Catwoman Playable In Arkham City

Gamestop has posted an interview with Rocksteady Studios’ Dax Ginn talking about one of the big announcements regarding Batman: Arkham City. It’s no secret that Catwoman will be appearing in the game, however today it’s been announced that she will also be a playable character. Players will be able to upgrade her armor and abilities just as they can with the Dark Knight. Catwoman will be more than a reskinned version of Batman. The absense of a cape removes any glide type abilities that Batman would have at his disposal so a new navigation system has been developed for Catwoman to use.

Batman: Arkham City is set to release on October 18th of this year and Dax promises that there will be a “revealathon” of information coming out between now and the release. You can check out a video of the interview after the break.
