Like it or not, DLC and announcements of DLC that come prior to a game’s launch are here to stay and Warner Bros. already has a batch lined up for Batman: Arkham City. On November 1, the Nightwing Bundle Pack will be launched for the game and add an entirely new playable character with his own gadgets, moves, and challenge maps. You will be able to play as Nightwing in all of the existing challenge maps included in the game and two additional maps being included in the pack.

In addition to the Nightwing pack, Warner Bros. will also be releasing the previously announced pre-order DLC Robin Bundle Pack on November 22. Both packs will cost $6.99 / 560 Microsoft points.

Batman: Arkham City leads next week’s big list of new releases when it launches on October 18, 2011.
