More story-based adventures headed to Arkham City?

When asked if story missions would accompany the announced Nightwing and Robin DLC packs, Hill smiled, and told the Guardian: "I don't think I'm allowed to talk about that at this stage."

Early in July Kevin Conroy hinted at Story DLC.

Arkham City: Episodic Content Will Expand Story

It has been revealed that Rocksteady Studios Arkham City will be supported by story based DLC after the games release.

The voice of Batman Kevin Conroy has spilled the beans about ongoing DLC for Arkham City during an interview with ComicBooked.com. The voice actor as well as confirmed that there will be ongoing story based DLC after the main game goes to retail.

ďThe gaming now is a big, new thing. The thing about Arkham City is that itís going to be an ongoing game. Youíre going to be able to download future episodes of it, so itís going to be going on for quite a while. Iíve been recording it for a while. So that will continue.Ē

No official news has been announced, but stay tuned for possible San Diego Comicon news on the subject. I would like to see mision based DLC instead of heavy story based content for the title as I am still one gamer who is reluctant to spend money on a product I have already paid for. Either way expect to see The bat fighting off even more slippery DLC villains sometime after the games release in October.

This, too. If the DLC is just a few additional missions for nothing more than the sake of additional missions, then, well, count me out.

Please be as big as a GTA IV DLC pack, like Gay Tony for example.

I'm interested for sure, the only problem is that it seems like every major release these days has huge DLC planned for the next 3-6 months.

You can't buy every 1200pt add-on.

It's a brave new world. I wonder how much worse things will be in five years? Next gen is going to be out of control.

^This, yes that would be great. More DLC missions for Robin and Nightwing, please, keep them coming. This news put a big smile on my face.

As long as the DLC is substantial and interesting i'll pick it up.

Rocksteady already have characters in the game that i'd love to be able to take out into Arkham City and use their abilities.

And more Catwoman hijinks would be welcome.

There's quite a few aspects of the game that hint to more content being added. Such as Azraels "Ashes of Gotham" talk.

I'm reeeeally hoping for Robin and Nightwing campaigns equivalent to the Catwoman one, and possibly more fleshed-out appearances from Black Mask (unlikely, given who's occupying Sionis Industries) and Scarecrow since there are only really cameos from either of them.

Sounds like there's going to be more from Batman, too, though.

I just figured most of the side story threads they left open were for the next game.

You must have not done much at all then. Plenty to do in the game.

About this, I have a Idea Rocksteady.

How about making a Street of Rage mode where two or more players fight in a side scroller way, waves and waves of enemies? Somebody, send this post to Rocksteady, quick.

I did the same thing. Without spoiling with details. The game I thought finished very well. I think what most people thought the ending was seemed more of an epilogue to me, with the ending being the stuff that happened beforehand.

Sorry for being so vague. Lol.


Back to the subject. I hope that there will be more campaign DLC. But part of me also thinks that Mr. Conroy just might be confused with how things are actually labelled in the gaming world. Maybe to him, more characters and challenge rooms that are "DLC", he thinks are called "episodes". We will see. Fingers crossed.

What the hell? Batman:AC is currently the most content-packed single player game in its genre, EASILY. The fact that they keep giving it more is just a cherry on top of it.

As more developers adopt the multiple DLC or season pass model in part to combat the used game market, this is the conundrum they face. People holding back from buying altogether to buy a goty version. I admit I plan to do the same since there is just too much on my backlog at the moment and even more coming in Nov.

The have options to play with a lot of different scenarios if that's what the want to do. There are a number of locked doors in the game that leave numerous interiors yet to be explored. I would be shocked if they didn't directly effect any future DLC. This game is a potential cash cow and that is extremely rare for a title lacking multiplayer.
