Why Batman feels irrelevant in Arkham Origin's new multiplayer mode

Why Batman feels irrelevant in Arkham Origin's new multiplayer mode

Imagine, for a moment, that you're a thug in Joker's gang. Upon receiving word of a prison break at Arkham, you're dispatched to aid the rioters and pick up as many prisoners as possible. Just one problem: Batman is in the area too.



Batman. That one name ought to scare the hell out of any low-level supervillain mook. And sure enough, when you hear the familiar flutter of the cape behind you, your heart is pounding. But then... Batman misses. He hits the ground awkwardly, then turns around and starts running away. Hardly able to believe your luck, you raise your gun and promptly put a dozen bullets in the Dark Knight's back.

Batman: Arkham Origins has 3v3v2 multiplayer mode

Batman: Arkham Origins will have online multiplayer. You're now free to debate the merits of this decision.

The multiplayer portion of Origins is called "Invisible Predator Online," and is being co-developed by Splash Damage, best known for their work on Brink. In this competitive mode, a group of three Joker thugs will be fighting a group of three Bane thugs. However, there's a wrinkle in what would otherwise be a standard team deathmatch affair: Batman, of course.
