Update: We have today learned more details about the upcoming Batgirl DLC for Arkham Knight.
The add-on takes place prior to the events of Arkham Asylum and will be set in a theme park called the Seagate Amusement Park, where Batgirl is trying to save Commissioner Gordon from the Joker. The park is built on an oil rig and Joker has it rigged to explode.
“We wanted to recreate the feeling of being trapped in a bizarre and unique open environment playing a game of cat and mouse with the Joker,” says Justin Vazquez, design producer of the DLC. “Our intention was that Batgirl should be less powerful than Batman, but that Batgirl plus hacking could give her opportunities do things that not even Batman can pull off.”
Batgirl: A Matter of Family is out July 14 for season pass holders, and July 21 for everyone else.
