Games: Batman, Watch Dogs, Duty, Beyond

Batman: Arkham Origins
Warner Bros. Pictures has released new images from the upcoming prequel game “Batman: Arkham Origins”. Head over to SHH for the shots.

In sadder news though, voice actor Kevin Conroy will not be reprising the role in the game as the developer wanted “to use a new younger actor because the game features Batman in his early years.” [Source: full details]

Ubisoft have confirmed that ‘Watch_Dogs’, the year’s most anticipated game franchise launch title, will hit stores on November 19th in North America and on November 22nd in Europe.

The game will be released on the PS3, 360, Wii U, PC and will also be a launch title for both the PS4 and other next generation consoles (ie. the next Xbox). [Source: The Financial Post]

Call of Duty: Ghosts
A potential teaser for “Call of Duty: Ghosts” has appeared on the franchise’s official site with the full details to be revealed on May 1st. The image matches the mask of Simon ‘Ghost’ Riley, the British soldier last seen in “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2”.

The upcoming title will be using a next-generation engine, which suggests both a PS4 and next Xbox version will be released. [Source: IGN]

Beyond: Two Souls
In a surprising reveal, Quantic Dream head David Cage says their upcoming PS3 narrative-focused game “Beyond: Two Souls” will last for ten hours, about the same as their game “Heavy Rain”.

It’s estimated 75% of users who played “Heavy Rain” completed it, as compared with the 20% average of most games. This is due to its reliance on narrative. There’s also a new trailer out below. [Source:]
