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.
