There’s a reciprocal nature to the success of the many Batman properties that have popped up over the years. The die-hard fans help generate enthusiasm for the product, and when the creators deliver it makes both parties look like geniuses. But those two groups, the creators and the fans, never forsake each other and are always willing to share their gratitude. Such is the case with Rocksteady Studios and Batman: Arkham City.
The developer knew that the success of this Batman follow-up was due to the fantastic debut of the dark knight in Arkham Asylum, and wanted to give back to all who continued the Batman adventure. That gratitude comes in the form of a new Batman skin -- available tomorrow -- inspired by one of Grant Morrison’s iterations of the caped crusader.
But, as any Arkham City player knows, a Batman skin — from Batman Beyond to Sinestro Corps. — cannot be utilized unless the single player campaign has been completed…until now. See, as an added token of appreciation, Rocksteady has released a cheat code that will allow any skin, not just this Grant Morrison free skin, to be worn during the first play through. It’s a very sweet deal, and it shouldn’t adversely impact achievements.
To enter the cheat code, simply start up Arkham City’s main menu and press Left, Left, Down, Down, Left, Left, Right, Up, Up, Down. An audio confirmation will signify the code has been entered correctly, and then players can select their skin.
It always seemed a little bit off that Rocksteady would put all these exciting Batman skins into Arkham City, but wouldn’t allow the player to use them during what would typically be their only experience with the game. Sure it inspires a second play through, but that’s a lot to ask just to wear a new costume.
With this cheat code, though, all those pre-order bonuses and product promotions can be put to good use, and fans can remember that Rocksteady’s series wouldn’t be a success without their mutually exclusive relationship. Now if only that Catwoman DLC had a cheat code.
Are you happy to hear that Batman skins can now be accessed using this cheat code? What has been your favorite Batman: Arkham City skin released so far?
