Batman: Arkham Origins will release for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PC and Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate will launch for Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita on Oct. 25, Warner Bros. announced.

Developed by WB Games Montreal, Batman: Arkham Origins is a prequel set several years before the events of the previous hit titles Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City.

In the game, players will take on the role of a young and unrefined version of the Dark Knight. Batman will meet some of the game franchise’s key characters for the first time throughout the course of Batman: Arkham Origins. The game features an expanded version of Gotham City before the Batman’s infamous evil villains rose to prominence.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is 2.5-D adventure developed for mobile consoles by Armature Studio. The development studio was founded by members of the team responsible for the Metroid Prime trilogy.

The game is being developed as an extension to Batman: Arkham Origins and will continue the story of the console game as players learn more about Batman’s past. It will be the first time the Batman: Arkham franchise is released on handheld consoles.

Batman: Arkham Origins will be featured on the cover of the upcoming issue of Game Informer. The cover reveal includes an image of the assassin Deathstroke, a Batman enemy who will be making his first appearance in the video game franchise.

Rocksteady, who was in charge of development on the first two Batman: Arkham games, is not working on the latest installments of the series. However, many of the assets and technology used by Rocksteady are being used by WB Games Montreal to give the game the same look and feel as the previous titles. The dark, gritty tone will be recreated again with the same customized Unreal engine used by Rocksteady.
