In a post via the game’s Facebook page, the developer has outlined some of the key content the season pass will offer. Chief among them is the ability to play as Batgirl for the first time.
While Warner Bros were keen to point out they haven’t revealed everything in the season pass, look below to see what’s in store so far.

I have to say I really like the look of Batgirl. They have a done a great job rendering her and I look forward to seeing her in action. The season pass price tag is steep, and Warner Bros will need to load it up with quality content to entice gamers to buy early and not just wait for a game of the year edition or discounted price. This is a step in the right direction.
