A launch trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins – titled Personal Mission – has swooped out of the shadows, bringing with it all the BIFF, POW and SOCKO you could hope for.

It’s two minutes of footage which mostly shows our man Bats breaking arms and legs, kicking people through furniture, and generally just being a bit of a nuisance. It’s not hard to see why so many people want to stop him… and that’s pretty much the theme of this trailer, with antagonist Black Mask repeatedly stating that he’s made it his personal mission to track down Batman and kill him. Which explains the trailer’s name, I suppose.

Batman: Arkham Origins is out this Friday, on 25 October. We’re not expecting review code until then, so our review will likely pop up early next week. As ever, we’d recommend holding off on any purchases until we’ve given it a good going over, but I know what you lot are like when it comes to Batman.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
