After rolling out a teaser to its trailer, Batman: Arkham Origins has rolled out its first official trailer. And dang if it’s not pretty, but we wish there was some gameplay footage in there.
Nonetheless, it’s still a pretty stunning piece of animation. Can we have all Batman movies like this, from now on?
The trailer features Batman, Deathstroke, Deadshot, Black Mask, and everybody’s favorite supervillain, Idiot Mook with Gun #2. Pretty much it’s five minutes of Batman and Deathstroke beating the crap out of each other, and the trailer makes it clear the fight happens early on the night of Christmas Eve. Those looking for cookies and shout-outs will be amused to see “Dixon Docks” and Queen Industries mentioned prominently in the trailer.
There’s also some other news that has leaked: Kevin Conroy will be returning to voice Bats, and Deathstroke will be a playable character, at least in DLC. So, if nothing else, Batman: Arkham Origins looks pretty promising on paper. Now, come on guys, how about some gameplay footage?
