Batman: Arkham Origins - Everything We Know So Far

Arkham Origins The long awaited sequel to last year's incredible "Arkham Asylum" has finally been announced by Game Informer, and while we don't know so much about the game so far, the little information that we have should keep you very excited about the project. The game will be set around Christmas, at the beginning of Batman's career, and it will have Black Mask as the main villain of the game. In it, he'll put a price on Batman's head, so many of DC's most dangerous mercenaries will do a visit to Gotham City to take down the Cape Crusader. In the game, you'll have to fight them while you find out Black Mask's motives behind his orders. One of the characters confirmed to make an appearance in the game will be Deathstroke, and it will be released on Wii U, Xbox 360 and Play Station 3. But wait, there's more! The game will also have an immediate sequel in handheld consoles such as the Nintendo 3DS and the PS Vita, which will be called Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, and while we don't know much of the story of that one so far, we do know that it will take place entirely in Blackgate prision, immediately after the events of Origins. Both games are set to be released on October 25th of this year. batman-5 According to the developers, they want to expand the game's world by adding a new area to the map called New Gotham, with the Old Gotham being only half of the map. Not only that, the game will have several side missions in a "Most Wanted" System that would give the player rewards as they complete them. They'll also opt for training the player while the game progresses instead of doing "boring tutorials." So far so good, right? Well, if there's one thing to make you ever so slightly worried it's the fact that Rocksteady won't be developing this game. Since their project is "Tightly under wraps" this game will be developed by Warner Bros. Montreal. While the handheld version of the game will be done by Armature Studio (this studio was founded by several members of the team involved in the Metroid Prime series, so no worries on that). Since this game won't be held by the same guys who've worked on the previous two, many people seem to be worried, however we should give them the benefit of the doubt and see if they can come up with a good story. Let's see how well Warner Bros. Montreal handles this game, for the looks of it they're making some great progress in the game and it might be something really cool. We should also have in mind that Rocksteady is also working on another project (maybe a real sequel to the previous game) so we'll just have to see. Are you excited for Batman Arkham Origins?
