Batman: Arkham Origins – Official Trailer

Check out the official trailer for latest Batman game Arkham Origins.

The game 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.

Well what do you think buy, rent or avoid?

Update: Ok so I watched the mini bat movie…well that’s what it was and yes it looked great and Batman was very bad ass and all that with lots of cool moves and slow mo but you what WB? You could have saved yourself god knows how much cash by JUST SHOWING ME SOME BLOODY GAMEPLAY! I know it’s still early days yet but it would have been so much cooler for me as gamer looking to part with his cash to see some of what the new game will look like running. I don’t know maybe there’s not enough of it to show anything yet and I know this is the trend for games now to show these expensive intro trailers but seriously I would have been happy with thirty second of gameplay footage instead.

In short 5/5 for a great little cgi film (please just go the whole hog and do an Arkham 30 -60 minute film using the same animation as I can’t argue about how good it looked) but 1/5 for actually giving me anything useful about the actual game beyond ‘an expanded Gotham City’ in the blurb. Still its hard not to get excited after watching the trailer and the other two games  were brilliant so I’ve got my fingers crossed this is third time in a row.
