Batman: Arkham Origins Season Pass Revealed

Warner Bros. has announced the season pass for Arkham Origins. Retailing for $20, it will give gamers access to five DLC packs: New Millennium skins, Infinite Earths skins, Gotham by Gaslight Batman skin, Brightest Day Batman skin and an add-on called Initiation, which features new challenge maps and a mode allowing gamers to play as Bruce Wayne. An all-new story campaign is also alluded to, but details are unavailable.

Arkham Origins will be released for PC, PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360 on Oct. 20. Since the Wii U won't get the online multiplayer mode, Wii U players will get the game for $49.99, versus $59.99 for the other platforms.

Killzone: Shadow Fall Season Pass Details Revealed

Guerilla Games revealed details of Shadow Fall's $20 season pass. According to the developer, it will give gamers three new map packs, a co-op expansion pack and two multiplayer packs.

The co-op expansion pack allows gamers to join three others online to survive against "waves upon waves of enemies in four new arena maps." Each map pack provides two new arena maps, accessible through the co-op expansion pack. Little has been revealed about the other multiplayer expansion packs, but Guerilla promises "they'll offer many hours of additional multiplayer thrills."

Shadow Fall will hit shelves Nov. 15 for PS4. A release date for the season pass add-ons has not yet been announced. But if you purchase the pass on day one, you will get an exclusive skin and a unique multiplayer spotlight move.

Thief Pre-Order Bonus Announced 

Square Enix announced a bonus for gamers who pre-order Thief. Early birds get access to an exclusive in-game mission called "The Bank Heist," which pays homage to a mission from Thief 2: The Metal Age. The aptly named add-on gives gamers the task of sneaking into The City's most secure location, the Stonemarket First Bank. After making it past the guards who patrol the location at all times, gamers face off against the vault. The goal is to retrieve a rare family heirloom called the Star of Audale, but that may not be all the vault has to offer.

Thief will be released Feb. 25 for Xbox 360, PS3, PC, PS4 and Xbox One. PC gamers also have the option to purchase a special edition dubbed "Master Thief," which includes an official digital artbook, a collection of digital comics, the director's cut soundtrack and an in-game booster pack. Check out the trailer below for the pre-order bonus.
