Batman: Arkham City Robin DLC Hits Xbox.com

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
All Batman fans know who Robin is; he's one of the most famous side-kicks in comic book history. The character was even given his own pre-order bonus DLC - "Robin Bundle Pack" - upon release of Batman: Arkham City (Xbox 360). That DLC has now been released onto the Xbox Marketplace today for everybody to be able to download. The DLC has two achievements worth a total of 50G.

Download the fully playable Robin character. Robin comes complete with his own unique gadgets and special moves, and is playable in all challenge maps in the game, as well as two additional challenge maps that are included with the pack: Black Mask and Freight Train. The Freight Train Escape challenge map is a unique take on Arkham City, featuring brawler gameplay on a 2D plane. The pack also contains two bonus character skins: Red Robin and Animated Robin.Those of you wanting a sneak peek of the DLC before deciding on a purchase may want to check out the Robin gameplay trailer here.

The "Robin Bundle Pack" costs 560 MSP and can be downloaded from here.

The dlc only has 50g, the freight train level could be the best piece of dlc released for the game. Id like more dlc but for god sake no more challenge maps or characters that have to do them!
You want it when?

Little mistake, the two achievements are 50G, not 55G. They are worth 55TA though.

I think TA ratio should be calculated on how many people have the game, not the DLC, yet that would also completely skew ratios, so you can't win.

On that note, the Freight Train mission is brilliant! Nice change of pace from the normal Batman combat challenges (haven't tried Catwoman yet, I'd be a bit distracted :P). Does anyone know if there will be more DLC?

Not worth it for me... The catwoman DLC was awesome because it added to the campaign but the challenge missions have always been a mildly interesting side-note, definitely not worth extra money. Too bad, I like Robin and Nightwing, for that matter.

Been waiting for this one! clap

Looks like the most fun character of them all so far IMO. Starting to get the urge to play again. Was a little burnt out for a while after my initial 1000.
I aim to misbehave!

It would have been great if he was implanted the same way as Catwomen, you know, with short extra missions.
560MS-Points are to much i think.

Completely Wrong...This doesn't make a lick of sense except to inflate your TA ratio of course. I would compare this to saying TA ratio should be calculated on how many people own an xbox not just Batman Ark City.

I enjoy the challenge missions, especially the predator ones. The combat challenges are kind of a no brainer, but the predator and campaign missions take thought and precise execution...they are really "challenging". All characters tackle mostly the same maps, but each in very different ways.

TA ratio for DLC will always be a little low because the site doesn't register you own the DLC until you get an achievement in it. So for games like this, most people get the first achievement and that's what tips off the site that they own it, so it has a 1.0 ratio.

i agree! batman, catwoman, robin.. and now im just finishing the nightwing dlc now.. and im sick of these challenge maps.. NO MORE CHARACTERS, PLEASE!!

i wouldn't mind if it was just the combat missions, i can fly through those, and even the predator maps aint so bad, but then to combine the 2 for the campaigns is horrible... i mean between the 4 characters and the three modes you have to play every map 8 times.. and thats not including all the ones you fail along the way!

the 3 dlc packs took me longer than the 1000g's i got for the actual game.

MORE STORY-RELATED DLC PLEASE..there were a few case's from the story that were filed to the batcave for solving later.. use them smile

I like the idea of being able to play as other characters but I don't really want to play the challenges maps that many times. Between Batman and Catwoman I'm going to have had my fill. I think it would be cool if they added more sidequests for Batman. They haven't done anything with either Scarecrow or Killer Croc. We know they are already in the city so it wouldn't be a stretch by any means.
