Batman: Arkham Origins: First trailer, Joker confirmed, Deathstroke playable
It’s a big day for Batman: Arkham Origins news. First, Kevin Conroy confirmed that he’ll be providing the voice of Batman in the game. And now, as promised, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released the first trailer for the game.
The five-minute clip is an outstanding introduction to the prequel story. Batman is lured to an abandoned warehouse (but then, aren’t they all?) by Deathstroke, who has been hired by Black Mask to kill the Caped Crusader. But taking a page from Assassins/Smokin’ Aces/other assassin compeition films, a few other killers-for-hire (including Deadshot) are after The Dark Knight as well.
And speaking of Deathstroke, he’s all set to be a playable character in the Challenge Map portion of the game. The Deathstroke Pacl will come complete with “his own unique weapons and special moves,” two bonus character skins, and two Deathstroke-exclusive maps. Players who pre-order the game will receive the Deathstroke Pack first… and for free.
Finally, WB Games has released the first six screenshots of Batman: Arkham Origins and they include confirmation that The Joker will play at least some role in the game. Will he be voiced by Mark Hamill? Hopefully the answer is yes, but with Hamill’s retirement from the character, I have my doubts.
Batman: Arkham Origins will be released for the PC, PS3, Wii U, and Xbox 360 on October 25. You can check out those first screenshots after the break.
