Batman: Arkham Origins is being developed by WB Montreal this go round and so far the game is looking like it will live up to the Arkham name. Now WB Games has announced that Arkham Origins will feature a multiplayer mode with a new twist.
3 vs. 3 vs. 2
One team will be headed up by The Joker while the other will be led by the massive Bane as they fight to control Gotham. The two in this equation are, of course, Batman and Nightwing who will try and take down both teams. Each team will have the latest in high tech equipment and weaponry to even the stakes against each other and The Dark Knight and his partner. They will have their own version of “Detective Mode” called “Enhanced Vision” which can only be used in thirty second intervals. Each team will also have the use of special attacks like Joker gift boxes which can be left as proximity mines.
Batman and Nightwing will have their usual set of goodies to use, but will need to be more cagey in their actions since their opponents are wielding guns and other high end weapons.
This sounds like it will be loads of fun and will definitely add a lot of hours to what I hope will be the next great game in this series. What do you think about the newly announced multiplayer mode? Is it something you are looking forward to?
