“Batman v Superman” may still be a solid five or so months away, but that won’t stop Warner Bros from kicking things into overdrive on the advertising front. After all, Batman and Superman are characters that exist on a variety of mediums and platforms, so why not take advantage of it?
This piece of news hits the gaming side of things. As revealed recently via a tweet from the official “Batman v Superman” account, the game “Batman: Arkham Knight” will soon be able to get the “Batman v Superman Batmobile Pack.”
Of course, that tweet is super vague, and doesn’t reveal much of anything. What is comes in this “Batmobile Pack” exactly? Well, after a bit of digging around, we found a post on WB games from WB themselves that outlines all the upcoming “Arkham Knight” DLC for the year. On the list is the pack in question.
It turns out, this DLC includes a Batman skin, allowing players to play Batman in the same suit as the upcoming movie. It also includes the newly-designed Batmobile–as one would expect from a DLC labeled “Batmobile Pack.”
There’s no word yet on how much this guy will cost, though I can only imagine they’d want to make it accessible. After all, this is the DLC that’s supposed to sell a movie, so it wouldn’t make sense if they were to overprice the heck out of it. Here’s hoping that the “Batmobile Pack” will come to all gamers free of charge.
Check out a glimpse at the pack below.
“Batman: Arkham Knight” is currently out for PS4 and Xbox One.
I don’t know about you, but just looking at the skin for the Batfleck suit is enough to get me pumped for the real deal in March. Simply put, Batman looks like a beast in this suit, and I’ve always thought it was a strange and bold direction for Zack Snyder and company to go this direction for it. If you haven’t had a chance to check out the featurette with Michael Wilkinson, the designer of the new Batfleck suit.
“For Batman it was really important for Zack that we created a whole new Batman. He said the most important thing for our Batman is that he comes across as a really hulking big guy. He’s super pumped up. He’s going to be even bigger than Superman in silhouette. And so his strength is not through armor or gadgets and things, but that he’s a tower of muscle. Zack Snyder is a real fan of Frank Miller’s ‘The Dark Knight Returns,’ and we looked a lot at that silhouette when we were making our silhouette.”
