'Batman: Arkham Knight' DLC: Playable Deathstroke And Harley Quinn Campaign Details Released As Christian Bale 'Dark Knight' Batsuit Available As Pre-Order Bonus Rumored

The Batman: Arkham Knight DLC is going to feature playable Deathstroke and Harley Quinn campaigns as well as having the Christian Bale "Dark Knight" Batsuit skin as a pre-order bonus for the PS4.

According to the reports of Cyberland, the PS4 version of Batman: Arkham Knight will be home to exclusive content such as the playable Deathstroke campaign and the Christian Bale "Dark Knight" Batsuit. The Harley Quinn campaign will be available on PC and Xbox One.

Cyberland reported that the Batman: Arkham Knight Deathstroke DLC will focus on Slade Wilson being hunted down by the Suicide Squad after Slade rejected the offer of joining the team. The Harley Quinn DLC will focus on Harley Quinn hunting down Ra's Al Ghul in hopes of convincing him to revive Joker from the dead.

Fans of the Batman video game franchise are familiar with this scenario: the Dark Knight finds himself in a room with several villains, gracefully dashing between each delivering a flurry of punches and kicks.

During one takedown, Batman gets a special assist. After unleashing an uppercut that sends an enemy airborne, he's dropped to the ground by the riot suppressor from the Caped Crusader's biggest asset: the Batmobile.

Returning to the development helm is Rocksteady Studios, which last worked on Batman: Arkham City. The studio says Arkham Knight's Gotham is five times the size of its last Batman project.

The vehicle defaults to "pursuit mode," allowing Batman to quickly drive through the city. When ready for combat, Batman can unleash "battle mode," turning the wheels sideways and employing a slew of weapons to make it a tool for destruction. Machine guns and missiles pepper tanks easily, while non-lethal riot suppressor rounds can take down enemies on foot.

There's other fun tricks, too, such as vaulting out of the front of the Batmobile at top speed then grappling to a structure, or busting through a window to stun enemies.

The Batmobile also works remotely, as shown when Batman is eventually cornered by a mysterious villain called the Arkham Knight. He has Batman cornered with several gunman, prompting the Dark Knight to use a remote to pick them apart via Batmobile.

Batman has a new range of melee attacks to hold enemies at bay. He can perform Fear Takedowns, allowing him to knock out as many as three enemies in one shot. Environmental takedowns let Batman take advantage of his surroundings, such as swinging on a lamp to take out an attacker.

Batman: Arkham Knight is slated for a 2015 launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
