Rocksteady's latest superhero epic is set to release next week and most of us will be picking up the game as a brand new, cellophane wrapped disc complete with instruction booklet and more, but Batman won't take kindly to used games sales in the future.
With copies of the game making their way to the streets, Gothamites have found that Catwoman's gameplay both in the story mode and in challenge maps is locked to those who did not purchase Batman: Arkham City new or have not bought a VIP pass for $10.
DLC packs will also unlock Robin and Nightwing, but Catwoman has been heavily marketed as part of the game. Playing as the thief is not required to complete the game. Those playing the campaign without an online pass will see Catwoman in cutscenes but her gameplay sections are completely missing.
