The upcoming video game prequel Batman: Arkham Origins will be introducing some longtime fan favorite characters into the series’ mythos. Black Mask is at the center of the plot and Deathstroke, Firefly, Copperhead, Deadshot, and Bane among others hot on Batman’s trail, it’s going to be a long night for Batman as the game unfolds. There is still a great deal of secrecy surrounding much of the game, with only five of Black Mask’s eight assassins officially revealed, but another has just been leaked.
IGN has managed to get their hands on the achievement list for the game and it reveals a few unconfirmed tidbits about the game, the least surprising of which is that the Riddler will once again be featured in the game along with his Riddler Trophies for players to collect. One thing that is pretty huge is the identity of the sixth assassin: Lady Shiva.
Lady Shiva is a martial arts grandmaster and one of the most talented combatants in the DC Universe. She is an assassin for hire who specializes in killing her targets with her bare hands.
What do you think of these characters in the game?
Batman: Arkham Origins will be available for the Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 25, 2013.
