The lights are on
As has become custom for the Arkham series, the PlayStation 3 version of Batman: Arkham Origins is getting a bit of additional, exclusive content. This time out, the bundle theme is the Knightfall story arc that saw Batman's back broken and his role filled by someone less restrained.
The pack comes with two skins (Classic TV Series Batman and Knightfall Batman), three combat maps, and two predator maps. You can see a trailer below.
Batman: Arkham Origins will be out on October 25, on Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

The classic Batman skin should have come with an add on feature where every time he hits someone in the challenge map, a different exclamation pops up on screen. "Pow!" "Zing!" "Boom!"
I just can't take the "Classic TV" skin seriously in the context of this game. My brain keeps adding big banners with "POW!" and "BAM!" to every hit. And ending a session would prompt something incorporating the "Same Bat-time, same Bat-channel."
They just had to add the Nolan trilogy two note theme (at least something very similar) at 1:30.
Pretty cool. Wish it were additional main campaign stuff though... (AKA more side missions and the like.)
This is awesome. I can't wait
Woo! Go Sony!
AAAWWWWWWWWWWWWW yiss Azrael!!!
Pretty cool and I love the throwback Batman uniform from TV, classic!!
I hope the Adam West costume comes with shark repellent.
Adam West should still be considered contribute his voice as Batman/Bruce Wayne whenever using TV Classic skin.
There are a lot of reasons I'm excited for this game, and this is just icing on the cake.
