Arkham Origins is one of this year’s most highly anticipated games and, from the many trailers and videos of gameplay footage that we’ve seen, it seems like this title won’t disappoint. Any game with the Arkham name in it (even a prequel for that matter) has high expectations to live up to and must strive to push the envelope when it comes to story and gameplay.

The single-player mode plays near identical to Arkham City (it even reuses some of the map) and left a few gamers with a feeling of deja vu. Although it’s not necessarily a bad thing for a game to be an exact copy of its predecessor (see Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood), it’s not exactly great either.

This game isn’t being produced by Rocksteady like the previous two, so Warner Brothers Games needed to impress us with something new and unheard of, and that’s exactly what they did.

Batman: Arkham Origins’ multiplayer mode will consist of eight players and separate them into three teams. Two of those three teams will be led by characters from Batman’s rogues gallery while the third team will be made up of only two players who will take control of the dynamic duo themselves. The Joker and Bane gangs work against each other to seize and hold a command post that is placed in the center of any given map. From here on out the dynamic of the two groups works similar to that of rush in Battlefield 3.

Every kill that the team defending the post makes will take away from the other teams ‘tickets’ or number of respawn points. Once one of the two teams loses all of their tickets, the game is over and that team, of course, loses. However, there can be a different outcome. Players who are chosen to play as Batman and Robin can win the match by filling up their ‘fear meter’. Which is really nothing more than a count of how many takedowns the two make throughout the match. Once the meter is full, Joker and Bane will call off their attacks and the match will end.
