Despite getting hit with a whirlwind of DLC so soon after the game’s release, and nothing much after, Batman: Arkham City fans held out hope that developer Rocksteady still had something cooking. It was an arduous task, holding on to the game once all 400 of the Riddler trophies had been discovered, but it appears that all that patience might be paying off.
According to some new trophies that have appeared, Batman: Arkham City might be getting a new DLC pack that revolves around The Joker’s sidekick Harley Quinn. Even more exciting, though, is this DLC might be starring not Batman, but his own sidekick, Robin.
There’s no confirmation regarding this DLC at the moment, and it being plainly titled Harley Quinn DLC seems a bit suspicious, but if it means more Batman that’s fine by us. Some dutiful analysis of the trophy selection suggests that the DLC might come with a few new challenge maps and might feature a few new locations as well. The rest of the trophies are standard fodder — kill this many thugs in this way or complete this task in a predetermined amount of time — nothing much to glean from them unfortunately.
See below for the full list:
After it was revealed that Robin wouldn’t be playable during the main campaign of Batman: Arkham City a lot of fans felt like Rocksteady missed an opportunity. Sure, Catwoman was the main showpiece for this iteration, but getting to play as the Boy Wonder, and to experience a Rocksteady story crafted for him, was much more exciting. Now, if this DLC is for real, fans might finally be getting their wishes granted.
It’s also completely plausible that Robin will only be playable during the aforementioned Harley Quinn’s Revenge Challenge Map, but based on the way things wrapped up for Batman in Arkham City, and the fact that we know Robin was lurking around there somewhere, we’re still going to hold out hope.
Based on the trophies what do you think this DLC for Batman: Arkham City will be all about? Is there a part of the storyline in the game that you felt was left untold?
