Warner Bros. Games Montreal’s Batman: Arkham Origins releases Friday, closing out this generation with one more bout in the Dark Knight’s boots before we close out this console generation.
To hype up the release, GamesHQMedia has thrown up a YouTube video featuring over 15 minutes of Origins gameplay, featuring commentary by senior producer Ben Mattes and gameplay director Michael McIntyre. The gameplay looks very similar to the now-classic Arkham City gameplay, which can only be a good thing. It’s worth a watch, especially if you’re still on the fence about picking up the game, which isn’t developed by the team that made Arkham Asylum and City such hits:
Arkham Origins is set early on in the career of the World’s Greatest Detective, who finds himself hunted on Christmas Eve. The criminal mastermind Black Mask has hired 12 deadly assassins to take out Batman for an enormous reward, meaning he’s got to stay on his toes if he wants to enjoy another year of Yuletide joy and defend Gotham City from the bloodthirsty mercenaries and their hordes of thugs.
Batman: Arkham Origins, developed by WB Games Montreal, releases Friday for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Windows.
