Here is your very first look at WB games latest Bat themed adventure, Batman: Arkham Origins. This game is what we have been waiting for. Read on for the goods.
It’s Deathsroke vs Batman and the cinematic visuals on display here are absolutely staggering!
-Batman: Arkham Origins is a prequel story set during Batman’s Second Year of crime-fighting. The story takes place on Christmas Eve night.
-Game developers have said that Batman is experienced but he’s not the veteran crime-fighter from the first two games in the Batman: Arkham series. With the story taking place early in his career the Gotham City Police Department aren’t quite sure what to make of Batman. And up till Christmas Eve, the Caped Crusader has only faced normal thugs and criminals. That all changes when Deathsroke the Terminator comes to town leading a band of mercenaries that have all been hired to kill the Batman.
-The game will include a fast travel system where Batman can summon his plane, the Batwing, to transport him to other areas of the game world quicker than gliding or grappling can allow.
-RockSteady makers of the first two video games in the Batman: Arkham series did not return for the prequel. WB Games Montréal took over developer duties but used the same modified gaming engine that their predecessor used.
– Paul Dini of Batman: The Animated Series fame also did not return as writer. The story is written by Dooma Wendschuch and Corey May who had input from Geoff Johns.
-There are unconfirmed rumors of multiplayer at this time.
– The soundtrack for the game was inspired by the 1988 action film Die Hard which also had a Christmas theme.
-Batman: Arkham Origins will be released October 25, 2013.
