I hope the other is Futures End. Would be a nice way to round it off. Beginning, middle, and end (future).


I haven't read much of the New 52 yet, especially not the latest, which suit do you mean?
This one?

Nope. That's the Bat Suit from Futures End's future, I believe. The Futures End Bat Suit is mostly black and looks awesome and I'm sorry but I can't be bothered to Google it right now :oldyella:

Added some details for Red Hood and Harley's story packs and a few other things (Flashpoint skin, GameStop merch).

With the announcement of the other three characters from city being in game, I've assumed that the other new 52 skins would be for two of them (my guess would be nightwing and catwoman, with an eventual separate Damian skin

It wouldn't make sense nor be fair to leave Robin out. This simply won't be the case either since we won't be playing as these three during free roam, so why bother with skins when we'll only see them in a handful of missions? Then again, I suppose it would apply to any cut scene they show up in too. Still, I highly doubt this will be the case if not just for that first reason.

Ah. Hmm. We'll probably have them as their own playable characters in the maps, though.

Updated the thread with new information from the latest Arkham Insider: some new Combat moves and one new detail for the Batmobile, and another for the Open World section.

How do you know that? It's true that there are Season Pass/DLC missions for them, but that doesn't say that Nightwing/Robin/Catwoman aren't free-roam at all.

Sorry, I'm just making the assumption that since we can only use them in Dual Play for certain missions, that'll be it. I suppose it doesn't rule out actually having story missions where we play as them.

It literally says in the season pass they'll be getting there own stories. They'll be free-roam for at least a portion of gotham I would assume.

Gotham City Stories
Play as Batman’s key allies in narrative missions extending their storylines, from both before and after the events in Batman: Arkham Knight.


They aren't saying that those characters are limited to that area they're saying that dual-play is limited to those areas. The characters could very well have free roam.

Yeah, I know that. I was referring to the main game's story.

It could be like catwoman in arkham city, where you are only able to play as them at select times during the story, but are able to free roam after it is completed

Probably one of, if not the final update.

New information from E3 (live demo with Geoff Keighley from YouTube & the PlayStation live demo) includes: Gadget wheel, Most Wanted wheel, number of gadgets, a "new" gadget (replaces the Cryptographic Sequencer), number of Most Wanted missions, and the GCPD evidence lock-up room.

I think that's it...

Oh, and that the season pass will include the pre-order DLCs too. Ah, and some more controls.

I highly advise avoiding searching for any Arkham Knight videos on Youtube as playthrough videos have already started surfacing and I've seen the early moments of the game (not a big spoiler for myself as I did see the footage shown at E3).
