As already announced, Warner Bros. Montreal’s Batman: Arkham Origins will have a Season Pass, and now we have some details about the first piece of DLC known as Initiation, as well as the on disc I Am The Night mode straight from the game’s producer Guillaume Voghel.
Batman: Arkham Origins’ Initiation DLC will actually be the first part of the Batman: Arkham games that does not take place in Gotham City, as it will be set in Asia before Bruce was even Batman. You will be playing as Bruce Wayne while he trains to be a ninja and prove himself worthy to his teacher Kirigi, who also trained Ra’s Al Ghul’s League of Assassins.
“[But] it’s not League of Assassins, it’s ninja-related,” Voghel continued. “It’s when he learned to be a ninja and learned those techniques. He goes to a monastery – custom content was created for the DLC. You’ll be in Asia in the monastery. The team did a great job on that, it looks really good.”
He also discussed a mode in the game known as I Am The Night, that will be unlocked when you complete a New Game+ playthrough. This mode gives you no saves and only one life, so this will be for the most hardcore of gamers to try and attempt.
Batman: Arkham Origins will be released on October 25 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC.
