GameStop listing outs Catwoman DLC episodes

In just a few short weeks we’ll all be gliding into the crime-ridden Arkham City as the Caped Crusader for one of the most anticipated games of the year. But what happens after we’ve done all there is to do in Arkham?

According to GameStop’s website, there’s more planned than we’ll be getting at launch. Buried in the bullets of the description for the Limited Edition game guide is a mention of downloadable content, promising some additional playtime spent as everyone’s favorite whip-carrying jewel thief, Catwoman. It’s not the DLC that’s surprising, but the wording: “Bonus Catwoman's Walkthrough: Get complete coverage of Catwoman's DLC content! All 4 episodes are revealed!”

Sure, it’s not the most official source of information, but we doubt the copywriters at GameStop are just making this stuff up. Plus, it’s too specific to be a wild guess. Not only does it mention DLC, but specifically four episodes worth, though we really don’t know exactly what they may entail. The obvious answer would be that they are going to come in the form of Challenge Rooms, as was the case with most of the DLC in Arkham Asylum, but those could hardly be considered “episodes.” If we were the type that looked too far into things (which we are), we’d say that this episodic content might be more story missions, fleshing out Catwoman’s side of things in the Arkham City story. That sure sounds more like an “episode” to us.

Still, maybe it really will just offer more Challenge Rooms. We’re really hoping that’s not all Rocksteady Studios has in store, because for as much fun as those score-driven Challenge Rooms were, we’d be much happier parting with our hard-earned money if it meant a continuation (or expansion) of the story. We’ve reached out to some of our friends at Warner Bros. for more information using our top-notch detective skills, and we’ll keep you posted if we hear anything interesting.

    I should probably be upset DLC being prepared this far in advance isn't included in the game, but I just can't be with this game. I'm looking forward to it too much. I'll postpone the nerd rage until I see if this game lives up to my expectations and we see exactly what the DLC is and what it costs.

    I hope that these episodes don't end up like Heavy Rain's Chronicles.

    Devs are getting carried away with DLC. It's cool and all, and it's fun when it adds to the game, but it seems like they are just holding stuff back to release later so you can spend $140 on one game. It's gotten to the point where some games don't feel finished unless you buy the DLC, or you just feel like you missed out if you decided to hold out on another DLC that made your $60 games $80-90 games. ...Maybe I'm just griping cuz I don't have to $1000 dollars I need to buy all the games I want that come out this holiday... Thank God Mass Effect 3 got delayed (so I can actually play it when it comes out)...

    Why do I have a feeling that these 4 episodes are actually trailers for vanilla challenge room DLC?

    I'm pretty sure they'll be story missions, although I would still enjoy a Catwoman Challenge Room or two.
