Batman: Arkham Origins Adding Permadeath Mode

The Batman: Arkham games have always featured a more challenging New Game+ mode, but Arkham Origins is ramping things up even more with “I am the Night” mode.

Speaking with Eurogamer, Batman: Arkham Origins producer Guillaume Voghel discussed new details about the upcoming sequel. We already knew Origins would feature some DLC that would put you in the shoes of an even younger Bruce Wayne as he studied martial arts abroad, but we didn’t know much else beyond those few facts. “You play as Bruce Wayne learning to be a ninja,” Voghel said. “That’s a really cool one. Narratively there’s some added content that will give players a little more background story.”

“[But] it’s not League of Assassins, it’s ninja-related,” Voghel added. “It’s when he learned to be a ninja and learned those techniques. He goes to a monastery – custom content was created for the DLC. You’ll be in Asia in the monastery. The team did a great job on that, it looks really good.”

Of course, that’s not the only cool news about Origins Voghel revealed. In addition to the now standard New Game+, Origins’ “I am the Night” mode ramps up the difficulty even further. After completing New Game+, the new mode opens, and you’ll only have one life to live as Batman. You will be able to save your progress, but the minute you fail or die, the game ends. It’ll probably be the most accurate way to play as Batman, but it sounds like it will clearly be the most difficult way to complete Origins’ 12-hour story.
