Posted by The Daily Zombies Wednesday, October 23, 2013

With the release date of the much-anticipated Batman: Arkham Origins mere days away, The Daily Zombies takes a final look at the last slew of trailers and clips, as well as the announcement trailer of a mobile iteration of the upcoming prequel of the critically acclaimed Batman video game series now taken over by Warner Bros. Games Montreal. 

Being big fans of the critically acclaimed Batman video game series (2009's Batman: Arkham Asylum and 2011's Batman: Arkham City) developed by Rocksteady Studios, the announcement of Warner Bros. Games Montreal taking over with the upcoming prequel was met with initial disdain from us here at The Daily Zombies.  Thankfully, any remaining negative energy soon disintegrated with each glimpses we had at Batman: Arkham Origins. From the announcement of the title, the first trailer, the gameplay trailer, and the most recent "Nowhere To Run" trailer, we have been following the much-anticipated title keenly. With the release of Arkham Origins mere days away on this Friday, we take a look at the recently-released clips from the marketing effort of Warner Bros.

First up, hit the jump for the freshly-released final launch trailer entitled "Personal Mission".

Next up, a moving and effective TV spot chronicling Bruce Wayne's tragic and inspiring transformation from a sad, helpless child to The Dark Knight.

Witnessed enough of the cinematic trailers and wondering how the title hold itself gameplay-wise? Here's a gameplay running at 17 minutes giving you a good sense of how the Caped Crusader is played in the title.

We know that Deathstroke is a playable character in this one some time back but here's a good look at how the deadly mercenary can be played.

In this clip, have a good look at how the exclusive PS3 Knightfall Pack Trailer.

Lastly, probably to no one' surprise, the mobile version (available on iOS and Android platforms) of the title has been announced and here's it plays like on Smart Phones, thanks to NetherRealm Studio, the same developer that gave us the mobile edition of Injustice: God Among Us.

The trailer for the spin-off handheld title, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate.

And here's the official synopsis of the title:

The events of ARKHAM ORIGINS are set several years before BATMAN: ARKHAM ASYLUM, in the middle of winter in fictional Gotham City. Batman is an experienced crime-fighter, but has not yet become the veteran superhero portrayed in Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. He remains a mysterious force with even the police unsure if he is a vigilante, a myth or supernatural. Batman has battled with normal criminals and gangsters and is used to being stronger and faster than his targets, but on a snowy Christmas eve he is confronted with far more dangerous enemies: super villains tasked with killing Batman. The sadistic and brutal Black Mask has placed a bounty on the superhero, and Batman must discover why the villain harbors a deep hatred for him.

Black Mask is the most powerful man in the city, possessing vast wealth and resources, and controls Gotham’s criminal underworld, having eliminated his opposition and begun consolidating his power. His mask conceals his identity, allowing him to operate publicly as Roman Sionis, head of Janus Cosmetics. Black Mask’s henchmen help instigate a rise in crime and gang activity in the city. The Gotham City Police Department, led by Commissioner Loeb, and Captain James Gordon are wary of the new superhero in their midst, and are not his allies with corrupt cops actively working against him.

Old Gotham, the segment of Gotham City which will become the Arkham City prison, is not yet walled off or ravaged by flood, and contains slums, lower buildings, a large shopping mall, and docks where Penguin’s ship The Final Offer is stationed. Across the bridge from Old Gotham is New Gotham, the more modern metropolitan area of the city filled with towering skyscrapers.

Batman: Arkham Origins is currently scheduled to be released on Wii U, Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 25, 2013. Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate will be released on PlayStation Vita and 3DS on the same day.
