New game from NetherRealm Studios has releasesd iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch which is near console launch; Android version to follow this holiday.
For those who haven’t played the game, you basically were challenged to battle against Arkham City’s most dangerous villains. With the console version of Batman: Arkham Origins now just around the corner, Warner Bros. Entertainment figured it should drum up the excitement by pushing a mobile version ahead of the October 25 console edition launch.
This free to play mobile game looks great and is available now worldwide on the App Stores do give it a whirl, especially if you’re into action games and the Batman series…
Developed by NetherRealm Studios, Batman: Arkham Origins challenges you to prove your worth as Gotham’s Dark Knight as you face off against a slew of deadly assassins and their thugs.
You can upgrade your character by earning in-game currency and rewards and unlock a bunch of Batsuits along the way. The game will hook up to the console version for exclusive cross-platform unlockables “that you can’t get anywhere else”.
Also, some of the Batsuit skins are exclusive to the mobile edition, such as JSA Liberty Files Batman and Batman Beyond. Inconceivably, the game isn’t Game Center-enabled and instead integrates with Facebook for friend invites and rewards (how weird is that?). Note that Batman: Arkham Origins is a standalone game so you won’t need to own the console edition in order to play it on your iOS devices.
Batman: Arkham Origins launches for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC on October 25.
