Some details about the upcoming piece of Batman: Arkham Knight DLC Batgirl: A Family Matter have just been released, including information on the content’s setting and Batgirl’s abilities.
Talking with Entertainment Weekly, WB Games Montreal Design Producer Justin Vazquez explained that the DLC will take place in a large, ocean-themed park called Seagate Amusement Park — an area that the Joker has filled with traps.
We wanted to recreate the feeling of being trapped in a bizarre and unique open environment playing a game of cat and mouse with the Joker.
Vazquez also mentioned that while Batgirl won’t be as physically powerful as Batman, she will be able to hack into things, allowing her to solve unique puzzles and even take down bad guys.
Hacking is really what separates her from the other characters. It’s a gameplay mechanic with which the player can create situations for Batgirl to really shine. Our intention was that Batgirl should be less powerful than Batman, but that Batgirl plus hacking could give her opportunities do things that not even Batman can pull off.
Batgirl: A Family Matter will release for free for Season Pass owners on July 14, and will be available on July 21 at the price of $6.99 for everyone else.
