Emotional ad for Batman: Arkham Origins

Emotional Batman advert brings tears to eyes of gamers

EVEN the most hardened criminal would shed a tear watching the latest advertisement for an upcoming Batman video game.

The latest advert for the anticipated Batman: Arkham Origins was released online today.

The emotionally charged clip sums up Bruce Wayne's journey from childhood to the Dark Knight in 51 seconds.

It's earned wide-spread praise on social media website Twitter as well as Reddit.

@GoKarinaLynn wrote 'That one Arkham Origins trailer gives me the chills. I love you Bruce Wayne."

"Incredible, this 53 second teaser says so much, wordlessly. Good to be a Batman fan," wrote @BenAveryHunt.

Developed by WB Games Montréal, Batman: Arkham Origins is based on DC Comics' core Batman license and features an expanded Gotham City and introduces an original prequel storyline set several years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City.

Taking place before the rise of Gotham City's most dangerous criminals, the game showcases a young and unrefined Batman as he faces a defining moment in his early career as a crime fighter that sets his path to becoming the Dark Knight.

Batman: Arkham Origins will be released on the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and Windows PC on October 25.

A free-to-play mobile game of the same name was made available in the Apple App Store for iPad, iPhone and iPod today.
