They also confirmed that it will be approximately the same length as Arkham City’s story DLC, Harley Quinn’s Revenge.
“It is in line with our angle of the origins – not necessarily of characters, but of key relationships. It is a DLC that will focus on one of the most key relationships in Batman canon.”
Whilst it should be noted that a lot of the GameInformer article doesn’t actually confirm anything (it doesn’t confirm Robin or an early 2014 release), we do agree with those suppositions. We’d also like to throw in a prediction that the DLC will include additional PS3 Trophies and Xbox360 Achievements.
It’s fairly safe to assume that we’re looking at content involving an early Robin, rather than a pre-Robin Dick Grayson, especially as Mattes states that it’s about relationship, not origin. However, it could also expand on Batman’s relationship with Jim Gordon or his daughter stepping up to her role as Batgirl.
What do you think that we’ll see?
The Worst Nightmare Batman Skin has been removed from all versions of the game. For PS3 and Xbox 360 players, when completing I Am The Night Mode, players are awarded the Waynetech Theme for PS3 and the Batman Avatar on Xbox 360. PC and Wii U players do not unlock anything upon completion of I Am The Night Mode.
It’s currently unclear why this change has been made or if the skin will be made available in another form at a later date.

Black Mask Challenge Maps, Infinite Earths Skin Pack and Joker/Bane Vainty Pack Available for Arkham Origins
The aforementioned DLC is now available to download (purchase) for Arkham Origins gamers. The Season pass only qualifies you for the Skins Pack, unfortunately, but you can WIN one of the other two packs (along with other goodies) here.
The Arkham Origins stuff crops up early and we’ve been promised more info, including a release date, soon.
It appears that the Initiation DLC will add two more trophies to your Arkham Origins cabinet. Good spot by xbox360achievements.
Initiation will be released in the first week of December, which is next week.
Unfortunately, none of these are real products, just concepts from a talented graphic designer.
Two New Skin Packs are being released next week on the 26th for Xbox and, we believe, 27th for PS3.
The contents of the Season Pass were revealed a while ago, but don’t mention a multiplayer Elseworlds pack. It will be interesting to see what this contains and if it will be included in the Season Pass or not. We suspect that it won’t be included, however, as the $2.99 price point seems low enough to appeal to impulse buyers.
Batman Arkham Origins: Infinite Earths Skin Pack 26-Nov $4.99
Batman Arkham Origins:MP #1 DC Elseworlds Pack 26-Nov $2.99
The Arkham Collection edition includes all of the Arkham Games released to this date so far, including the two GOTY editions of both Asylum and City. Sony users can expect Knightfall content in their edition of Origins.
While the box set will include a physical copy of Arkham Origins, Asylum and City are redeemable via download codes, so those hoping for another physical copy may feel slightly disappointed when the edition arrives.
The edition is expected to arrive on November 22 in the UK, with the international release still pending.
Will you be picking up the collection? Sound off below!
For months we’ve heard the denials, Arkham Origins was to be a current gen game only.
However, SixthAxis have found an image that may confirm that the Batmn prequel is being ported onto the next gen. The image is from an instore display at the York branch of GAME.
We are recommending that you take this with a grain of salt. Even assets for gaming stores can be printed in error; recall the Play as Black Mask maps from GameStop. We had those confirmed with a GameStop manager and they still turned out to be wrong.
If true, we’ll no doubt see some kind of confirmation in the coming weeks. We’ll keep you posted.
One of our followers, and prolific YouTube user, @ArkhamOrigins_ has captured video of a match featuring many of our site members (including myself playing as Batman).
If you have captured us playing Arkham Origins multiplayer, then send us a link to the video and we’ll happily share it around.
