Description

As of December 4, 2016, the online services portion of Batman: Arkham Origins will be retired. We thank those that have joined us to battle over the last 3 years.

Batman: Arkham Origins is the next installment in the blockbuster Batman: Arkham videogame franchise. Developed by WB Games Montréal, the game features an expanded Gotham City and introduces an original prequel storyline set several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, the first two critically acclaimed games of the franchise. 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.

Key Features:

  • The Arkham Story Begins: Batman: Arkham Origins features a pivotal tale set on Christmas Eve where Batman is hunted by eight of the deadliest assassins from the DC Comics Universe. Players become an early-career Batman as he encounters for the first time many of the characters that shape his future.
  • Enhanced Detective Mode: Think like Batman with an all-new Case File system that allows players to analyze seemingly impossible-to-solve crime reconstructions in real time. Combining Batman’s cowl sensors with the Batcomputer, players can digitally recreate crimes and study detailed simulation of the act as it happened.
  • Gotham City will learn to fear Batman: Take back the sprawling streets of Gotham years before its transformation into Arkham City. Glide above or battle your way through new and ever more dangerous districts in the quest for justice. Prevent crimes in progress, take down gangs of violent new criminals and explore deadly new locations, from the impoverished streets to the penthouses of Gotham’s wealthy.
  • Gotham’s Most Wanted: The city streets are filled with more than just Black Mask’s assassins. Locate and take down Gotham’s most violent and dangerous criminals to earn unique upgrades.
  • Lethal New Enemies: Fight new foes such as the Armored Enforcer, the Martial Artist and more – each of which challenge players to approach Batman’s FreeFlow Combat scenarios in different ways. Classic FreeFlow combat is expanded with every new opponent – and with Batman’s abilities to engage them.
  • New Gadgets: Utilize Batman’s signature gadgets or take advantage of powerful new additions such as the Remote Claw, the Concussion Detonator and more. Use the Remote Claw to create new routes by deploying strategic tightropes or directly attack enemies by stringing them up from vantage points. Ready the Concussion Detonator to stun and disorient groups of opponents in close combat.
  • New and Familiar Characters: Experience a fresh take on iconic Batman characters including Black Mask, Penguin, Deathstroke, Bane, Deadshot, Anarky, Captain Gordon, The Joker, Copperhead, Firefly and others yet to be revealed.

Best tie-in ever made. This is the prestigious recognition that the developers of Rocksteady have been awarded practically unanimously by critics and the public for their work with Batman, protagonist first of Arkham Asylum and then of Arkham City.

Take another deep dive as Bruce Wayne in Batman suit in thrilling action twisted rollercoaster. This time story takes before major events in Arkham history. Learn who are your new never seen before enemies.

Combat feels more refreshing and redefined as it should be. Controlls are more tight and responsive to hit mechanics. Love new takedowns and gadgets. Most amazing stuff was Power shock gloves whichs is abizmal overpowered. You can break a wall with them. With new gadgets there was new detective mini game wich is super cool. You examinating crime scene with you detective vision and analysing what happend in that place. Really really well done. You feel like detective in Batman role. This is by far the best done system in all four arkham games.

Story takes new roads while progressing to the end it felt to me more interesting. New enemies and bosses made it more fun to find out whats behind the black mask. This game takes yet another step to reshape boss battles. They are more interesting and innovative. Who can forget best fights against Deathstroke, Copperhead, Firefly and Mr.Freeze. The whole action takes in snowy winter night town. Liked the location so much cause it speaked to me.

Last words will be from me: unpopular take but I personally think this game is the best in Arkham series. I hope these developers will have another shot at making another Batman game in the future. 9/10

Such a underrated Arkham game, one of the best. The story is really well written and the map is incredible. Being able to move aroud in a different Arkham City it's really great. You'll find a lot of Batman vilains, the main one and some unknown to most of us.

Don't wait, just go play it, it's amazing

This has been a great journey so far! Maybe not as good as the other Arkham games but still a great game. I was skeptical at first when I found out that the voice actor changed for batman and joker for this game but I have to say the new ones did just as good a job.
  • good gameplay
  • minor bugs

I have always been a fan of Batman. This game's atmosphere reminds me of Christmas. I love it.
  • Better graphics than Arkham City.
  • Multiple enemies such as, Two-Face, Deathstroke and Penguin are live for the second time
  • Open World Game
  • Even a GT 440 with an Intel Core Duo can run this game
  • WB Games left the game with some bugs

funciona perfectamente y está siendo bastante buen juego, pero tuve problemas con el español castellano, me salía en latino, la solución fue buscar en archivos de Steam, lenguajes y borrar la carpeta de español latino, ir a steam preferencias del juego y cambiar el idioma.

Ok....there is a problem here. Maybe you thought this game is the previous part of Arkham City. Well ,is not. This game is the beggining of the Arkham Series. For example, Barbara Gordon, aka Oracle, is not in a wheel chair, and she's young(17 years). The line launcher is not even made, the Batmobile is ruined....And at the beggining, Batman did not know Joker at all...And Joker looks pretty well.....Harley Quinn is not a villan yet...but she meets the Joker....Play it and discover more. Buy it now!

Batman Arkham Origins è il terzo capitolo della serie di videogiochi Batman: Arkham. A differenza dei due predecessori questo titolo è stato sviluppato dalla Warner Bros. Games Montréal, che ha saputo ispirarsi, nel bene e nel male, ai primi due capitoli.

Storia
Batman Arkham Origins, come ci fa intuire il titolo, è ambientato prima degli altri due capitoli, dopo che Batman ha da poco iniziato a vigilare su Gotham. La trama è solida ed avvincente, ci porterà a conoscere buona parte dei personaggi del mondo di Batman alle loro origini. Sono state inserite anche molte missioni secondarie davvero ben sviluppate e interessanti che permettono di approfondire e conoscere meglio i vari "cattivi" di Gotham.

Grafica
Graficamente il gioco è davvero ad un buon livello, riesce a girare ad un buon dettaglio anche su macchine non di ultima generazione e potentissime. La città di Gotham è ben realizzata, e rispetto ai predecessori siamo sicuramente davanti ad un evoluzione visiva, non notevolissima ma comunque apprezzabile.

Gameplay
Sotto questo punto di vista non sono stati fatti grossi passi in avanti, sostanzialmente il gioco è rimasto invariato. Il combattimento che si basa su attacchi, schivate, combo, gadgets ha funzionato nei precedenti due giochi ed anche questa volta fa il suo sporco lavoro. Il sistema di esperienza adesso è basato sulla qualità del nostro combattimento, più serie di colpi riusciamo a sferrare e più punti esperienza andremo a prendere. La cosa che lascia perplessi sono i potenziamenti che si possono sbloccare con l'esperienza: quasi tutte abilità passive un pò prive di spessore, per non dire inutili.
Anche la città di Gotham, per quanto sia comunque ben fatta da un punto di vista grafico, risulta un pò spoglia e artefatta, completamente priva di vita se non per i criminali che la abitano. Certo non ci si poteva aspettare un GTA però diciamo che un pò più di vita e "calore" non avrebbero fatto male.
Ben fatta invece la modalità "detective" a cui in questo capitolo è stato dato più risalto con anche delle missioni secondarie dedicate davvero intriganti.

Audio e Localizzazione
Purtroppo ho avuto modo di giocare solo in lingua inglese, sicuramente il doppiaggio in questa lingua è davvero ottimo. La colonna sonora anche se non spicca particolarmente è comunque adatta allo stile "dark" del gioco.

Conclusioni
Se vi sono piaciuti i predecessori e siete fan del pipistrello più famoso del mondo, sicuramente non rimarrete delusi. Questo gioco sicuramente non brilla per innovazione ed originalità, ma riesce comunque ad essere divertente. La storia appassiona e fa stare incollati fino alla fine. Ottima la longevità grazie anche alle missioni secondarie ben curate.
Concludendo, la formula vincente del passato è stata riproposta e sicuramente non delude. Nessuna ventata di aria fresca purtroppo, anche se dei tentativi di cambiamento sono stati fatti non hanno centrato l'obiettivo.
