When pre-orders for the June release of Rocksteady games final instalment in the ‘Arkham’ franchise ‘Arkham Knight’ were put up one of the first bits of info to come to light was that all pre-orders would come with a Harley Quinn playable DLC pack.
Avid fans will note that there is also a playable Red Hood pack coming but details on that are still sparse.
Today (via Amazon.com) comes news on the story of the Harley Quinn pack which serves as a prequel to the main ‘Arkham Knight’ storyline. The DLC is described as follows:
“For the first time in the Arkham series take on the role of Joker’s psychotic side-kick Harley Quinn and wreak havoc inside the Blüdhaven Police Department. With this exclusive Story Pack experience events in the lead-up to Arkham Knight as you infiltrate Blüdhaven to rescue your partner in crime: Poison Ivy. Delve deep into Harley’s demented nature and utilize her devastating baseball bat to smash, crash and bash your way to a friend very much in need.”
Interesting to see the setting of the game shift to Gotham’s neighbouring city Blüdhaven which fans will know as the home of Nightwing who has made several appearances in the previous ‘Arkham’ games.
Which are you looking forward to more: Harley Quinn DLC? Or Red Hood?
