4w ago - Armature Studio Game Director Mark Pacini shared some Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate PS Vita tips and tricks today in video format below.
To quote: Hey everyone, Mark Pacini here, Game Director at Armature Studio for Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate. We have some videos highlighting our latest game on PS Vita.
Blackgate is a 2.5D Metroidvania take on the popular Batman: Arkham series. The game itself takes place three months after the events of Batman: Arkham Origins, where Batman is sent in to investigate a riot at Blackgate Prison.
We recorded several "Case Files" to both introduce people to the game, as well as give a few hints here and there. We want you to be able to get the most out of Blackgate, as we tried to pour as much variety and intensity into it as possible.
FreeFlow Combat is one of the core pillars of the Batman: Arkham franchise, and we've adapted FreeFlow Combat from the console editions of the games into the 2.5D perspective of Blackgate. We had specific challenges in bringing this combat into the 2.5D plane on a completely different game engine, while maintaining the feeling of "being Batman" in combat.
This video highlights the various combat encounters in the game, including the different thug types, as well...
8w ago - WB Games Montreal Narrative Designer Ryan Galletta announced today via Sony's Blog that Batman: Arkham Origins is officially out tomorrow on PS3!
To quote: This year, Christmas comes on October 25th when Batman: Arkham Origins launches on PS3. Just like the night before Christmas, the team at WB Games Montreal is staying up late, anxious and excited to see what the morning will bring.
Over the last two years, this team has worked incredibly hard, giving much of their lives to ensure that we honor the name "Batman."
We can't wait to show off our boss fights. In particular, Bane and Deathstroke are going to test your limits in brutal contest. We think Copperhead will come out of Arkham Origins as one of the coolest interpretations of the character.
And the team would be sadly disappointed for anyone who misses out on the Mad Hatter Most Wanted mission. Setting aside how beautiful the rest of the game looks, the art team went a little crazy there, and Peter MacNicol really knocks it out of the park as a very mad Hatter.
All in all, there's a massive playground for you to explore, and the team has made sure that there's a reason to visit every corner of it.
Batman's pain and anger will be channeled straight to the hairs on the back of your neck, thanks...
