I love all of the Arkham games, so this is still pretty exciting to me, but I just can't understand people (Alex included, apparently) who dismissed Origins as more of the same, and yet are pumped by this, which looks like more of the same... with a car.

PS4, Xbox One, PC. Just the way god intended.

Do we really need to keep "Arkham" in the title anymore? It's not enough anymore that it's a Batman game made by Rocksteady? It has to be an Arkham game? Oh well, I wait for game play to be shown.

Edited by Dark_Lord_Spam

Is this the game where they reveal that each Rocksteady game starred a different Batman, and then those three Batmans team up?

Edited by moregrammarplz

That was a nice little animated short. I wish it had told us some more about the actual game, though, other than Batman fights some dudes and there are Batman villains in it.

I skipped Origins as well, but I'm pretty interested in this on account that it's current gen only. This game could end up gorgeous with them focusing on using all the new tech

also, batmobile

Lookin good bats

Edited by Soap

That might be the coolest looking batmobile I've ever seen!

Yeah! Woo

Such Cinematic

I look forward to seeing what the game actually is some day.

Looks like I need to go out and buy a next gen console.

Edited by thebunnyhunter

Well that was nice but it didnt tell much. Is it a real open world Gotham and can i drive the batmobile

Posted by Cold_Wolven

Very interesting and like Alex I too am not feeling so bad for skipping Origins. Good to see it's only a next gen and PC release too.

nope

This city just can't catch a break.

Posted by TheThirdRLM

Wait, this isn't the companion one to Origins? There was supposed to be like a Vita companion to Origins, right!? AM I CRAZY!?

@joshwent: Never said I was "PUMPED" exactly, just implying that I've gone just long enough not having played a Batman game to want to play another Batman game.

This is the sequel to Arkham City that I was waiting for *possibly*.

Posted by sadsadsad

That's a nice Blur trailer.

Posted by charzar81

Wow. I'm back in, Rocksteady at the helm!

Posted by straightLOLLING

you'll prolly get to drive the batmobile

Posted by Veektarius

Wait, Batman's father dies?

Take my money. Just...take all my money.

Perfect time to do an "Arkham reveal steam sale" of the Arkham titles so I can pick up Origins on the cheap.

I know it might be a buggy experience, hence the waiting for a sale.

Posted by Transit3

Yes please

I haven't gotten to Origins yet. Is it worth playing? I loved the last two Arkhams and this new one looks to pick up where B:AC left off so I'm probably on board. Does Origins expand any story from the previous games or anything?

Posted by Jay_Ray

No PS3 or 360 version? One of the first 3rd party games exclusive to the new gen consoles?

Posted by cjdunn

Origins was a perfectly fine, checklist sort of sequel. I enjoyed myself.

All the characters look different in this CGI trailer. I do hope for consistent character models.

So... what happened to the rumored silver age Batman game?

Edited by Jay_Ray

Also Capt. Picard?

Posted by Pr1mus

The only thing that bothers me in that trailer is the pre-order DLC is already announced.

I mean of course there will be pre-order bonuses, that's just how things are now. I just don't want to know about it 7-8 months before release in the first reveal trailer.

This industry needs a healthy dose of class injected in it asap.

Yeah, totally fair. I think Origins was also dismissed, and reasonably so, for just coming out too soon after city. It just pains me a little because the story and boss fights in that one were really good, for me the best of the series, and regardless it just seems to be doomed as the black sheep.

Posted by charzar81

If this does indeed take place right after Arkham City, early odds on the main villain? Scarecrow? Hush?

Why does Harley Quinn look like Gabrielle from Xena, Warrior Princess? Does anyone else see it or am I just old?

Edited by Dimi3je

Looks neat, but I still wish they make another Asylum styled, tight, metroidvania game...

Edited by pinner458

That is one of the best trailers I've seen in a long long time. So glad I got a gaming PC last year!

Posted by LiquidPrince

@alex: Alex, Origins was by far the best Arkham game in terms of story. It was really really good, and it's a shame if you miss it. The character development of Batman and his rogues gallery was unparalleled. It helps that it also had some of the best boss fights around.

Posted by ADAMWD

Next gen only game. Could be a system seller.

Posted by Humanity

I'm forever saddened they keep screwing up Harleys outfit. It should be the red/black one piece unitard with the jester hat. They keep making her look like an Oktoberfest bar wench.

Posted by MosaicM80

Looks pretty damn good to me. Next Gen Only and made by Rocksteady? Sign me up!

Posted by LarryDavis

@joshwent: Origins was actually a better game than City, despite some bugs and issues like the shock gloves imbalancing combat. It had a better story, and it didn't have everyone making super creepy remarks about Catwoman and Harley. And calling them bitches like every 3 seconds.

But yeah, it got a bad rap for half of the map being reused from City.

Posted by Benny

Wait, this isn't the companion one to Origins? There was supposed to be like a Vita companion to Origins, right!? AM I CRAZY!?

nope, this is the one Kevin Conroy accidentally announced he was voicing Batman for months ago.

Posted by Th3irdEye

Wasn't Rocksteady's new game supposed to NOT be another Batman?

Posted by elko84

Harley Quinn does not look like Arkham City Harley. If this takes places after AC, the character models should be the same.

Posted by joshwent

Well, as the title implies, Origins is a prequel, so it doesn't expand on the story as it hasn't happened yet in that game. It's about Batman having to deal with a bounty being placed on his head on Christmas eve which has brought assassins from all over the world to collect. It narrows down into a much more personal story, though, which I thought was incredibly well done at the end. The boss fights, which I thought were the biggest weak points of Asylum and City (except for the amazing Mr. Freeze battle), are for the most part also creative and awesome, with a bigger focus on actually using the same moves you use in regular combat in unique ways.

It does feel like more of an expansive DLC than its own game, though, so if you go in with the right expectations, you should dig it.

Edited by Dan_CiTi

@thethirdrlm: You're crazy. Akrham Origins: Blackgate was the companion game to that, released on Vita and 3DS at the time of that game's launch.

Anyway, I hope this game really evolves the existing mechanics signficantly and more than the slight updates in the last game, and learns from all the full-fledged open world games of the last few years too in their depth and scope.

Arkham Corgi.

Posted by Raven10

That's a nice Blur trailer.

Is it bad that Blur has set such high standards for themselves that this type of awesome near photorealistic trailer is just expected from them these days. I feel like it would be big news if one of their trailers didn't look outstanding. That said, I thought the cape animation rocked in this trailer. Batman trailers I always feel are among their least impressive just because of the smaller scale of the series compared to some of the other stuff they do.

It's a good bet that Harley Quinn wants revenge.

Posted by therealminime

I am so ready for a proper Rocksteady Batman game. It being "next-gen" only is great. Origins did nothing for me.
