Pre-Order Arkham City, Nab The Tim Drake Robin Pack

Batman had a sidekick, you know.

Warner Bros. has announced that they have teamed up with Best Buy to offer gamers a very cool pre-order incentive for the upcoming Batman: Arkham City: Robin will be a playable character in the game's Challenge Mode.

This comes as part of the Tim Drake Robin pack, which is available to anybody who drops their deposit on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 or PC versions. The pack also adds new gadgets, special moves, and a couple extra maps (Black Mask Hideout and Freight Train Escape). As for Robin, he'll play a little different than the Caped Crusader; he'll have his own set of skills, and he'll be all stylin' in his "Red Robin" skin. We have no doubt Rocksteady will deliver yet another Game of the Year contender so why not pre-order? Like, now?

Okay, so Robin is often seen as being a little lame. But where would Batman be without his faithful sidekick?

Not really my thing at the moment, but then I never liked Robin. Except he was passable in Teen Titans.

I have no doubt I'll end up with this game, but Amazon will be who I order through. Although having Robin in the game would make it feel more like the Batman I watched as a kid, he doesn't contribute to the main story and thereby won't be missed by me.

EA's deal with Dice, whether true or not, has made me take a hard look at pre-order incentives and I've had a change of heart concerning the matter.

I'm giving my money to the one that I feel the most comfortable doing business with and Amazon wins hands down.

Very cool. I don't see buying this at BB, but it's still a great incentive. I'm kinda holding out for the $40 deal I got on the first one.

I had almost forgotten about that deal. I doubt I'll see one that good again on day1 for a long time, especially on Arkham city which now has even more hype to power sales.

I saw some mock-up pictures he looks cooler than he does in the actual comics.

I still wish it was Nightwing (Dick Grayson) instead of Robin (Tim Drake), but it's cool.

I too would also prefer to see Nightwing instead of Robin.

confirmed no Batmobile levels. And I can't wait to play as Tim Drake, he was the best Robin after Grayson.
