BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT - Batgirl: A Matter of Family DLC Trailer
The first trailer for the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight DLC for Batgirl has been released. The DLC pack is called Batgirl: A Matter of Family, and it takes place prior to the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum.
The story follows Batgirl as she teams up with Robin "to save her father, Commissioner Gordon, from The Joker at a nautical themed amusement park." When talking to EW about the DLC, producer Justin Vazquez says:
“We wanted to recreate the feeling of being trapped in a bizarre and unique open environment playing a game of cat and mouse with the Joker."
He goes on to discuss Batgirl's skills and how hacking sets her apart from the other characters in the franchise:
“Hacking is really what separates her from the other characters. It’s a gameplay mechanic with which the player can create situations for Batgirl to really shine. Our intention was that Batgirl should be less powerful than Batman, but that Batgirl plus hacking could give her opportunities do things that not even Batman can pull off.”
Batgirl: A Matter of Family will be released on July 14th for Arkham Knight DLC season-pass holders (PS4 and Xbox One, $40), or separately on July 21st for $6.99.
