Batman: Arkham Origins will soon receive a second piece of story-driven DLC, and the smart money’s on the appearance of Mr Freeze.
A new post on the Batman: Arkham Facebook page promises all-new story DLC coming in 2014.
The note was accompanied by a piece of concept art showing a Wayne Foundation Humanitarian of the Year trophy surrounded by odd-looking icicles; Batman fans will almost certainly be drawing Mr Freeze-shaped conclusions from that.
Although I hope this is not the case, some of you probably know Mr Freeze best from his depiction in the poorly-received 1997 film Batman & Robin, where he was portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Unsurprisingly, it was the last Batman film in that particular series, so was in some way responsible for the excellent Christopher Nolan trilogy.
Warner Bros. revealed the upcoming DLC on New Year’s, having teased the announcement a few days earlier by inviting fans to attend the Wayne Foundation’s Humanitarian Awards.
Batman: Arkham Origins is available on PC, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Xbox 360; to date, little of its DSLC has been made available to Wii U owners.
