ArkhamCity.co.uk: It was only a month ago that it was claimed within PSM3 that multiplayer in Batman: Arkham City was a "certainty". With their new issue hitting stores this morning they seem to be giving off a different impression.
if its got co-op i hope its a seperate mode to the singleplayer because i don't want to be stuck with a shitty ai the whole game batman should work alone.
it'd be cool to have challenge rooms w/ co-op. (like how B:AA has challenge rooms, but you can get a patna in there and get rowdy.) I dont think we need a full on MP for this game though. Game is great as it is.. even if it's just SP only.
Co-op missions only would be great. Nothing linked to single player though, would ruin the feel of it. Missions where you (Batman) team up with an offline/online friend (Robin), would be great imo.
I would still probably be very happy with this game if it included no MP at all. Arkham Asylum would have been a front runner in my personal GOTY last year, had Uncharted 2 not been released, I have very high hopes for Arkham City.
true but must not forget the Last guardian is coming out and that is pretty much set for goty
lol yeah The Last Guardian does seem like a favourite with gamers. I wasn't implying that BM:AC should be GOTY 2011 just that I have high hopes that the game will be excellent :)
GOOD. Not all games neep MP...
so true, too many games are killed with mp
A lot of times it just seems tacked on for the sake of having multiplayer.
Know anyway? Everybody else says different. What makes them so special?
they spoke to the guys at rocksteady, in fact i think they went to the rocksteady offices and saw the game in action!!
Not every game needs MP, in fact most don't. Ahem Dead Space 2... Give me a 20-30 hour SP with incentive to play again (good story) over MP any day. All people will do is try it out then go back to CoD, BFBC2, Reach or some other shooter based game.
I dont get it, whats the news here? They didn't deny it by saying, "no, there will be no MP." They just didn't get a confirmation which leaves us pretty much in the same place as before - speculations
