Batman: Arkham Origins review coming in this Friday’s Official PlayStation Magazine

Wondering whether or not Warner Bros Montreal’s first crack at Batman can live up to the two Rocksteady games which preceded it? You’ll know this Friday, with Official PlayStation Magazine’s exclusive Batman Arkham Origin’s PS3 review.

Batman: Arkham Origins PS3 review

With worldwide visits from Saint Nick just around the corner (word is he’s one of the few people who not only played but also completed Haze – but then, he does have more spare time than most), we’ve produced a split run of covers for issue 90 (onsale 25 October), dedicated to two of this Chrimbo’s biggest games. Half of you will get Batman: Arkham Origins on the front of your mag; the other half will be greeted by Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag.

The Batman: Arkham Origins cover relates to our six-page review of Warner Bros Montreal‘s new game – the prequel to Arkham Asylum and Arkham City – which you can read in OPM before any other magazine.

As for Black Flag, we’ve got a ten-page hands-on with the PS4 version of the swashbuckling adventure, covering all aspects of its gameplay, as well as interview time with key members of the development team at Ubisoft Montreal.

There’s also a very special gift this month, which we’ll announce later in the week. For now, let’s just say we expect the mag to sell out in record time.

Once more, that date for your diary is Friday 25 October.
