Meet Copperhead. She’s athletic, she’s poisonous and she’s after The Bat’s blood.
That’s right, Copperhead is the latest villain to be announced for Batman: Arkham Origins. Although originally a man, the game takes the design from DC’s New 52 reboot which saw her rebooted as a female assassin. She joins The Joker, Bane, Black Mask, Deadshot and Deathstroke as confirmed enemies in the game. Apparently the motion capture required a martial artist and a Cirque de Soleil performer to perfect all of Copperhead’s moves.
Batman: Arkham Origins is being developed by Warner Bros. Montreal, although they are using the same engine as Rocksteady used for the first two Arkham games. It’s due for release on October 25th on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and PC.
