Bigger city, new gadgets... the prequel line is kind of silly and it seems true that it's an excuse to continue using the Arkham name, but I don't care what they call it so long as there's a ton of gameplay, exploration, and moody music from the Warner Bros orchestra.
New villains: Black Mask, Deadshot, Anarky, Copperhead, Firefly, and more.
Warner Bros still has access to the Bat-encyclopedia, so I expect just as many nods to classic Bat-literature and media in addition to more easter eggs.
The launch trailer above doesn't exactly spell it out, so I thought I would. Looking forward to October 25th? Batman: Arkham Origins launches world wide on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, and PC this Friday.
