Batman: Arkham Origins Wii U $10 less than console and PC counterparts
Warner Bros. confirms multiplayer-free version of upcoming Batman game on Wii U will sell for $50, compared to $60 on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
The Wii U version of Batman: Arkham Origins--which does not include multiplayer--will sell for $50, compared to $60 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Kotaku confirmed the news with a Warner Bros. representative today.
The Wii U version of Batman: Arkham Origins will include the same single-player campaign developed by WB Games Montreal. In addition, Wii U owners can purchase the recently announced season pass, which includes a downloadable single-player expansion, among other things.
The PC version of Batman: Arkham Origins will also sell for $50.
The multiplayer mode for Batman: Arkham Origins is called Invisible Predator Online and was developed by Brink studio Splash Damage. Warner Bros. has yet to explain why the Wii U had been passed over for the game mode.
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.
