For those who just couldn't get enough of developer Rocksteady's slightly grating, over-sexualized mall goth rendition of Harley Quinn from Batman: Arkham City, does Warner Bros. ever have an announcement for you!

Look, I'll take this Harley over the mail-order Sexy Nurse costume from the first game, but still. Yeesh.

Confirming rumors that popped up when PlayStation 3 trophies for the DLC began to surface, WB confirmed that Harley Quinn's Revenge will be dropping as DLC for owners of the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Arkham City on May 30. The DLC is a two-hour addition to the campaign that features both Batman and Robin as playable characters, as they attempt to shut down yet another insidious plan by the Joker's right-hand lady person and "shut the gates on the urban mega-prison forever."

The announcement of the DLC comes side-by-side with the announcement of a Batman: Arkham City: Game of the Year Edition, which will hit stores in North America on May 29, and the UK September 7. The GOTY edition packs in all of the previous DLC--which included a wide variety of Batman skins, Nightwing and Robin packs, the Catwoman story pack, and a whole bunch of challenge maps--as well as this new Harley Quinn campaign.

While I am not terribly fond of Harley as portrayed by Rocksteady's writers, I am fond enough of Arkham City to put up with a bit more of her in the name of wringing a couple of extra hours of thug beating out of the game. Here's hoping someone over there did a find-and-replace on the Harley Quinn's Revenge script looking for the word "bitch," and then proceeded to make liberal use of the delete button. By the time I finished the original campaign, it was as if the word had lost all meaning.

Awesome the wait would be worth it if they include all this content

It's coming out april 30th, not may 30th.

Posted by Alex

@LarryDavis: Nope, WB clarified that. The April 30th date was the mistake.

Posted by RetroVirus

I enjoyed Harley's description as "right-hand lady person." So eloquent.

Posted by mewstu

Isn't the DLC coming out April 30?

I like her styling. She is a bad girl, after all.

Oh man the duders at arkhamcity.co must be flipping their shit!

Posted by Pop

Oh man I thought you get to play as Harley but ok this is fine too

Posted by csl316

Rocksteady's writers? You mean Paul Dini, who wrote AC and was one of Harley's creators?

So, what's worse? "Bitch" or "SPICE M'RINE!!"?

Dig Deeper into Harley Quinn

Don't mind if I do.

Posted by laserbolts

Alex stop being such a bitch.

Posted by GunstarRed

I hope that once you've finished the dlc they let you run around the world as Robin, like Catwoman. Pretty excited about this.

Whart? SPAYCE MAREENS

I really did not dig the Fetish Wear/Emo/Goth look they gave her in the "Arkham" games. I like better the twisted menacing harlequin look.

Edited by kennybaese

It'll be interesting to see if this provides some proper set up for a sequel.

I kind of thought that the next game could pretty easily be all of Gotham in chaos as Harley rampages through the city after the Joker's death and other characters introduced in the side missions (like Hush and Azrael) playing a role in that story.

But that's just me.

No word on PC?

Thanks for justifying my decision not to buy this by releasing a Game of the Year edition just 7 months after release with all the pre-order costumes and dlc included. I'm sure come Black Friday this will be down to $20 or less. It seems pointless buying dlc heavy games anywhere near the release date when you can get the "complete" game within a year for significantly less.

Posted by animathias

@kennyshat: I've finished the game, so it doesn't bother me, but you might want to cover up that spoiler.

In any case, I thought the same thing, so I'm interested to see the story itself of this pack.

 @mordukai: i gotta agree with this one in the games she just looks like a cliche bad girl with white make up 
 
also i'm getting tired of alexs article writing is always some weird attempt at comedy  i prefers patricks neutral take on the articles

Posted by Undeadpool

After that credit sequence, I'm actually REALLY intrigued by what this is going to be.

Um... what? Why the massive discrepancy in the release dates? Seriously? It's just begging to be pirated (assuming they release it on PC) with a delay like that. This is the digital age. There are no borders on the fucking internet. Why can't these people get that through their thick skulls?
 
But given that it's Rocksteady they probably won't release it on PC or it'll be borderline unplayable shit that requires patches to fix like Arkham City was. So I don't know why my panties are in a knot. He'll I don't even like in the UK so double what the fuck.

Its not a surprise they forgot about us pc users

Alex, stop bitching about Harley Quinn.

Her character design is fine but the character itself is annoying.. and I think that's unchanged from the original Harley Quinn. You had to know they know it, too, in that bit where you can remove the duct tape on her mouth, then put it back on.

Posted by mordukai

@darkvare: I just wonder why they went that way. Everything else in the Arkham game, design wise, is spot on for the universe they created. Harley Quinn's design just feel out of place. She just looks like Hot Topic puked all over her.

So, worst box art ever. Or WORST box art EVER?

@Alex Not enough words on there.

I actually kind of dig it, I'm reminded of magazine covers. However, artistically, its not too pleasing. Not every cover can be Rage or JPN Ico.

That look got old. They even deleted that look in the comics.

Dios mio! That is atrocious!

@Alex: I love that quote BEST GAME EVER PERIOD DONE! ...but yeah it looks really crappy

Posted by MeatSim

Yea that box art is pretty bad.

Posted by WalkerD

So I enjoyed this game and all, but did someone really give it game of the year?

Yeah you're right. Her new look makes me wonder why she's carrying a hammer when a pole would work better for her. I am not freaked out or feel sorry for her but now I feel that I need a stack of 50's.

If that's the look that you dig then more power to you bro. I for one do not like it. Not one bit.

To me it looks like some game called "Game Of The Year Edition: 10 out of 10" With Batman Arkham City bonus content.

Cant say I'm interested in this.
