HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
First off, it's OFFICIALLY 2014, so it's a brand new year with new hopes and dreams to pursue!
With that in mind, looks like fans of Batman and WB Games and DC Entertainment's epic Batman Arkham franchise are getting a treat sometime this year, as a NEW DLC story add-on is slated for release for the current Arkham prequel game, Batman: Arkham Origins!
More or less living up to their promise of giving an official announcement come New Year's Eve and New Year's Day itself, the official Batman Arkham Facebook page has teased that a "Humanitarian of the Year Awards" ceremony being held in Wayne Manor... And it looks like a certain "Cool Villain" will be crashing the party! If the ice doesn't tip you off, then you'd be wise to suspect that scientist Victor Fries will be crashing the party as his evil alter ego, Mr. Freeze! How will this fit into the scope of the Arkham Origins timeline? We'll find out soon enough as more announcements come as the year goes by!
Still, the chances of a brand new Arkham game being announced MAY happen somewhere down the line as well, and hopefully it'll bring Batman: The Animated Series voice actor Kevin Conroy back? We can only hope and pray that happens!
Batman: Arkham Origins is currently available for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC!
