Batman: Arkham Origins

Batman Meets Deathstroke, Deadshot, And Black Mask In First Trailer

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.

  • Is there going to be a collector's edition? A statue of this Batman and Deathstroke would be legit.

  • Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaammmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn. !!!!!!!!!

  • Love my job, since I've been bringing in $5600… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I'm making it online.(Click Home information)


  • I really hope we can see some gameplay demo on E3. This trailer is perfect.

  • That was unbelievably sick, can't wait for this!

  • Green Arrow in a Batman game... with Joker. Damn if that's true I'll have to get it.

  • OH MY GOD! The cinematics! Oh my god! This game looks amazing I am so excited. Also why has Deathstroke never been in a movie before he would have fit so well in the Dark Knight Trilogy.

  • This will be a nice Holiday treat for me!!!!!

  • i wish there was a whole movie done with this kinda cg work, looks amazing. I have to say though, i dont really like batman's face model this time around. somethings off about it. maybe its his chin lol.

  • Ok here's the part where I complain. Instead of shooting Slade, deadshot shoots his already broken sword (Slade even posed in his iron sights) and instead of shooting batman he shoots the container 2 stories above him. And I know he had a clear shot of batman, we all had a clear shot of batman actually. The trailer would have been more interesting if Deadshot actually shot batman leaving him wounded and the two fight over him. and as time goes by, more assassins would show up to claim the bats body. It would make perfect since if batman got injured, after all he is just starting out, a few rookie mistakes would add tension, and isn't the best batman a vulnerable one. they keep claiming that we'll be introduced to a more susceptible version of batman, but all I've seen is batman kicking everyone's @ss. How could this be an origin story if he's already 10 years in??? But all in all, good trailer
  • A W E S O M E !

  • I wonder if this will mean one-on-one fights.

  • This game looks amazing, I kinda hope Joker isnt to big a part in Arkham Origins, I'm pre ordering this for sure!

  • ZZZzzzz... Pre-rendered... Zzzzz... Trailers... *snort* what?!? what?! oh wake me up when the game actually looks like that.  Until then, don't care.

  • AWESOME trailer!

  • They need to make a whole movie like this.

  • The more that I hear about this game the greater my expectations rise. It should be great. The reports that Deathstroke will be a playable character via DLC is also a reason to get excited.

  • That trailer was ill.  I'm so psyched to play this game.

  • awsome!  hurry up October

  • Awesomeness in video format
