In Batman: Arkham Knight, Barbara Gordon's role is known as Oracle. But before the tragic incident with the Joker, she was patrolling the city of Gotham as Batgirl.
On July 14th, you'll be able to go through some of her adventures as Batgirl in the DLC Batgirl: A Matter of Family. The story takes place before the events of Arkham Knight and will let you play as her with new locations to explore and new gadgets to use.
The DLC will be available for all those who have the Season Pass on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on July 14th. If you want to purchase it separately, you'll have to wait a week and pony up $6.99.
Not too surprisingly, the press release fails to mention the PC release since the main game has been put on hold from sale for now. I wonder if those who have the Season Pass on the PC will be able to play it come next week.
