Fans of the Batman Arkham Origins game can look forward to a cool new DLC coming soon.
The new teaser image is an invitation to the “Humanitarian of the Year Awards,” a gala “honoring Gotham’s greatest” at Wayne Manor, home of Bruce Wayne, a.k.a. Batman. In one of the most famous episodes of “Batman: The Animated Series,” Gothcorp CEO Ferris Boyle is given the “Humanitarian Industrialist of The Year” award, only to be attacked by Mr. Freeze.
It turns out Boyle isn’t such a nice guy: he not only stole Victor Fries’ (Mr. Freeze’s real name) cryogenic formula, he also kicked him into a vat of chemicals, causing Freeze to change into his villainous form.
The story in the game is pretty much the same, with Boyle causing Freeze’s origin; something that’s revealed when you scan Freeze’s prison cell in “Arkham Asylum.” However, this is only revealed in a text bio, and we’ve never actually gotten to play the moment Batman stopped Freeze from killing Boyle, and sent the villain to Arkham.
