If you told me they were making multiplayer for a Batman game, I'd tell you that I want to play as Batman himself. I'd want to take down thugs controlled by other players, and I'd want to do it in the most Batman way possible. And what do you know, that's just what the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins multiplayer will let me do.
Last week, I headed to a hotel in downtown San Francisco to check out Arkham Origins' multiplayer for the first time. I got to spend a good chunk of time playing one of the game's main multiplayer modes, which is called "Invisible Predator Online."
A lot of what I saw lined up with what Kotaku has already reported. This is the first Batman game to offer multiplayer—both Arkham Asylum and Arkham City were single-player only. (Actually, the people representing Warner Brothers tend to call the series the "Arkham Games" and not "Batman Games," which is a strange signifier that may lose some utility by, say, the fifth game in the series.)
