After watching a new and awesome ad for Batman: Arkham Origins, I’ve officially changed my stance on the game. Whereas before I was thumbing my nose at it for not featuring the voice of Kevin Conroy (which the previous two Batman games in the series had) and raising a skeptical eyebrow due to the fact that the game is being developed by a different studio than the others, now I find myself pretty excited for it. The gameplay that we see in this little video walkthrough looks very true to the games that came before Origins, and the studio behind it seems to have nailed the gothy, snowy atmosphere that I liked in Arkham City. We’ll have to wait just a few more days to see if the game itself is any good, but things are looking promising from where I sit.
Batman: Arkham Origins comes out October 25, 2013.
