With Batman: Arkham Origins set to release this Friday, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is making one last marketing push, which includes this recently released launch trailer. Though it may not be as enticing as Monday’s 17 minute gameplay video, it is still a tantalizing piece of media that will surely whet your appetite as you wait for Friday to arrive.
Filled with a bunch of cinematics that feature Batman being a general badass as he tries to track down the game’s main villain, Black Mask, the trailer places a heavy focus on combat and also reveals a few story tidbits along the way. Throw in some choice quotes from various outlets and you have a perfect piece of marketing material that will no doubt hook many people who may have been on the fence up until now.
Though series creator Rocksteady is not involved this time around, the game still looks to retain all the elements that made Arkham Asylum and Arkham City so great. Personally, I loved those two games and even though I’m hearing that Origins isn’t quite up to par with its predecessors, you can bet that I’ll still be picking it up on day one.
Batman: Arkham Origins will swoop onto the PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U this Friday. Check out the launch trailer below and keep an eye out for our review.
