The Cold, Cold Heart story add-on introduces new locations including Wayne Manor and GothCorp, taking players on an ice-cold journey as Victor Fries encounters Batman for the first time. Game Director Benoit Richer and Creative Director Eric Holmes explain a little more about what you can expect from the new Batman XE Suit and the Batman Arkham Origins Cold, Cold Heart DLC :
“It comes with thermal abilities. There’s heat coils that run around the suit. First of all, there’s one for the suit that makes you able to stand in extreme cold zones. Also, you’re able to heat up your glove and break ice elements or people that have been trapped in ice.
You’re also able to charge up your batarang with heat and destroy ice from a distance. Also, you can use it in combat. We have new moves, new takedowns to complement this. Obviously, we have new enemies that use ice tech as well. Mr Freeze is not the only one that uses ice tech, and we have thugs that can now use cryotech weapons.
So he has had to align himself with another one of the crimelords of Gotham, to try and achieve what he’s going to try to achieve tonight. You’re going to see him teamed up with another one of the characters, one of the major characters of the Arkham universe and you’re going to see sparks fly.”
