The next game in the Batman: Arkham series has been revealed as Arkhan Origins and will feature on Game Informer’s next cover. Developed by Warner Bros. Montreal instead of Rocksteady Studios, the game will serve as a prequel to both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City and will show Batman encountering many of his foes. Arkham Origins will be released on PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii U on October 25.
Warner Bros. Games Montreal has taken the mantle of the bat from Rocksteady Studios this time around for Batman: Arkham Origins. WB Montreal has full access to Rocksteady’s custom modified Unreal engine to capture the look and feel of the Arkhamverse. As the title suggests, the game takes place years before both of the previous Arkham titles when a young, unrefined Batman encounters many supervillains for the first time. On our full cover image below, fans will recognize the assassin Deathstroke, who appears for the very first time in a core Arkham game.
Heading up the vision for Arkham Origins is creative director Eric Holmes, known for being the lead designer of open world action hits The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction and Prototype. A self-professed lover of comics, Holmes even wrote the miniseries Transformers: Megatron Origin for IDW.
Gamers won’t have to wait long to experience Batman’s lastest adventure. Batman: Arkham Origins releases October 25, 2013 on Wii U, Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
