Morning DLC: Video Games News And Rumors 10/13/13


"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.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 Amazing Spider-Man 2” will bring role-playing elements to the series and tweak the way Spidey web-swings through the city, when it arrives next year for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and Windows PC..In development by Beenox, the sequel is set to be released by Activision shortly before “The Amazing Spiderman 2” film’s May 2, 2014 release, said Marvel’s Chris Baker.Even though the first game took place directly after the first movie and the second movie is a direct sequel to the first movie, what happened in the first game is not canon for the second film, Baker said."


"In spite of billion dollar ticket sales, “The Avengers” never got a proper video game adaptation. That is, until now. In “Marvel Run Jump Smash!,” players will chase Loki through the streets of New York–just like in the movie!Disney Interactive senior producer Phil Hong is careful not to use the term “endless runner,” instead calling the game a “super-powered action runner.” Unlike other games in the genre, you’ll be able to switch between the different Avengers, each equipped with their own powers."
