A free-to-play Batman: Arkham Origins brawler will be released on iOS and Android later this year, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment announced today.
The game will be available “in the console game launch window” for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch, with the Android version following during the holiday period.
Batman: Arkham Origins launches for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC on October 25.
The mobile version was developed by Mortal Kombat studio NetherRealm Studios, which previously created the mobile version of Injustice: Gods Among Us and Arkham City Lockdown .The game promises “stunning graphics” and “quality gameplay.”
“The mobile game goes hand-in-hand with what is offered on the other platforms,” NetherRealm Studios creative director Ed Boon said.
In the game, players are cast as Batman and will square off against DC Comics assassins, though none were named. Players can upgrade their character and unlock numerous Batsuits and earn in-game currency and rewards.
Players who own the console version of Batman: Arkham Origins and the mobile game will receive “exclusive content” if they have a registered Warner Bros. ID.
In addition to Batman: Arkham Origins for consoles and mobiles, Arkham Origins Blackgate is in development for PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS.
