Batman: Arkham Origins has a lot of fans anxious as it’s the first game in the franchise not made by Rocksteady. The new developers at Warner Bros. Montreal assure us that they’re doing everything to make this prequel game just as good as Rocksteady’s previous efforts, but it’s hard to believe those kind of statements without actual gameplay footage to back it up.
Well, you asked and it has been granted to you as Warner Bros. Games has just shared nearly 17 minutes of Batman: Arkham Origins gameplay footage. With this, anxious fans can finally see just how WB Montreal has adapted the gameplay from Arkham City.
Just like in Arkham City, Arkham Origins is set in an open world. This is a pre-Arkham Asylum Gotham City so players can expect things to look a little different. Players can also visit the Batcave to make new gadgets, train, practice new battle tactics and more.
After watching this extensive gameplay preview, it’s pretty obvious that WB Montreal isn’t trying to dramatically change the formula. That should allay any fears that fans may have regarding the gameplay, but we still don’t know entirely what to expect from the entire narrative. Prequels are rarely ever good, but you can never count Batman out.
Batman: Arkham Origins launches October 25 for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC.
