Batman: Arkham Origins DLC launch trailer

Cold cold heart stewart

Darryn has been telling us all about the new DLC coming to Batman: Arkham Origins. Cold, Cold Heart looks to add all those things to the game that he originally griped weren’t present. Now we have a launch trailer to gawk at, and it sorta makes me want to get the game now.

Okay, before Arnie played him in that atrocious movie I didn’t really know too much about Mr. Freeze. But the more recent interpretations of his character have been darker and, um, cooler than before. For the game, we already heard details of the story, learned there would be new bat-toys, and heard about the Bat’s new suit. The launch trailer shows off all those things, and more:

For the non-video inclined among you, it starts with a stunning rendition of Auld Lang Syne, interspersed with scenes of Mr Freeze making his cold entrance. This is followed by impressive scenes of Batman’s XE suit and a glowing red Batarang, as well as some cool combat scenes. It’s all quite action packed and seems to add the new types of gameplay that Darryn said were originally lack from Origins.

I’m glad to see that the expansion is looking so good, although I’m curious if all the bugs Darryn also experience in the core game have been squashed. It’s great to see such a cool DLC that adds a new suit, tools and presumably combat mechanisms. However, I still think fans of the franchise are way more excited for Rocksteady’s return with Batman: Arkham Knight. At least this DLC should keep fans satisfied until we can hear more about that game.

    Kirsten Stewart can easily play Mr. Freeze’s wife in an upcoming Batman movie. She will be frozen in a block of ice the entire movie anyways. Even if they defrost her,her movement and voice would be perfect for someone waking up from a cryogenic sleep.

      I used to love Kirsten Stewart. I thought she nailed Bella in Twilight perfectly. Then I saw that Snowman movie. Sorry Snow White and the Huntsman. Then I realized that is the only way she knows how to act!
      Though her wooden performance in that movie may have been the result of the director’s uhm… wood she sampled during filming.

            Twilight for men is just like scooters for men.

            OK. Look. I’m sorry your upbringing left you with a skewed idea of what manliness is.
            I am also very sorry that I do not have blue balls hanging from the tow bar of my Hilux bakkie, that I hate rugby and think beer is horrible.
            I am also really sorry for the five Tinker Bell movies I own and love. If it makes you feel better, I have squashed them in between my extensive Arnie/Sly collection. In fact, I think they are squashed in between The Expendables 2 and Predator!

            I am also really sorry for the five Tinker Bell movies you own and love and watch too often. If it makes you feel better, I know you have squashed them in between your extensive Arnie/Sly collection. In fact, I’m sure they are squashed in between The Expendables 2 and Predator!

            Just kidding man. Point being that relationships are worth it. After the initial Armageddon that’s ones life after a break up it takes a while to realize to good outweighs the bad

    I read somewhere that there are bugs in the game and they decided not to fix the bugs but only work on the new DLC? If this is the case then that is just wrong.

      If some commentators elsewhere on the site are to be believed, bugs are a feature…

      Yup – no bug fixes. Just more DLC… Kinda what put me off this game. I have it… Just not sure I wanna finish it! It’s gathering dust in my cupboard of amazement…

      I’d rather wait for Arkham Knight.

    “The team is currently working hard on the upcoming story DLC and there currently are no plans for releasing another patch to address the issues that have been reported on the forums.

    If we do move forward with creating a new patch, it will try to address the progression blocking bugs for players, not the minor glitches that do not prevent one from continuing to play. The issues that are not progression blockers will unfortunately no longer be addressed.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused for some of you, and want to thank you for having been patient.”

    REMEMBER THE DAYS WHEN GAMERS LOOKED FOR THIS SEAL?
    The seal of QA on the box is needed now more than ever.

    Games now cost the same as a 1-2 weeks supply of fuel.

    I want QA.
