The PC version, while available through digital distribution platform Steam for a heavy $49.99 (Rs 3,072 approx) price tag, will be seeing a retail release on November 8.
The game also has a Season Pass available on its respective platforms, which costs $19.99 (Rs 1,230 approx). Buying the Season Pass will get you access to new challenge maps, two skin packs and a new single player campaign. Along with this, the Season Pass will also get you access to the Gotham by Gaslight and Brightest Day skins.
Bats just wants a hug
Arkham Origins is a prequel to the other Arkham games, and puts players in control of a relatively young Bruce Wayne, just two years into his career as the Batman. It features a bigger open world in the form of Gotham City and takes place before most of the villains in the city have risen to true power. The developers have explained that Batman in this game is unrefined and rough, especially when compared to the cold, calculating and crazily prepared Batman we saw in Arkham Asylum and Arkham City.
WB had released a launch trailer for the game just a couple of days ago. Dubbed the Personal Mission Launch trailer, it shows Batman getting ready to fight against assassins. The video sets quite a grim tone for the game, since essentially everyone in the game is against him.
