Awesome, I'm totally down for this.

Was anyone else expecting the Robin to be Dick Grayson? I can't complain though as Tim Drake is my favourite.

There's sure to be some balancing issues, but man, I LOVE the concept.

@godofmischief What are you talking about ? It IS Dick Grayson. Unless you know somthing else, he looks like a younger Nightwing.

So I am assuming there is no split screen then.

@ares94: How do you know it's Dick Grayson? I said it's Tim Drake because he's got the same staff and fighting style as he did from Arkham City. Unless it's been confirmed somewhere which Robin he is.

Simply awesome!

I have a feeling it's Grayson but, I think they just effed it up and gave him Drake's fighting style. I actually hope it's Drake so it can free up Dick to be Nightwing. The main reason I don't think it's Tim is because it is unlikely that Batman has gone through three Robins before Origins. I normally would say that multiplayer doesn't have to follow the timeline but, from the trailer, it seems that they're framing elements from the Origins story into the multiplayer.

@godofmischief sorry I didn't see the staff, my bad. It is just that it's Batman's second year or so, and we know Dick G exists as he was Nightwing in Arkham City.And I think I remember reading or hearing somewhere that Tim was brand new as Robin in Arkham City. (And in the Teen Titans cartoon, Dick had the staff too.) Anyway, we will see, maybe you're right :)

Can't wait for this game man. Kudos to the makers for finding a way to make multiplayer work.

Posted by GodOfMischief

@ares94: That's ok, no worries :) you might be right with it being Dick Grayson, as he has the similar hair style. I think Tim Drake has a shaved type of hairstyle in the Arkham universe.

Posted by Lvenger

YES, at last! I hope they finally found a way to make a multiplayer Arkham game work well! This initial trailer looks promising for the future of multiplayer Arkham games!

@nightwing_beyond: You could be right. Also, I think Batman has only been fighting crime for 2 years in this game? But like you said they might have mixed up the styles of each character by accident.

Posted by fACEmelter88

WHAT THE WHAT?! This might be awesome! This is crazy, I hope there's a beta or whatever. I'm still a little worried that Rocksteady is not working on this one but man that multiplayer concept is pretty sweet.

Oh my God... What if it's Jason :0 The answer we'd never expect....

Posted by GodOfMischief

@nightwing_beyond: Maybe it is :| I'd be very surprised if it turns out to be him. Unless they bring them back into the challenge modes? That'd be cool.

Posted by Ares94

@nightwing_beyond That would be sweet (Jason as Robin) !! Setting up for a Red Hood storyline later ? Ah damn you gave me hope. And for the fighting style comments, maybe Tim learns his moves from Dick, and it's a fighting style for every Robin, so that nobody can tell it's another kid under the mask.

Posted by Ares94

That would make sense.

Robin looks really stupid compared to Arkham City

Holy fish sticks Batman! we may be on to something. I made this to compare. Look at the hair!!!! They could use this to set up Red Hood for Rocksteady ehrmagod!!!?!

Posted by Ares94

@nightwing_beyond Ha, that would be cool, but we shouldn't get our hopes up ^^ cause if he is in the game it would also mean he has to die ! ^^ Wait and see :) One thing I know for sure is that I can't wait to kick some ass with Deathstroke !!

xD

I want to play with Bane now!!!!

Edited by noj

@godofmischief: He looks almost exactly like Nightwing from Arkham City just a bit younger. They probably used the same Robin mechanics from Arkham City so they didnt have to create an entirely new character with different gadgets and play style. Kind of lazy but understandable.

Looks awesome

Looks solid. I have no idea what game types there are but it'll be a welcome addition to the franchise.

It looks like for the moment, there's only going to be a Predator multiplayer feature but we could have an online combat feature too. It would be awesome to have two players use the freeflow combat to decimate enemies!

I actually thought they would introduce combat with Deathstroke in some form of multilayer. The fact that they have ninja like thugs in-game who can counter your counters, I figured that was a hint of possibly allowing the player to fight villains like Deathstroke or Bane where you can counter each others counters, making it feel like you're really fighting someone who's just as good as you are (or better).

Maybe they'll integrate this somehow into the multilayer?

agreed on all counts

@g_man UPDATE: Eric Holmes has confirmed on Twitter that the Robin in the trailer is indeed Dick Grayson.

That's a very good way to introduce multiplayer combat into the game. Timing the counter button correctly would certainly be a hard talent to master.

Especially if the person you're fighting is doing the exact same thing. If done correctly that could open the doors for some very unique combat mechanics for future Arkham games.

Exactly. Maybe this is why the martial artist enemies are now in the game. To give you practice for the multiplayer version.

@Nightw BR, thanks for letting me know.

@war_killer: Hell yes to all of this. If freeflow is in this, it could be amazing butting heads with someone as good if not better than you.
