Batman: Arkham Origins Soundtrack Sheds Light on More Villains

The track listing for Batman: Arkham Origins has just gone up. Does it reveal another assassin or just a few more foes for Batman to handle?



Over on Amazon, the track list for Batman: Arkham Origins has been revealed. The score will be done by Christopher Drake, who has worked in the past on various DC Animated Movies: Batman: Under the Red Hood and Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths to name a few.  Here's the entire track listing:

1. Arkham Origins Main Titles     Christopher Drake     2:52

30. Shadow of the Bat     Christopher Drake     2:10         
31. Arkham Origins End Titles     Christopher Drake     1:49       
32. Arkham Origins Suite

 

Track listings that easily jump out to this reporter are tracks 4 and 5 dealing with Killer Croc, a character not revealed yet. Is he the first assassin? Or just another regular vllain to appear in the game ala Anarky, Penguin, and Joker? Originally, Killer Croc was a mob hitman and the last time that angle was used on the character was the Brian Azzarello/Eduardo Risso's  Batman: Broken City.

 

The other curious track is 23. The Thieving Magpie. Could this be in relation to the C-list Batman villain who has gotten a new audience thanks to the CGI cartoon Beware the Batman?  Who knows, but the operatic sample was easily my favorite of the bunch.

 

Batman: Arkham Origins the game drops on October 25, while Batman: Arkham Origins The Soundtrack hits stores on October 22.
