Warner Bros. has revealed details around the downloadable content (DLC) for the latest in its long line of LEGO games. LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham will receive six DLC packs, and in a first for the series, a Season Pass will be available to include all DLC. Unfortunately, that option seems to be skipping the Wii U and 3DS (and PS Vita for those counting).

The game is being released on a myriad of platforms on November 11 in the US and November 14 in Europe. Interestingly, the first three DLC packs will be available from launch, begging the question – why not include them with the game to start with?

Here are the details of the first three packs:

  1. The Dark Knight Pack: Adds a mission based on Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises movie, with characters like Commissioner Gordon, Harvey Dent, Bane, and Catwoman.
  2. Man of Steel Pack: Adds a mission that sees you helping Jor-El, Lara, and their robot Kelex send the infant Superman to Earth, while General Zod and his forces attack.
  3. Batman 75th Pack: Allows you to play as the Joker and Harley Quinn through a variety of set pieces. It also allows you to play as different versions of Batman, including one based on his first appearance in Detective Comics #27.

Details about the remaining three DLC packs are yet to be revealed. The Season Pass will cost you $15 (on those other systems), while the individual packs will cost $3 each. Whilst there is definitely no season pass option for Nintendo’s systems, it’s unclear at this time whether the individual DLC packs will be available for the Wii U and 3DS – we’ll keep you updated once that information is made available.
