Batman: Arkham Origins revealed

Batman: Arkham Origins will be released on October 25th this year, according to its publisher Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment

Strap on your utlity belts and fire up the Bat Signal: a brand new game in the hugely popular Batman: Arkham series has broken cover.

 

Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment has announced Batman: Arkham Origins will drop on October 2013 of this year and will be available on PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U platforms. A version for the 3DS and PS Vita handheld platforms, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate has also been announced.

The story for the game is pitched as a prequel to both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City and features a younger, less battle-hardened version of the Dark Knight - similiar in spirit to the Christopher Nolan film, Batman Begins.

Game Informer has revealed on its cover that one of the villains in the game will be Deathstroke, a highly skilled assassin in the DC Universe. Eurogamer has also reported that the main villain in the game will be Black Mask, who organises a city-wide manhunt for Batman.

As positive as all this sounds, one piece of news may give fans of the previous two 'Arkham' titles pause for thought: the developer behind them, RockSteady Games is not the studio making Batman: Arkham Origins. Instead, WB Montreal will be making the game. Reports suggest the new studio has access to RockSteady's modified Unreal Engine so they can recreate the look and feel of the previous titles.
