: Arkham Knight Facebook page more details regarding the controversial season pass that was announced earlier this week for the game.

“We’ve heard from our community that you want more information on what we’ll be delivering in the Season Pass. While we aren’t ready to unveil every aspect of the content we’ll be developing, we would like to share more detail now to give you a better sense of the scope of the Season Pass,” the post reads.

Many players were concerned about the $40 cost that was revealed for the season pass for the game that will deliver content for six months after the game’s release on June 23.

“We’ll be building more narrative, more missions, more challenges and more characters and vehicles that we want players to experience, even though they didn’t fit into the storyline of Batman: Arkham Knight,” the post continues.

    i’ll be gettin the season pass for sure, well worth it in my point of view

  • Miguel Azevedo

    I will just wait for the Goty edition,i will never support Season pass or DlC that are just made to rip off the fans and support the greedy this publishers have!

    • Michael Fisher

      You’re still supporting a publisher that like to rip off their customers.

    • HAppY_KrAToS

      isso mesmo. with the tons of great games we have, + all the free stuff from ps+, etc, we have enough games to play, there is no reason to buy a game day one. ok, if it’s a game we love, and we are going to play online, it is better to have it soon, to be able to play with friends, etc. but for an offline game like batman, playing it day one, or 4 months later, it will still be the same game.

      you are absolutely right. i think i’m going to start thinking better before running and buying this or that game.

      but the problem is, can we really wait that long, to be able to play a game we love…
      uncharted, god of war, batman, mass effect, tomb raider… damn, those games, it’s just impossible to wait for a goty edition… 🙂

  • bigshynepo

    Or they could’ve just launched with the above story missions and extensions included? Why don’t they just ditch season passes and start charging us $100 for FULL, Complete games? /s

    • Jim Peterson

      Because maybe some people

    • GotNews4Ya

      Or.. Maybe we can get Season Passes for our Season Passes..

    • Mike Nitroy

      I like this^

    • Josué B. Hernández

      Because after charging 100$ per game they will add a extra season pass…

  • Games are expensive enough as it is.

  • Snaked

    Say this game was created over 3 years and costs $60. That is $20 per development year. Now in 6 months they are pumping out content that costs $40. There is no logic in that and can’t ever be close to the quality of the game (or they have been developing this for a longer time and didn’t put it in the regular game).

    I hate this and if the game is good (and I’m sure it will be) I’ll buy the GOTY edition from the discount bin because I don’t apreciate these practices and don’t want them to continue on this path. Otherwise this would have been a day one perchase.

    • GotNews4Ya

      Well.. This isn’t necessarily the full story.. Think of it this way.. Maybe they didn’t have the resources or time to put that stuff into the game. Maybe just maybe they discussed it, and decided to come back to it later if they had time.. and it was really something they wanted to do.. but with the time constraints and money not lining up properly.. It is just better all around to go ahead and cut it out. Then they decide to keep the ideas and use them as DLC later..

      This would explain why some things don’t make it into the game. DLC probably comes up during brain storming, and it just doesn’t fit into the storyline for the game that they are doing.. So they tack it on for additional content.

  • d0x360

    I’m all for more story content but I really don’t care at all about skins or challenge arenas so I guess I’ll go ahead and ASSUME it will be cheaper for me to buy the dlc piece by piece instead of a season pass that has stuff I clearly don’t want. I’m iffy on the race tracks too, they seem like a 2 min distraction at best.

    • Mike Nitroy

      I feel the same way – probably just buy that batgirl and story content and leave those skins….

  • tplarkin7

    The solution is simple. Don’t buy season passes. Just wait for the content to be released, and buy it then. You won’t know if you’ll want that content until then anyways. You may hate the game, and then be stuck with extra content you won’t play.

    • HAppY_KrAToS

      like i said yesterday on another site,
      the culprits are THE PRESS
      the press, that always give 9.5/10 scores to rushed-bugged-unfinished games.
      that press, that should punish games and studios, with lower scores, like 6 or 5/10, if a game is full of microtransactions or other anti-gamer features.
      the same press, that will give perfect 10/10 scores, every single year, to games like call of duty, that are just a copy/paste from the previous year..
      the press that bend over, and will accept any review embargos, which is totally anti-gamer.

      last year, we started seeing 1-2 months reviews embargos. then, it was like 1 or 2 weeks. in 2015, we had 15 hours embargos.
      what’s next ? soon, journalists-websites won’t be able to preview-review a game before 1 or 2 days after release. and later, it will be 1 week after release. and 2 weeks.
      soon, gamers will only discover a game is totally broken, ugly, unplayable, bugged, unfinished, full of microtransactions and locked content, etc, after they buy it. lol, it will be like 20 years ago, without internet, when we had to rely on magazines, before buying a game. soon, despite our 20mb internet lines, we won’t find any content, any previews, any screenshots, nothing, about a certain game, and we will know if the game is good or not, once at home… crazy.

      • tplarkin7

        I agree. The press are not gamers. They are detached from reality. They live in their press bubble and are not able to see the simple truth.

  • Lord Ackercocke

    I’ve pre-ordered the Limited Edition at $100 yet they want more cash from me.

    • Keyes Rushing

      Blame WB. Just look at what happened to Mortal Kombat X. Micro transactions up the butt. I know I’m beating a dead horse here but CDprojectRed should serve as examples of what to do. I got the game for less than 80 dollars. That comes with 2 major expansion packs that are said to offer almost 40 hours of extra content. On top of that they’re giving us 16 free dlcs for minor things like skins and weapons. That’s stuff every other publisher nickels and dimes us for.

  • Jonathan M. Jacobs

    This still isnt a good deal. DONT BE EXCITED FOOLS

  • dogmanx23

    If these extra missions and games give you more then 2 extra hours of gameplay, it might be worth it to me. I know gamestop is offering Red Hood pre-order DLC. That better come in this season pass.

  • HAppY_KrAToS


    -why not simply adding “EXTRAS” to the main menu, with, eventually, some locked content that gamers can only access once they have finished the main game/story ?
    – why giving me more different enemies AFTER i have finished the game? just give me those enemies WHILE i’m playing the main campaign, so i don’t have to kill 300 cloned guys, that all look the same, with the same colors, same outfits, same everything.

    when i think about the extra billions the gaming industry has made, 4 or 5 years ago, before the $ and the euro collapse… i remember paying like 110-130$ for a new ps3 game (once the euros were converted into my currency(… a true joke, compared to the 59 bucks in the US…

    the same with UK. ok, so, that thing costs 150$ ? ok, it will cost 150£. and that, it costs 199$ ? ok, it will cost 199 euros.

    it’s just mind boggling, how all these companies went crazy with the cash. it’s like they are “seeing” or “feeling” something is going to happen, to the game industry, in the next couple of years, and everybody tries to sell whatever they can, season passes, dlc passes, online passes, content, outfits, ANYTHING.
    what’s next ? a 2$ pack, so gamers can change the controls scheme, and use R1 instead of R2 for shooting ? what about a 3$ dlc, so gamers can access and see the “making of”, of the game, like all the videos in god of war 3, that came in the disc, with amazing interesting videos of different people, their work, etc.

    what about asking 10$ for people to play in a closed beta, and 20$ for those who weren’t invited, but still want to participate ?

    what about putting some beta games in the disc, and asking 5$ for a “preview our game before your neighbor” pack ?

    i loved the batman games, have finished begins-asylum-city at least 3 times.. it’s sad to see the next batman is going to be another game where all that counts to the studio is quickly making their 1-1,5 billion$ in the first 3-4 weeks, with the expensive 40$ season pass (i imagine buying everything separately will cost like 50 or 60 bucks…)… another studio that will lock content, just to deliver it as dlcs… another game we will play, without having some major important features, weapons, items, outfits, characters, that may only be accessible to those who will almost pay the game 2 times…

    sad times, i say…

    what are studios going to do, in 2016 ? at this pace, soon, we will be paying 60 bucks only to have the main menu and the first 10% of the game. if we want the 90%, we will have to buy the “story dlc”, for another 60 bucks.

    wait wait, i have an idea. why not releasing a game, with tons of bugs, and releasing a 5$ dlc “bug priority”, where those who pay will get beta patches before all the other gamers, and hopefully, will have a more playable game.

    shame, really.
