Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced the multiplayer mode for Batman: Arkham Origins, revealing it is in development at Brink and Enemy Territory developer Splash Damage, and won't be available on Wii U.
The online mode--Invisible Predator Online--will be supported on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC versions. No mention was made of why the Wii U had been passed over for the game mode, and a Warner Bros. representative declined to comment.
The asymmetrical 3 vs. 3 vs. 2 mode meshes traditional Arkham gameplay with third-person shooter mechanics, according to Warner Bros.
The game mode supports eight players divided into three groups: three thugs from Joker's gang taking on three members of Bane's group, while Batman and Robin attempt to take out members of both criminal groups.
