A map of the explorable area of Gotham City in the game.

The video game Batman: Arkham Origins takes place in of its depiction of a portion of Gotham City. Set during Christmas Eve and 5 years before the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman, early on in his career, is being hunted by eight of the world's greatest assassins for a prize of $50,000,000. Batman encounters many of his well-known adversaries for the first time, including The Joker.



Gotham City's environment in Arkham Origins is set six years before the events of Batman: Arkham City on Christmas Eve, and shares both similarities and drastic differences with Arkham City's environment. The explorable portion of the city in the game consists of two islands: Old Gotham, a more older section of Gotham which will eventually become Arkham City, and New Gotham, a larger, wealthier, and modern section of Gotham filled with corporation buildings and towering skyscrapers. The two islands are separated by the large Gotham Pioneers Bridge.

Old Gotham contains many of Arkham City's districts and buildings, including a Park Row, Industrial District, a more intact Amusement Mile which has not yet been flooded, the Bowery, as well as Sheldon Park, an area in the center which eventually becomes the restricted section of Arkham City. Wonder Tower is located here. There are also some new locations included, such as the Gotham Merchants Bank in the Bowery, Dixon Docks and Penguin's ship, the Final Offer, in the Amusement Mile, and also various GCR towers located in each district of Gotham.

In New Gotham, there are three districts: the Diamond District, a majestic and wealthy part of Gotham consisting of tall, well-lit buildings and covered in Christmas decorations. Notable buildings here include the massive Royal Hotel, Gotham City Cinema, the Gotham News Building, and the Gotham City Daily. The second district in New Gotham is the Coventry area, which is a more industrial section of Gotham. Notable buildings here include Lacey Towers, and the Cale-Anderson building. The southern section of New Gotham has a more older-looking area, the Burnley district, which is filled mostly with smaller apartments, has accessible sewers running below it, and is also the home of the GCPD building and the headquarters of Enigma.

Both islands also have an inaccessible wall. In Old Gotham, a long watershed-like structure borders part of Sheldon Park and serves as the headquarters to Gotham City Light and Power. A small part of this area's interior is accessible. In New Gotham, a wall going along the west edge of Burnley and part of the south end of Coventry contains the headquarters for Gotham Rail.

Far south of New Gotham is Blackgate Prison, which is accessible only during the main story. The beginning and end sequences take place here, and the prison includes various corridors, an execution chamber, a Nexus, the Panopticon, a chapel, and a series of underground sewers.

During the events of the main game, the city was snowed in due to a severe blizzard, ensuring all but the crooks and Batman were prowling throughout the city. In addition, the weather report indicated that the snow accumulation is expected to exceed 400 inches.
