Let it snow, let it snow

Hot on the heels of last week’s desperately short Batman: Arkham Origins teaser, Warner Bros has released a full five minutes of CGI flavoured footage from the impending superhero epic. The trailer shows the Dark Knight battling Deathstroke, before turning its attention to new antagonist Black Mask. The publisher also released the game’s official box art, which we’ve handily embedded to the right.

According to Joystiq, the title will feature Roger Craig Smith in the lead role, who is perhaps best known for portraying Ezio Auditore in the Assassin’s Creed games, as well as Chris Redfield in Resident Evil 6, and, er, Sonic the Hedgehog. Meanwhile, The Last of Us star Troy Baker will assume the role of the Joker, while long-term Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy will also star in the game, though it’s not yet clear in what capacity. We’re guessing that he’ll be narrating the plot, which will comprise of flashbacks.

Those of you that pre-order the game will be able to play as Deathstroke in two new challenge maps. Are you looking forward to taking control of the Caped Crusader again? Let us know in the comments section below.
