Eight years after its initial release, Batman: Arkham Knight has surprised its fanbase with a free update, introducing a new suit inspired by Robert Pattinson’s portrayal of the Dark Knight in the 2022 film, The Batman.
This unexpected addition has brought a fresh wave of excitement to the gaming community, allowing players to dive back into the streets of Gotham with a new look.
The new suit, aptly named “The Batman Skin – 2022,” captures the sharp yet bulky design seen in the film, bringing a sense of brooding intensity to the game.
While the suits in Batman: Arkham Knight typically don’t reference previous Batman actors, players have noted that from certain angles, it seems as if Pattinson’s eyes are peering out from behind the mask. This attention to detail adds to the allure of the new suit, as expressive eye movements were a standout feature of Pattinson’s performance in the film.
Exclusive to Epic Games Store (For Now)

Currently, the update is only available on the Epic Games Store, leaving players on Steam, Xbox, and PlayStation eagerly awaiting their turn to don the new Batsuit. However, with the upcoming release of the Batman: Arkham Trilogy on Nintendo Switch set for December 1st, there is speculation that the new suit may be added to other platforms to coincide with this launch.
While this remains unconfirmed, the gaming community is hopeful that the Pattinson-inspired Batsuit will not be an Epic Games Store exclusive for long.
Batman: Arkham Knight holds a special place in the hearts of many gamers, having concluded the acclaimed Arkham trilogy in 2015. The game introduced new elements to the series, such as a playable Batmobile and a wide array of alternate Batsuits.
This surprise update has rekindled interest in the game, providing long-time fans and new players alike with a reason to revisit Gotham City.
