Batman: Arkham Origins "Cold, Cold Heart" DLC Preview

Posted by Jeff Penner Saturday, April 26, 2014
Batman: Arkham Origins releases a new DLC campaign "Cold, Cold Heart" for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on April 22, 2014. Pick this up if you need more original mapping (Wayne Manor) but not if you're looking for anything shocking and new.

The storyline for the campaign follows very close to a Batman: The Animated Series origin episode for Mr. Freeze, "Heart of Ice." If you are extremely familiar with the episode, this story will not introduce anything new to the mythos for you.

There is a new batsuit featured in the video and thermal gauntlets that appear to function the same as the shock gauntlets. Be careful of the new thugs carrying freeze rays, they'll get you if you stand still too long. However, you can use them against one another if you aim and dodge at just the right moment. You also get to play as Bruce Wayne and kick some butt in a suit. Check out the preview here with narration by Eric Holmes and Benoit Richer of Warner Bros. Interactive Montreal.

I wasn't all that impressed with some of the gameplay of Batman: Arkham Origins so I won't be downloading this DLC. The battle seems very similar to what we already went through with Mr. Freeze in Batman: Arkham City. I'm awaiting Batman: Gotham Knight this October, however, it looks like a darker take and use of the Batmobile certainly has my attention!

Was Origins universally disliked, or am I alone on this? Anyone going to grab this DLC?
