Batman: Arkham Origins – Cold, Cold Heart story add-on now live

The long-awaited story add-on for Batman: Arkham Origins has finally hit digital stores from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.  Cold, Cold Heart is the action-packed DLC set during New Year’s Eve in Gotham City and sheds light on the tragic origin story of Mr. Freeze.  Players will discover how Freeze earned his place as one of Gotham City’s greatest villains.  It is available on the PSN, Xbox Live Games Store and STEAM for $9.99.  Players who have purchased the Batman: Arkham Origins Season Pass can of course download it at no additional charge.

New locations including Wayne Manor and GothCorp will be introduced in the Cold, Cold Heart Story Add-On.  It will take players on an ice-cold journey as Victor Fries encounters Batman for the first time.  To prepare players for the new challenges that await Batman, access has been granted to all new gadgets including Thermocharged Batarangs and Thermal Gloves.  In typical Batman fashion, not wanting to be caught off guard and under gunned, Batman will be equipped with his powerful Extreme Environment (XE) suit to take down Mr. Freeze and his Cryo-thugs in hours of new story content.

Set several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, Batman: Arkham Origins, developed by WB Games Montréal, is based on DC Comics’ core Batman license and introduces an original prequel storyline.   Taking place before the rise of Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals, the game features an expanded Gotham City and showcases a young and unrefined Batman as he faces a defining moment in his early career as a crime fighter that sets his path to becoming the Dark Knight.

Available now for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and Windows PC, Batman: Arkham Origins is the latest installment in the blockbuster Batman: Arkham video game franchise.

If this isn’t enough content to keep you occupied for a while and you haven’t already picked them up, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is also available for the PlayStation Vita and the Nintendo 3DS.  In addition, the HD version, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate – Deluxe Edition, is now available for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC.
