New Batman Arkham game drawing from Legends of the Dark Knight

Batman: Arkham Origins

By on April 18, 2013 at 4:37 pm

Warner Bros. Montreal have explained that the newly-revealed Batman: Arkham Origins is drawing heavily from the pages of Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight as inspiration.

“Legends of the Dark Knight represented really important stories for the Batman mythologies because every time Batman met someone, or encountered some idea in the world – for example, the Venom drug – it was the first time he’d ever run across it rather than the 80th time,” said creative director Eric Holmes to GameInformer.

“It’s a series that started in 1989 and followed in the wake of a big trend of going back in time to examine early career years, which I think was started primarily from Batman: Year One,” he said.

The game is due out this October, and for the first time in the series, will be developed by Warner Bros. Montreal rather than creators Rocksteady.
