'Catwoman' May Be Featured In 'Batman: Arkham City' Downloadable Content

Posted by No_Name_ (17403 posts) - - Show Bio

Some people are perfectionists and find that they need to unlock every achievement and complete 100% of a video game to really feel like they've "finished." This isn't something very easy to do on one's own, which is where strategy guide's come in. With the release of 'Batman: Arkham City' around the corner, it's inevitable that there would be a 'Batman Arkham City Limited Edition Official Strategy Guide' currently on pre-order.

So, why are we talking about strategy guides? Seems kind of lame, right? Well yeah, it is, except for the fact that the pre-order form for the Batman Arkham City strategy guide revealed some rather interesting information. According to the guide's description, 'Batman: Arkham City' will feature 'Catwoman' as a playable character for some portion of the game, and the "product details" for the strategy guide on Gamestop's website clue us in to just how much of her we may be seeing.

== TEASER ==

According to this, the game will feature not one, not two, but four episodes where players can control Catwoman via downloadable content. I don't know about you, but being a Catwoman fan, that sounds pretty cool. According to a source, neither Rocksteady nor WB Games have confirmed nor denied that Catwoman will be featured as having four episodes which she will be a playable character, but considering the fact that the release of Batman: Arkham Asylum in 2009 saw the release of "several downloadable Challenge Map packs," it gives the Gamestop listing some credibility.

Are you looking forward to the release of Batman: Arkam City on October 18th, 2011? Are you hoping Catwoman will be a playable character for "four episodes" in the game?

I can't wait to get this game. However I still need to get the 1st one >.> Too many games and very little money. I have also been spending that money on comics recently. I can't get both sadly.

That picture sure is suggestive.

Yes. It's pre-ordered and waiting to be shipped to my place as we speak....or type. The only thing that could make it better is if it had a nice little bow on it

I keep wondering. You remember how the PS3 version of Arkham Asylum had those exclusive Joker levels in the challenges. How pissed would you be if there was some sort of PS3 exclusive with Catwoman?

Though, I'm not for those sort of platform exclusives. They are kind of alright if you are just making them exclusive for so long, then a new months down the line you open them up to the other platforms.

I'm going to have a hard time choosing between this and Uncharted 3. Still, this is a game that I'm so looking forward to that I don't want things spoiled. I've pretty much stopped watching trailers for this game. They're spoiling too much cool stuff.

This is great news. Catwoman is a cool character.

Right on! Revelations about the game just get better and better. It just needs to come out now finally.

I'm more excited as to who the supposed fourth playable character is. Either Nightwing or Talia are both fine choices.

She's in the retail game as a playable character for certain sections. The news here is that some of the DLC will also feature Catwoman as well, in addition to the segments she's already featured in during the main retail game's story.

I actually happen to like strategy guides. As for the Catwoman related news, I'm confused: I thought that Catwoman had already been confirmed as a playable character, regardless of whether or not you get some kind of "special edition" of the game. But now here I am reading this. Does anyone know whats really going on? Will Catwoman be playable in the regular version of Arkham City?

#16 Posted by CptPanda29 (211 posts) - - Show Bio

Catwoman is already confirmed playable right? And Robin?

#17 Posted by iaconpoint (1363 posts) - - Show Bio

The DLC might be extra stuff besides in-game play, like challenge maps. Looks like some good stuff but I don't do strategy guides.

@Shadowdoggy: You can get Robin as a playable character in the "Challenge Mode" complete with his own moves and gadgets plus the Red Robin costume if you pre-order from Best Buy.....

@CptPanda29: Catwoman is confirmed in the game already as playable in the original retail release..this is add on episodes for more content..Robin however is DLC for Special Edition Pre-Orders, for now, and not for story mode, he is for missions like the Joker in the first one.

Forget Tim.He needs to stop stealing Jason's origin when he appears outside of the comics

Jason's doesn't even have a real origin, the only Robin's with go origin stories are Dick and Tim.

I didn't say Jason doesn't have a origin, just not a very good one. Trying to steal the wheels of the the batmobile, that's just dumb.

If kids are playing these games, then that's entirely the fault of the parents or whomever bought the game for ignoring the age rating, because, if you couldn't guess; THESE GAMES AREN'T FOR KIDS.
