"Batman: Arkham Origins" is a prequel to the 2009 video game "Batman: Arkham Asylum" and the 2011 "Batman: Arkham City." In this game, a younger, less experienced Bruce Wayne takes to the streets of Gotham on Christmas Eve to face off against a number of deadly assassins.

This trailer, entitled "Personal Mission," focuses on the Black Mask, a Gotham crime lord who appears to serve as the game's main villain.

"Batman: Arkham Origins" comes out Oct. 25 for PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U, priced at $60. The companion game “Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate” for the Nintendo 3DS and Sony PS Vita is $40 and releases on the same day. A mobile tie-in also called “Arkham Origins” is currently available for free on iOS.
