According to, here are some interesting tidbits on the game:

- Bane can now team up with Batman for a series of sub-missions that involve tracking down shipments of chemical contraband.

-New gadget editions, including the Remote Electrical Charge (REC) (shown in image below) that is a shotgun variant that shoots an instant spark to knock enemies back, or electrocute armor-wearing baddies. Enemies with machine guns will have their clips emptied into the crowd when shot with the REC. The gun can also charge up some machines and help transform metal scraps into magnets.

- 4 hours worth of Catwoman gameplay.

- Main path storyline in Arkham City is bigger than Arkham Asylum.

- You can fail a side-quest and still return to it later if you decide that you need and have gained better items/weapons.

But there's more!

According to, there is a pleasant surprise for U.K. buyers of Batman: Arkham City who pre-order Batman: Arkham City from the European Gamestop online store will get a free Batman Beyond skin (shown below)!

Loving how many villains are in this one game - just want to hear about scarecrow, mad hatter, ra's al ghul and ventriloquist/scarface now and it'll be perfect...

I feel like all of it will be DLC shortly after the game is released. I'll make sure to stock up on microsoft points.
