In case you were looking for a reason to pre-order Batman: Arkham Origins five months in advance, now you’ve got one. Amazon has confirmed that Deathstroke, everyone’s favorite DC assassin, will be playable in the upcoming superhero title. As you might expect from the world’s largest online retailer, the extra character comes at a price. It’s a pre-order bonus, meaning you’ll have to plunk down a hard-earned $59.96 before the title’s October 26th launch.
If you’re desperate to get your hands on Batman’s mercenary nemesis, you can place your order here. You’ll also net yourself a $10 Amazon credit with the purchase.
Feeling impatient? Deathstroke made the roster of this year’s Mortal Kombat spin-off, Injustice: Gods Among Us. It’s going for a solid $50 on Amazon, and includes a magnificent horde of DC heroes and villains. Expect plenty of guns, lasers, and combos.
