After the release of Arkham City, and with developer Rocksteady clearly at the top of their game, it was a little bit surprising to see Warner Bros. take Batman off them and hand it to their own internal studio to pump out another one.
What’s not surprising — it turns out — is that when you hand a complete game engine and piles of game-ready assets to a developer and say “make another one of these”, you get… well, you get another Arkham game.
That’s what Arkham Origins is. That’s the bottom line, only I’m giving it to you at the top. Did you like Arkham City and Arkham Asylum? You will like Arkham Origins. If that’s all you care about, you can pretty much stop reading now.
Still with me? Good, because there’s more to it than that.
