We’re still a few months away from knowing specifics about the upcoming prequel video game Batman: Arkham Origins, but some interesting rumors have begun to circulate regarding play modes in the game. Kotaku is reporting that one of their sources indicates there will be a form of multiplayer in the game. Specifically they say this:
“According to our tipster: during at least one section of multiplayer, you play as a member of Joker or Bane’s gang while trying to take down Batman and Robin. The villains involved—who may be playable and customizable—include Killer Croc, Deadshot, Firefly, Black Mask, Deathstroke, and “some kind of Electroman character.”
This is all, of course, simply rumors at this point, but the source that provided them with the information has been correct on other aspects of “Origins” prior to the official announcement. Take it with a grain of salt for now and check back here for when we get confirmation. If true, this confirms the inclusion of several key Batman characters in the game. What do you think of the rumors?
Batman: Arkham Origins will see eight of the best assassins in the world come to Gotham City for one night, Christmas Eve, to try and kill Batman. With even some of the Gotham’s finest turning against him, the prequel story will force the Dark Knight to forge relationships with characters for the first time and find out why so many want him dead.
Batman: Arkham Origins will be available for the Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 25, 2013.
