Ready to take Batman: Arkham Origins to another level? Now you can, with the new Batman: Arkham Origins DLC titled Initiation.

You can get back in the game as the Caped Crusader and play as Batman with the new four challenge maps, narrative on the DLC and story thus far, as well as two more skins.

Eurogamer reports that the two skins are Initiation Bruce Wayne and Vigilante Bruce Wayne. Batman: Arkham Origins Initiation DLC is also the promised Season Pass narrative DLC that traces Batman's roots as he masters the way of the ninja.

This is a Batman: Arkham Origins DLC on top of the three others that have sprung out on the last week of November, particularly the Infinite Earths Skins pack, the Batman: Arkham Origins Online Supply Drop #1, and the Black Mask Challenge Pack.

The report also adds that the Batman: Arkham Origins will be focusing on the relationships within the game. There have been previous reports that Alfred may get more screen time as the adviser to Bruce Wayne.

Batman: Arkham Origins Initiation is available for £5.49 for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC.

Battlefield 4 patches trickling in

After news of crashes and freezes when playing Battlefield 4, DICE had been very busy trying to patch up these errors and bugs. The end product of these will be released on December 3, at least for the PS4.

According to Battlelog, the patch will go live in the afternoon following European time. You can expect three fixes coming in with the patch, namely the "one-hit kill" bug which multiplies the damage you give to characters, the crash occurring for those with many Friends, and enabling of audio in PS4 video captures.

Gearbox Software is churning out holiday-themed Borderlands 2 DLCs, with the latest release being the Wattle Gobbler, the second of the Headhunter pack DLCs. And while that one celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday with the family, the next will come in time for Christmas festivities.

So far, the only concrete detail here is that it has been termed "How Marcus Saved Mercenary Day," with a very vague release date window frame of December. But YouTube use King Gothalion has featured a two-minute video showing off several Christmas skins that come with the third Borderlands 2 DLC.
