After having recently announced the Season Pass for the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins, the game's Producer, Guillaume Voghel, revealed some more details about it at the Eurogamer Expo. According to Voghel, the Initiations DLC, which is set to be a prequel to Origins, will have Bruce Wayne visit Asia.

"You play as Bruce Wayne learning to be a ninja," Voghel told Eurogamer at EGX 2013. "That's a really cool one. Narratively there's some added content that will give players a little more background story."

The Initiation DLC will involve Bruce Wayne's travels to an Asian monastery where he learned how to be a ninja from Kirigi—the same ninja who taught Ra's al Ghul's League of Assassins. However, this DLC isn't related to the League.

"[But] it's not League of Assassins, it's ninja-related," Voghel continued. "It's when he learned to be a ninja and learned those techniques. He goes to a monastery - custom content was created for the DLC. You'll be in Asia in the monastery. The team did a great job on that, it looks really good."

Voghel also revealed that Arkham Origins will have a new difficulty mode that is unlocked after finishing the game once, dubbed I Am the Night mode. In it, players will not have the ability to save the game and will only have one life. This means that if you die even five minutes before the final boss, you will have to start over.

 

 

Arkham Origins is hitting stores on October 26. It is also getting a tie-in game on the PlayStation Vita and the 3DS, titled Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate.
