At San Diego Comic-Con today, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced a new villain for the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins – Copperhead.
The Copperhead in the game takes after the female version of the character present in The New 52, and is one of eight assassins present in Batman: Arkham Origins. Check out the reveal trailer below to see Copperhead in action.
From the trailer it’s apparent that Copperhead and Batman have already met, though Batman seemingly met his match during her acrobatic combat. We can also see how she can fit into incredibly tight spaces, which opens up avenues for a lot of gameplay variances – having to watch every vent, nook, and cranny to stay alert and make sure she isn’t creeping up on you. We’ve yet to see how else Copperhead fits into the overall story, but at the rate Warner Bros. is drip-feeding us information, it doesn’t seem like we’ll find out for a while yet.
Check out some more screenshots below, and stay tuned for more Batman: Arkham Origins news. The game releases worldwide on October 25th.
