The first LEGO game to get such a system, LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham will indeed have a season’s pass worth of content past launch.
We already knew LEGO Batman 3 was set to be the biggest LEGO DC Comics title, but it just might be the biggest LEGO title in general thanks to a healthy slate of downloadable content hitting post-launch. A total of 6 different content packs will be hitting for the game.
Each pack will include a differently themed story mission and content, as well as offer free-play mode. All combined, the 6 packs will also contain a massive 40 more characters, vehicles, achievements, and ‘more’. The packs sound like they’re being broken up into slates of three from the press release, with the first 3 hitting on November 14th and the rest coming some time later (no date yet).
As you might imagine, the first 3 packs will be available separately, but you can scoop up all 6 as a part of the Season Pass, which will be available on the Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, and PC (no Wii U). If you’re a hardcore DC Comics fanboy, you might as well grab the Pass, since from these descriptions it sounds like you’re going to want all of them.
