I'm really starting to dislike sources.

Apart from brown. You can't have a bacon sandwich without that.

GREAT, here we go again.

Tomb Raider, Dead Space, God of War..and now Arkham. First thing Warner does is to bastardize the franchise. I can't even be bothered to even try to remain optimistic, I skipped Platinum on both DS3 and Tomb Raider because of multiplayer, will this be the same? GRRRR..

Please don't let this be true, the previous two Arkham games were fine without multiplayer so I don't really see why this one should include it.

It's good to see so many people keeping an open mind about what the multiplayer might entail, for a moment there I was worried people might have jumped the gun and instantly decried it :lol: .

While i will agree that i am disappointed by this move,i remind myself that i absolutely loved Bioshock 2 single player and was pleasantly surprised at the multiplayer(although i capped after the first weekend and never went back)


GTA4 was a pretty big game(stop lying it was massive)and that had a lot of multiplayer modes

same with Red Dead

so i am not going to write this game off just yet

:mrgreen:

I'll wait and see about this.

I'd love some open-world Batman and Robin co-op, but I just don't know about competitive multiplayer. Would probably end up changing so much of the core gameplay that it wouldn't even play like an Arkham Game.

Maybe that's because most multiplayer has been tacked on unnecessary garbage that is only present because of some stupid myth that multiplayer sells games. Its also a huge waste of resources and cash that could have been used to improve the game.

So you can hardly blame gamers for being a tad sceptical.

I'll wait to see on the MP though past Batmans have not been well suited imo. However what does cheese me somewhat is this practice of switching devs or getting multiple devs on the same game, recent s**tty examples have been Sledgehammer on COD, People can fly on Gears, Danger Close on Army of Two and now I see Batman is not involving Rocksteady- it is rarely a smooth transition, not because these devs are neccesarily bad but once you hand the baton over the games seem to lose something- Gears in particular.

I expect before they confirm this Warner Bros will announce that Arkham City could've sold 40 million copies but thanks to the dirty pre-owned buying scum they could only afford to buy their kids one iPad each last Xmas :roll:

@Stone: I used to be open minded but then I played GOW Ascension multiplayer, another SP game that had multiplayer that no-one asked for.

Why bother anyway? Besides so you can include an online pass instead of making a game no-one would want to trade in.

It will be dead within three months because everyone's gone back to CoD, BF, Halo as happens with every other game with unwanted multiplayer. Also as Grolsch says, waste of resources that could be spent on the SP.

If they want to make a Batman multiplayer game then make it it's own game.
