The release of the hotly anticipated sequel, Batman: Arkham City is edging closer and closer so it’s safe to say that we are a little excited to say the least. Adding to the excitement has been the smart revelations from developers Rocksteady Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive and now a new trailer introducing Mr. Freeze has been revealed.
The cold hearted scientist, Dr. Victor Fries is the latest in the long list of characters that have been confirmed to feature in the game, to be revealed. He is one of the Dark Knight’s most well-known rivals and the fact that the developers have decided to include him in the game shows they intend on making up for a lack of villains in their previous Batman title Arkham Asylum.
In a recent article, we brought our readers a list of the characters that had been revealed so far and also the ones that have been confirmed but not yet revealed, Mr. Freeze was one of them. The article also asked our readers which other characters they would like to see feature in the game.
From the trailer, which we have embedded courtesy of YouTube, we can see that Freeze intends to use Batman undoubtedly to benefit his research. It seems to be set in some sort of lab which soon becomes an icy lair as the Caped Crusader refuses to cooperate and a battle breaks out between the two characters. There is also an exchange of some classic one-liners like ‘Today is not a good day to push me Victor.’
As the battle commences it looks to be a hide and seek type fight, where players must avoid being seen or else risk being fired at, similar to the fight with Vulcan Raven in Metal Gear Solid. Check out the video below to see the new villain in all his glory for yourself. Are you glad Mr. Freeze is in the new game? Is there anyone else you are hoping to see make an appearance?
