Producer talks about “twists and turns” in the game…
Digital Spy recently spoke with senior producer for Batman: Arkham Origins, Ben Mattes, about The Joker's role in the game. Below are some highlights.
The game is due out on October 25.
Mattes on the significance of Joker's story arc in the game: "That's one of the things we want people to experience for themselves. He is in the game, obviously, and we're really excited for players to discover for themselves not just his role, but the role of lots of other characters. We've talked about many characters, but we haven't shown all of the twists and turns that they will be involved in over the story."
Mattes on making Black Mask the catalyst for the story: "We simply thought, 'Here's a character who's had a cameo in Arkham City and he's had little moments in the sun in some previous comic books', but we never really felt like he'd had his story, and we wanted to give him a chance to have his story. We felt like he's a character who has the potential to rise up. And because of his access to resources, he was the perfect catalyst for the story in Origins."
