New Gotham Wall?

Postby CrazyQuilt » Aug 5th, 2015, 3:28 pm

I've been replaying Arkham Origins and I still can't figure out why there is just a huge walled off portion of north Gotham. Is it supposed to be a factory or an industrial yard of some kind? I originally thought that Blackgate was inside the wall but after a look at the map of Blackgate it's obvious that it's not within the city. Does anyone have a solid answer as to what the giant wall is meant to be? If so please explain it's been bothering me since my first playthrough... :I

First of all, that's South Gotham.

Second of all, I can't figure that out for the life of me either.

Maybe WBM ran out of time and couldn't finish that portion of the map.

Yeah it's something that's always bugged me. Enigmas hideout is situated in the side of it but it must have had more purpose than that. I suppose it was just easier to leave it than replace it.

There's concept art for trident labs which could be what that area was.

I bet it had purpose at one point in regards to the story. One of the assassins leaving a trap perhaps. Maybe an encounter with Deathstroke prior to the one on the ship.
