Overview

Batman: Arkham Origins will take place years before the two previous Arkham games and show off a younger and unrefined Batman as he squares off against many villains known from the comics for the very first time. Black Mask has hired eight assassins including Deathstroke, Deadshot, and Bane to kill Batman in Gotham City on Christmas Eve. Unlike the first two games in the series, which were developed by Rocksteady Studios, Origins was developed by WB Montréal.

The Freeflow combat from the earlier games returns and has been upgraded yet again. Gotham City's playable area is made up of Old Gotham, which is made up of the playable area from Batman: Arkham City, as well as an entirely original area called New Gotham, effectively doubling the size of the game world from the last game compared to according to WB Montréal.

A sequel game, Batman: Arkham Origins - Blackgate, is also coming out for 3DS and PSVita at the same time.

Supported Platforms Confusion

The box arts released with the press release and first prerendered trailer lack the DLC blurb on the WiiU for the UK versions, however, an Italian version of the WiiU box art does feature the DLC blurb on the box art. As of May 24, Amazon.com also listed the pre-order bonus DLC for the WiiU version and later on updated box arts on UK retailer websites appeared, featuring the DLC info. Warner Bros. finally confirmed the Deathstroke DLC for the Wii U version in early July.
