With the release of Batman: Arkham Origins ever approaching, Warner Bros. has unveiled a TV spot advertising the game that will be broadcast starting on October 19. In an unexpected twist, the ad features none of the fighting and action of the previous trailers. Instead, the commercial showcases Bruce Wayne's dark past in small, slow motion snippets of the events that shaped the future vigilante. At just under a minute, it's surprisingly touching and shows that WB Montréal may get more than just the gameplay right in the Dark Knight's upcoming game, which is a prequel to the previous titles in the franchise.
Batman: Arkham Origins comes out worldwide on October 25 for Xbox360, PS3, WiiU, and PC.
