Red Hood is kind of a divisive character in the DC comics universe. On the one hand he's got kind of an interesting backstory (spoilers excised), as a prime example of how Batman's influence on his squad of teenage accomplices isn't always a good thing for them.
On the other hand, he often comes across as a sulky, arrogant little brat with a penchant for guns and nu-metal posturing. So I wasn't entirely thrilled to see him chosen as one of Batman: Arkham Knight's bonus DLC characters.
In the video above we get to see the masked anti-hero in action for the first time, and yes, I suppose those acrobatic gun-fu moves are pretty cool. It'll be interesting to see how Rocksteady handles a more range-focused character in the next iteration of its combat engine. From the look of the action here, Red Hood's dual pistols seem to be used more for melee finishers than ranged takedowns, but I'm sure he'll have his own tricks in the game's stealth-based Predator mode.
You'll unlock the Red Hood Story Pack if you pre-order from GameStop in the US, or GAME in the UK, though Rocksteady and Warner Bros do plan to release it as a standalone DLC pack some time after Arkham Knight launches this June 23 .
