Update: GameStop has now confirmed that the Red Hood Story Pack will be exclusively available by pre-ordering at the retailer.
“Pre-order now to play as Red Hood. Play as the ruthless vigilante in the GameStop exclusive Red Hood story pack,” a message on the retailer’s website reads.
Original Story: It appears that Batman: Arkham Knight will be getting a pre-order story pack DLC featuring the vigilante known as Red Hood, according to leaked GameStop promotional materials.
The above image, discovered by Batman News, shows the previously announced Harley Quinn pre-order DLC alongside a second pack called the “Red Hood Story Pack” that will allow players to “play as the ruthless vigilante.” The image also notes that the DLC is exclusive to GameStop.
Yesterday, the retailer tweeted a blurry image that appears to match the one above along with the message: “Big announcement for a big game tomorrow…”
Red Hood was the original alias of The Joker before he dove into a vat of chemicals to escape Batman, leading to his more well known white face and green hair. Following this, Jason Todd, a former Robin that was killed by The Joker, became the new Red Hood after being resurrected. He tortured The Joker and then assumed control of Gotham City’s gangs to wage a war on Black Mask’s criminal empire.
Batman: Arkham Knight is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and will be available in 2015.
