E3 always brings new announcements to be gawked at, but often it’s the second round of info and footage that I’m more excited for. And with Batman: Arkham Origins mere months away from release, what better time to whet the appetite than at E3?
Batman: Arkham Origins features an expanded Gotham City and introduces an original prequel storyline occurring several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City.
Taking place before the rise of Gotham City’s most dangerous villains and assassins, the game showcases a young, raw, unrefined Batman as he faces a defining moment in his early career as a crime fighter that sets his path to becoming the Dark Knight.
As the story unfolds, witness identities being formed and key relationships being forged.
Looks mighty tasty. I know that it’s not being developed by Rocksteady (yet they’re working on their own Batman title still – so annual Batman goodness!!), but I still can’t help but be excited by the game’s look and premise.
Batman: Arkham Origins is released worldwide on 25th October.
Is anyone else excited to step back into Batman’s boots? Which characters would you like to see as major players this time around?
