News: New Batman Arkham Origins Information

April 29, 2013

We have received new details about Batman: Arkham Origins:

Publications GamesMaster, Videogame, and NAG Magazine have revealed a new round of details about Batman: Arkham Origins. You can find a summary of their information below.

– Origins’ Batman is version 0.9 as opposed to Arkham City’s 5.0 Batman
– Warner Bros. Montreal feels it has made the coolest version of Deathstroke we’ve seen in media
– Important to make Batman scary again
– Thugs will show that they’re in awe of Batman and debate whether or not he’s human
– The team considered implementing robotic drones, but were cut since they didn’t want players involved with having to be defensive at all times during predator sections
– Gusts of wind from the dynamic weather system was considered as well, which saw thugs standing still and covering their eyes
– Idea was cut since it was difficult to control Batman
– Batman is impulsive, overconfident as he still has to encounter an opponent on par with his strength
– Batman is also clever, but doesn’t think of everything
– Ex: when interrogating a thug he can be dominated by violence and stun the thug before getting the information he wanted
– Batman will be affected psychologically by major difficulties he encounters during the game
– This changes him into the more realist and stoic Batman from the previous games
– Rupert Thorne is mentioned (as well as Falcone)
– Some of the 8 assassins will be side missions, and we will not be finished with them from the first encounter
– Unlock the location for the Batwing through an entire side mission
– For the mission, an unknown hacker has jammed the radio system and Batman needs to restore it
– New combat move: Batman can rush toward an enemy while knocking another one on his path
– Freeze boss fight from Arkham City is the main model for Origins boss fights
– According to NAG, Kevin Conroy will not be reprising his role as the Dark Knight in order to fit this younger version
