Batman: Arkham Origins Promises “Expanded World” Plus Series First Gotham Streets Setting

RipTen writes: "Arkham City was fairly open to begin with so how much larger will Eric and his team go with Origins? Will the "sandbox" approach grant us the ability to not only explore places we haven't been able to in previous iterations but also allow us to freely make use of elements we couldn't before, such as vehicles etc?"

If vehicles are introduced in Origins, would you want to see that?

Yi-Long1203d ago

... but only if they do those vehicles justice. They will need to a: have real function, instead of just being a gimmick to list on the box, and b: they need to be FUN to use.

Nostradavis1203d ago

Good point. My concern is that it ends up feeling generic and the stealth aspect of the game is lost.

OcelotRigz1203d ago (Edited 1203d ago )

Exactly Yi-Long. I know if they expand the world it would be pretty strange to have a huge city with no vehicles and with the freedom of an open-world game it would be just weird to have batman in his costume walking along the street, cars driving by.
Its going to be very interesting, im a huge fan of the other two, they have an old school gaming feel to them, remind me of games i grew up playing. Pity Rocksteady aint doing it though, that has me a bit worried.

If they do vehicles i hope its kinda like Just Cause, flipping from car to car and fist fighting on trucks would be sweet. Make the bat cape like the parachute in Just Cause so you can eject from a fast car to build momentum for better height and flying distance.

New remote claw that is like the grappler in Just Cause 2
- Batman targets two objects and fires out a claw
- This hooks into the first object and launches another claw and rope to the second object
- Can then pull the two objects together
- Use this to knock enemies together, slam heavy objects into foes, string objects or people under a perch
- Can string up an explosive barrel under a perch, lure enemies with a sonic batarang, then cut the rope with a normal batarang, dropping the explosive on their heads

Not sure about the vehicles and cape being like a chute, but that gives a glimmer of hope to it.

if done right an thats not a easy thing to do they kinda have to if you ask me natural progression. they should (most would disagree) make it complicated rather then just driving down a high way dogging obstacle's. it should have dynamic change in environments underground over grown jumps

but all in all i think they should just stick to what they been doing. some people will trash the game if this is not done right dlc maybe

BUT IT's NOT ROCKSTEADY!

LOGICWINS1203d ago

Don't like it don't buy it. If I think the game is good, I don't give a rats ass who made it.

Genuine-User1203d ago (Edited 1203d ago )

Theoretically, what if the game was created by a bunch of serial killers?

I understand what you're saying though, we should only worry if the game is in development at a crap studio.

LOGICWINS1203d ago

Not all serial killers are bad

<3 Dexter :)

@Genuine-User

If its a good game, who cares.

Look around your room, the plastic comes from oil, think about where oil comes from and how its obtained. Your clothes, how is that made? Your food?
If you want to go deeper, unless you live in either the north or south pole, the chances are your house is on land that was pillaged somewhere down the line.

So yeah.... i forgot what my point was.

WB Montreal know what they're doing with the series though. They were the ones in charge of the Armoured Edition of Arkham City.

browland11203d ago

I like what I've heard about this so far. The Batman Arkham games have been top quality so far, so I'm expecting great things from this one as well.

RedDeadLB1203d ago

They have a good idea with this, but let's hope their execution is top notch as well.

Jek_Porkins1203d ago

People act as if developer teams stay together forever, I'm sure a good portion of Rocksteady's team from the first Batman game weren't there for the second. This new game is using all the assets and engine that Rocksteady left, these are professional developers, the game will still be solid.
