You'll discover the origins of Mr. Freeze in the latest DLC for last year’s Batman Arkham game.
Batman: Arkham Origins is set many years before the previous Arkham Asylum and Arkhram City titles, and sets the scene for how Batman came to be The Dark Knight we know him as today. The Cold, Cold Heart DLC carries on the game’s custom of establishing well-known characters, by laying out the story for Mr.Freeze, discovering exactly how one of Gotham City’s most notorious villains came to be.
The DLC brings with it a new story set on New Year’s Eve, and will introduce new locations including GothCorp and Wayne Manor, and you will see Victor Fries meet Batman for the first time.
Of course, Batman DLC wouldn’t be complete without some new gadgets to play with – this time around Bats will have access to Thermocharged Batarangs and Thermal Gloves, along with being suited up in his new Extreme Environment (XE) suit which will help to thwart Freeze and his Cryo-thugs.
Take a look at the chilling DLC screenshots below.
