A free to play version of Batman: Arkham Origins is being released for Apple’s iPad and iPhone to coincide with the game’s console versions.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment say announced Batman: Arkham Origins for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch will be available “in the console game launch window” with the Android version to follow later this year.
The console version is due for release on October 25th and is one of the autumn’s most highly-anticipated titles.
The Batman: Arkham Origins mobile game pits players, as Batman, against a number of DC Comics’ most deadly assassins as they fight their way through Gotham City’s most dangerous locales.
As gamers progress, they can upgrade their character to become the most punishing crime fighter in the world by unlocking a number of unique Batsuits and earning in-game currency and rewards.
In addition, those who also own the console versions of the game and are registered for a Warner Bros. ID (WBID) account will be able to access exclusive content not available elsewhere. “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.”
