Batman: Arkham Asylum received some post-launch DLC in the form of additional arenas for its challenge mode, but no single-player-focused expansions. The bonus combat-centric content was welcomed by fans (thanks in part to Rocksteady having nailed hand-to-hand fighting), but things be changing for Arkham City, which is branching out into open-world territory?
Kevin Conroy, voice of Batman himself in the titles, spoke to Comic Booked this week and briefly made mention of “future episodes” for the game.
“[Arkham City is] going to be an ongoing game,” he said. “You’re going to be able to download future episodes of it, so it’s going to be going on for quite a while. I’ve been recording it for a while. So that will continue.“
Conroy’s wording doesn’t explicitly give away if we’re looking at more campaign missions (Arkham City is quite the large location, you know, so surely there could be new things to do), further challenge maps (Robin is playable in these, remember), or something else. Warner Bros. has yet to officially confirm any plans for the sequel after its October launch.
We’ve also got official looks at two more Arkham City characters this week, care of GameSpot and Entertainment Weekly. First up is Oswald Cobblepott, aka: The Penguin, who’s the focus of the below trailer. And as rumored before, Talia al Ghul is making her way into the fray, to be voiced by Stana Katic — who leaked her involvement in the sequel in April of 2010.
