Batman: Arkham Knight and new Arkham Origins Story DLC Officially Announced

Batman gets a new game and DLC.

After months of silence following an accidental slip by Kevin Conroy, the iconic voice of Batman since the Emmy-winning animated series of the '90s, Batman: Arkham Knight has officially been announced through both promotional art featuring the Batmobile and a CGI trailer.

The trailer depicts Thomas Wayne, Batman's late father, narrating his will as Batman attempts to stop Two-Face. Arkham Knight is the third Batman: Arkham game from Rocksteady. The game will release in 2014 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, and players can pre-order to play as Harley Quinn.

Announced just a few days before was the next piece of DLC for Batman: Arkham Origins, entitled Cold, Cold Heart. Cold Heart tells the tale of Mr. Freeze's backstory, with the story seeming to take a page from Batman: The Animated Series in depicting him as a tragic figure, rather than a villain who just makes bad ice puns. Cold, Cold Heart releases on April 22, 2014.
