Batman: Arkham Origins Complete Edition spotted in the wild

Arkham Oranges

Patience is a virtue, was something my father would often say before he defenestrated the person driving in front of him for being so slow on the road. And that’s an adage which applies to gaming, as the big name titles from the previous year often wind up back on the shelves in a new repackaged form. Like Batman: Arkham Origins for instance.

Much like the Arkham Asylum and Arkham City games that came before it, Arkham Origins is wrapping up the entire game with all the DLC released thus far into one premium edition package. Minus all the gaudy “Game Of The Year” embellishments that is. AGB caught a screenshot of the supposed cover art on ze German Amazon website, which looks legit enough to me:

Arkham Oranges complete edition Arkham Oranges complete edition (2) Arkham Oranges complete edition (3)

So what kind of DLC did Arkham Oranges have? Well at a glance, here’s a list of the various batsuits that were available as pre-order bonuses:

  • Batman Long Halloween
  • Dark Knight of the Round Table
  • First Appearance (1939)
  • Red Son
  • Noel
  • New 52
  • Blackest Night
  • 2006-2008 Tim Drake Robin
  • Earth 2 Dark Knight
  • Thrillkiller
  • 1989-2006 Classic Tim Drake Robin

And on the more substantial side, there was also the Deathstroke Challenge maps that allowed you to play as the fan-favourite assassin, more maps within which to flex some caped crusader muscle and some substantial DLC in the form of Initiation and the recent Mr Freeze centric Cold cold heart.

Arkham Origins was still a big disappointment to me last year. While the majority of the game bugs have been sorted out, the core controls felt like they were missing certain subtleties when compared to the Rocksteady Arkham games, while various other problems plagued what felt like a rushed game from Warner Bros Montreal.

Still, it had a cracker story at least.

  1. It irritates me when I buy a game on sale & then a couple of days later they announce a complete version or even worse, additional DLC.

      Totally agree. It’s as if we are being trained to NOT buy games in the first year of release. I can see this is obviously a plan designed by PC Masterbaters who have to wait at least a year before ‘new’ games are released…

        Yea, verily thou speak true!

        Also, it wasn’t RELEASED on PC now, I just BOUGHT it now 😛

        Zinged with a typo & factually incorrect.

            It’ll be okay. Maybe try some coffee?

            Much like your face, that makes no sense. And my coffee was supported by 2 doughnuts this morning so NAH!

            I suppose if you speak drivel as often as you there wouldn’t be a need to no. 😉

            That would sound much better if your previous comment didn’t revolve around you remembering said drivel lol.

      I purposefully did not buy Origins for this exact reason. That and I am yet to complete Asylum and City, got GOTY editions.

    Is it just me or are some of those batsuits listed twice?
    Or maybe they are just that awesome?

    What irked me most about Oranges was Deathstroke was only in the game for one fight. Yes it was centered around Bane and Joker but still.

    So better to wait a year, in this case about 5 of them, before buying a game…

      Maybe all the bugs will be fixed by then.

    In other (significantly more surprising) news, I now own Dark Souls on Steam. 😀
    It’s downloading and will hopefully be finished by the time I get home.

      Make sure to get the dsfix mod from the DS Nexus, otherwise the game looks terrible.

      Other than that you are in for a frustrating, infuriating, controller-breaking, good time.

          Awesome man. As @disqus_DoEH3TsffU:disqus says make sure you get the mod as the controls are ported from the Xbox (at least my brother’s edition was). Frustrating game, so much awesome 🙂

            Got a PS3 controller, a usb cable, software that allows it to be detected as a 360 controller and now the DSFix that Trevor recommended.

            Good. It’s a bit disconcerting when you’re playing & you have to press the yellow, red, green or blue button rather quickly & you can’t remember which one it is on the kb hehe.

            It’s just as bad when using a PS3 controller.
            You have to remember is X blue, green, red or yellow?
