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 PS3, Xbox 360, the Wii U system, and PC. Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, the handheld version developed by Armature Studio, will be available for PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system and the Nintendo 3DS handheld system. The game will release on all platforms worldwide on Oct. 25, 2013.
In other news, after Amazon had said on their Batman: Arkham Origins purchase page (and still are) that the Deathstroke DLC would only be available to PS3 and Xbox 360 orders only, a rumor started to spread that the Wii U was no longer receiving this the DLC it was previously confirmed to be receiving. Well, according to the latest trailer for the game, this seems to be false (and Amazon seems to be spouting misinformation).
