Getting all of the Retail Exclusive DLC for Batman: Arkham Knight *hint* It’ll Cost You.

GameStop announced sometime last year that it would offer exclusive pre-order DLC for Batman: Arkham Knight in the form of the Red Hood Story Pack, which will let players become a more murderous vigilante in the game. But Warner said that the “exclusive” is actually timed, and that everyone who owns either the Premium Edition or the Season Pass will eventually get all the retailer-specific DLC, regardless of where they bought it.

Retail-Exclusive content is nothing new, and GameStop definitely isn’t the only one doing it: Walmart is offering a “prototype Batmobile” with pre-orders, Best Buy has a “WayneTech Booster Pack,” and Steam has a “Gotham’s Future Skin Pack.” But it’s still infuriating, especially since it’s so fundamentally ridiculous: Its not as if there’s extra packaging or something physical to go home with. At least Warner has ensured that everyone will eventually have access to all of it. It’s not as good as eliminating the practice altogether, but it’s a step in the right direction.

Here’s a little gameplay for Batman: Arkham Knight
