Are you tired of reading about Batman: Arkham Origins yet? If not, we’ve got six new images from the upcoming game, some of which are of actual gameplay (via Hero Complex). These new images reveal the Joker’s look for the game, confirmed to be voiced by BioShock Infinite voice actor Troy Baker. Other villains confirmed to appear in the game are Anarky, who appears to be filling the “Riddler” role from previous games, and Bane who is said to be “more like the comics.”
In addition WB Games Montreal revealed a new gameplay mechanic that allows players to recreate crimes at the scene with the ability to pause, fast-forward, and rewind. Another new detail is that while “Origins” takes place several years before the previous Arkham games, there’s a five year span between “Arkham Asylum” and “Arkham City,” leaving plenty of potential room to explore in the future.
