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.

That blew my freaking mind.
Man, I DON'T like Slade's voice. I prefer his Injustice and Young Justice voices.
people get way to caught up in trailers...
I'm not a big fan on the new look of Batman. The suit isn't as great as the last installments. His face has an awfully awkward look to it, evne though this is just a CGI advert/cut scene kind of thing.
I guess I can make an allowance for the suit being this is the beginning of the Batman tale but regardless, I'll just say it doesn't look half as good as the recent suits looked.
I really wanted Deathstroke to be voiced by Ron Perlman from Teen Titans.
Very very very excited about this game!
I WANT....NO I NEED THIS GAME. Looks dope as hell.
