Full Trailer For BATMAN: ARKHAM ORIGINS
The first full trailer for WB Games Montréal's Batman: Arkham Origins. Plus, a ton of new game details and a look at the box art. Continue on for nearly 5-minutes of footage, featuring a younger Dark Knight crime-fighter. Be sure to check out our video games section for all the latest gaming news.
Courtesy of IGN, we also have some new game details. Roger Craig Smith, who has voiced Ezio from Assassin's Creed and Chris Redfield from Resident Evil will be voicing Batman, NOT Kevin Conroy. Either, the game will feature flashbacks and we'll have an older and younger Bruce Wayne in the game and therefore both Conroy and Smith or Conroy is actually working on RockSteady's Silver Age Justice League video game, not Origins.
The Joker is also confirmed to appear in the game but he's also voiced by a different actor, Troy Baker.
Other villains confirmed are Bane, Deadshot, Anarky, Black Mask, and of course Deathstroke. The box art also features Killer Croc and Penguin.

-Batman: Arkham Origins is a prequel story set during Batman's Second Year of crime-fighting. The story takes place on Christmas Eve night.
-Game developers have said that Batman is experienced but he's not the veteran crime-fighter from the first two games in the Batman: Arkham series. With the story taking place early in his career the Gotham City Police Department aren't quite sure what to make of Batman. And up till Christmas Eve, the Caped Crusader has only faced normal thugs and criminals. That all changes when Deathsroke the Terminator comes to town leading a band of mercenaries that have all been hired to kill the Batman.
-The game will include a fast travel system where Batman can summon his plane, the Batwing, to transport him to other areas of the game world quicker than gliding or grappling can allow.

- Paul Dini of Batman: The Animated Series fame also did not return as writer. The story is written by Dooma Wendschuch and Corey May who had input from Geoff Johns.
-There are unconfirmed rumors of multiplayer at this time.
- The soundtrack for the game was inspired by the 1988 action film Die Hard which also had a Christmas theme.
- Pre-order DLC will allow gamers to play as Deathstroke.
-Batman: Arkham Origins will be released October 25, 2013.
Developed by WB Games Montréal, Batman: Arkham Origins 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, the first two critically acclaimed games of the franchise. 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.
