After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Multiplayer In Arkham City Would Have Been "Average"

Posted on Thursday, March 17 @ 15:45:44 PST by

Arkham City looks great, but what happens when the game is over? Can't you go jumping around rooftops with other Batmen? Maybe a co-op mode with your "partner" Robin? Dynamic duos everywhere are bumming on Arkham City's lack of multiplayer options. Rocksteady dev Dax Ginn explained:

It's the sort of thing that you think could be cool, but when you start to play out what that would mean from a development perspective, splitting the development effort to make a single-player campaign and a multiplayer mode would have ended up with us making two pretty average games.

Our focus is on delivering an off the scale, awesome Batman experience, and that experience is fundamentally a single-player experience. We did consider it but when we thought it through from a production perspective, we thought it would compromise the end result.

OK, OK, so Batman multiplayer probably wouldn't have worked as well in Arkham City as it does in our dreams. Ginn goes on to comment that multiplayer modes are a strong trend but that they can feel "bolted on" when developed for the wrong games.
