Warner Bros. have today revealed Batman: Arkham Origins, a prequel to Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. The game will be developed by Warner Bros. Montreal, who are taking over from the original creators at Rocksteady, but will be using the same modified Unreal Engine that the first two games have run on.
Arkham Origins will take place years before the events of Asylum, when a “young, unrefined Batman encounters many supervillains for the first time”. The lead designer of Prototype and The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction is heading up the project, and Deathstroke can be seen on the wraparound GameInformer cover for the title.
Batman: Arkham Origins will launch on October 25.
