According to reports on Kotaku, the third instalment of the Arkham series, Batman: Arkham Origins, will include a multiplayer mode which will allow players to take on the role of the game’s villains.
Kotaku says that “two independent sources” contacted them, of which one of them had contacted them before with some “pre-reveal tips” about the game that proved to be accurate.
The report states that you will take control of Bane’s and the Joker’s goons. In at least one of the multiplayer modes, players will be given the task of killing The Dark Knight and his sidekick, Robin. The villains said to be included in the multiplayer mode are Killer Croc, Deadshot, Firefly, Black Mask, Deathstroke, and “some kind of Electroman character” – who will possibly end up to be revealed as Electocutioner.
Batman: Arkham Origins will will swoop down for the Wii U, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 25.
