Trivia

Catwoman

As common with AAA games of this time period, purchasers of an unused version receive a one-time activation code to unlock a DLC; in this case Catwoman as playable character. In the PC version, Catwoman is included right away - but the Games for Windows Live package insert still talks about how Catwoman needs to be unlocked with the non-existing Pass Card...

Steam

In October 2013, the Games for Windows Live copy protection was ditched in favor for Steam. Previous owners of the game can activate their game with the old product key and the game is automatically upgraded to the Game of the Year Edition which includes all DLC. However, old save games are not compatible.
