Here’s a bunch of new screenshots for the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins, showing off the Batcave, trusty man servant Alfred and the Mad Hatter about to have fist-based reconstructive dental surgery.

This is the first time that we’ll be seeing the Batcave in the Arkham series of games. The small hideaway near Arkham Asylum was an emergency bunker at best, while Arkham City had no such hideaway for the caped crusader. Here’s a synopsis of that classic secret base from Games TM via AGB:

Hanging like blackened teeth from the roof of the cave’s mouth, the sea of bats angrily disperses as the Batwing roars through the interior waterfall of Batman’s clandestine headquarters. The Batcave is a much larger expanse than the miniature proxy installed beneath Arkham Asylum in the first game.

Iconic vehicles stand like trophies on raised platforms, his wardrobe emerges from the thick metallic walkways – enabling player’s to switch bonus costumes between missions – and every inch drips with canny references placed for the eagle-eyed – which, aside from a glimpse of a newspaper cutting of the Red Hood spotted in Gotham, proves GamesTM certainly is not.

But it also serves as a practical base for Batman to upgrade equipment and polish abilities. The most notable addition being Challenge Maps, a separate feature of previous entries , now accessible from the Batcave.

Batman Arakham-slice Arkham Origins is out October 24.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
