This looks…BAT-TASTIC! We love us some Batman here at TD and now we got your first look at the official trailer for the Dark Knight’s next video game romp, Batman: Arkham Origins. Check out the trailer below.
Did we mention we have the official box art for the game as well? Yeah, we got ya covered.
Roger Craig Smith, who has voiced Ezio from Assassin’s Creed and Chris Redfield from Resident Evil will be voicing Batman, NOT Kevin Conroy.
Either, the game will feature flashbacks and we’ll have an older and younger Bruce Wayne in the game and therefore both Conroy and Smith or Conroy is actually working on RockSteady’s Silver Age Justice League video game, not Origins.
The Joker is also confirmed to appear in the game but he’s also voiced by a different actor, Troy Baker.
Other villains confirmed are Bane, Deadshot, Anarky, Black Mask, and of course Deathstroke. The box art also features Killer Croc and Penguin.
Via the L.A. Times, in addition to the Joker, we also have our first look at classic DC Comics villain Anarky, who is making his Arkhamverse video game debut in ‘Origins’. Reportedly, Anarky will be a side-mission type boss similar to how The Riddler and Zsasz were used in Batman: Arkham City.
-Batman: Arkham Origins is a prequel story set during Batman’s Second Year of crime-fighting. The story takes place on the of Christmas Eve.
-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.
