The “Batman: Arkham Origins” Trailer Packs a Punch


by on May 20, 2013

We gave you a taste on Friday of what to expect from Warner Bros. Games Montreal’s upcoming prequel game Batman: Arkham Origins, the third installment in the vaunted Arkham series of Batman games, but now we’re back with the first full trailer and it’s a sizzling 4 minutes and 53 seconds of non-stop Batman-on-Deathstroke action.

Plus there’s even a guest appearance by the game’s big baddie, the Black Mask, a character which may be awfully familiar to you comic book fans out there. According to the teaser at the end of the trailer, one of the pre-order bonuses will be the ability to play as Deathstroke. Here’s hoping that they include an optional first-person mode so you can get an idea of how messed up his depth perception really is.

Batman: Arkham Origins drops on October 25th, 2013. What do you think so far? Let us know in the comments below!
