Batman: Arkham Underworld (mobile game) announced

Postby jifw52 » Mar 3rd, 2015, 6:47 pm

Warner Bros. announces Batman: Arkham Underworld for iOS.


WB Games announces Batman: Arkham Underworld for iOS, developed by Turbine, Inc., the developer of Infinite Crisis, among other MMORPGs. It's unconfirmed if this will directly tie in with Arkham Knight, but it is set in the Arkhamverse. Sign-up for the Arkham Underworld beta is available on http://www.arkhamunderworld.com/.
Are you ready to rule Gotham? Become the city’s next criminal kingpin as you fight your way to the top in Batman: Arkham Underworld.

Build your hideout, then recruit and train an army of henchmen to do your bidding. Command iconic super-villains from the Batman: Arkham universe, including the Riddler, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, and others. Grow your criminal empire and then crush your enemies to earn loot and respect.

Defend your turf from other ambitious masterminds, private security forces, and even the G.C.P.D.

Build a big enough empire? Maybe you’ll be ready to take on Batman himself.

Are you hoping that this game will be better than previous Arkham mobile games?

SIGN UP FOR BETA HERE

So essentially, it's like a strategy game? Sounds interesting; I won't sign up for the Beta just yet until we get a clearer idea of what the game looks like, how it plays etc.

I signed up for the beta, but I'm thinking it will be one of those timed mission games, similar to the AC Unity app.

So we will probably be able to assemble thugs, do missions that take a certain amount of time to finish but we gain rewards that we can either use to upgrade our thugs or buy better ones.

Oh please... I hope they don't litter meaningless and grinding tie-in mobile junk games over Rocksteady's Arkham-series!
I mean, I would've expected this to happen with a WB Montreals Batman game, but not with Rocksteady's gold, COME ON!

I don't think it ties into the game. It's like Arkham City: Lockdown in the sense that it's just a side mini game which doesn't affect the console game in any way.

I thought we were done with this. :roll:

Anyway, I didn't play the mobile games and I probably won't play this one but the idea of playing as a villain sounds interesting. Maybe it could be implemented into the story of a future Batman: Arkham game. If AK:Underword is good or at least has a good concept than they could build up on this.

I take it all you other guys have discussed about whether Origins should be considered trash or not before hehe..
But you see, I'm fairly new on this forum even though I'm a big fan of Rocksteady's Arkham series since the first game came, and I just briefly expressed MY opinion of what WB Montreal made in comparison to what Rocksteady makes.. did that sting your eyes too much or what?

So, if you are new, here's the thing. Some time back, every single topic would somehow or the other drag in how trashy AO supposedly was. So don't bring it up unless it is absolutely relevant. It usually ends up derailing the main topic, you see.

Ok, so none of you think it's stupid to be quick to call someone new "SomeLoser" just because you have a different opinion about a game, that for the record is considered by most to actually be the worst in the franchise?
...Are you fourteen years old or what?

Granted being the worst in a franchise of amazing games is not saying much.

Was lockdown any good?
