Multiplayer in Batman: Arkham Origins will only exist for a couple more weeks

WB is closing down the multiplayer side of Batman: Arkham Origins on December 4, 2016.

It's strange to learn that a game had a multiplayer mode by way of an announcement about said mode's fast-approaching closure, but that's exactly the situation I'm in here. Either I never knew about it, or I just plain forget (surely the latter). Here's how Jim described it in his review of Origins:

"Essentially a mediocre third-person cover shooter with Batman shoehorned into it, Arkham Origins Online pits three of Bane's thugs against three of Joker's goons, with two other players taking on the roles of the Dark Knight and Robin. It's a three-on-three battle, with the rival gangs capturing territory and shooting each other, while the superheroes use gadgets and predatory stealth to take them out. [...] It's almost as if the whole thing was cobbled together quickly to satisfy some advertising department goons, so much so that I'm pretty sure that's what happened."

All that said, and as someone who was way into BioShock 2's competitive multiplayer mode which some folks similarly found to be tacked-on given the series' story-driven roots, I'm sure that Origins' multiplayer mode had its fans -- just not enough for WB to justify the upkeep any longer. The company has assured that the single-player campaign "may still be played and enjoyed offline."
