In any instance, the core game didn't end the whole experience for gamers who loved this game. There were the challenge maps after all was said and done. 16 of them for Batman if you completed a good chunk of the Riddle's riddles. Another 8 for those who have the PS3 version of the game. Also with the announcement last week about there being new challenges on the way soon. Soon rumored to be this week. Also rumored it would be just one freeflow map and another predator the following week. Well Eidos and Warner Bros. say dash on that rumor.
For all versions of the game, look for two new maps to hit on the 17th. One freeflow and one predator. From the sounds of it, one take place in one of the outdoor maps from the game. I say that because in the presser below they talk about using watchtowers to help with your silent takedowns. I'm thinking the North or East parts of the island. The freeflow takes place in the records room were there is a mad dash to escape. Why they are escaping from the records room, I have no clue. But we'll just have to wait until the 17th to see I guess.
