You know what? Sometimes it pays to stop and smell the roses…even if there don't appear to be any roses in the vicinity.
There's no doubt that Batman: Arkham Asylum is a fantastic game, and as soon as we began to play, we didn't have any real desire to sit at the menu screen and stare. I mean, we're not lunatics. But as it turns out – and this is a story you'll see floating around the Internet, informing all the impatient gamers about the missed update – there's an important message that pops up in just a few seconds. There's a news ticker at the bottom of the screen, and that's where it says the game will receive some free downloadable content in less than 9 days time (right on September 17, apparently). We haven't the slightest idea what will be included in this DLC, but for now, it's just enough to know it's coming. This is a game that could definitely benefit from new content, simply because it's always an absolute blast to play; nobody is gonna wind up bored. PS3 owners can already nab the free DLC on the Store that lets them toy around with the agile Joker, but we assume this fresh batch will be available for both the PS3 and 360 versions. Time to play fair.
So keep an eye out next week for some additions that will make Arkham Asylum that much more appealing.
