Starting the day the game comes out, there will be not one, not two, but three different DLC packs to buy and download to expand your LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham experience. Unlike previous DLC packs that only included new characters, though, this one will have characters (over 40 in total) and unique missions.
Players can of course purchase just the DLC they want at $2.99 a pack, but if they want to pre-purchase the three packs available at launch on November 11, 2014, and the three packs that will come “at a later date,” they can get one for free with the $14.99 Season Pass if you’re playing on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
The packs available on November 11 include two movie-themed groups of characters and missions, and one celebrating a specific character (hint: his name is in the title of the game)’s anniversary.
The Dark Knight Pack features the chase scene from the titular movie, with players taking control of the Dark Knight costumed Batman and Commissioner Gordon in the mission. You’ll also get Joker, his goons, Bane, and Catwoman (the latter two from the third film, of course) as playable characters with this DLC.
The Man of Steel Pack puts you in control of Jor-El and Lara, as well as the robot Kelex as Krypton collapses around you. Your fight is against Zod and his forces while trying to send Kal-El towards “the safety of Earth.”
Finally, the Batman 75th Pack includes Joker and Harley Quinn as they “set up a variety of celebration set pieces.” You’ll get several Batman costumes from throughout the years, including the original Detective Comics #27 first appearance Batman costume.
No news on the additional three DLC packs, other than that they’ll include more playable characters, vehicles, and levels.
LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham hits all the above platforms, plus PS Vita, Wii U, 3DS (but no season pass available for those platforms) on November 11, 2014.
