Well, can’t say I saw that coming.
Next year we will be returning to the iconic setting of Gotham City with the upcoming Gotham Knights. That game will feature a cast of Batman characters after Bruce Wayne has seemingly been killed in action as they must fight to clean up the chaos in the aftermath. The game is not by Rocksteady Studios, being developed instead by WB Montreal, and is not in the same canon as the popular Arkham series. Despite that, it seems out of nowhere, the last game in the franchise got a quick update.
Rocksteady decided to update Arkham Knight today to give everyone free access to two skins: the Zur En Arrh and Anime Batman. These are not new skins and were originally given out as part of the WBPlay service that was once attached to the game. That service is long defunct, meaning anyone who got the game recently in a sale or via Game Pass or however would have no way to access either of these until this update. It’s random, but hey, it’s now out there if you want it.
Batman: Arkham Knight released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC back in 2015. Rocksteady themselves is currently working on Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which is slated to come out to PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC in 2022.
You asked, and we couldn’t help but answer with a little gift just in time for the holiday season. From today, all Batman: Arkham Knight players can access the Zur En Arrh and Anime Batman skins via a free update. pic.twitter.com/6zdKt2ouWC
