Batman Arkham Knight, has been available for some time now gathering rave reviews on consoles, despite having a somewhat messy release on the PC. Warner Bros. has just announced that the first story DLC for Batman: Arkham Knight, Batgirl: A Matter of Family, will release July 14 for season pass holders and July 21 for everyone else.
NeoGAF forum member Sectus has discovered a variety of content not available in the main game, like extra costumes for Batman, Catwoman and Robin, as well as extra AR challenges. These may be added in future DLCs releasing at a later date for Batman Arkham Knight, or may very well be scrapped ideas that did not make it into the final game.

Description_9=Play as Nightwing and master the fighting methods that made this former Robin great.
Description_10=Play as Batman’s most trusted sidekick, Robin, and master his unique fighting style.
The challenge mission below contains some spoilers in its description:
