We just got a first look at Batgirl in the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight expansion, “Batgirl: A Matter of Family,” but now you can see her in action in the first trailer. The downloadable episode is a prequel to 2009’s Arkham Asylum, and features a pre-Oracle Barbara Gordon teaming up with Robin to rescue her father, Commissioner Gordon, who’s being held captive by the Joker and Harley Quinn.

The explosive 90-second video shows off Seagate Amusement park, a new area that was developed specifically for the DLC, as well as a glimpse at how Batgirl uses her hacking abilities to take down Joker’s masked thugs.

“It was of paramount importance to us that Batgirl feels powerful and unique among the Batman family,” says Justin Vazquez, design producer at developer WB Games Montreal. “Unlike Robin and Nightwing, she’s a Bat; she’s the hero of this story, not a sidekick, and we wanted players to experience that.”

Players will have their chance when “Batgirl: A Matter of Family” launches July 14 for Arkham Knight DLC ­season-pass holders (PS4 and Xbox One, $40), or it can be purchased separately on July 21 for $6.99.
