Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment has released a new 17-minute gameplay walkthrough video for Batman: Arkham Origins.
The video features commentary from senior producer Ben Mattes and gameplay director Michael McIntyre at WB Games Montréal on the mechanics of the new title, highlighting the game's combat system and narrative.
Over the span of 17 minutes, viewers will see the Dark Knight explore the Batcave, beat down on thugs and infiltrate a corrupt Gotham City Police Department.
Developed by WB Games Montréal, Batman: Arkham Origins is based on DC Comics' core Batman license and features an expanded Gotham City and introduces an original prequel storyline set several years before the events of previous games Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City.
Taking place before the rise of Gotham City's most dangerous criminals, the game showcases a young and unrefined Batman as he faces a defining moment in his early career as a crime fighter that sets his path to becoming the Dark Knight.
As the story unfolds, players will meet many important characters for the first time and forge key relationships.
Batman: Arkham Origins will be released October 25 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and Windows PC.
