As previously detailed, Batman: Arkham Origins takes place on Christmas Eve in Gotham City, and is set early in Batman’s career. Black Mask, none too happy with Batman’s existence, has hired eight of the world’s best assassins to kill him.

 

 

Some of these assassins we already know about—Deathstroke, Deadshot and Bane. The fourth, Warner Bros. revealed this afternoon, is Copperhead.  You can watch a trailer featuring her above. Yes, her. It would seem Copperhead in Arkham Origins is female, like in DC’s “New 52” relaunch.

 

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

 

Slight correction: Bane has been revealed in the past as well. Thanks to Solomon Kano for pointing this out.
