It's clearly the year of the prequel, between Tomb Raider, God of War: Ascension and Gears of War: Judgment getting stellar releases last month.  But we haven't seen anything yet, as the Caped Crusader will soon be getting a turn in the wayback machine.

Game Informer revealed its May cover, which is none other than the latest in Warner Bros.' Batman series titled Batman: Arkham Origins.  In the game, you'll play as a young, inexperienced Dark Knight as he fights his way through a group of adversaries on Christmas Eve.  Though the full list of villains hasn't been revealed yet, we do know that assassin Deathstroke will be included, and will pose quite the challenge for Batman.

The game is being developed by Warner Bros. games Montreal, instead of Rocksteady Games, the team that made the prior two games.  But don't worry, it's in good hands, as you can see in Game Informer's exclusive trailer.

Batman: Arkham Origins is set to unleash justice on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC on October 25th.  We'll have a first look for you very soon.  SWEAR TO ME!
