In addition to an origins campaign, Warner Bros. Montreal's recently announced Batman: Arkham Origins will feature a team-based multiplayer mode, sources have told Kotaku.

In the new mode you reportedly play as a member of gang headed-up by either Joker or Bane, and must take down Batman and Robin.

Villains said to be involved in the multiplayer mode – but not confirmed as playable – include Killer Croc, Deadshot, Firefly, Black Mask, Deathstroke, and "some kind of Electroman character".

Batman: Arkham Origins will be released October 25 for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and PC. There's no word yet on next-gen versions.

Yeah, mass effect 3's MP did get off the ground and was good, but I think a good chunk of people played it to double their readiness rating. The assassins creed multiplayer also took off, but it was also offering something very different from the norm.

But, yeah, those were the exceptions really.

Mass Effect 3's mp mode worked really rather well - but that is most certainly the exception.

I thought the Imposters arcade game was made in lieu of such a need...? And we all know how that went down... very curious to know what makes them think this would be different...

Wouldn't a two player co-op mode going through stealth and action based challenge rooms as either Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing and Catwoman have made more sense. Then again this is the a prequel set in the early days of batman so those characters may not be part of this timeline yet....

...And besides a Multiplayer mode that has been tacked on midway through a single player narrative driven game series has never been bad and a waste of resources right?
