Early this morning I brought you my thoughts on the first trailer for Arkham Origins DLC Cold, Cold Heart. The trailer was released yesterday and today was followed by a press release from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. So here is the press release and my own thoughts on it.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today unveiled the first details for Cold, Cold Heart; the action-packed story add-on for Batman: Arkham Origins. In this extensive story add-on, players will unearth the tragic origin story of Mr.Freeze and learn how he earned his role as one of Batman’s arch nemeses. Cold, Cold Heart will be available for purchase on the PlayStation®Network, Xbox LIVE online entertainment network from Microsoft and Steam beginning April 22. This add-on pack will be available to players who have purchased the Batman: Arkham Origins Season Pass and are connected to the Internet, or it can be purchased separately for $9.99.
Unfolding across iconic Gotham City locations, including Wayne Manor, Cold, Cold Heart equips players with the powerful Batman Extreme Environment (XE) suit and new gadgets including the Thermal Gloves and Thermocharged Batarangs. The game introduces several hours of all-new content in which players will battle through punishing, icy landscapes to witness Mr. Freeze’s heart-pumping first encounter with the Dark Knight.

I was quite glad to read this press release as the trailer itself reveals very little about the new DLC. It will be quite interesting to see Warner Bros. Games Montreal’s take on Mr. Freeze’s origin story. We all know that Mr. Freeze has quite the tragic back story and I really loved him in Batman: Arkham City. I just hope that Cold, Cold Heart does the character just as well. I’m also really excited to see what new details of Batman’s world we will get to see in this DLC. I gotta say, the more I learn about the DLC the more excited I get about it, regardless of the reported bugs in Origins.
