Warner Bros has detailed Batman: Arkham Knight's season pass last week over Facebook, explaining why it has a $40 tag.
The season pass is said to add more Batman story missions; a prequel story that makes Batgirl playable; 'Gotham City Stories' which will give players the chance to play different characters from Batman's plentiful roster of friends willing to part punches; as well as various character skins, challenge maps and batmobile tracks.
Writing on Facebook, the publisher detailed the season pass content over the course of six months following release. So, here's a full breakdown of said pass:
"Earlier this week, we announced the Season Pass for Batman: Arkham Knight. While the story of Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Trilogy will come to a close on June 23rd, we are excited to continue telling stories and delivering more content to explore and play through in the 6 months following the game’s release. We’ll be building more narrative, more missions, more challenges and more characters and vehicles that we want players to experience, even though they didn’t fit into the storyline of Batman: Arkham Knight."
"We’ve heard from our community that you want more information on what we’ll be delivering in the Season Pass. While we aren’t ready to unveil every aspect of the content we’ll be developing, we would like to share more detail now to give you a better sense of the scope of the Season Pass."
