Batman: Arkham Origins' $20 season pass adds missions, costumes

Batman: Arkham Origins takes the story of the Dark Knight back into his days a hot-headed thug, unworthy of the mantle of the World's Greatest Detective. Arkham Origins Initiation, a set of challenges played as Bruce Wayne, depicts his final test as a student of the martial arts, and it's available as part of the game's season pass.

The $20/£16 pass also includes an all-new story campaign, Warner Bros. Interactive announced today. If the wide world of alternate universe Batmen is your thing, the pass will also come with three sets of skins: the New Millennium Skins pack, the Infinite Earths Skins Pack, and the Gaslight Batman and Brightest Day Batman skins.

The contents of the five packs would cost $30/£28 if bought individually. The game will release on PC, PS3, Wii U, and Xbox 360 on Oct. 25 worldwide. You can check out our preview of Batman: Arkham Origins from earlier this week here.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
