With about three months to go before it hits current generation video game consoles worldwide, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have released a brand new trailer to tease and excite Batman fans looking forward to "Batman: Arkham Origins". For the first time ever, a new multiplayer mode has been developed for the game that will not let players use the Caped Crusader, but a certain Boy Wonder and a gang of villains as well, in a new mode called "Invisible Predator Online".
Developed separately by Splash Damage, Invisible Predator Online pits Batman and Robin against Joker's gang and Bane's henchmen, in a 2 vs 3 vs 3 setup that equates to mayhem and destruction for all sides involved. IGN has described the new multiplayer mode as an exciting experience, with players either controlling the Dynamic Duo, or 3 thugs loyal to Bane or The Joker respectively. Gameplay is different for each side, and while Batman and Robin still have their usual array of stealth tactics, gadgets, and tricks up their sleeve, the villains aren't left empty-handed either. Each villainous side has a Detective Mode like "Enhanced Vision" device they can use to scan and see through objects, as well as destructive weapons and gadgets of their own to use to their advantage. What's more, Joker and Bane can be unlocked through the course of the battle, and both leaders have their own unique abilities to share that can turn the tide of battle to their favor.
Here's the trailer to showcase what to expect from "Invisible Predator Online" mode in the game.
