The lights are on
If there's one thing that we learned from our month of Batman: Arkham Origins coverage, is that our readership is extremely excited to return to Gotham City. If you've been keeping up with our previews, you know that the story's villian, Black Mask, has tasked a number of assassins to bring down The Dark Knight.
In this first trailer, we see Batman square off in a lengthy battle with Deathstroke. We also get a feel for how Black Mask is motivating his paid hitmen. Let's just say the rivalries aren't friendly.
The trailer also confirms Deathstroke as a playable character. It's not clear yet if he's structured like Catwoman's Arkham City missions, a set of challenge missions, or something completely different. And be sure to look for the clever nod to Green Arrow (could this be a hint?).
Batman: Arkham Origins is coming to PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U on October 25. You can catch up with the stories and videos from our full month of coverage, and read a new preview that just went live today.

I so cant wait for this game.
OMG. This looks freaking awesome. I want it right now.
That was sooooooooo much fun to watch, can't wait to play it.
The incredibleness of that trailer and Rocksteady's trust in WB Montreal to pull off a great game just made me want to pre-order this game
I can only imagine how awesome Physx is going to be with all that snow. PC FTW
Amazing footage. A big part of me is kinda disappointed that it wasn't in-game footage, so this is probably gonna be a lie about what the game really is, unless this IS in-game, in which case I'll be shocked. Too bad we didn't get to hear Batman's voice.
With a trailer that awesome, I feel like sprinting to the nearest Gamestop to preorder it.
Where is the Green Arrow nod?
HOLY S$%*! this trailer was frickin beyond awesome! I love it! it looks grittier than AC and that was pretty gritty. with Black Mask and Deathstroke this might be the hardest T rated game ever! Im so excited for this!
What a great trailer, looked really spectacular.
That trailer got me SOOOOOO amped on this game. Deathstroke was waaaayyyyy too sick.
I've been kind of wary of this game and the trend of developers outsourcing IP's, but at this point they've got me. After all of GI's coverage the past month, and finally this trailer, it's clear as crystal to me these guys understand and love what Batman is.
So this game is taking place in Gotham and Star CIty and Green Arrow will probably be playable is what im getting from this trailer(all the queen industries stuff and the bridge at the end with the star on it is Star City)
Shut up and take my money!
I guess I should be excited for this, but I am.
Doubts being replaced with cautious optimisim...
Holy crap, that was an awesome trailer!
