Batman: Arkham Knight getting ’89 Batsuit and Batmobile in August

Those who forked out for the Batman: Arkham Knight season pass are getting a pretty awesome drop next month with the release of a new set of skins, including the “1989” pack that will contain the Batsuit and Batmobile designs from Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman.

Considering that film is now over 25 years old, these designs have held up. Look at that Batmobile. That thing is  still as cool today as it was then.


From the press release:

“Battle through the streets of Gotham City with this pack that includes the Batman skin and Batmobile from the 1989 Batman film, as well as two tracks inspired by the film’s sequel.”

The other skin pack contains a range of looks that carry an equal helping of nostalgia for fans.

“Included in this pack are six character skins based on the alternate timelines — 1990s Catwoman, One Year Later Robin, Arkham Origins Batman, Iconic Grey and Black Batman, 1970s Batman and the Original Arkham Nightwing.

Despite the fact that I’m loathe to retire the amazing ’66 Batman skin, I think it might be time. I hold out hope for a Batmobile skin based on the design from Batman: The Animated Series.
