Understandably, a lot of fans of the series have been very frustrated with this price. Considering that most season passes are more often closer to $20, Warner Bros. has a lot of explaining to do.
Fortunately the publisher did actually come out and reveal details behind why the season pass costs so much. Whilst they didn't reveal that much about the upcoming DLC for Batman Arkham Knight, they did do a basic rundown of what to expect from it.
On a post on their Facebook page, Warner Bros. said "We've heard from our community that you want more information on what we'll be delivering in the Season Pass. While we aren't ready to unveil every aspect of the content we'll be developing, we would like to share more details now to give you a better sense of the scope of the Season Pass."
