Batman: Arkham City fans will soon have their fill of Rocksteady's sequel with the upcoming release of a Game of the Year Edition and the Harley Quinn's Revenge Pack DLC.

Swooping in for retail on May 29 in North America (September 7 in the UK), the Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition will ship with all previously released DLC, including the Catwoman Pack, Robin Bundle Pack, Nightwing Bundle Pack, and Arkham City Skins. In addition, North American versions of the GOTY release will be fitted with a copy of the Batman: Year One animated movie.

The uber-edition will also feature the “final chapter” of Arkham City's DLC, called Harley Quinn's Revenge Pack. As hinted in last week's report, Batman: Arkham City devs tease a fan-favorite for new DLC, the expansion will extend the Arkham City storyline with new missions featuring Batman, Robin, and the psychotic henchwoman in question. As well as starring in the GOTY release, it will be sold as a standalone download on the PlayStation Network starting May 29 (one day later in the UK) for $9.99, and Xbox Live on May 30 for 800 Microsoft Points.

Warner Bros did not list a price for the Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition, but we can safely say it will be worth the cash – especially for those who have yet to lose themselves in Rocksteady's superb Arkham Asylum follow-up.

    Is the additional content going to be on-disc, or does it have to be downloaded? Anybody know yet?

    Awesome news, as due to a fairly big backlog of games to play I haven't bought AC yet so GOTY edition gives me something to look forwards to. However, at the same time i'm slightly annoyed by the exclusivity of a Batman: Year One movie to North America only - would have thought that they would give such a nice bonus to anyone that buys the GOTY edition...

    I wish they would just stop making those DLCs and get to the sequel. I mean come on! Joker is dead Quinn is angry we get all that but what happens next? Give us a new awesome Batman game!

    i believe we have a future "GamesRadar worst box art of 2012" recipient on our hands here.

    Sweet, I'm looking forward to the Harley Quinn's Revenge DLC. I really want to see what happens after the ending, and I know Rocksteady won't disappoint.

    Absolutely stoked for it! I was hoping it'd be a free-roaming Robin pack, where I can explore Arkham City as the Boy Wonder, but this is good enough for me. I can't WAIT to delve into it!

    September 7th?!??!? That is ridiculous, why such a long wait? I hope that's just for the GOTY edition, not the DLC (seems to be?)

    Must be a lot of localization issues :)

    Haha!

    Yeah, as stated in the writing, the DLC is a lot sooner (thank God). It's May 30th, which is still a ways away, but a helluva lot sooner than that!
