The top-selling game of 2011 returns fully loaded.

We've been talking about the Game of the Year edition of Batman: Arkham City. If you've been waiting to buy the game, today is the day you make the purchase. Available in North America for Xbox and PS3, the Game of the Year edition comes with all the previously released downloadable content (DLC) packs, Batman Year One movie download and Harley Quinn's Revenge, which adds more than two hours of completely new gameplay.

Harley Quinn's Revenge features playable chapters for both Batman and Robin as they uncover Harley's plans for vengeance against Batman for the events that occurred in Batman: Arkham City. If you've already purchased and played the game, you can download Harley Quinn's Revenge today in the Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for Xbox 360 and PlayStation®Network.

The DLC will be available for PC in early-June and the Game of the Year edition is scheduled for release in Europe, Australia and other global territories in September. The DLC included on disc includes the Catwoman Pack, Nightwing Bundle Pack, Robin Bundle Pack, Challenge Map Pack and Arkham City Skins Pack. All in, Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition packages new gameplay content, seven maps, three playable characters, and 12 skins in addition to the full original game.

I'm psyched about this DLC. I'm gonna get this and the Nightwing pack which I've been meaning to get for awhile.

im downloading it now as we speak (on Xbox 360). Hopefully this means I can use Robin in the city.

I pre ordered the dc code. From GameStop. Now I just have to wait for them to send me the code.

As I understand it the DLC takes place in the Joker area of the City and you switch back and forth between Robin and Batman segments. So there will be some Robin in the city but in a very focused way.

When the Ps3 updates today, I'm gonna buy me the DLC.. It needs to hurry up, I'm waiting still....

Posted by TheHeat

This game sold  more than MK, Skyrim, and Portal 2? Wha?

Posted by htb106

what? I have to wait until September to get the GOTY version? I have to wait to play as robin in the actual story?

I was really looking forward to this.

Of course I'm still looking forward to this but I just can't wait that long.

I played the Harly dlc , and I have to say that it was dissapointing to be honest :P Harley turend out to be a cliche villain in this . Rocksteady didn't do anything cool with her here ,I wish Harley could do more damage or be more threatning as a villain......

I really want to play this DLC but sadly GFWL treats me as a criminal and it is not available in my region......So there goes my ''legit'' buy chance.

Posted by MasterofChaos

Wow. I guess I'm glad I never got around to getting this yet.

Posted by Grimoire

Have to wait two very...very...very long days until I have the money to get this DLC. lol

FOR THOSE THAT HAVE A LISTIA ACCOUNT

I WILL GIVE U 2000 CREDITS FOR THE DLC OR TRADE U ANY OTHER ARKHAM CITY DLC

@Mr. Kamikaze: no Robin in the city, which sucks. Right now I'm looking for it on Playstation netword and can not find it anywhere. I'm getting pissed off.

Posted by JamDamage

@KRYPTON : It's on right now. I'm DLing it as of now.

Posted by Or35ti

Can't wait to download the DLC. Was the game really the top-selling of all year?

Posted by Novemberx2

@Mr. Kamikaze: you cannot, Its a standalone thing. the option appears on the main menu, you are stuck following the liner mission. you cannot go explore it all

Posted by BlackArmor

Selling my old copy and replacing it with this because I don't have any of the download content or year 1 and even if this isn't cheaper its easier than getting all of that

Posted by The Lobster

Just played it.....totally worth the 10 bucks.

Posted by csl316

I should really walk downstairs and download this. I've had my fill of Arkham City, but more Harley is always a good thing.

Posted by edtie97

I was wondering if this was worth the buy?

Posted by Avenging-X-Bolt

Beat it about an hour ago. It was alright.

Man... Anyone know if 7/11 sells PSN cards?

Edited by War Killer

Having played and beat this new episode, I want to first admit that I did enjoy the game play and had a fun time through the episode. But there were three things I didn’t like about it and were disappointed in:

Overall, again while an enjoyable play through, this episode feels nothing less more of an extra side-mission than the supposed “Final Chapter” of the game that it has been claimed to be. Taking major plot points left off by the second game which could have easily been taken and used in a third installment and are instead reduced to just another crazy that Batman is forced to stop; adding nothing new to the Arkham games but in the end feeling like a rushed idea to cash in on the game’s success.

I may have to try this sometime ^_^

I already beat the DLC, it took me about 30 minutes or more to do it.

Posted by ssejllenrad

Too short.

Posted by wowylied

A real let down. Too short, we can't use robin in the main map, the story is empty and the fight (like the boss) are boring as hell.

A really bad dlc, even the one with catwoman was better.

Posted by doomsilver

That is a big gun....

Posted by FoxxFireArt

From everything I've been hearing, this DLC is incredible short considering all the build up it was given. Many have said it will take under 2 hours.

Posted by Bestostero

I hate to say this, I really do, but this dlc was a waste of money! It is definitely not worth 9.99...should've been 4.99. It's short, it's pointless, it doesn't give any resolution or feel of accomplishment, it was very brief and unsatisfying. I was hoping that Robin was gonna be the main focus, but Batman was still pretty much still the main character. (you would switch playing Robin and Batman)

Posted by MetallicMercury

I saw the walkthrough. It was terrible.

Posted by KidSupreme

I gotta download this new upgrade!
