May Cover Revealed: Batman: Arkham Origins

Warner Bros. Games Montreal has taken the mantle of the bat from Rocksteady Studios this time around for Batman: Arkham Origins. WB Montreal has full access to Rocksteady's custom modified Unreal engine to capture the look and feel of the Arkhamverse. As the title suggests, the game takes place years before both of the previous Arkham titles when a young, unrefined Batman encounters many supervillains for the first time. On our full cover image below, fans will recognize the assassin Deathstroke, who appears for the very first time in a core Arkham game.

Heading up the vision for Arkham Origins is creative director Eric Holmes, known for being the lead designer of open world action hits The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction and Prototype. A self-professed lover of comics, Holmes even wrote the miniseries Transformers: Megatron Origin for IDW.

I really hope this new team creates a game that is up to the high standards and level of quality of the other games in the Batman Arkham series

Simon_Brezhnev2113d ago

I like Deathstroke. He a better fighter than bats and beat him up more than once.

Nice to see Wii U getting another third party game.

Abash2113d ago (Edited 2113d ago )

The Wii U also received Arkham City last year, I dont see how Arkham Origins being on the platform is surprising

PopRocks3592113d ago

It's probably more surprising to see it as part of a simultaneous release. The Wii U's third party offerings have mostly been late releases compared to the 360 and PS3 versions. Though it's nice to see more releases coming on time. Take Injustice for example.

Hyped to see a new Arkham game but I'm a little disappointed it's current gen. A PS4/Xbox 3 Arkham game could be stunning.

Seraphemz2113d ago

I agree, especially since the Next gen consoles should be releasing around that time anyway...

Genuine-User2113d ago

Well I think Rocksteady might be working on a next generation title.

It would only be dissapointing imo if it was the main arkham series' 3rd title .

I'm just glad it isnt a silver age styled and designed title

Kanzes2113d ago (Edited 2113d ago )

I think it's a good thing. There's so many good games to buy when PS4 is launched.. not mentioned there's so much AAA games like Witcher 3 and Dark Souls at Q1 2014 @@

Trago13372113d ago

Thing is, both of those consoles will have very small install bases at launch, it wouldn't make sense to release a game when there's a chance that so few people would buy it, being as people would likely buy the exclusive games on that new system rather than the multiplats that are on other systems,just look at the Wii U and you'll see what i'm talking about.


This is just AWESOME!!
i really cant express my feelings by words HELP MEEEEEEE!!!!
