With just two days left before the much-anticipated release of the Batman’s intense new adventure, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released the Batman: Arkham Origins – “Personal Mission” Launch Trailer. The launch trailer for this WB Games Montréal title sets the tone for visceral combat, an expansive Gotham City and action-packed story players can expect to see as they suit up as the young hero known as Batman to take on Black Mask and eight deadly assassins. Batman: Arkham Origins will be available on PlayStation®3, Xbox 360®, Nintendo Wii U™ and Windows PC will be available beginning Friday, October 25th.
This trailer showcases Black Mask, the feared gang leader and powerful mob boss in Gotham, now controlling the city’s criminal underworld. To survive the night and save his city, our hero’s strengths and skills will be tested and pushed to their limits. Black Mask (AKA Roman Sionis) has but one goal this Christmas Eve night, to kill the Batman. With the aim to further tighten his grip on the city, this ruthless and sadistic crime lord will stop at nothing to destroy the vigilante. To get this done, Black Mask has put a bounty on Batman’s head, and the eight assassins that are out to claim the prize will be some of the most dangerous and lethal killers the young crime-fighter has ever encountered.
Developed by WB Games Montréal, Batman: Arkham Origins is based on DC Comics’ core Batman license and features an expanded Gotham City and introduces an original prequel storyline set several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City. Taking place before the rise of Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals, the game showcases a young and unrefined Batman as he faces a defining moment in his early career as a crime fighter that sets his path to becoming the Dark Knight. As the story unfolds, players will meet many important characters for the first time and forge key relationships.
Batman: Arkham Origins is the next installment in the blockbuster Batman: Arkham videogame franchise and will be available for the Xbox 360, PS3, the Wii U system, and Windows PC. The game will be available beginning Oct. 25 along with Batman™: Arkham Origins Blackgate for PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system and Nintendo 3DS™ handheld system.
