Warner Brothers Interactive have revealed, no not the ‘secret’ identity of The Batman, but an exciting new mode for their in-development, Batman: Arkham Origins.

For the first time in the franchise, you can take the fight to Gotham City’s streets online. This component of the game blends third person shooter elements with the traditional Arkham gameplay to provide a wholly unique experience. This particular mode is in development by Splash Damage, the Bromley-based, British independent known primarily for it’s work on id Software’s Enemy Territory and Bethesda’s Brink.

So, this new online mode will give the player a chance to play as Batman or Robin, hunting your most challenging opponents yet or you could just as easily want to play as one of the fun-loving super-villain elite and see how the other half lives. Help establish the legacy of Bane or The Joker and if you really want to, play as those bad-guy bosses.

You should be able to get your hands on all this fun when Batman: Arkham Origins is released on the 25th October.
