Update on Batman: Arkham City Exclusive Skins
In a few weeks, I'll be reviewing Batman: Arkham City. If you've followed the press for the game, you might have seen all the retailer-specific skins that will be available. I, myself, am incredibly partial to the Batman: The Animated Series skin, which is exclusive to GameStop pre-orders. In addition to skins for Batman, Robin will be getting his own variant skins, for use in the combat challenges.
I am pretty opposed to retailer-specific DLC, and I already have Amazon Prime, so I resigned myself to just not getting that Animated Series skin that looks so badass. But while browsing release dates, I came across some good news. According to a Rocksteady representative, all of the skins will eventually become DLC available to everyone, regardless of where they bought Arkham City from. I couldn't have been happier. The less money I have to spend at GameStop, the better.
