New Batman: Arkham Origins Screen Reveals Barbara Gordon

What role with Commissioner Jim Gordon's daughter have in the game?

Yesterday there was a tease about a new character being added to Batman: Arkham Origins. Today, the identity had been revealed. It's Barbara Gordon.

Because of the time period the game takes place in, it's unclear what role she'll have. We'll have to wait and see if she's just a side character or will actually take on a bigger role in the story.

Other new screens have been released as well, mainly showing Batman in action.

Click to enlarge.

Batman: Arkham Origins is on sale October 25.

Wow, totally did not expect her to show up this soon in Batman's career (wasn't this game supposed to be in the first 3 years?). Based off of Alfred's words to Batman in a recent trailer I would have assumed it was even year one or two.

I thought she would have been Batgirl early on in her career.

I hope it's just bad lighting r something, but at first sh looked like an evil librarian. :3

I doubt she'll be showing up as Batgirl. They made that pretty clear at the SDCC this year. Wouldn't be surprised if they teased her future in some way though. I do really hope she shows up as Batgirl in challenge maps, that'd be awesome.

Great! Although I wonder how much we will actually see her in the game.

You mean to tell that SHE'S Barbara Gordon? Nice that she's in the game but looks more to me like Chucky from Child's Play lol.

I kinda don't like how she looks in this shot. She reminds me more of an arkham version of Carrie Kelly than Barbara.

I don't see what Dick Grayson ever saw in her lol.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who thought she kinda looks like him... definitely due to her eyes and the shading.

Make that three people. One look at that Chucky face and I even considered dropping the Batgirl title....

@k4tzm4n: Pretty sure there's going to more thinking of that, or something far worst lol.

Well now I know why we never saw her face in the past two games.

She always looks like either a lesbian or a busty model type. There is rarely ever any middle ground haha.

That said, her looking somewhat odd in one screenshot (where she's clearly engaged in an argument) hardly matters to me. Still super pumped for this game.

Lol just going by the picture but I don't think a set of DD's is going to help her here. I'm hoping it's just the screen shot she looks really bad in.

She looks like a 60-year-old bag lady who spends her time swearing at pigeons.

she probably has a extremely small part

I know right?....i havent seen any "women" of the game,and i assumed they would be nice,cause Bruce,Jim etc are awesome looking.....i was wrong.

Posted by Jayc1324

Not really excited for her being in this game unless we get to play as batgirl, which isnt going to happen. Why not tell us another assassin or villian? Anyways I am still extremely excited for this game.

Wow poor Babs :( !! My favorite DC Girl. Bad screencap to take WB.

I don't know why but DC video games have some horrible looking female designs. Wonder Woman and some other women characters in Injustice looks weird as hell.

@madeinbangladesh: Hey.....Selina and Harley in the Arkham games are spontanious.....

Edited by cobra88king8

They like tying Barbara to Bat's early days

Posted by Dabee

She's Oracle in the later games... I wonder if it will end with Joker shooting her... (Only a spoiler if you haven't read Killing Joke)
