Details on the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight DLC – Batgirl: A Matter of Family

We reported last weekend about the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight DLC entitled Batgirl: A Matter of Family which features Barbara Gordon and her alter-ego Batgirl.

Barbara Gordon played a supporting role as Oracle in Batman Arkham games but in this latest DLC that is set to release on July 14, she will have her own limelight on the game.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the story revolves around Barbara Gordon’s persona at Batgirl and her mission to save her father Commissioner James Gordon who was kidnapped by Clown Prince of Crime, the Joker. The DLC is also set in new place called Seagate Amusement Park, a theme park in Gotham City that is on top of an oil rig in which Joker built a massive death trap.

“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,” according to Justin Vazquez, Design Producer of the game.

However, don’t expect that Batgirl is as strong as Batman, obviously, because the combat and other feature doesn’t match Batman’s skill but there’s one skill that Batgirl can pull off – her hacking techniques. Batgirl and Batman’s IT expert Oracle is the same person so there is not surprise there that she’s a better hacker than Batman. “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,” added Velazquez.

Another cool feature of this expansion set is the tag team showdown of Batgirl and Robin going against Joker and Harley Quinn, same tag team gameplay just like in Batman: Arkham Knight but instead of fighting with crime lords’ thugs, player will have a chance to beat down Joker and Harley Quinn in her old school black and red spandex costume.

Batgirl: A Matter of Family DLC will be available for free for Season Pass holder on July 14 while others can get it on July 21 for $6.99 and is available on PS4 and Xbox One.
