Yes Arkham City released a couple of months ago but Rocksteady has decided to reward its fans now and give the ones who yet to finish the game or want to replay the game a free DLC surprise, while most of the DLC is from pre-order (Except Catwoman) they have given fans a specific Batman costume for free and its redeemable via the XBOX LIVE Marketplace, the PlayStation Network Store and Games for Windows Live Marketplace but without entering a special cheat code in the form of a series of directions you will only have half the DLC. 😀
While the game has been out for more than a while now on the consoles and suffered a month-ish delay on the PC version Rocksteady has decided to award their fans by giving them a free DLC costume redeemable from your nearby marketplace no matter what the platform. This is really great and all but couldn't they have announced this sooner so that people who were still playing the game could have taken advantage of this? Although if you are looking to beat the game again on New Game+ This DLC costume would give a great excuse to do so 😀
In order to unlock the DLC you will have to download the costume and when you are at the Main Menu (After choosing your save slot) press the following button combination (The combination is a series of directions and will work on any platform)
Left, Left, Down, Down, Left, Left, Right, Up, Up, Down.
You will hear an audio confirmation and will then be able to redeem your new costume, the costume can be applied at any time even DURING a play through so you don't need to start a new game or beat the game to be able to use the costume.
Here is a full statement from the people at Rocksteady
