"Batman: Arkham City" Gets Sidekick Action With Nightwing Bundle Pack

Nightwing will have the chance to bust some heads in Gotham's new ill-advised prison complex!

Only a short two weeks after its release, the sales juggernaut Batman: Arkham City is getting its first piece of paid DLC featuring Nightwing. This is part of the planned rollout for the month of November DLC which will end with the Robin Bundle pack on November 22nd. The challenge-heavy pack will allow you to jump in as Nightwing and play through the existing challenge maps as well as adding a couple of new ones to the current roster.

Here's what you get in the pack:

Nightwing comes complete with his own unique gadgets and special moves, and is playable in all challenge maps in the game, as well as two additional challenge maps that are included with the pack: Wayne Manor and Main Hall. The pack also contains a bonus Animated Series Nightwing character skin.

While I'm excited to already have more of the game to play post-release, the disappointment here is that the DLC won't include any new story content. Sure, it'll be cool to knock some heads around as a new character, but extending and expanding the narrative was something I was really hoping the updates would do. It's not like this is a surprise or anything, since Rocksteady and WB Interactive were up front about what was included in the DLC, but a guy could still want more, right?

The "Nighwing Bundle Pack" will be available on November 1st for 560 MS Points on the 360 and $6.99 on PSN. The "Robin Bundle Pack" will be available for the same price on November 22nd.
