'Batman: Arkham Knight' Vies For 'Game Of The Year' Spot? First Of The Four September Slated DLC's Released

By Alex Cruz

"Batman: Arkham Knight," which is reportedly "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's" contender for the game of the year title, released the first among the four September-slated DLC.

 Rocksteady rolled out the Crime Fighter Challenge Pack #1, a DLC that will add six new AR missions to the "Batman: Arkham Knight" game, GameInformer learned. Furthermore, players who wanted to play with the other characters will have the option use Batman, Catwoman, Robin or Nightwing in the challenges.

The next DLC lined up for September is the GCPD Lockdown. Set after Arkham Knight events, this story will allow the gamers to play as Nightwing and stop Penguin from escaping the Gotham City Police Department.

Third on the line-up is the Batmobile pack, which is reportedly inspired by the "Dark Knight" movie in 2008. This DLC pack will add Batmobile Tumbler and two themed tracks.

Fourth is the Original Arkham Batman Skin. Players will be able to use the Arkham Asylum original Batman costume while battling for war in Gotham City.

The remaining three DLCs are slated to be released in the later part of the month, but there are no confirmations yet on the exact dates, as per Geek Snack.

"Batman: Arkham Knight" Crime Fighter Challenge Pack #1 is now available for purchase. The DLC has been reported to be free for players with Season Pass, but can be purchased separately for $1.99.

Meanwhile, "Batman: Arkham Knight" and CD Projekt RED's "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt" are currently being considered for the Game of the Year category, according to Bidness ETC.

While the report stated that both games did extremely well, it pointed out a few drawbacks for "Batman: Arkham City." For one, many fans were disappointed that the console versions left the PC version far behind.

Next, the report pointed out that the game was overly relying on Batmobile, and the tanks that players are supposed to battle against are becoming repetitive. The combat system reportedly is not as energetic as the earlier titles.

Is "Batman: Arkham Knight" good enough to grab the "Game of the Year" title? Sound off below.
