Rocksteady confirmed that all the preorder costumes are early access and they will be available as DLC down the line. So nobody go pay $120 on eBay or something nonsensical like that.

As long as it's not something ridiculously expensive, I'm sold.

If the TAS costume changed all heroes and villains into their TAS equivalent, I would buy that.

Sounds like great news to me

I couldn't possibly see myself or anyone paying anything like that for alternate costumes, but then again I said that about Mortal Kobmat. lol
 
I bet you, still someone will drop a lot of cash for the early access regardless.

I wish they were unlocks instead.

If it's all of them for like $5, then I'll probably do it. That TAS and Dark Knight Returns one's are awesome.

So much for my plan of selling pre-order codes on ebay to cover the cost of the game :-D
 
I'm glad they're doing this, pre-order bonuses are bullshit and should be nothing more than early release freebies.

Cool. Wonder if they're including TDKR in that considering it's part of the CE and not a preorder bonus.

thats fine as long as they bring out more single player DLC later on down the line, the challenge rooms for Arkham asylum where a decent distraction but i felt at the time that the fact that the whole game was based in the asylum made an expansion type DLC rather difficult to fit in and im hoping Arkham city will remedy this and be able to add side stories and additional content into the main game.

WOW
 
That Dark Knight Returns and Batman Beyond suits are fantastic.
 
Where do I go for those?

The Dark Knight Returns skin is exclusive to the Collector's Edition of the game. Not sure where the Beyond skin is from.

The articlesays it's from UK Gamestop.
 
Whatever, collector's edition it is. Guess that means I'm playing it on the PS3 or 360...not like I was too keen on putting Games for Windows Live on my machine anyway.

Fucking dope. I'll totally buy two or three.
 
 
This is how all preorder bonuses should be treated.

Uhh... is one of those an obese Batman?

I love me some horse armor.

I assume you mean the Dark Knight Returns one.  That's not fat, that's muscle! 
 
I hope they do the same thing for Catwoman so I can mix and match accordingly.

Awesome. TAS is Definitely a buy for me. But I would like to get all of them. 
 
The one thing I do want to know and NEED to know now is that; can this be played or Single Player mode or only for the Challenges?

#19 Posted by blackblade500 (172 posts) -

That Batman Beyond costume is awesome, I wonder if they ever thought of making a Beyond game?

#20 Posted by UnbreakableVow (51 posts) -

I love all the costumes and will be purchasing them all, with the exception of the Batman Beyond costume
 
Bruce Wayne is just a bit too bulky for it and it doesn't look quite right. Still, it's the thought that counts! Nice job, Rocksteady.

Dude, that Batman is arguably one of the most badass versions of Batman ever.

I honestly never even considered that this time. Think I'll pick up a second copy from Gamestop so I can sell the Beyond costume.

I'm kind of surprised there are no Burton/Nolan costumes.

#24 Posted by Gamer_152 (14284 posts) -

I don't think I'll be buying any of them, but this is kinda cool and it's nice to see they're not keeping this stuff pre-order only. Like PenguinDust said it'd also be good to see them put out some alternate Catwoman costumes. Also the Dark Knight Returns Batman totally looks like fat Batman.

That is good news. Thanks dude

@UnbreakableVow: Well he actually DID wear the costume in the first epsiode of Batman Beyond....although it did look a bit odd on him.
