Batman Arkham Origins has now been available to play for more than a day now, and while the reviews haven’t been quite so hyperbole driven as those that met the first two games released under the Rocksteady banner, the game is an engaging, entertaining romp that will appeal to action game fans and Batman fans alike.
The combat system is typically excellent, the gameplay massive fun, and the game environments are as rich and beautiful as you might expect, even with a new developer in the mix. But as with Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, the greatest pleasure of Arkham Origins (aside from beating the excellent story mode) comes in exploring and sharing the finer, tiny details that build the game’s character.
f fans expected Warner Brothers to take their foot off the pedal and stop adding in so many Easter Eggs and fan-friendly references, but it appears the new development team have accepted the concern as a very necessary part of the game’s brand, and Arkham Origins has a lot of references and Easter Eggs, which are now being discovered.
So with that in mind, we’ve put together a list of the best Easter Eggs and reference points we’ve found so far.
Naturally, there are some spoilers within.
The Frozen Thugs
One of the side-narratives of the game, which runs concurrently to the festive assassination attempts features a gang war between The Penguin and the Falcone family, and eagle eyed players will be able to spot two unfortunate casualties of the war in the shape of these frozen goons.
There’s a little nod back to Arkham City, in which a thug could be found partly encased in ice, and this frozen Egg will no doubt feel familiar for players who found the alien entombed in ice in GTA V.
