Batman Arkham New Year's Eve Announcement: Arkham Origins Story DLC to Revolve Around Mr. Freeze
No more teasing – the Batman Arkham special announcement has finally been revealed in a not so subtle image. Details are still forthcoming, but we now know what some people suspected – the upcoming Story DLC for Batman: Arkham Origins (part of the Season Pass) will focus on Dr. Victor Fries, otherwise known as Mr. Freeze.
Despite there only being a teaser image thus far, signs point to it following the storyline set forth in a Batman: The Animated Series episode entitled "Heart of Ice". In the episode, Mr. Freeze crashes the humanitarian awards gala shown in the previous two images. This makes sense in the scope of the Origins game because prior to the gala, Batman encounters Mr. Freeze for the first time – and as you probably know, this is a game about the forging of relationships.
Little else is known at the time, but it'll certainly be interesting to see how WB handles a Mr. Freeze boss fight this time around. While the boss fights in Origins were consistently better overall than either of the previous two games, the Mr. Freeze boss battle in Arkham City is still the best one to date – and maybe even the best boss battle of any game ever. No date has been set, except for the extremely vague and noncommittal 2014.
