The Recap: 'Return to Rapture & Arkham Origins gets multiplayer?'
Welcome to another Recap episode where we go over the day's biggest headlines, making sure that you're caught up in all things video games.
The BioShock fan in me is squeeing with anticipation and lust for the new BioShock Infinite DLC announced; we all know we’ve wanted to somehow return to Rapture with the new engine and graphics. With yesterday's announcement from Irrational Games, we now know that opportunity will soon fall into our laps! Not only as one DLC, but as a two-parter telling a brand new story of Booker and Elizabeth in this underwater utopia.
Turns out, the rumor regarding multiplayer in Batman: Arkham Origins is true. Furthermore, the slim details that were offered at the time weren't too far off from what the mode consists of. The new online multiplayer mode has a somewhat unconventional setup pitting Batman and Robin against two player-controlled teams of henchmen. Developed by Splash Damage (Brink, Quake Wars), the mode blends traditional Arkham gameplay with third-person shooter mechanics.
We've known for a while now that Activision would be unveiling the eagerly awaited multiplayer portion of Call of Duty: Ghosts in August. Today, we now know when that exact day will be. Wednesday, August 14th at 10:30am PDT. Mark your calendars, folks.
