Epic Games Store rolled out a Batman-themed six-part freebie including three Arkham games and three Lego ones. The Arkham games had all available DLC attached to them, except for Arkham Knight. This seems to have been corrected recently.

Epic Games and Warner Bros. promotion kicked off on several fronts recently. Fortnite got a Batman crossover and Epic Games Store is offering six Batman games for free. Three of those games are Lego Batman games while three are from the fabled Arkham series by Rocksteady.

There was seemingly a slight catch to the Batman Arkham ones though as Arkham Asylum and Arkham City came bundled with all the available DLC but Arkham Knight only contained the base game. EGS users who claimed the Batman bundles found it to be odd but since it was still a great offering but the confusion was there regardless.

Now it appears that Epic Games Store silently added all the Arkham Knight DLC into the bundle, free of charge, and future claimers of the bundle will possibly get the full package from get-go. Players who previously downloaded Arkham Knight and installed it without DLC are reporting a 14GB update that added all the previously unavailable content. 

The complete edition includes:

  • A Matter of Family
  • Harley Quinn Story Pack
  • Red Hood Story Pack
  • GCPD Lockdown
  • Catwoman's Revenge
  • A Flip of a Coin
  • A veritable treasure trove of challenge and cosmetic packs

Epic Games didn't make a big announcement of it and it's currently unclear whether the original intention was to pack all the Arkham Knight DLC into the bundle or if they added it after fan confusion.

Whatever the case may be, this is a situation involving a gift horse that wandered off while you were sleeping and came back with a bunch of additions, free of charge.
