Batman: Arkham Origins Mr. Freeze DLC Trailer Released
A new trailer for the upcoming DLC for Batman: Arkham Origins has gone live courtesy of the DC All Access program that basically details all things DC Universe.
Sadly, you'll actually have to watch the whole thing if you want all the details, but the good part is that the teaser trailer for the Cold, Cold Heart DLC featuring the origin story of Mr. Freeze starts at the beginning of the episode. So you won't have to put in a lot of time with the seven minute video, but the content creators still get a click and some ad revenue since you watched it. Everyone wins.
As for the DLC... the video above doesn't do much to showcase what it's all about other than that some parts of Gotham look as if they've been doused with a bit of ice-cold freeze. This follows on the earlier indications that, of course, the DLC would indeed focus on Mr. Freeze.
Vice president of production, Ames Kirshen, briefly mentions that Alfred helps build Wayne a new suit in order to battle Freeze and his minions after realizing that his normal, 'roided up bat-suit just isn't getting the job done: he needs an extreme conditions 'roid suit.
The suit isn't based on any of the previous suits Batman donned to battle previous super villains, and it offers gamers a chance to get a look at the brand the new design when the DLC goes live for the game.
Now, as exciting as it is that new DLC is on the way – and best yet, it's story-oriented DLC that isn't a throwaway of mobile-game-quality cosmetics or a single challenge level that you'll beat in 10 minutes – it's a bit disheartening to know that Nintendo's Wii U won't be on the receiving end of the DLC.
This created a bit of a stir for anyone who bought the season pass for Arkham Origins on the Wii U, and prompted for some (light) refunds. The “demand” for DLC on the Wii U was just way too low and it just didn't justify, for Warner Bros., the time or money required to port the DLC to the Wii U.
On the upside, at least the system still received the game, right? I mean, Warner Bros., could have gone full-douche like a certain other company and completely cancel the game a few weeks from the gold master disc being printed. Of course, most companies know not to go full douche, because it can come back to bite you on the butt.
Anyway, gamers can look forward to the new DLC for Arkham Origins when it's ready to release. I haven't been keeping up with the official time stamps on DLC for this latest Batman game after getting burned with the DLC for Arkham City when GFWL decided to crap out on me and refused to save the game, resulting in me never being able to access the DLC. Thanks for nothing Games For Windows Live. I will cry tears of joy at your funeral on July 1st.
Anyway, you can learn more about Batman: Arkham Origins by paying a kind visit to the game's official website.
