'Batman: Arkham Knight' DLC Has Affleck and Bale, Skips Clooney and Kilmer
And the 'Season of Infamy' expansion features Killer Croc, Ra's Al Ghul, Mr. Freeze, and Mad Hatter.
Warner Bros. Interactive just revealed the last downloadable content (DLC) for Batman: Arkham Knight that will be released until December. Besides the all-important Season of Infamy content that intends to be an entire expansion, the developers have added a few neat treats: Christian Bale’s outfit from The Dark Knight and Ben Affleck’s Batsuit and Batmobile from the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice will be available later this year.
Players were beginning to grouse at not knowing what was in the DLC they’d bought in advance, sight unseen, via the “Season Pass.” Imagine paying for an expensive meal ahead of time but not know what you’re in for. That’s what it was like for Arkham Knight fans.
Is Batman: Arkham Knight the ultimate Batman game? Adding in Michael Keaton’s 1989 look from the classic Tim Burton movie was a dope addition, but now Bale and Affleck? (If you’re an Adam West fan, and who isn’t, his outfit from the 1966 TV show is available as a PlayStation 4 exclusive.)
Still it must suck to be one of the eight fans of Val Kilmer and George Clooney whose Batman costumes are excluded from the alleged final Batman: Arkham installment. You might also be a Lewis Wilson fan, but you must also be really really old.
Here’s a list of all the new content coming this month, November, and December this year to Batman: Arkham Knight.

It’s easy to get excited about the loads of other DLC coming, but this announcement looks like a response to quell the growing agitation the Batman: Arkham Knight fan community had against Warner Bros. Interactive.
Anyway, hey! The studio made good on its promise! And fans seem excited to play the new content coming to the game before the end of the year. Even if some of that content is Ben Affleck.
