Catwoman’s Arkham City Skins (Goggles Bad Continued)October 20, 2011
Alright, updating information on the Catwoman skins for those of us who haven’t been living and breathing these games for years.
First: the explanation on “only with a new game” – Catwoman is a downloadable pack that comes with both the animated series and long halloween skins. if you bought the game (ie it is new) then you will get a code in the package to get that download pack for free. If you rent the game or buy it used the code will have been used, you’ll have to pay for the download but it is still available to you. So there is no need to worry about some pre-release versions not having her/the skins.
Now, how to “unlock” and apply a skin, no idea yet. But stay tuned. There are two Catwoman skins, and it’s clearly labeled on the download pack so this isn’t any kind of spoiler, they want you to know they’re there and what they are: The Long Halloween is the purple option and Batman the Animated Series as seen in that video.
I have NO IDEA if there are more out there. I will say this to those hoping for the Iconic Jim Balent costume or the classic silver age costume: they both have hair, and as someone who spent two years crafting a Catwoman look in Second Life, hair is a bitch. What the goggle disaster, The Long Halloween and BTAS have in common are tucked in hair. Do I hope they’d put in the effort, sure. But with TLH she is purple and with BTAS she is at least in a proper cat mask. Let’s rejoice and be glad.
