Arkham Origins Exclusive Pre-Order Bonus Topic

The third playable character for Batman: Arkham Origins has been revealed as Black Mask.

No details yet on his play style, but it would be safe to assume that he has handguns and small knives. The DLC, available free as a preorder bonus through GameStop, contains two new challenge maps and allows players to play as Black Mask, similar to the Deathstroke DLC.

No word yet on where this DLC will be available outside of the USA. Topic will be updated as information presents itself.

So, who has immediately decided to switch their pre-order to GameStop?

IMPORTANT UPDATE 26/07/2013:
ImageIt turns out that GameStop made a mistake in their initial promotional assets.GameStop changed their adverts shortly after we ran we the story and other sites picked up our report. Game developers Eric Holmes and Ben Mattes have taken to twitter to clarify matters:

Amazon Italia have listed an 'exclusive' Special Edition of Batman: Arkham Origins, priced at €64,99 (roughly £56 or $86).
There are no details listed at the moment, other than the image of a steelbook.

Thanks to Gianpaolo Trotta who shared the link with us on Facebook.

(Crys Tears of Joy) This is the GREATEST thing I've heard in a long time. Though I just looked on the Gamestop site and found no information regarding this, so could you send us some proof please?

Everyone's getting Deathstroke as long as you preorder; just like Catwoman.

Waiting for an image or similar from JoeChill as proof (I believe him, but I need proof to post it as a news story). In the meantime, any other GameStop employees could send us some images out.

Deathstroke's not even a pre-order bonus is he? I was under the impression the code for him will be in every single new copy of the game, but the adverts and whatnot cite him as being one to encourage pre-orders. They're not lying, mind, but I don't think the character is solely a pre-order bonus.

Interesting...wondering how they will make his play-style. 3rd person shooter-type maybe? Still pretty excited though!

Does that necessarily mean he's playable? It says black mask challenge maps. But that could mean they are places that black mask owns.
