It’s been 2 years since Batman: Arkham City was released. A game that many fans enjoyed and were left wanting more! Well good news for fans of The Dark Knight as Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment earlier today announced Batman: Arkham Origins and Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, the next installments of the blockbuster Batman: Arkham videogame franchise. Batman: Arkham Origins will be available for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 system, the Wii U™ system, and Windows PC. Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate will be available for the Nintendo 3DS handheld system, and PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system. Both titles are scheduled to release worldwide Oct. 25, 2013.
According to a press release the game will take place in an open world environment like “Arkham City” that spans into two areas, “Old Gotham” and “New Gotham.” New Gotham will feature classier areas with tall skyscrapers while Old Gotham will be the map from “Arkham City” prior to becoming an open prison. With the addition of “New Gotham,” the game’s map size has been doubled. There will also be ‘Crimes in progress’ side missions that players can choose to stop or ignore (as seen in previous superhero games). In addition, there is a ‘Most Wanted’ setting that will allow players to go after DC villains that aren’t integral to the main storyline.
