Batman Arkham Origins Trailer

Here's a trailer showing off nearly five minutes of footage from Batman Arkham Origins, the next installment in the series of dark knight video games. The clip is all cinematics, showing the bat taking out a crew of henchmen in Jim Aparo-style ski masks before an encounter with a more worthy adversary (or two).

Wonder what other villains will be in the game. Could be cool to see Scarface and Firefly in action. The game's a prequel, so Hush won't be in it.

On a side note, I can't help but feel like this is just a quick cash-in while Rocksteady works on a proper sequel. Epic did the same with the latest Gears and Sony did the same with the latest God of War. That said, there have only been two Arkham games thus far so I can't complain too much about more of the same.

On another side note, Blur did a fantastic job with Black Mask's eyes. They really make him look like a psycho under that mask.

wow. Pretty impressive trailer. I really enjoy these, but I hope that they stop with the "investigation mode". Really takes away from the game when you spend 80% of it in that crappy visual mode.

Yeah, it's pretty derp, but the science behind it is solid. And even at the outside, it's not like you have to use it if you want to keep the tension up. In fact, that would be a great achievement. Play the game without using derp mode once.

I would love to watch 2 hours of this instead of another live action Batman movie. Too bad the CGI actually costs more.

I will admit it was an awesome trailer but at least throw in some gameplay footage. Also why does Batman have a bigger chin than Bill Cowher?

Dunno if it'll be a first day purchase yet, but we'll see depending on reviews. Still, it was a good trailer though.

Marketing is such a joke these days. These CGI trailers do not come cheap, and it cost way more to make one than to simply piece together 5 minutes of edited gameplay footage.

It's pretty awesome though. Best Batman trailer, or rather game trailer I've seen in a while.

Sometimes I watch these CG Animations and I can't help myself but to wish for a mini series of short CG films instead of a game, now this theory really works with most of the recent Star Wars games, haha

Agree with most--show me actual gameplay not CGI.

Arkham City did the same thing with a lengthy roof top fight cinematic before any gameplay was shown. Maybe it's tradition...

Would have preferred a clever trailer that is comprised entirely of in-game footage.

I'm trying hard not to be unnecessarily negative here. But what's the point of a 5 minute CGI trailer? How many millions of dollars did they waste on that?

It seems like that in the last few years, CGI trailers are reaching an absurd prevalence. They're the video form of a bullshot.

Hmmm... Black Mask and Deathstroke... With what sounds like the old voice actor for BM at least. I may have to eat my words if they can keep Rocksteady's gameplay going with a good story. But it's hard to tell from a CG trailer how the gameplay stands up.
