Video: Batman: Arkham Origins Gameplay Trailer Goes for the Takedown

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Holy retro Batman cliche, Batman!

With presentations wrapping up — apart from the Nintendo Direct stream — E3 is preparing to open to the public and enter full PR hype mode. We can expect plenty of trailers and info-drops, and Warner Bros. is the latest to jump into the fray with the first gameplay footage of Batman: Arkham Origins, the prequel coming to Wii U in October.

It certainly bears similarities with the wintry urban setting of Batman: Arkham City, although it's a younger Batman taking on a variety of fresh enemies from the DC lore. Showing the storyline of multiple villains having one night to kill Batman, this shows off the in-game engine extensively, rather than bombarding us with more CGI footage.

Check it out below and let us know what you think.

Pre-order and play as Deathstroke! Very interesting...however something about it looks slightly rough. Undoubtedly this should be as good as the others in the series.

Joker's voice was much better than I assumed when they said no more Mark Hammill, but he will be missed.



Trikeboy said:

The voice actors for Batman and Joker sound like a young Kevin Conroy and a young Mark Hamill. Great casting guys.

The 3DS games seems to look good, hope it is! I'm bored of not ambitious ports cause it's an handheld... (Sonic Racing, Castlevania firsts to come to my mind)
