If, like me – you’re eagerly awaiting the release of the third Batman game, and want to know some detail about the villains involved, than wait no further.
The folks over at CVG have got a pretty awesome exclusive in the form of the villains revealed for the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins, which of course, was always going to be a prequel given the events in the shocking conclusion of Batman: Arkham City. Whilst I was hoping for a Justice League-style prequel introducing the League and allowing you to take control of various DC superheroes such as Superman, Batman, Flash, Wonder Woman et al, in various cities as they attempt to stop a mass invasion from an alien foe. However, I’ll be more than pleased that we’re just getting another solo-Batman title, and even though Rocksteady aren’t behind it this time, it’s still hopefully going to be very awesome indeed.
According to CVG, the game will feature Deathstroke, with the images confirming the Joker (I’ll always call him The Joker, not Joker), Bane, Killer Croc, Scarecrow and Deadshot.
The game itself will feature a younger, less experienced Batman as he fights super-villains for the first time during Christmas Eve, dealing with “eight of the world’s best assassins,” that are sent to kill him.
So needless to say, I hope this game is going to be pretty awesome. Are you looking forward to Arkham Origins? Is it too early to say? Let me know in the comments below. The game is scheduled for release on October 25 later this year, with a spinoff, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, coming to Nintendo 3DS and Playstation Vita.
