Arkham City Rogue Trailers: Mr. Freeze
On the off-chance that Batman fans aren’t sick to death of YouTube, Rocksteady Games is pushing a new series of trailers featuring the villains of Batman: Arkham City, the sequel to wildly popular Arkham Asylum. This one features Mr. Freeze.
Batman: Arkham City will be released on October 21st on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
The game’s pre-promotion stumbled early, releasing Catwoman as a playable character, a concept fans loved, in the goggled costume from recent comics which fans hated. Soon after, they revealed a backstory which also seems drawn from an age of DC Comics that wallowed in a view of Gotham so bleak it was ludicrous. The backstory described at E3 was declared too dark and preposterous, and since then, it’s been a series of ill-timed stunts, such as this release of trailers during a week when Christopher Nolan’s filming of The Dark Knight Rises in Pittsburgh is flooding YouTube with footage of Batman and Bane fisticuffs, Catwoman-Batpod Batman-Batwing Tumbler chases through the streets of Gotham, and an epic f/x event at Gotham Stadium.
