First ‘Batman: Arkham Origins’ Gameplay Footage Arrives, Along With Knightfall And ’66 Costumes [Video]

Getting the jump on this week’s E3, WB Games Montréal has released the first gameplay trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins. The new gameplay vid expands on the game’s previously seen trailer and screen shots, and gives pending players a look at Bane, Deathstroke, Black Mask, Deadshot and the Joker in action (although Bane and Joker technically debuted in action figure form yesterday). Fans can also get a look at Batman’s new “Crime Scene system” and Remote Claw gadget… which, are kind of better than stuff he had in Arkham Asylum/Arkham City and make the whole prequel thing confusing, but whatever – it looks like it’s going to be pretty fun beating up a lot of famous villains for the first time as a young silvery-suited Batman! Handheld gamers will note that this trailer doesn’t give any insight into Batman: City Origins Blackgate, which is set to hit the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita alongside Arkham Origins on October 25, but perhaps E3 will yield more video later this week?


If the new video isn’t enough, Joystiq has discovered that the PlayStation 3 will receive DLC content based on the 1993-94 “Knightfall” storyline, which saw Bruce Wayne’s spine shattered at the hands of Bane… and a psycho bro with long hair take over for him in a rad armored costume with tons of thigh pouches. On the sunnier side, the righteous Batman ’66 suit will also be an option.


Batman: Arkham Origins is set for release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii U and PC.
