AI-controlled character joins the fray.

An AI-controlled Bane will fight alongside Batman in Arkham City, Warner has announced.

Bane teams up with Batman during a series of sub missions that involve tracking down shipments of chemical contraband, Go Nintendo reports. Bane is not playable.

Bane joins anti-heroine Talia al Ghul on the game's expanding cast. The Joker, The Riddler, Catwoman, Robin, Mr Freeze, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, The Penguin, Two Face, Hugo Strange, Victor Zsasz, Calendar Man and Black Mask are all confirmed to appear in some capacity.

During a Comic-Con panel developer Rocksteady revealed a new gadget for Batman, a Remote Electrical Charge (REC). It shoots an instant spark that knocks enemies back or electrocutes armour-wearing enemies.

Meanwhile, the panel revealed that the game includes around four hours of Catwoman gameplay.
