Arkham Origins Could Have Multiplayer
When a rumour is being reported by one reliable source” we take notice, but don’t really focus on it too much. When a rumour is being reported and confirmed by multiple sources, you can’t help but wonder if it’s true or not. That’s what is happening right now with a rumour concerning the latest Batman Arkham entry, which could include a multiplayer component for the first time.
According to multiple sources speaking with Kotaku, Arkham Origins will feature a multiplayer component that puts players wither on Team Joker or Team Bane. Player will be tasked with taking down the Dark Knight and his trusty partner Robin, although there were no details as to how multiplayer could work.

Some of the villains reportedly featured in the multiplayer mode include Deadshot, Deathstroke, Killer Croc, Firefly, Black Mask and more. Considering a lot of these were featured on a promotional poster for the title, it could mean that not all of them appear in the single-player portion of the title. We already know that Black Mask and Deathstroke will feature, but the inclusion of everyone else has now been thrown into the air.
This is the first time multiplayer would feature in the Arkham series, however it’s not the first time Warner Bros. have dived into competitive play with the Batman universe. In 2011 the publisher released Gotham City Imposters, a Call of Duty inspired competitive shooter which played on the lore of ordinary citizens taking up arms while dressing up as their favourite Caped Crusader or Crazed Clown.
I’m not entirely sure that multiplayer is a good idea for a series that has thrived with a strong single-player component, but I’m not ready to chalk it up as a failure just yet. Share your thoughts in the comments below.
