A few days ago, WB Games released a short teaser for Arkham Origins and. today, they released the full trailer. The action-packed cinematic trailer showcases Batman squaring off against the assassin, Deathstroke, in some intense close quarters combat. It also gives us a little more insight into whom Batman is squaring off against in Arkham Origins.
The ruthless mob boss, Black Mask, appears to have put a price on Batman’s head. The main assassin pursuing Batman is Deathstroke but the sniper Deadshot also makes an appearance. Black Mask’s last line, “You had your chance, Deathstroke, but you’re not the only assassin in town,” suggests we will see a number of assassins seeking to claim the bounty.
We know Joker is already confirmed as the voice actor has been changed from the legendary Mark Hamill to Troy Baker, the voice of Booker in Bioshock Infinite. Batman’s Kevin Conroy has also been changed to Roger Craig Smith, the voice of Ezio in the Assassin’s Creed series. While I am admittedly disappointed with this change, it makes sense to change the voice actors for an origin story. At least the characters seem to be in good hands.
Deathstroke has been announced as a playable character in the series renowned challenge maps. Pre-ordering the game will give you exclusive access to two new maps and two skins for Deathstroke.
Batman: Arkham Origins releases on all current gen. systems on the 25th of October.
