I'm a huge fan of the past two Arkham-based Batman games and, needless to say, am looking quite forward to the release of the prequel game, Batman: Arkham Origins (available here for pre-order:Batman: Arkham Origins (Pre-order bonus includes $10 Amazon credit).
Michael McIntyre, the gameplay director for Warner Montreal, who must make the game or something like that, promises that fans of the Arkham franchise will be anything but disappointed with both the size of the map of Gotham (double the size of previous maps) and the boss fights. The prequel's finds Batman being hunted by 8 assassins chasing the bounty promised by the Black Mask. The Joker, Bane and Deathstroke all promise to give Batman-players varied challenges to keep moving on.
These games are full of challenges that make them playable beyond the straight story line and this one will surely be the same. This one's a no-brainer for me: can't wait
Batman: Arkham Origins (Pre-order bonus includes $10 Amazon credit) is available for pre-order now and will be out in stores October 25.
