I still need to buy Arkham Origins, hopefully the Game of the Year edition comes out soon. Love this franchise and will miss it once it is over.

This trailer felt underwhelming. How about some new villains like Killer Moth, KGBeast, Cat Man, & Man-Bat?

I too am waiting for the Game of the Year edition for the Origins game. Whilst I like these Batman games I think they need to start making them compelling and different from each other. Given the rate at which they are being released people may get a little bored of the same formula like with Assassin's Creed.

I get that Gremlin as I was a crazy loon for Arkham City but then all that DLC came out and I broke my rule of keeping up with it and now I won't do that again. Its why I won't buy any Rockstar game unless it is a Game of the Year edition as they release too much and it gets so expensive.

@EmP: I want Man-Bat in this game so bad...

@Gremlin and JackalsIII: I'd almost recommend not getting Arkham Origins. It was perfectly good and the Joker bits and the Copperhead and Deathstroke boss fights were pretty good (especially Deathstroke's) but the rest of the game was underwhelming. That being said some things in that game could have an impact on this one.

I really hope we get some new villains and another playable character. (Robin or Nightwing preferrably although a well done playable section as Barbara Gordon/Oracle would also be really cool.)

For new villains I'd like: Man-Bat, Maxie Zeus, Cluemaster( replacing Riddler maybe?) and Ratcatcher, The Court of the Owls (maybe)

Returning will be: Penguin, Harley, Two Face, Scarecrow

Other loose ends that could show up: The League of Assassins, Azrael and the Order of St Dumas, Hush, Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Killer Croc, Zzasz, Black Mask, Bane, the rest of the assassins from Arkham Origins.

A driveable Batmobile is definitely a step in the right direction but I hope they don't use too many villains that we've fought before. That was something that really dragged Origins down. I'd say we'll get several secret societies showing up. I think Azrael and the Order of St. Dumas will definitely appear given the foreshadowing in Arkham City.

Gotham Knight is supposedly a new villain created by Geoff Johns. UGH!

Wings, another company made Origins, right? But with Rocksteady's blessing? That was my understanding. Wish there were more games like Arkham with superheroes. I heard Amazing Spider-Man was as close as a Spider-Man game will ever get to it.

I'm not sure how excited I am for this game. The Batmobile looks like it's going to be fun to drive. I'm not sure how I feel about the story though. After Arkham City, I was really excited to see Scarecrow's plan in action but now... I dunno. I was really disappointed they dropped Harley being pregnant in Harley Quinn's Revenge and Arkham Knight( the character) feels a bit generic to me. Their use of major villains coupled with the fact that Paul Dini isn't writing the game(I was wondering why the Penguin sounded off) isn't helping.

I like that Barbara is showing up but I bet the Manor is going to be used as some kind of evacuation point so I'm not expecting Alfred, Robin, Nightwing etc to show up.

Remember when McFarlane Toys had award-winning paint jobs? Arkham Knight Scarecrow doesn't. So I fixed that.
