Batman Doesn’t Look Happy In This Batman: Arkham Origins Teaser


Warner Bros. have released a brief teaser trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins, the upcoming prequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. It doesn’t show any gameplay, unfortunately—just a few seconds of Batman fighting Deathstroke.



Set shortly after the start of Batman’s activities in Gotham, Arkham Origins shows his early interactions with the police and his rogues gallery. The game takes place on Christmas Eve, and the world’s best assassins have gathered in Gotham to take the Batman down. Deathstroke is one of them.


Batman: Arkham Origins is slated for release worldwide on October 25th on PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U. Meanwhile, a side-scrolling Metroid-esque game titled Arkham City Origins: Blackgate is in development for Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita.
