In a recent post on the Batman: Arkham Origins support forms, it has been stated that there are no current plans to fix any more of the numerous progression blocking bugs that have yet to be addressed. Instead, all effor...

Batman: Arkham Origins hit multiple platforms last year, and in addition to a few costumes and a challenge map pack, the game's Season Pass is set to deliver a new story campaign. But it appears as if the Wii U will not be jo...

The Clayface toy just wants to be your friend

The latest figure from the Batman: Arkham City lineup is Clayface. The figure comes in at 13-inches tall, making it the largest action figure in the DC Collectibles line. Bigger than Solomon Grundy, Killer Croc, and Titan Jok...

YES! New Arkham Origins DLC is likely Mr. Freeze related photo
YES! New Arkham Origins DLC is likely Mr. Freeze related
by Chris Carter

When the Batman: Arkham Origins Facebook page teased an event happening at the Humanitarian Awards, many of our readers guessed that it was a reference to an episode of Batman: The Animated Series. Well it appears as if they're right, as the crew has just revealed a picture for a new story DLC coming in 2014, and it's completely frozen over.

Yep, although they haven't come out and said it, it's more likely than not that Mr. Freeze will be heading up this add-on. I don't have any real confidence in Warner Bros. Montreal in terms of producing DLC, but that doesn't stop me from rooting for one of my favorite Batman villains. I'm sure some people are tired of Mr. Freeze after Arkham City, but I can't get enough of him, personally -- and if done right (just rip off The Animated Series, guys), this DLC could have a pretty killer story.

Review: Batman: Arkham Origins: Initiation photo
Review: Batman: Arkham Origins: Initiation
by Chris Carter

I was pretty disappointed with Arkham Origins. Maybe not as crushingly disappointed as Jim was, but I still felt like it was the weakest entry in the Arkham saga so far, and Warner Bros. Montreal didn't really do anything to make me confident in the future of the series.

Sadly, the newest DLC doesn't do them any favors either.

Arkham Origins teasing Humanitarian of the Year Awards

Today is the day that the Arkham Origins Facebook page is going to make a "surprise announcement," and it looks like the first hint has been dropped. The post simply states, "You are cordially invited to the Humanitarian...

Batman Arkham-related announcement inbound

See that image above? Well, it was posted on Batman Arkham's official Facebook page along with instructions to "visit this page on December 31st for a special announcement." Could it be some Arkham Origin's DLC? A new entry into the series itself, perhaps? Batman Arkham [Facebook]

Batman: Arkham Origins gets free 'Hunter, Hunted' mode photo
Batman: Arkham Origins gets free 'Hunter, Hunted' mode
by Jordan Devore

I'm not currently playing Batman: Arkham Origins' multiplayer. Are you? Are your friends?

WB Games has release a new mode for the game, and I hope someone's out there enjoying it. "Hunter, Hunted" is a free addition on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 in which three Joker thugs, three Bane thugs, and Batman try to outlast each other with no respawns.

As appealing as it is to play as the Caped Crusader, man, talk about pressure. Glad to see this mode arrive in a free update so as to avoid splitting up the player base.

That Batman: Arkham Origins ninja DLC has a new trailer

As you may have heard, Batman: Arkham Origins is getting psuedo-story related DLC. It'll hit the PS3, 360, PC and Wii U tomorrow, and will focus on Bruce Wayne's pre-Batman training. You'll net a new mini chal...

Batman: Arkham Origins is getting story DLC in December

Batman: Arkham Origins is no stranger to DLC, and alongside of the lackluster Season Pass comes the announcement of the first story related add-on. I use the word "story" lightly, as the game is actually a challenge map&...

Batman: Arkham Collection to bundle your Batmen photo
Batman: Arkham Collection to bundle your Batmen
by Steven Hansen

Warner Bros. is bundling its Batmen with the Arkham Collection, set to release in the UK on November 22.

The package consists of a physical copy of the newly released Arkham Origins, which Jim did not like. It also seems to retcon Arkham Origins Blackgate from the series by exclusion. The previous, Rocksteady-developed Arkham Asylum and Arkham City are included via download codes.

Strangely, only the PC bundle includes all of the Game of the Year Edition content for the previous two games, though the PS3 bundle at least has Origins' Knightfall pack. All the PC copies are Steam compatible. No word on pricing or a release outside of the UK. Also no word on why you should buy this instead of just buying the first two better games on the cheap.
