As compensation WB are giving owners a load of old Batman Games:

we will be giving away FREE digital copies of games from the Batman: Arkham library. This means we will be giving away copies of Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY, Batman: Arkham City GOTY, Batman: Arkham Origins, and Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate.  The Batman: Arkham library of games will be given to everyone who has already purchased or will purchase Batman: Arkham Knight for PC prior to 11:59 pm PDT, November 16, 2015. We’re actively working with our partners at Valve to make this happen as soon as we can, so watch your Steam Library.  We are aiming to deliver all of the games by December.  

Seeing as our community was a great help in getting the game up and running, Rocksteady will be creating a new “Community Challenge Pack” that will be given free to owners of the Batman: Arkham Knight game in January 2016.  As thanks to the Steam Community, PC players will have access to the maps for a week before they hit the consoles.  Stay tuned for more details on this in the Batman: Arkham Community and Social Channels.

Finally, we are thrilled to announce that we are working with Valve and the Team Fortress 2 team for a special cross-game promotion.  Through November 16, 2015, Valve will be running a contest for the Steam community to create Batman: Arkham themed cosmetic items for Team Fortress 2.  The winning items will be given out to those who purchased Batman: Arkham Knight on Steam before the end of the contest.  You can check out the official TF2 blog[] for all the contest details!
To recap, if you own Batman: Arkham Knight for PC or purchase it before November 16, 2015, you will get:

  • Free digital copies of games from the Batman: Arkham library.
  • The “Community Challenge Pack” DLC.
  • The Batman: Arkham inspired Team Fortress 2 items created by the Batman: Arkham community.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
