Official: Robin in Batman: Arkham City

The rumors, they are true; WB has formally announced Robin as a playable character in Batman: Arkham City.

He won’t be appearing in the story mode like Bats or Catwoman though. Instead, players will be able to complete levels in the challenge modes with gadgets and moves unique to the Boy Wonder.

For now, the character be available with North American Best Buy pre-orders only (all platforms), as part of the ‘Tim Drake Robin pack’. The announcement doesn’t specifically state it, but chances are the pack — which also offers two additional challenge maps (Black Mask Hideout and Freight Train Escape) and a Red Robin skin — will become available as DLC for all later on.
