Batman: Arkham City's Nightwing DLC on sale now

Batman: Arkham City's first DLC, the Nightwing Bundle Pack, just went live on XBLA and PSN. Besides allowing you to play as Dick Grayson all grown-up and scowly, the pack adds two additional Challenge maps to the list of accessible areas, both within Wayne Manor.

Above: If your resume read “Master of multiple martial arts; trained by Batman,” you'd probably make a big deal about it too

The pack offers two skins for Nightwing: besides the regular Arkham City-style outfit, you can also don the Animated skin, which renders the character closer to his appearance within the WB cartoon series. Both play just the same – and as you can see from the trailer, that's a departure from Batman's play style, with a stronger reliance on speed and maneuverability. The pack's available now for 560 MSP or $6.99 on PSN, to be complemented by the Robin pack on Nov 22.

    You never know Rocksteady might make some more DLC for Nightwing. To have Nightwing involved in the open world of the actual game sees impracticable though as Nightwing can only use the grapnel hook and he cant glide.

    at first i didn't think it was worth it either. but i am now addicted to playing the challenge maps as both batman and catwoman, so i can't wait to get my hands on this and robin as well. also does anyone know if the 6.99 price is fixed or is that just a sale right now, and it will jump back up to 9.99 later?

    The price is fixed. Doubt it will change, you are best waiting and getting the bundle with Batman skins, Robin and Nightwing together at a cheaper price.

    Doesn't seem worth it. I really wanted to see some campaign DLC with these.

    Same. I don't have the game, but I'd buy it a lot sooner if I could play as him during the campaign. @rapmaster- I'm assuming he'd be able to use SOME of the gadgets, and his lack of gliding ability might be fun for players who want more difficulty?
