New Arkham Origins details revealed

New details of Batman Arkham Origins have been revealed at Comic Con during a panel taking place about the title.

Speaking on the panel was DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, WB Games Montreal Creative Director, Eric Holmes, the voice of Origins’ Batman, Roger Craig Smith, and voice of Joker, Troy Baker. Blackgate’s director, Mark Pacini, was also present. 

During the panel it was revealed that Robin will not be present in Arkham Origins as it is too early in the timeline, however it's possible that Batgirl could make an appearance. As for villains, Copperhead will be appearing in the game as one of the characters hunting down Batman.

As for the plot, it was revealed that the game will actually take place after the events of Arkham Origins. 

Finally, it was also revealed that we'll be seeing some Sony exclusive skins for Batman Arkham Origins which come in the form of Classic TV series and Knightfall costumes. Other skins revealed include the Worst Nightmare and Batman One Million costumes, although these aren't exclusive.

If you were waiting on a date then you'll be happy to know that Batman Arkham Origins will be released on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC on October 25. Arkham Origins Blackgate will release on PS Vita and 3DS around the same time.

Copperhead is a female in this, which is odd... didn't expect them to stray too far from canon. Batgirl sure as hell better not be in it, this is still rumour though

The game (Arkham Origins) will actually take place after the events of Arkham Origins. Wait, what?

Yeah, I was thinking the same. Is it meant to say Blackgate?
