Plus, the voice actors behind Batman and Joker.

Following last Thursday’s teaser trailer, Warner Bros. Games has released the full, nearly five-minute long trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins, coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, and PS Vita and 3DS via a side-scrolling sequel, this October.

The studio also confirmed the game’s key voice actors. Batman will be voiced by Roger Craig Smith, known for Ezio in Assassin’s Creed and Chris Redfield in Resident Evil, and his nemesis Joker by Troy Baker, whose most recent role was Booker DeWitt in BioShock Infinite.

Additionally, the game’s box art reveals that pre-orders for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC versions include Deathstroke as a playable character, as well as two challenge maps and skins.

Watch the trailer below. View new screenshots and box art at the gallery.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    This was a cool trailer. Let’s hope the game delivers.

    As for the trailer, awesome. :3 Curious about the Metroidvania game though.

    • KingNigma

      He could be voicing someone else (most likely) or even be talking about Rocksteady’s next bat game or an older batman could be making an appearance (the latter two I doubt but who knows).

        Can be the the VA in the other game for 3DS/Vita Arkham Asylum Blackgate.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Blackgate takes place in the same time period as Arkham Origins (it starts after the ending of AO), so that wouldn’t make sense. Especially since he said the game he’s working on isn’t coming this fall and Blackgate is coming at the same time as AO.

    Chris and Jake!!!!!!!!

    I was hoping they’d get the VA that played Slade in Teen Titans ;(

    Whoa. I’m impressed. Now let’s see some gameplay. :D

  • Always No. 9

    I am not a fan of the Batman franchise (though I have played Arkham Asylum & City, which were very good)……..but wow! That was quite the awesome trailer. The animation and presentation, magnifique……………but will the gameplay be good too?……..we’ll see……we’ll see. #9

    Feels like I just watched a trailer for a movie! Definitely hyped for this one now!!

    • Zero

      Agreed. That trailer was bad ass!

    So Troy is Joker… I’ll need to hear his laughter first before deciding how I should feel about this. I mean, the guy is a great voice actor and all but… Joker… that is quite a challenging role, man.

  • Tetsu

    I wonder why they made the jump to CG cutscenes? Hmmmm.

    Looks promising though, If they can get gameplay like that i’m way on-board.

      It’s just a promotional video. Arkham City had one, too.
