Harley Quinn is getting her own story mode in Batman: Arkham Knight

2 min read


By now, you’ve heard me wax lyrical on how Batman: Arkham Knight will be one of the best games of 2015, if ever. I’ bias as hell, I’ll admit it but that’s a good thing in my case. You won’t just get to be the Batman in the final Rocksteady game however. You’ll also get a chance to be the main squeeze of the Joker, Harley Quinn.

Thanks to pre-orders for Arkham Knight having been around for a few months already, knowledge of a Harley Quinn bonus haven’t exactly been a secret. Here’s the original pre-order banner, which offered players a chance to step up to bat as the loony shrink in a four-map challenge DLC pack:

That image is soooo 2014. Here’s the new pre-order page picture, which describes the Harleen Quinzell content being augmented with some narrative content instead “the Harley Quinn Story Pack”, that will allow players to “utilize her unique weapons, gadgets and abilities”.

So, a story-mode with Harley Quinn in the lead? I have a feeling that Gavin is going to steal this game away from me. This isn’t the first time that an Arkham game has allowed players to be someone other than the caped crusader. Arkham Asylum allowed you to use the Joker in challenge maps, Arkham City has Catwoman, Robin and Nightwing added to the mix while Arkham Origins had the pre-order bonus of allowing you to go take on a hundred goons as the deadly mercenary Deathstroke.

How the Harley Quinn DLC will work is beyond me, but I’m just hoping that it includes the Harleymobile.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
