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.

Of course, it's kind of always a pretty big year for sequels, but in the past few months alone, we've gotten Grand Theft Auto V, Saints Row IV, Assassin's Creed: Stabbin' In The Pirate Times, a new Pokémon game, and more. For those of us who have a keen interest in seeing Batman punching people right smack in their big ol' stupid faces, however, there is one game that has been more anticipated than any other: Batman: Arkham Origins, the third installment of the series that began with 2009's Arkham Asylum.

After months (or, really, years) of buildup, Batman: Arkham Origins is hitting store shelves today.

Lots and lots of fightng.
