Batman: Arkham Origins Multiplayer Details

WBIE announces details on multiplayer support in Batman: Arkham Origins, saying Splash Damage is developing this aspect of Ubisoft Montreal's upcoming stealth/action prequel. A bunch of Batmen duking it out makes no sense, and this is avoided in an asymmetrical design where some players are criminals engaged in a three-on-three third-person shooter battle, two players will also play as Batman and Robin, and once per match one criminal can take on the role of Bane or the Joker. There are hands-on previews of this showing up on places like GamesBeat, IGN, Kotaku, and Polygon. Here's a trailer showing this off, and here's the announcement:

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment today confirmed that Batman: Arkham Origins will ship with a mode that allows players to take the franchise’s award-winning gameplay online to play with friends and foes. The online component blends the traditional Arkham gameplay with third-person shooter mechanics and is in development by Splash Damage.

The online mode will be available for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC. The game is scheduled to launch worldwide Oct. 25, 2013.

The Batman: Arkham Origins Online mode offers players the chance to hunt as Batman or Robin against the most challenging opponents yet, friends and other gamers online. Players can also take on the role of a Super-Villain Elite and get a peek behind the curtain of what it’s like to side with The Joker or Bane as they establish their legacy by taking down Batman and Robin, and anyone else who gets in their way. Fans will even be able call in the ultimate reinforcement to help turn the tide in any match by playing as The Joker or Bane themselves.
