It is Christmas Eve and there has been a jailbreak at Blackgate prison and the escaped inmates are causing mayhem in Gotham City. When Batman intervenes he is confronted by Killer Croc, who has been hired as an assassin to take out Batman. After confronting Killer Croc, Batman quickly learns that there are eight assassins after Batman and the $50 million bounty on his head.
You explore Old-Gotham along with the main city from the other games. While exploring you'll work to track down Black Mask, the criminal mastermind who placed the bounty on Batman. This introduces a new Enhanced Detective Mode, where you'll reconstruct crime scenes to solve different crimes and catch Gotham's Most Wanted for unique upgrades.
Like other games in the series, Arkham Origins offers a Challenge mode. However, the game introduces a new "1 versus 100" challenge where you battle 100 increasingly difficult enemies.
Rated for younger players in the US. Rated ESRB TEEN for blood, drug reference, language, mild suggestive themes, violence. During murder-investigation scenes, short animations depict various stages of the crimes (e.g., a victim's head slammed onto a table; a character getting shot). A handful of scenes depict corpses on the ground, hanging on walls, or arranged in strange poses; some of these scenes depict bloodstains on the floor. During the course of the game, the camera pans on a villain briefly groping the posterior of a female character. The game depicts drug packets in one scene, and several characters discuss illegal narcotics and drug charges. The words “sh*t,” “a*s,” and “*!@?*” appear in the dialogue.
13+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. You need to have the skill to navigate a relatively open world as well as take on tough brawls. There is some puzzle-solving, but the main thing here is the resilience to hunt down missions and work through series of objectives.
