Batman Arkham Origins

Check Out The First Half-Hour Of The New ‘Arkham Origins’ DLC, ‘Cold, Cold Heart’ [Video]

Batman Arkham Origins Cold Cold Heart DLC

Remember how a big chunk of the game map was frozen and icy in Arkham City? The new DLC for Batman: Arkham Origins"Cold, Cold Heart" extends that idea a bit, with the ice seemingly extending throughout the city as Penguin and Mr. Freeze terrorize the landscape on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC (but not the Wii) on April 22.

A leaked video reveals the first half hour of the DLC, the first Arkham DLC that actually adds single-player, storyline-driven gameplay instead of challenge packs and multiplayer maps. Much of it takes place in Wayne Manor as Bruce Wayne charges to the Batcave to pick up his batsuit. (Another toyetic iceproof costume shows up later.)

DC’s ‘Batman: Arkham Origins’ MultiVerse Graphic Novel App: Choosing The Wrong Adventure

BATMAN- ARKHAM ORIGINS - A DC Comics MultiVerse Graphic Novel
DC Comics

Yesterday DC Comics launched its new Batman: Arkham Origins - A DC Comics MultiVerse Graphic Novel app, which serves as a choose-your-own-adventure style motion comic prequel to WB Games Montreal's video game of the same name. Befitting of its status as a video game tie-in, this is a "freemium" experience. You download a free 8-page setup before reaching a fork in the narrative road and pay more (it's being serialized, you see) for the full range of story content as it's released. As a bonus, readers who pay to read halfway through the story get a code to unlock a new playable skin in the Origins game. Those who pay for a season pass get the first skin, plus an additional costume for Batman to wear.

In an interview with Wired, Hank Kanalz, SVP of Integrated Publishing at DC Comics, characterized the effort as an experiment. Financially, this model could prove to be a success -- especially with its downloadable content (DLC) incentives for hardcore gamers. Creatively? So far it leaves something to be desired.

If you wanted a few more origins in Batman: Arkham Origins, seven bucks will get you just that tomorrow.

The new "Initiation" DLC joins up with Bruce Wayne before he became Batman, as he travels through the Paektu-San Mountains of North Korea and tries out his martial arts moves in a bamboo forest, a monastery and two other new challenge maps. It looks about as close as fans can get to playing the League of Shadows scenes from Batman Begins, even if it's storyline is more akin to Batman's comics continuity.
