Rocksteady Adds Two New Costumes To Batman: Arkham Knight
More than five years after Batman: Arkham Knight originally hit stores, Rocksteady Studios has randomly decided to gift players with two new unlockable suits as a free upgrade. Fans can now play through the game’s story in Bruce Wayne’s Zur-En-Arrh costume or his “Anime Batman” outfit. Check out the studio’s announcement below.

Technically, this isn’t the first time gamers have had the chance to download either of these suits. Fans with a WB Games ID could previously find them on the official Arkham Knight message boards until the company shut down its WBPlay service. But now, the suits are available to everyone with no strings attached. They also mark the first new Arkham Knight DLC since the Earth 2 Dark Knight skin was released in January.
Bruce’s Zur-En-Arrh outfit first appeared in Batman #113 in 1958. It was worn by an alternate Batman living on the planet Zur-En-Arrh, who summoned Bruce to his world to help him fend off an invasion of giant robots. Grant Morrison later resurrected the suit for his own Batman run in 2006. The “Anime Batman” costume is based on the character’s appearance in the “Field Test” segment from Batman: Gotham Knight.
Rocksteady is also currently gearing up for the release of its next DC game, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League. The studio premiered the game’s first trailer during August’s DC FanDome event. Set in the same universe as the Arkham saga, Kill the Justice League lets players control four key members of Task Force X in their efforts to take down the DC Universe’s premiere superhero team. The game will be released for Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X in 2022.
