Warner Bros is toying with the emotions of superhero gamers, with rumours and gossip surrounding the upcoming launch of Batman: Arkham Origins. First, we heard that voice actor Kevin Conroy would not be in the game. Then we heard he would, and now we’re hearing that he is in the game, but he’s not playing Batman. Here’s a new trailer to help you think about that.
Conroy announced at Dallas Comic Con over the weekend confirming that he would be involved in the WBIE prequel. Fans across the globe made an “ass” out of you and umption, and decided that meant he would be reprising his Arkham Asylum and Arkham City role as the Dark Knight himself.
…but then, Warner Bros stepped up and squished those rumours quicksmart, announcing that Sonic the Hedgehog voice Roger Craig Smith would be playing the young Bruce Wayne in Arkham Origins, opposite Troy Baker (Booker DeWitt from BioShock Infinite) as The Joker.
Meanwhile, as all of that’s going on, time carries on regardless, and Warner Bros announces that Deathstroke will be available in Batman: Arkham Origins as a fully playable character, available for fans who pre-order the game.
He’ll have his own unique weapons and special moves, and is playable in all challenge maps plus bringing two new ones of his own.
Batman: Arkham Origins – apparently complete with Roger Craig Smith, Troy Baker and Kevin Conroy – hits Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and PC from October 25, 2013.
