Action figures show how villains will appear in Batman: Arkham Origins
We're starting to get an idea as to what characters / assassins are set to appear in Warner Bros. Montreal's upcoming prequel, Batman: Arkham Origins, but only a scant idea as to what most of them will look like.
A trailer that released earlier gave us an idea as to how Bane and the clown prince of crime will appear, but a leaked shot of action figures based on the characters' in-game appearance is providing a clearer picture. Seen above is the first collection of figures from DC, with more to come.
Most of the characters as don't differ too much from their other Arkham appearances. Black Mask, A.K.A., Roman Sionis, opts for a bright white three piece suit to help his black skull mask stand out that much more. Joker isn't quite as "dramatic," and Batman is...well, he's Batman. Bane's appearance is the most different, sleeker, not nearly the over bound mountain of muscle he was in the last two Arkham games. The characters are all roughly to scale of how they'll appear in game as well, Joker, Black Mask, and Batman all standing at 6.85 inches, while Bane stands head and shoulders above the rest at 8.25 inches.
Other villains to appear in the game include Deadshot, Deathstroke, the Scarecrow, and a few other familiar faces, as well as a few new ones to boot.
Batman: Arkham Origins stars a younger, not as experienced Batman we've seen in past Arkham games. The criminal Black Mask is offering a boatload of cash to whoever can kill the caped crusader. A number of hired killers are on the hunt, though not all have been revealed just yet. Batman carries his usual array of wonderful toys, with a few new ones thrown in for good measure, all to help Bats pummel thugs throughout a Gotham city that's almost double the size of the one seen in Arkham City.
Batman: Arkham Origins launches Oct. 25 on Windows PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U.
