If You’ve Been Waiting On Gameplay Footage Of Batman: Arkham Origins…

By Ishaan . October 21, 2013 . 12:31pm

Batman: Arkham Origins Senior Producer Ben Mattes and Gameplay Director Michael McIntyre have shared a video walkthrough from an early portion of the game, showing off a healthy amount of game play footage, which you can watch below.



As previously reported, Arkham Origins takes place around year 2 of Batman’s career, and Batman and Gotham City Police Department aren’t friends in this game. The developers say that the GCPD wants Batman behind bars or dead.


Among the new features in Batman: Arkham Origins is the Batcave. The Batcave has a training area for practicing moves and challenge maps, the Batwing for fast-travel, the Bat-computer, Alfred who will advise you throughout the game, and the workbench where you acquire new gadgets for Batman.


Batman: Arkham Origins will be available on October 25th for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U.

    Look just as good as always.

    So many games to buy this end of the year…

    Anyone heard news about when the review embargo lifts for this game?

    • British_Otaku

      Nope, but given that it is releasing in 3 days, we should be seeing them really soon unless Warner Bros are still nervous about letting a few negative reviews leak out before the preorder copies have been posted and unwrapped.

      Some embargos do end as a long as a week after the release date of a game, or alternatively they send no review code out for journalists to make gathered early analysis…

      Eidos (publishers of Asylum) weren’t particularly sporting with Asylum as they apparently only let 90+ % reviews out at first (http://www.neoseeker.com/news/11384-first-batman-arkham-asylum-review-under-question/ ), even if the game was genuinely good that must have lost some good will…

        Was unfamiliar with that article which placed Eidos’ approach to controlling perceptions generated through reviews. Glad you linked it.

        I also assume the embargo will be lifted in the coming days. What concerns me is how quiet the internet appears to be on the issue–which is unusual as far as big budget titles are concerned.

        • British_Otaku

          No problem. It was Eidos back then, who are most famous review handling wise for Kane and Lynch + GameStop (negative review for a crappy game, reviewer fired, he made Giant Bomb and most of the guys there are badasses). Warner Bros (handling this game) might be better, who knows.

          Perhaps it’s part of the rules of the embargo, not to announce the terms or date of the embargo till a certain point. We have this unease and silence for a lot of games, if you hang out on forums like GameFAQs often. :P

          We run out of things to talk about, publishers run out of PR talk or materials which won’t spoil the experience and people just ask when the reviews will be up.

    smexy batcave is smexy

    and alfred looks rather weird o.o, he looks too young at this point

  • Soma Schicksal

    I like how Roger Craig Smith represents a less refined Batman and how Batman is still a raw on the edges in terms of his voice compared to Batman’s previous voice actor Kevin Conroy where it carries a weight of wisdom and experience.

  • SonicRulez

    I’m so anxious for this game to land already!
