That Possible Assassin’s Creed Comet Reveal Was Actually For Batman Arkham Knight DLC

RedHoodArkhamKnight

Yesterday we reported that GameStop were planning to reveal something special and they posted an image to accompany the news which looked suspiciously like an Assassin’s Creed protagonist. This led many to believe that Ubisoft were going to reveal the rumoured Assassin’s Creed Comet for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and possibly Wii U. Well it turns out the big surprise was DLC for Batman Arkham Knight for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The DLC contains playable character Red Hood and is a GameStop exclusive.

    1. That’s exactly what I did when I read this information, I yawned.

      GameStop is a waste of retail space.

      1. Why does Arkham Knight look the same as Origins? I thought it was supposed to be “next gen”?

      2. The only thing “next-gen” this generation is the idiotic use of the words “next-gen” that these -graphicwhores- as they are called are so brainwashed by…

      3. So fucking true. Xbox One is the same shit as the 360 but with no games and brighter graphics.

        PS3 has no games, though their control is a different approach on games. Sadly, they took the ideas of the 3DS to make the Vita, and use the Vita to make their control. Still no games on there end.

        I give Nintendo a lot because they take a lot of risk with new game styles. And granted, they have made very poor use of their Game Pad, finally, games will be used with it and make the system sell on what consoles should sell on: Good games and Game Play. Fuck graphics.

      4. I hope you meant PS4 has no games. Because you have to be bulshitting yourself if you think PS3 has no games.

      5. It doesn’t look like Origins at all. After getting a good 15 minutes of gameplay at E3 in a closed room, I was really impressed with the game.

        I skipped Origins because I was getting tired of the series. Asylum and City were enough for me. I watched a few friends play Origins, but it was very lackluster to me and I had no interest in playing it.

        With that said, Arkham Knight looks so much better. They truly are upping the ante with this new game. New gameplay elements, beautiful and intricate character and environmental designs, etc. The game looks great. I can’t wait until it comes out. It should be a fitting end for the series.

      6. Shouldn’t say “at all.” Of course it looks similar to Origins, it’s a Batman game. But the series has evolved with this newest entry.

      1. I couldn’t care less about what reputation I have or anyone else, it’s a primitive irrelevant issue that has zero meaning for me…

  1. Obviously! Why would Gamestop reveal a new game update rather than DLC? That is supposed to be Ubisoft’s job to reveal AC Comet.

    1. I think you have played Sweet Sweet Canyon a little too much in MK8 comrade…

  2. Well that’s stupid…. DLC is usually common place so hiding it was kind of pointless.

    1. Wasn’t his fault, I think everyone thought this was a new Assassin’s Creed game.

  3. yep another game sickr will buy for his xbox one.

    1. How do you know he’ll buy it for the Xbox One? He’ll most likely buy it on PS4 or PC.

    2. And where’s your Xbox?

      Oh yeah, that’s right, buying games for a system you don’t have than the system itself.

      1. Indeed. Also, I heard he blank/deleted his ED article when it was backed up.

      2. DAMN, i wanted to read it!!! oh, BTW i read that in few days Estoc Zero
        will upload tsasori’s new ED article.

  4. So instead of being a game not coming to Wii U, its another game not coming to Wii U. Ok….thanks for the info.

    1. Yeah and it’s going to happen a lot more. This wouldn’t happen if there were only articles on confirmed information instead of speculation on what it could be. But hey, that’s myNINTENDOnews for ya.

  5. Said it was DLC crap.
    I just do not understand how GameStop is still in business… people retarded or something?

    1. Because Rocksteady is great at making games and made two of the best superhero games ever (Arkham Asylum and City) that’s why.

  6. Don’t really care about either game really, but I’m pretty certain Gamestop did this on purpose to troll everyone.

  7. The game’s not coming out for at least six months, yet they’re already advertising DLC? Good grief…

    1. Exactly what I’m thinking. But as long as it’s free DLC, I don’t think a lot of people will get upset over this. I wouldn’t really get upset either. Now if I just read the title & nothing else, I would be a lot more angry & saying something along the lines of “This game isn’t nowhere near release & they already got DLC planned for it!? Fuck you, guys! Instead of finely tuning the game to make it bugless, you fuckers decided to spend time on extra content that should be ON the game disc itself for free as unlockables, not bullshit DLC.” Luckily, this isn’t the case so they dodged a bullet.

      1. It isn’t coming to Wii U so we wouldn’t have to worry about it either way.

  8. I didn’t realize it was possible to troll yourself on your own website, but here we are.

  9. I’ll definitely be getting it whenever I get another platform. I want to try out some of these games.

  10. well that’s very interesting. The game is not even out and they are already planning the release of DLC . This is why I hate PS3 and Xbox for that, they should ban this kind of practice but yeah there are a large amount of idiot whose going to buy it. The DLC business is getting worse and worse and they are still people being brainless and still buying them.

    1. That’s why they keep doing it, because so many people buy it. But at least this is free DLC that you get from pre-ordering and pre-orders are important to publishers and in turn the devs.

      1. I don’t know if they are free but for the people who own a PS3/4 or Xbox360/1, I hope there is not achievement attached to this DLC as it was the case with catwoman and robin DLC in batman arkham city on PS3

      2. Ugh. “So you’re a completionist, eh? Well if you want to 100% complete this game, you’re going to have to buy this DLC! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!” Kill it! Kill it now!

      3. If I can complete the 100% without wasting my time i will do it but like that one I won’t, there is not way in the world I going to buy a DLC to complete a game. It’s morally so wrong and encourage this kind of practice. Instead I hacked the PC version of this game and completed it :-). BTW there are a lot of games I haven’t completed and I will never complete them.

      4. I’m a completionist but I’m not going to buy DLC just to complete a game 100% either. Now if the DLC is good & worth buying, then I’ll make an exception. Otherwise, I’ll just play it to experience the whole story then ditch it asap.

    2. What Simply G said. As long as there is more idiots than smart people out there, they will continue to do crap like this.

  11. I hate DLC. I just wanna play the game, fuck all that extra dlc forgetable bullshit, like the harly quinn dlc from arkham city. Had a bug that wouldnt let you 100% the game. Starting this year I refuse to pre-order a game Just for dlc. In Fact, I may just stick with Nintendo games…thats how bad I hate dlc.

  12. I actually liked the Batman series. And I do hope it comes out later as an Armored Edition or something.
