Arkham Origins reveals online mode

Arkham Origins reveals online mode

Batman: Arkham Origins is getting a multiplayer mode. Developed by Splash Damage, the publisher says it blends the game's traditional gameplay with third-person shooter mechanics. The online mode allows players to choose between Batman or Robin and Super-Villain Elite. Playing as the latter will allow you to call reinforcement and play as The Joker or Bane.

"Blends the game's traditional gameplay with third-person shooter mechanics."

Ugh...why?

While the last thing i felt the batman games needed was a MP mode (certainly not a third person shooter MP mode) this does seem kinda cool. Almost a spies vs mercs uneven teams thing going on. Hopefully bats and robin arn't too over powered. They should be fast, agile, hard to spot, but weak...kinda like the aliens in AVP games, or like the spies in spies vs mercs.

Yea , MP wasn't needed in this game ....

Should just make a batman and robin co-op game throughout.. leave the whole batman gears of war thing.

Wonder if the wii-u version will come out cheaper given you're getting less game for your buck with it

got the first two on PC wont pick this up though, no Hamilton as joker and don't like where they gone with this game, instead trying do something new they just suck it dry and do prequels and shit, they should put there time to another super hero

Well Mark Hamill said that Arkham City willl be the last time when he's voicing Joker and besides Troy Baker is actually doing a great job as the new voice actor. The thing that bothers me in this game is that Batman's gadgets are way to hi-tech for a prequel.

About the game


What's up?

    KORNdog even rare, as shitty as they've become have so many IP's they can draw from as pure fan service, that would boost the brand a ton. a new conker? a new perfect dark? a new banjo (a real one)? (42 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i miss the days when xbox had exclusives like doom 3. riddick. voodoo vince. blood wake. jade empire, KOTOR, morrowind, galleon, jet set radio, republic commando... fuck it, even blinx the cat. (45 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog they need fresh blood so to speak. and they need to support them, not send them out to die. and not turn their back on them entirely just because they sold .5 million less than their expectations. (48 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but they can't do that by releasing more versions of the same game. uncharted isn't going to sell a PS4 to someone who hates uncharted. but gravity rush might? maybe last guardian? maybe spiderman? (51 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog right now i think it's safe to say MS has fully catered to their own fanbase. but now they need to draw in new players to increase their userbase. (52 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog generally though they need more studio's making various titles of various budgets instead of 3 studio's making the same 3 AAA games over and over again. (53 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: generally yeah. i mean, MS need their next gears of war-level success, even if it just becomes an annualized addition to their usual games. but it would be something. (55 minutes ago)
