There are no certain news about the music and composer for this year’s Batman: Arkham Origins. “Batman isn’t Batman until there’s music and lighting. Otherwise it’s a guy standing there in a costume and it looks like a convention”, says Eric Holmes, the creative director.
Given the Christmas setting one of the challenges was to incorporate the festive mood into the soundtrack. “One of our inspirations for that is Die Hard, which I think is one of the greatest movies ever made, but it’s also a Christmas movie, right? One thing they use in there is whenever McClane has an idea you hear the Christmas bells. So the moment for example when he has the two bullets left for his pistol and he knows Hans has his wife… then you see the Chirstmas tape and the camera punches in. You hear the same thing just before he sends the guy down the elevator… all of his ideas are little Christmas moments”.
About other playable characters: “No comment… One thing I can say is there’s no Robin at this part of the continuity. There’s no concept of Robin. Batman works alone,” says creative director Eric Holmes before adding “Who knows, perhaps the first egg may be laid…”.
We just have to wait a little longer to know something more.
