Check out the website and more on the plot below:
Check out the official website http://www.batmanarkhamorigins.com/
Eight of the best assassins in the world have come to Gotham City for one night, Christmas Eve of all nights, to kill the Bat.The eight assassins are lured to Gotham by the villain Black Mask (who we briefly saw in the Robin DLC for “Arkham City”), who is offering a substantial reward for Batman’s head. The assassins will also be joined by crooked cops in the GCPD looking to cash in on the reward.
The game will take place in an open world environment like “Arkham City” that spans into two areas, “Old Gotham” and “New Gotham.” New Gotham will feature classier areas with tall skyscrapers while Old Gotham will be the map from “Arkham City” prior to becoming an open prison. With the addition of “New Gotham,” the game’s map size has been doubled. There will also be ‘Crimes in progress’ side missions that players can choose to stop or ignore (as seen in previous superhero games). In addition, there is a ‘Most Wanted’ setting that will allow players to go after DC villains that aren’t integral to the main storyline.
