Yesterday, Rocksteady announced the final DLC update for its popular "Batman: Arkham Knight" game, teasing the possibility for more in 20-16. Today, the developer has debuted the trailer for "The Season of Infamy" expansion pack, available to download today.
The trailer features the four villains making their presence felt in the Arkham reality: Ra's al Ghul, Mad Hatter, Killer Croc and Mr. Freeze. Each one stars in his own separate mission, with individual story arcs.
In addition to the new missions, the "Season of Infamy" downloads also bring with them a new suit, based on the one Christian Bale wore in 2008's "The Dark Knight." While this particular batsuit wasn't part of Rocksteady;s original plans for the franchise, fans took to social media and requested it in numbers high enough that the developer worked with DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. to make it a reality.
