- WB Games Montreal Narrative Designer Ryan Galletta
announced today via Sony's Blog that Batman: Arkham Origins is officially out tomorrow on PS3!
To quote: This year, Christmas comes on October 25th when Batman: Arkham Origins launches on PS3. Just like the night before Christmas, the team at WB Games Montreal is staying up late, anxious and excited to see what the morning will bring.
Over the last two years, this team has worked incredibly hard, giving much of their lives to ensure that we honor the name "Batman."
We can't wait to show off our boss fights. In particular, Bane and Deathstroke are going to test your limits in brutal contest. We think Copperhead will come out of Arkham Origins as one of the coolest interpretations of the character.
And the team would be sadly disappointed for anyone who misses out on the Mad Hatter Most Wanted mission. Setting aside how beautiful the rest of the game looks, the art team went a little crazy there, and Peter MacNicol really knocks it out of the park as a very mad Hatter.
All in all, there's a massive playground for you to explore, and the team has made sure that there's a reason to visit every corner of it.
Batman's pain and anger will be channeled straight to the hairs on the back of your neck, thanks to Roger's impeccable delivery. Troy's Joker will make you cringe and gasp for all the right reasons. And Brian Bloom's Black Mask?
His vicious rage is palpable. Our cinematics and story team brought these performances to life with energy and emotion in every scene. This story is a roller coaster. You can almost hear the click, click, click, as it winds itself up - when it lets loose, you're in for quite a ride.
We are at the end of a generation. This year has seen some incredible games come to PlayStation, and we're excited to say... Batman is coming.
Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate on PS Vita is a sprawling 2.5D platforming adventure that brings the signature "Arkham" style gameplay to handheld gamers.
