First look at playable Robin from Batman: Arkham City

Tim Drake Robin render from "Batman: Arkham City"

Following leaks on retail websites, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have finally confirmed that Robin will be a fully playable character in the challenge mode of Batman: Arkham City, the hotly anticipated follow-up to the acclaimed 2009 video game Arkham Asylum.

However, the “Tim Drake Robin pack” — yes, it’s Tim Drake, not Dick Grayson — is available only to those in North America who pre-order the game from Best Buy. So, sorry, fans of Dick Grayson, Damian Wayne and … anyone outside of North America.

Batman: Arkham City is set inside the newly constructed fortified walls that have transformed part of Gotham’s slums into a sprawling maximum-security prison for the city’s gangsters, thugs and criminally insane. Robin, who comes with his own gadgets and special moves, will be playable in all challenge maps, as well as to additional maps included with the pack — Black Mask Hideout and Freight Train Escape. There’s also a bonus Red Robin character skin.

Developed by Rocksteady Studios, Batman: Arkham City will debut in October.

From what I understand, Tim Drake package will eventually be available to everyone.

The people who preorder it at Best Buy will be able to access it earlier.

That’s a horribly Schumacheresque mask.

I’m with Rich. And, since Eminem did dress as Robin in the video for “Without Me,” oddly appropriate.

Take away the R on his chest and I would never have guessed that was Robin.

Loves it! But it would of been really hot to see him in his short shorts! The shaved head reminds me of Chris O’donnell – but he looks more butch! haha… :)

this would have been a good costume if this was exact as a skin…

id rather this over the batman wannabe one.
that skin is horrible..

this one wld have done fine.

i mean the white.
