All Batman Arkham Knight's exclusive pre-order DLC is in the season pass

Couldn't choose between all the pre-order versions of Batman Arkham Knight (opens in new tab)? Well worry not, as you won't be without your Red Hood/Harley/Prototype Batmobile DLC for long if you're planning to invest in the Batman Arkham Knight season pass (opens in new tab).

Clearing up the issue on WB's Forums (opens in new tab), official community admin Yorick has confirmed that the various expansions currently exclusive to specific retailer preorders such as GAME's exclusive Red Hood content will be available later in the year. "Throughout the 6 months of additional Batman Arkham Knight content, Premium and Season Pass owners will receive all in-game content that is offered through various retail pre-order incentives," he says.

"This includes the Harley Quinn and Red Hood Story Packs, as well as any Batmobile or Booster Pack that was available as early bonuses for pre-order of the game. For those who did not receive the content with their game, these items will become available when their respective exclusivity windows expire in August/ September."

While this does add extra value to the Batman Arkham Knight (opens in new tab) season pass which is priced at a not insignificant £33, it does make your order to a specific retailer slightly redundant. Including extra story missions and Riddler race tracks as well as a Batgirl expansion where you play as Barbara Gordon in her pre-Oracle days, the season pass will be dropping content like lead batarangs over the six months after release. The wait is almost over. A week today and we'll be the Bat once more. Keep out your Detective Vision for our verdict on Rocksteady's brooding finale.
