I’m not a Batman fan, so to me ‘Mr Freeze’ just sounds very, very funny. But to those of you to whom this stuff is NOT a joke, it may be a relief or a disappointment (I really don’t know) to hear the chilly villain is to take center stage in the upcoming story add-on for Arkham Origins, titled Cold, Cold Heart. Keeping with the ‘origins’ theme, it looks like the DLC will give some backstory to this particular baddie: ” In this extensive story add-on, players will unearth the tragic origin story of Mr.Freeze and learn how he earned his role as one of Batman’s arch nemeses”, says publisher Warner Bros.
Set for a April 22nd release across all platforms, it’s also said to include a much younger Bruce Wayne at the beginning of his thug-punching career, and include new gadgets such as the Thermocharged Batarang and Thermal Gloves. Sorry, it still sounds funny to me. Bats will be punching and kicking his gravelly-voiced way through a variety of ‘icy landscapes’ and make plenty of returns to classic locations, namely Wayne Manor, all the while meeting some familiar faces along the way.
A trailer was released a few days ago and can be found here.
