Arkham City's Catwoman Content Tied To Online Pass

Warner Bros has revealed that the playable Catwoman content in Batman: Arkham City will be offered as a code available in newly purchased copies of the game. [UPDATE: Gamestop giving used codes.]
Following a trend set by other major publishers, Warner Bros has revealed that every new copy of Batman: Arkham City will come bundled with a VIP online pass, which will serve as the only means of accessing the game's playable Catwoman content, reports Eurogamer. With the pass, players will gain access to four story scenes that feature Catwoman, and will be able to play as the comic book femme fatale in the game's challenge mode. Without the pass, the character will appear in the game's campaign, though she will not be playable. For those who buy the game second-hand, the VIP pass will be available to purchase for 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live or $10 on PlayStation Network. "Playing as Catwoman is not required to complete the game," a Warner Bros. representative told Eurogamer. A number of other titles have used similar tactics to dissuade used game sales, including Ubisoft's Driver: San Francisco, THQ's Homefront, and a number of first-party Sony titles. [UPDATE: An internal memo obtained by Kotaku confirms that major retailer Gamestop will be offering Catwoman DLC codes to used Arkham City purchasers.]
