The lights are on
Fans have often questioned what a multiplayer scenario for the Arkham series might look like. Today, we get our first look at three-team competitive play for Batman: Arkham Origins.
In the trailer below, we see three-man teams led by Bane and Joker facing off. But there's a twist. Batman and Robin are on the scene, making for interesting asymmetrical action.
The criminals seem to use a variety of gadgets and guns, with the dynamic duo having access to grapnel guns, batarangs, cape gliding, and in Robin's case, a staff. The multiplayer mode is being developed by Splash Damage, who most recently released the ambitious, but flawed, Brink. Batman: Arkham Origins arrives on October 25, 2013, for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC.
The online mode will not be available on Wii U.

Looks amazing. Man the Wii U is still missing out.
Holy Crap! Awesome!
Wow... I definitely had this reserved for the Wii U. Looks like I'm going to have to switch it over to the PS3 unfortinately. That's just a dumb & poor decision to leave out online.
My heart just exploded from excitement. I think I will pre-order this later on today. Btw the way Bane looks awesome.
