Batman: Arkham Origins Coming To iOS, Android
Fight criminals with the Dark Knight wherever you wish.
Batman already starred in his fair share of mobile games, between such titles as Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes and the far more serious The Dark Knight Rises, which came out with the popular film last year. However, that won't stop Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment from swooping in with another game featuring the Caped Crusader.
The company announced a new free-to-play game that ties in with the forthcoming console release Batman: Arkham Origins. Developed by Netherrealm Studios - the same team behind the brawler Injustice: Gods Among Us - Origins will have you fighting against a variety of DC Comics' deadly assassins through a number of locations across Gotham City.
The game will also tie in with the console versions of Origins to unlock exclusive content through a Warner Bros. ID account.
"We created an integrated gaming ecosystem between the Batman: Arkham Origins mobile and console games, which delivers rewards and unlocks that provide greater experiences for players," said Ed Boon, Creative Director, NetherRealm Studios. "The mobile game goes hand-in-hand with what is offered on the other platforms."
Arkham Origins will release for iOS "within the launch window," while the Android version will arrive later in the year.
