Screens: Lose your mind over Batman: Arkham Origins

Batman-Arkham-Origins-Batman-Drops-On-Black-Mask-GoonsIt’s Christmas Eve. Rather than decking the halls with some ho ho hoes, Batman is up against eight assassins out to cash in the bounty on his head, generously donated by crime lord Black Mask. It’s Die Hard in Gotham. So much for a silent (dark) night.

With DC scribe Geoff Johns guiding the project and taking inspiration from Batman: Year One and Legends of the Dark Knight you can expect a rougher around the edges Caped Crusader constantly on the back foot and even doubting his abilities. It’s looking a treat thus far and while we’re stinging for more, these screens will have to do.

    “I’m Batman… errr… I mean, Deadshot”

    The obsessive compulsion to correct you comes out here as it happens to be Deathstroke and not Deadshot.

    Otherwise, them pictures is real purdy like.
