Preorder ‘Batman: Arkham Origins,’ Play As One-eyed Assassin Deathstroke

Don’t get too excited: while the sword-wielding Deathstroke will be playable in “Arkham Origins,” it’ll only be as part of the game’s Challenge Modes.

It would have been great if, like the Catwoman or Robin DLC in “Arkham City,” Deathstroke was given his own story missions to go along with his additional Challenge Mode levels, and who’s to say that’s not another announcement coming down the pipe. Currently, the character is the only one of eight assassins confirmed for “Batman: Arkham Origins” by developer WB Montreal. He’s been featured prominently in all of the marketing materials so far, although it would be interesting to see other killers from the DC Universe make their way into the game.
