I don't know that much about Batman, but I've always been impressed by his seemingly unique skill set.  How driven must one be to become an expert at the things Batman is an expert at?  

However, this new trailer showcasing the Initiation Challenge Map Add-On for Batman: Arkham Origins seems to suggest that Bruce Wayne simple enrolled in Batman School, passed some exams, and then donned the cowl.  What a let down, eh?  

Anyway, the Initiation Challenge Map Add-On sees Bruce training in your standard mountain-top martial arts monastery.  It will add four new challenge maps and two new character skins: Initiation Bruce Wayne and Vigilante Bruce Wayne.  It will be available tomorrow (Dec. 3) on the PSN, Xbox Live online entertainment network, Steam, and the Nintendo eShop for $6.99 unless you have purchased the season pass - then you can download it at no cost.

Tomorrow, Dec. 3, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will be releasing the Initiation Challenge Map Add-On for Batman™: Arkham Origins on the PlayStation®Network, Xbox LIVE online entertainment network from Microsoft, Steam and Nintendo eShop for $6.99.

Players who have purchased the Batman: Arkham Origins Season Pass and are connected to the Internet will have instant access to the content.

Set high in the Paektu-San Mountains of North Korea, the Initiation Add-On follows a young Bruce Wayne as he faces his ultimate test. Players will embark upon a series of challenge maps that test their martial arts training across exotic locales, including a bamboo forest and a mountain top monastery. Fans will face fresh enemies along with an epic final test to prove their worthiness to Bruce’s greatest and most pitiless teacher, Kirigi.
