I've heard mixed thoughts from fans about Batman: Arkham Origins
. Some love the idea and want to discover the origins of our favorite caped crime fighter, while others want the story to continue and couldn't care less about his origins. In any case Batman: Arkham Origins
is coming later this year and we have the first trailer for you along with information about the Deathstroke pack for people who pre-order.
Batman: Arkham Origins
will be going back in time several years before the events of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. Gotham City's most dangerous criminals are on their rise to power and a young and inexperienced Batman faces defining moments on his way to becoming The Dark Knight.
Those who pre-order the game will also get early access to the Deathstroke pack. The Deathstroke pack will contain Deathstroke as a playable character for challenge maps, two additional challenge maps and two alternate Deathstroke skins.
Batman: Arkham Origins
will be released worldwide on October 25th for the 360, PS3, Wii-U, and PC's. The game will release along with Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate
for Nintendo 3DS and Playstation Vita.
Some other good news is that it appears Kevin Conroy will be back to voice Batman in Arkham Origins
. I know a lot of people were disappointed when they learned he wouldn't return.
Be sure to check out the trailer below!
