Hello.
We have been told by Monolith that the base game will be around 130$ and that the All In pledge will be around 330$. So 200$ difference.
The expansions for Conan were 50$ each.
200$/50$ = 4
So my guess is that there will be four expansions.
What do you guys think? Multiple add-ons, four expansions or a mix between the two?

Sounds about right. I know that one of the add-ons includes the bat mobile.

Just speculation: I am thinking another one might be a Court of Owls add-on. It would include the Wayne Manor and the Bat Cave, and the giant T-Rex would be the wow factor. This is just speculation.

Both rumor and my prediction for the second expansion - Arkham Asylum

Let's do this!
(these are all guesses with all i hear here and on facebook)

Base game $140
2 big expansions $60 each (i heard Wayne Manor and Arkham Asylum) = $120
1 extra villain dashboard for 1vs1 mode $35
extra dice because everyone loves dice $15
Batmobile $30
2 Pack of scenarios props $20 = $40

so we are in the $360 range. With a discount to all-in, $330

Interesting. You made me realize that the court of owls miniatures don't appear on the main boxes trailer.

An Arkham Asylum expansion would complete my life.

Nice. Have you heard anything about stretch goals? I really hope there are stretch goals like in the Conan Kickstarter.

My guess is that they'll group either the add ons or sgs by storyline. A few new figures, maybe a new board and a book of scenarios that roughly follow the plot (hopefully with art from the comic). So based on what we've already seen, they could do a night of the owls one with the court and the thrasher suit, a DKR one with the miller dark knight (and maybe Carrie and some mutants), a long Halloween one with the alternate Catwoman (and other year one era alt sculpts), a death in the family one with faceless Joe. That might explain why they have mentioned specific storylines as inspirations.

I can definitely see Arkham and Wayne manor as the two big box expansions though.

I asked on Facebook, and Monolith said that the Bat mobile was an add-on.

Considering this hasn't been designed for retail, I don't think the expansion content is as strictly broken down to distinct expansions as for Conan.

Regardless, if there isn't a League of Shadows expansion, I'll riot.

If the SG's are new characters, I hope they have them planned up to Condiment King.

They've mentioned Hush, so I could definitely see it as one of the big milestone sgs.

I hope there's some kind of storage solution for backers who go all-in. The hero/villain boxes are a neat idea, so it would be a shame to have a bunch of separate expansion boxes as well.

The revealed boxes are said to be able to contain all pre-planned content, including t-rex and batmobile.

On Face book they said:

"These 2 boxes will constitute the core game, which includes all the base offerings plus all the stretch goals we're hoping will be unlocked during the campaign."

Storage solution achieved!

I don't think so. T-rex will probably fit in the Wayne Manor Box expansion and i doubt the batmobile will fit in the core box

They've said before no actual superhero heros. They're just too powerful to balance.

Regarding the OP, I honestly hope for minimal add-ons, for the sole purpose of having fewer boxes and it would help them with fewer possible order combinations.

We're already at 2 boxes. Ideally I would love to have everything fit into those two boxes. I create my own inserts etc. 3 at the most.

Let the math minion do the work

Core + SG = All - Add-ons

I take your view. The ideal would be for all the boxes to be the same size and with uniform design.

BTW, hasn'r somebody mention two big box expansions about a month ago? At the time they were described as Arkham Asylum and Wayne Manor (which will most likely be Cout of Owls).

I guess the rest of the sum will be distributed among smaller add-ons like Batmobile and and bat-credit card

Do we know how many maps are included in the core? Beside the subway. It may help make wild guesses about expansions.

Heck, they may blow us away with a Gaslight expansion. Probably not.

Yep, that's what I said, and it's still that two .
That, Versu Mode, and a small one, the Batmobile.

4 add-ons.

EDIT : 4 maps in corebox.

So the second big expansion might not be Arkham Asylum....hear me out:

4 maps in corebox: we were show subway, sewers, streets and ACE chemicals. I think these are the core maps.

first expansion is wayne manor we saw the maps (or parts of)

it was said that there's a bank map, but if the core game have all the maps showed, bank does not fit the Arkham Asylum theme. Only if Sewers are part of the Arkham Asylum....

I feel like ACE chemicals could be a Joker origins Add-on, but who knows. I like your guess too.
