Part of the hook of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City was that they put Batman in difficult environments, separate from a workable base of operations (though he did have a sort of mini-Batcave in Asylum).

It looks like WB Games Montreal's new Batman: Arkham Origins will change that up a bit. New screens show that the Batcave will be in the game, though it's not totally clear yet whether it'll be a playable environment or just available in cutscenes. Check out an early look at the Batcave and some high-kicking action after the cut.

The Batcave also appeared in Arkham City, but only as a DLC combat map. No word on whether it will be a prominent location in the handheld Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate as well.

Arkham Origins is out for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC October 25.
