Batman: Arkham Origins hits this Friday. We’ve got a 17 minute video narrated by the Senior Producer Ben Mattes and Gameplay Director Michael McIntyre at WB Games Montréal. The game hits on Xbox 360, Wii U, PlayStation 3, and PC on October 25th Worldwide, as will Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate on the 3DS and Vita, but you can get your fix right now with Batman: Arkham Origins for iOS devices for free. (Sorry Android users) Here’s a nibble while we wait.

Developed by WB Games Montréal, Batman: Arkham Origins is based on DC Comics’ core Batman license and features an expanded Gotham City and introduces an original prequel storyline set several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City. Taking place before the rise of Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals, the game showcases a young and unrefined Batman as he faces a defining moment in his early career as a crime fighter that sets his path to becoming the Dark Knight. As the story unfolds, players will meet many important characters for the first time and forge key relationships.
