The first screenshots from Batman: Arkham Origins hit the web this morning. In addition to showing Batman cleaning up Gotham, the shots (via Game Informer) reveal a few of the villains that the Dark Knight will encounter in this prequel.

Deathstroke, whose inclusion in the game was announced yesterday, is fighting Batman one-on-one in a shot. Several of the images star Black Mask, the crime lord with creepy distinctive headgear. The third and final villain on display here is Penguin, who's about to taser someone.

The earliest report about Arkham 3 suggested that the game would feature Batman and the Joker's first encounter. That seems like a safe bet; the Joker played such a pivotal role in the first two Arkham games that he almost needs to be in Origins. He doesn't necessarily have to be the main villain of the game, though. Origins might just show how the Joker became the Joker.

Origins will launch in October on the Xbox 360, PS3, PC and Wii U. It will be accompanied by a handheld game, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate, in development at Armature Studio.
