Nothing new. Arkham City and Arkham Origins both had Season Passes. Surely no one is honestly surprised by this?

I'm gonna stick with the main campaign only. All the DLC stuff from previous Batman games sucked imo.

Come on everybody! You know what this means, its time to gather 'round and be angry together! *rabble,rabble,rabble*

I don't care, I'll pick it up if the game is good. More content is always welcome.

Affirms my thought to wait for a GOTY edition. I know I'll be waiting, but I can live.

"Regular new content for 6 months including: Story missions, super-villains and more."

I'm okay with them making this last if it's a large Gotham City. Seems logical seeing as it's their final game in this arc.

Nice to know what is planned in advance.
The tweet is a bit vague though.

Well shit. I'll do what I did with MKX, use Best Buy's GCU to get the game for $40, trade it in after a week for a full refund, then wait for the complete edition.

I agree with some of the other comments in here. This is the kind of stuff that makes me wait for the GOTY edition.

Good. Rather than all the DLC getting released individually and hoping that it all goes on sale, I can just wait for the season pass to go on sale and then get everything for half price

Or, I can just do what I did for the other three Arkham games and get the complete editions later on down the line.

Planet Earth.
And the wait is on for the complete edition, its just my personal rule (announce a DLC pass before release = wait for the final version) - shame really as it looks neat, but its SP so i can wait.

I see nothing wrong with a season pass so long as the base game feels complete and the DLC isn't a simply an unlock code.

With that said, I'm expecting some overpriced half assed content.

Season pass before the game is even out... Sigh.
Not just content with everyone preordering the game. Gotta sign up for $40 worth of Season Pass that you have no idea what it will be!
