It's unfortunate Deathstroke's series was canceled, but it looks like Slade is getting plenty of love everywhere else. He's easily one of the cheapest characters in Injustice: Gods Among Us (spam those guns!), has a jaw-droppingly awesome statue on the way, and we know he'll be in the upcoming Batman game... but now it looks like he'll be playable, too! IGN posted a retailer listing on Amazon and it appears Slade will be yours to control. Based on the ad, you'll get "Playable Deathstroke DLC" with a pre-order.
Also, confidence in the game took a dive when it was reported Kevin Conroy wouldn't be involved, but Joystiq has pointed out the legendary voice of Batman says otherwise! Rejoice, friends! Lastly, the game's first full trailer will hit the web tomorrow and we'll definitely have it on the homepage!
Per Best Buy:
"Pre-order Batman: Arkham Origins now to play as Deathstroke — gain access to two additional challenge maps and two Deathstroke skins (Internet connection required for downloadable content; not available on all platforms)"
You can check out the full teaser trailer HERE.
The box art and some more screenshots were released as well.
Additionally, Joystiq has confirmed Conroy is not voicing Batman. Roger Craig Smith will voice the Dark Knight and Troy Baker will serve as the Joker.
