Today Warner Bros. Interactive has announced a season pass for Batman: Arkham Origins. The season pass will be available for Wii U as well as Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. The pack will be available at launch for $19.99 and gives gamers access to five upcoming downloadable content packs, including two exclusive skins.

Players who purchase or pre-order the pass will gain access to the following content:

  • Gotham by Gaslight Batman Skin and Brightest Day Batman Skin
  • New Millennium Skins Pack
  • Infinite Earths Skins Pack
  • Arkham Origins Initiation: Play as Bruce Wayne before he became Batman, and face his final test to prove himself worthy to his greatest teacher, Kirigi.
  • An all-new story campaign

Will you be picking up this season pass when it becomes available?

  • Mostly skin packs? I remember, many centuries ago, when they were unlockable

    • Yeah Arkham City had this problem, too. All of the skin packs for that game were downloadable content and then not two months later they released a Game of the Year edition that included it all.

      • A lot of people state games cannot fit it in anymore. I like to direct them to Resident Evil 4 – 2 unlockable Ada campaigns, 2 unlockable outfits for Leon + Ashley and Mercenaries.

        But hey, Capcom done the same as Batman Arkham City with RE:5’s Gold Edition

          Ocarina of time 3D…. you spend 40 hours plus finishing the game and then you unlock Master quest (for free) and entirely remixed version of the game with all new puzzles.. like a completely different Zelda game!!!!

          • Arthur Jarret

            Originally it was DLC though… for the 64DD.
            HEY! Nintendo started this whole DLC thing O_O.

            OMG, I just blew my own mind!

    • Jack5221

      In Rayman Legends, all the different skins are unlockable via lums. No preorder or DLC needed. Gotta love Ubisoft for not doing this.

      • Arthur Jarret

        Except that assassins creed costume.

        • BIG Franky

          assasins creed costume is for the PS peeps, just like the mario/luigi costumes are for the wii u peeps…. i think the splinter cell costumes are for everyone though…

        • Jack5221

          I meant just the Wii U version 😛 I can confirm that the Mario and Luigi costumes are unlocked via lums.

          • Arthur Jarret

            The WII U got an exclusive AC liberation’s Aveline costume as part of a
            pre-order only.
            If you didn’t play the challenge app, you will be missing out on the disco custome as well.

    I don’t care. Taking away the multiplayer chunk still pisses me off and I won’t get it brand new anytime soon.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      If multiplayer means that much to you, then buy it for the ps3, 360 or PC if you have those. It sucks that the Wii U got ousted there, but to be honest I don’t care for multiplayer with games like these, but that’s just me.

      • NkoSekirei

        i agree i dont think batman games should have multiplayer seriously batman arkham city did fine without multiplayer and so did the first one too

      • Gotallofthem

        I agree, I have Asylum, City, and I never once thought, hmm.. I wish this had multiplayer. I think this game is gold without any Multiplayer, I freaken love these games.

  • wober2

    Since the wiiu does not have online multiplayer does this season pass have everything the other consoles are getting? I assumed season passes are usually multiplayer focused.

    • All the consoles are getting the same thing in regards to the season pass. It’s not multiplayer focused. Mostly skins.

      • Craig

        I remember the days when you bought a game you got the whole game,
        things like this should be unlockable not paid for

        • Majora’s Mask

          It was a good system but one day they thought :Hey why not put something cool in the game to buy extra we would make millions!!!!!!!!!! long story short they got what they wanted

  • Huzefa Javed

    What about Multiplayer?
    None of that on Wii U.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      I think you’re reading too much into it dude. Racism? Lol. Didn’t know the Wii U was a human being.

      • Jared Garcia

        To better describe the Wii U as a person, she’s a lady who was born into a rich family shadowed by her more successful older brother. Hated for being different she trudges on, trying to prove she’s a good person to be with. Of course, the bigger, stronger, more flexible neighbors laugh at her attempt. It’s to be seen if she can really stand among giants in the entertainment industry.

        • Arthur Jarret

          hmmm…. more flexible neighbours. 😛

    • Merrfn

      Dont forget sexism 😀

  • Nope. Gonna wait for GOTY edition.

    Now Arkham Origins Blackgate on the other hand…

  • therealruben1

    how about multiplayer mode instead of skins?

  • SonicLucario

    Wow this is pretty nice to hear, at least they are giving us this since we arnt getting any multiplayer

  • Baum 「ツリー」

    I want to see how much the story DLC is before I buy skins xDD
    Pretty stupid for a season pass, but it’s good to see them supporting Wii U with DLC

  • Marcus Navarro

    Hmm…I feel a song coming to me…

    Ba-dum. ba-dum. Ba-dum ba-dum
    Downloadable content’s a load of nonsense.
    I won’t give ’em one cent.
    It wouldn’t be conscientious
    Encouraging dodgy ventures
    Like when you get robbed;
    do you get your property straight back
    from the fences?
    I want to know what the defense is
    hence this
    musical census.

    Pay attention to community consensus
    to prevent this BACKLASH of HASHTAGS
    and truly contentious lambasts!
    “I hope you’re shoving your Prothean
    up your Fallopean!”
    No wonder why the planet’s becoming dystopian!
    Draconian Napoleons
    Invoking pandemonium
    and I might be blowing my own euphonium by quoting this,
    but I know I’m not the only one that’s pissed!
    My data’s trapped inside a disk
    Sat in lines of script!
    And I have to pay to take it out!
    What kind of shit is this?!

    (cool points and a follow on Twitter to whoever knows this song)

  • Skins do not interest me but a whole new campaign might depending on the individual cost

    • i justify the pre-orders extra content but not the DLCs

  • Brandon Gardner

    I really want to buy this game but I feel cheated if I am paying $60 like everyone else and not getting everything like multiplayer, Deathstroke just to name a few

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    Another game that’s on my wishlist this year.

    • Shadriczo

      Your comments keep on impressing me, keep it up! 🙂

  • Jeffery02

    The Wii U is ACTUALLY getting a season pass?! O_o I don’t agree with season passes, but at least the Wii U isn’t being left out of this one.

  • Jared Garcia

    This is what people wanted to see. They wanted to see the risk and the reward of Nintendo ownership. Now it’s coming to light that WB likes Nintendo, people did like Arkham City AE.

    • NkoSekirei

      finally were getting the dlc treatment good lets hope activision treats us better on ghosts while we got nothing on bo2

  • Møhåmmęd Jårmøn

    Something is better than nothing

  • RandroidRampage

    Wow really got me interested is the play as Bruce Wayne.

  • Yoboyjohn

    So a few months ago,it was “no one owns a wii u so we’re not including multiplayer” but now their giving a season pass
