Many people have long completed the main story in Batman: Arkham City. Today is the day PC gamers have been waiting for. Arkham City is now available for Games for Windows LIVE, Steam®, OnLive, Origin, GameStop via its 'Impulse Driven' download store and other digital platforms. Now PC gamers can join those already playing on Xbox 360 and PlasStation 3.

If you have already played through most of the game, today also marks another reason to pop in back into your system. The Robin Bundle Pack is now available (if you didn't get it through the Best Buy pre-order) on Xbox Live Marketplace for 560 Microsoft Points, PlayStation Network for $6.99, as well as all supported digital platforms.

If you haven't already seen Robin in action, take a look below.

In the Robin Bundle Pack, Robin will come complete with his own unique gadgets and special moves, and will be playable in all challenge maps in the game, as well as two additional challenge maps that are included in the pack - Black Mask Hideout and Freight Train Escape. The pack also contains two alternative Robin character skins (seen in the trailer).

I'm not sure how I feel about paying for something just because I didn't preorder at Best Buy. I dunno, I have a problem with with the DLC tactics on this game... I would like to play as Robin and Nightwing, but I have to pass just on principle.

Release the hate Robin hounds! Really tho All the comments that are coming out about how gay Robin is and how Robin sucks are really annoying. Even more so the people that use the word gay as an attempt to insult Robin. I hope ComicVine does not do this as well.

It is a shame that all those dlc can't be used in the arkham city, i would buy them if they make that but right no they are not worth the price.

Got both Robin and Nightwing...and while a little annoying to play when you've gotten used to having Batman's gadgets from playing City to the end, the different fighting styles are fun and well done.

Aw this is the one game that the DLC for interests me. I only have enough money for one though. Is Nightwing or Robin the better DLC character anyone?

@Lvenger: Nightwing is pretty fun but he doesn't talk. At all.

Robin will be awesome as DLC content. I got Catwoman as DLC content when I bought the game but now I am going to get Robin since it came out. It should be fun to play as him. I am excited.

I'm still a little confused on the DLC. So you can't use Catwoman, Nightwing and Robin in the actual story mode? How long and what are these challenge maps?

I got Robin after buying it from Best Buy, it is pretty awesome and he does give a different feel to the game play when you're playing as Damia--I mean Tim, but the only downside is that he would have been much more fun to play as in the main story, maybe after you beat the game they could have made it where you could play as him. That's my only complaint about it.

Call me crazy, but I really want a playable Huntress DLC character. I might actually prefer Catwoman over Batman as far as combat goes, and I think that the faster-but-more-fragile template would work well with Huntress. And a gorgeous woman flipping around beating up thugs with a staff would be pretty awesome just on principle.

Heck, why not throw us a Black Canary one too? Who wouldn't want to use her scream to knock back a group of thugs?

It's great that it's now available but ... When can we get some actual "New" DLC ?

One of my favorite games - and these 2 DLC's so far were already available if you bought it from the right retailer.

Well, for Catwoman, kinda. Just launch her last 5th episode where you're able to roam free in the city before getting to her actual mission.

Nightwing and Robin...yeah... why didn't they bother putting them available as well? Because Nightwing dioesn't glide? Well, so does Catwoman!! I could imagine getting to the swap points once the story's over, like when you wanna change to Catwoman, and select Nightwing or Robin there..

I've been playing Robin since I got it from Best Buy and I too wish you could play as Robin in the main story after you beat the game. I think it could have been cool since Batman was exhausted the Robin stepped in and helped "clean up" Arkham City even after the initial meet up in the game. But I do think that they have something more in store for this series and the next one could be called Batman: Gotham City. I mean think about it...they release the game and have Robin, Nightwing and Catwoman as DLC each with their own skill set and gadgets. Could it be that they are testing the waters with different characters in the Batuniverse and see how well they translate into a game? It could be that each hero could have a Arkham City sized section of Gotham to patrol in. And after you beat the game you have the opportunity to play each sector as the other character like in the new game+ mode.

I'd be all over this if I could run around Arkham as these characters, but just challenge maps dont interest me much.

@BritishMonkey:

Did someone challenge you or something? Who doesn't know that DLC always comes later?

I'm going to call this right now: In the U.S. within the next year, there will be an election and someone will become the President. Meanwhile, it will be hot in the summer and cold in the winter.

@wowylied:

You meant A. Asylum (batman 1)? These are the DLC for City (Batman 2).
