Free Batman DLC detailed

Free Batman DLC detailed

The new DLC for Batman: Arkham Asylum will be completely free and available for all platforms, says Eidos.

Eidos has finally provided the first details on what will be in the new downloadable content packs for Batman: Arkham Asylum, which have been teased in the already available console versions lately.

Due for release on Thursday, the DLC is called The Insane Night pack and contains two extra maps for Challenge Mode, which tasks Batman with clearing an area as fast as possible.

The first map in the pack is called Totally Insane and is a straight-up action map set in Arkham Asylum's Record Room, with Batman having to punch his way through some of the Joker's fastest and most lethal goons - Eidos promise it'll strain even accomplished players.

The second map is a stealthier affair, called Nocturnal Hunter, with Batman having to incapacitate the foes without arousing too much attention.

The DLC pack will be totally free and is headed to all platforms, PC included, even though the PhysX-enhanced PC version of the game doesn't go on sale until Friday. Our review will be going up shortly though, so make sure you keep a close eye on the Gaming Index.

You'll have to wait a bit longer for our thoughts on the PC version, but if you've already tinkered with the console version then let us know your thoughts in the forums.

can’t wait to get this game on pc, played the PC and xbox demo and loved it and the Nvidia physx details do add that little something to the game compared to console versions

ooo somehow completely missed that the PC version had PhysX enhancement! Awesome! This seems like a game that would really benefit, assuming there's decent implementation of the cloth physics for the cape as well as atmospheric effects...

Why is it that Eidos can release free DLC on Xbox Live, but Valve keeps saying MS won't let them release theirs for free? Does MS have a double standard or is Valve lying?

1 free content update, charge for further content. I think valve have already used the free update for L4D?

Pretty much, I think.
