There is a big ol gaming shindig over at E3 right this very moment, and one of the games that got everyone all salivating was “Batman: Arkham Origins”, thanks to this gameplay trailer. It looks like ol Bats has his hands full in this one, but then again, when does he not? I’m still not totally digging the whole “armored like a tank” look (how does he even move in that thing, anyway?), but it’s hard to deny that this is one ridiculously cool looking game.
Check out the 2-minute trailer below and watch Bats takes on a bunch of bad guys including, of course, the Joker. What would a Batman game be without the Joker, after all?
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.
Batman cleans up Gotham (again) on all the consoles this October 25, 2013.
