Earlier this week Rocksteady and Warner Interactive announced the first vague details and pricing for the season pass to be release alongside the upcoming ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ (read the details here) but now the companies have gone one steps further by announcing details of what will make the season pass and giving us our first look at the Arkham franchise version of Batgirl!

In a statement the two companies announced:

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.
