Batman: Arkham Knight

Batgirl Takes on The Joker in Trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight’s Upcoming DLC

Batman: Arkham Knight is the most expansive Batman game yet, with an overwhelming amount to do and see. If you’ve somehow already accomplished everything the base game has to offer, you’ll be happy to know that Arkham Knight‘s first substantial DLC is just around the corner and the first trailer has just been released.

Titled The Matter of Family, the DLC puts players into the butt-kicking boots of Batgirl, a.k.a. Barbara Gordon, for the first time in the series. The story-based content is set before Barbara was paralyzed by The Joker and became the computer hacker known as Oracle, so naturally it also takes place before the events of the Arkham series. From what the trailer reveals, it looks like Batgirl will be teaming up with Robin in order to save her father from The Joker and Harley Quinn (wearing her awesome outfit from the Animated Series).

The Matter of Family will be available on July 14 for season pass subscribers and July 21st for everyone else at a price of $6.99. While it’s hard not to be a bit wary of the content’s value given the lackluster pre-order DLC offerings Arkham Knight has provided so far, the chance to beat up The Joker and his goons as Batgirl is a prospect that may be hard to pass up.

Have a look at the trailer for yourself and be sure to also check out our review of Batman: Arkham Knight (hint: we loved it).
