Rocksteady Studios closed out its year for Batman Arkham Knight with a new, long-form story DLC. Season of Infamy offers some new dimension and story to the game with the addition of several new side quests. Each side quests pits Batman against several other members of his Rogues Gallery who were not prominently featured, or were only referenced, in the main game. Batman Arkham Knight is a good game, and in some ways it’s great. However, it failed to reach the previous heights of Batman Arkham Asylum and Batman Arkham City. The story is bit of a misfire in certain areas. Besides that, the addition of the Batmobile became an overused gimmick for the overall game. Season of Infamy does not offer a massive amount of new content, but it does offer some tight and well executed story elements that will, more than likely, satisfy long-time fans of the franchise and fans of the Batman comic books.
Rocksteady Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive have released a new edition of Batman Arkham Insider. The new video features the first look at the game’s major expansion, Season of Infamy. There’s also a look at the Dark Knight Batman skin. You can check out the new Arkham Insider video in the player below.

Batman: Arkham Knight, the long-awaited conclusion of Rocksteady Studios‘ Batman: Arkham game trilogy, has finally arrived. When Batman: Arkham Asylum first arrived on the scene in 2009, the experience was a revelation for both video gamers and comic book enthusiasts. Although there were some good video games based on the DC Comics hero in the past, Batman’s history was marred by some awful games. Batman: Arkham Asylum was the first really modern or 3D video game that truly captured the feeling of becoming Batman. With amazing controls, combat and stealth gameplay, Rocksteady literally empowered players to encompass aspects of Batman that had never been realized before in electronic entertainment.
