Game Informer is no stranger to exclusive features on pretty surprising announcements. Batman: Arkham Origins is no exception.
The game is coming out of Warner Bros. Games Montreal and precedes the former Rocksteady games; focusing on Batman’s first encounters with some classic foes (ex. Deathstroke). The presented setting of Gotham during Christmas time is certainly very intriguing.
It will be accompanied by a handheld game from Armature Studio, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate for the 3DS and Vita.
Keep an eye out for The Batman on October 25th for the 360, PS3, WiiU, & PC.

Update: Now another magazine is involved in the Bat-hullabaloo. OXM has some screenshots and art of snowy Gotham and villains such as Black Mask and ‘pre-glass bottle in the eye’ Penguin: Official Xbox Magazine
