With just two days to go before Batman: Arkham Origins hits stores, Warner Bros has released a new trailer for the game. 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. Check out the trailer:
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.
Batman also has thicker armour in this game
The developers had earlier released a video that showcased some of the game’s mechanics. One of the key new additions to the game is the fast travel system. Following in the footsteps of Arkham City, Origins features an open world which can be a pain to travel through sometimes. To remedy this, the developers have added in a fast travel system using the Batwing. The developers claim that Origins features an open world that is around twice the size of the world in Arkham City. The game also features one of the most iconic locations from the DC Universe mythos—the Batcave. Here, Batman can get new gadgets, take part in training, use his supercomputer and talk to Alfred about the ongoing missions.
When it's out, the game will be available on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
