About Batman Arkham Origins

About this game

Go back to the beginning with Batman: Arkham Origins from WB Games Montréal.

An Exciting Prequel

Batman: Arkham Origins offers a thrilling prequel narrative to the acclaimed Batman: Arkham series. Developed by WB Games Montréal, the game presents an expanded Gotham City, portraying an early-career Batman and his transformation into the renowned Dark Knight. The game's plot is set several years before Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, with Batman facing formidable assassins from the DC Comics Universe on a pivotal Christmas Eve.

Intriguing Gameplay

The game introduces innovative aspects, including an enhanced Detective Mode, allowing players to analyze crime reconstructions in real time. Gotham City's expanse is to be feared and protected by Batman, with players preventing crimes, battling new criminals, and exploring deadly locations. The game features new powerful gadgets, such as the Remote Claw and Concussion Detonator, which augment Batman's combat capabilities. New foes challenge players to experiment with the game's combat scenarios, promising an intriguing and diverse gameplay experience.

Familiar and New Encounters

Batman: Arkham Origins offers a fresh perspective on familiar characters, from Black Mask and Penguin to Deathstroke and Bane, with many more yet to be unveiled. A new online mode provides an immersive experience, blending traditional Arkham gameplay with third-person shooter mechanics. Players can choose to hunt as Batman or Robin against challenging online opponents or join The Joker or Bane's gang as a Super-Villain Elite.

Great entry in the Arkham series. Runs pretty well on Steam Deck, but does crash quite a bit.

I like how this game has a younger, grittier Batman. It feels good to have it on pc where I can get the best out of the graphics.

I think this game is one of the most unique games to ever release along with the series itself. It encompasses batman entirely and is a full improvement of Arkham asylum. It looks great, feels great, and is pretty challenging. Fighting sometimes gets repetitive during the boss fights however, when you figure out how they work, they tend to be pretty simple. Everything is like a puzzle in the world of Batman Origins, and I strongly suggest playing this to anyone who's even played the first game.

This game is okay. I’d recommend it to people who enjoy the Arkham games but go into it with the knowledge that the Devs are different and Origins is simply not as good as the rest of the series. It’s kind of fun and the story is decent. The side quests get very tedious and are both boring and debatably too short. There are far too many Enigma collectibles that have very little diversity in how they are collected so it’s very dull to get this side quest done. I think the game is worth a sale price and, honestly, I still think fondly of the Deathstroke boss fight. That’s a good time.
