Our friends at SuperHeroHype posted this massive gameplay demo Warner Bros unleashed for Batman Arkham Origins, releasing this Friday October 25th on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, and PC.
The video itself gives a good overview of Batman's new adventure led by gameplay director Michael McIntyre and specifically highlights the Batcave (where we can meet Alfred in-person) and examples of different gameplay and UI.
We've gotten hands-on with Arkham Origins several times; Blake Peterson most recently looking at the game's story mode ("I'm deeply impressed and convinced that WB Montréal is delivering marked improvements on an already amazing game series.") while Nick Tan went hands-on with Batman's new multiplayer mode. Yes, two players as Batman and Robin, and six other players facing off with a chance to become super villains like Bane and Joker:
... the gang members have multiple opportunities to make a comeback and counter the two heroes. Turning on enhanced vision, with a limited but rechargable battery, will scan the surrounding area for life signs. If a team's reinforcements are at zero, then killing any hero will bring back any dead team members, just like catching the special ball in dodgeball (for my ground rules at least). Worse comes to shove, Joker and Bane themselves will bang on a designated door in the map as a last-ditch effort and the team member who reaches the door first can swap places with their gang's bonafide leader, destroying all that come in his path.
Don't forget that WB Montreal recently revealed Arkham Origins would also come with a permadeath mode for hardcore fans of the franchise. Keep a look out for more on Arkham Origins through release, including our review.
