Developer of Batman: Arkham Origins Responds To Complaints Over Season Pass
Posted by Joseph Lee on 10.02.2013
IGN reports that Batman: Arkham Origins producer Guillaume Voghel has responded to complaints that the Season Pass for the game will be mostly made of things like costumes instead of extra levels or content.
He said: "The costume DLC is going to be available with the Season Pass and it's basically a bonus right? There's going to be a lot of value in that Season Pass. One of the items we can't talk about yet…we'll just wait for the gamers to really see what the entire package contains. It's going to be a big deal."
He also commented on the future of the franchise, but wouldn't elaborate if Warner Bros. Games Montreal would make the next game or if Rocksteady would return. He also said that the games would be kept separate from the movies.
When asked if he would want to make a Superman vs Batman game, he added: "The Arkham brand is really independent from the movies and that's something I think is at the core of its success; Rocksteady did that really well. They isolated the game from the movies and the Arkham brand will keep going in that direction if there are other entries down the line. It's really something independent; it's in a world of its own and it's a franchise we want to focus on only through video games. DC studios has a lot to say in how we develop the Arkham franchise and they have great input. It's always going to be a collaboration between Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment and DC, but we really want to keep it independent from the movies."
The game will be released on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PC on October 25.
