For most, last minute shopping is the most stressful part of Christmas Eve, but Batman has other things to worry about after Black Mask puts a bounty on his head. Naturally, anarchy breaks out and the who's who of assassins descend upon Gotham City.

The Batman: Arkham Origins launch trailer showcases plenty of the style of combat that we've come to expect from the Batman franchise, perhaps in a bid to reassure fans that Warner Bros. Games Montreal doesn't plan to stray far from a winning formula. There's plenty of action in general along with a sneak peek at the more sedate, yet improved, Detective Mode as Batman works out what has unfolded in a particular area.

Batman: Arkham Origins will be released on Oct. 25 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii U.
